“Long weekend ”
Reviewed March 14, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

What a beautiful and well looked after apartment! The owners were brilliant with contact from the day of booking and went above and behind to text on the day of arrival that the apartment was ready an hour early - a lovely little touch! A hamper of Cornish treats and wine left on the table which were all very yummy. Whatever you could need is in the apartment, the owners have clearly put a lot of time and effort into the place. Falmouth is a lovely place and we hope to come back and stay soon!
Apologies Jude - I wrote a review on number 4 by mistake before this!

“The Perfect Place!”

We loved every moment of our weekend break at Porth Gwel. Great communication with the owners made the apartment very easy to find.
The apartment was beautiful, spotlessly clean and every little detail taken care of.
Easy to reach the town - we parked up and walked everywhere for the three days.

Thank you so much for the welcome pack - very much appreciated.

“Treat yourself to a home from experience in a perfect location”

My sister and I were so pleased to have found this lovely apartment. Everything you could possibly want in one place. No rushing out to get supplies, there was plenty in the cupboard to set you up without the mandatory trip to the shops. Welcome pack was a lovely surprise and the flowers and fresh herbs were a special touch. The location was perfect for the town, just a short stroll to the shops and small cafe's that Falmouth has in abundance. We hope to visit again. I would have no hesitation in recommending to friends and family.

“FAB U LOUS”
Reviewed October 18, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have stayed in Falmouth a number of times visiting our daughter at University. Whilst we have always been happy with the places we have stayed in this was by far the best. Lovely welcome, very clean and bright accommodation. The harbour view from balcony was a very nice bonus. We hope to stay again.

“A Little Gem!”

A wonderful little apartment with all the comforts of home. Immaculate furnishings and fittings with all the extra touches that make a holiday special. After 50 years of self catering I can honestly say that this was the cleanest and most welcoming we have been in. The pristine oven was certainly a first for me!

Thanks to the owners for making our stay so enjoyable.

“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.
