“Perfect birthday/new year trip to cornwall”
Reviewed January 5, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

My wife and I have recently returned from a trip to Falmouth between Christmas and the New Year, where we stayed in this great self catering apartment.

The apartment is in a great location in a new build near one end of Falmouth high street. It is well presented and the extra touches like the bottle of wine and locally sourced Cornish produce waiting for us on arrival made us feel right at home.

The weather held out for us and we were even able to have breakfast on the balcony overlooking the harbour on two mornings.

We would highly recommend this apartment to couples looking for a romantic break in Falmouth.

What a lovely apartment. It is in a perfect location just a short walk to all the amenities. There were fresh flowers in the hall and also on the dining table and fresh herbs on the kitchen worktop. The welcome pack was also a lovely touch and was really appreciated. We could not fault the apartment. Falmouth town is bustling, there are a lot of shops, pubs and cafes. Something for everyone. We really enjoyed our stay there. It's a shame all holiday accommodation isn't as good as this!

We have just returned from a five night stay at 5 Porth Gwel and it was flawless!
The owners were very welcoming, providing us with a bottle of wine and a lovely hamper. This was a really nice touch and we enjoyed the Cornish treats!
The apartment is clean, cosy and homely. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony and looking at the boats. It is great value for money!
Falmouth itself was perfect for us and we would definitely recommend 5 Porth Gwel to others. We plan to visit again next year!
