“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

So nice these days to find somewhere to stay where the owners are willing to go that extra mile for their guests! Gill met us at the station, showed us our room and then brought us up a lovely slice of cake! The Chinese Room was excellent - very clean and spacious - I couldn't fault anything! Breakfast (as others have commented on) was very good - a huge choice and again, nothing was too much trouble! Gill and Dave are the perfect hosts and we would definitely stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Guest House to friends! Thank you!

The room was gorgeous, peaceful and clean. The guesthouse is a short walk from Falmouths main high street and about 20 mins to the beach. It is set upon a hill so there are stunning views looking out over the harbour. Lovely house, great breakfast and friendly and warm welcoming from Gill.

Arrived in early afternoon to a very warm welcome and received very effective and informative information regarding places to see and various routes to take around Falmouth. Booked the room based on the Internet photos of the attic room and when we arrived it didn't disappoint. The attic room was delightful with 270 degree views all over Falmouth harbour and provided what could only be described as the second best view of the harbour in town (the second best only thanks to the observatory just down the road, which is what you would expect from an observatory anyway). The room also boasted a large bed with a small but very nice bathroom and charming seating area for the television. Breakfast was situated in the kitchen and was fantastic, with nothing being missed. Would definitely stay again on a return to falmouth. Many thanks to the guesthouse for making our stay what it was.

Gill was an excellent host from the start. Our attic room had an amazing view of Falmouth Harbour and she knew we just wanted to take this in and chill a bit on arrival. We were handed our keys and had the breakfast rules explained and then she disappeared!

Breakfast was superb with a choice of breakfast items or all four if you wanted! The Bercher Meusli was delicious.

Apart from this Gill was extremely helpful with suggestions for beaches and restaurants nearby and great company.

The room was great, clean and well appointed - clean towels every other day.

We would definitely recommend The Guest House in Falmouth and when we come back to the area - will stay again - but want to try the Chinese room next time!

Room Tip: Attic room has a great view but you have to mind you head!

Nice place, very clean and intimate, the Ground Floor Double a little small but well equipped, easy to go downtown, good service, really a great breakfast. Only, the owners a little cold, maybe that day...

We have just stayed 3 nights in this wonderful guest house. We stayed in the Attic room, which was very comfortable and had a wonderful view of Falmouth. Gill is a terrific host and we enjoyed breakfast around the kitchen table with her and other guests. The Guest House is very well located only a short walk to the centre of Falmouth and the Harbour.
We will happily stay here again and recommend it highly.

Arrived in Falmouth with no accommodation booked, drove past the Guest House and liked the look of it. - what a gem. Very nice guesthouse, very comfortable bed and roo and warm welcome from Gill,. Lovely breakfast around Gill's kitchen table chatting with fellow guests. Would definitely stay again if in Falmouth. Plenty of local information available about Falmouth and even slippers to wear. Would definitely recommend it.
