“You will not find better”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just (very reluctantly) left this lovely apartment and once again cannot thank Jude and John enough for their wonderful hospitality and attention to detail. From the welcoming hamper to the fresh flowers you will love this clean and modern, well equipped apartment with its fantastic views and great location. Handy for strolling into town but too handy dare I say for the Boathouse where you get great food and a warm welcome only 5 minutes walk. We say you can't get better than 5 Porth Gwel.

“Lovely and cosy apartment in great location”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed for a week in August and found it very convenient for walking into Falmouth and trips elsewhere. The parking space is really handy. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed including some thoughtful extras. Also a lovely balcony view onto the harbour. Overall we had a great stay.

“Cannot Fault It!”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Lovely modern clean apartment with everything you would need, plus added extras supplied by Jude & John.
Private parking space - a plus in this town!
Would definitely recommend this for a cosy gettaway for two.

Thank you to Jude and John for making our trip so stress-free. We stayed here to have an interview at the University in Penryn. I would recommend this cosy apartment to anyone who anyone who is looking for a comfortable airy base with all the mod cons including wifi, fully equipped kitchen, tv, dvd, hairdryer, fridge and small freezer, towels..... Only a 5-10 minute walk into falmouth centre and pier (10 minutes if you're like me and not used to hilly Cornwall!). Made use of the homemade scrapbook with recommendations on where to eat and what to see. Also lovely to have a look through the bookshelf with plenty of Cornish maps with detailed walks / trails and gardens to visit.

We really appreciated the hamper of tasty Cornish goodies, the well needed tea / coffee / sugar stocked in the cupboard and the milk in the fridge waiting for us on arrival!

I also enjoyed looking through the visitors book, and adding our names to the many other happy travellers who had the pleasure of staying at Porth Gwel.

“Fab - cannot fault”
Reviewed April 4, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Perfect apartment, facilities, décor, equipment and hosts.
Hosts text on our way to let us know the flat was ready and was exactly as described. Flat had everything we needed, the balcony was perfect for a morning cup of tea in the spring sunshine. Bathroom had a bath and a shower and the flat has a parking space next to the building which was super convenient when travlling with a baby. Totally recommend and hope to be back, thanks John and Jude xx
