“Wonderful apartment”
Reviewed July 12, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed in this apartment during the first week in June and enjoyed a wonderful holiday on our first visit to this area.
The apartment was in a great location just a few minutes walk to the town centre. We arrived to wine in the fridge, fresh flowers and some delicious local food.
The apartment was spotless and everything you could possibly need was provided. We could find nothing to fault with this accommodation and would love to return one day.
Thank you.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed July 8, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The apartment was perfect in every way. Loved the layout, everything provided and lovely balcony. Close to the centre of Falmouth with so much history and interesting places to visit. Jude and John made us so welcome and provided us with a delicious welcome pack.

“A little piece of paradise...”
Reviewed June 6, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Where to begin...had a wonderful stay at Porth Gwel. The apartment gave us exactly what was needed, a quiet relaxing time away! From the moment I made the booking Jude/John were so helpful. On arrival they'd left some wonderful Cornish treats and wine - which after an eight hour drive was welcomed! The view from the balcony was stunning, perfect for a read in the sun with coffee by morning, and drinks in the evening.

Couldn't have picked a better location.

My partner and I have just spent 5 days in Falmouth, which we love. I booked Porth Gwel for our stay, what an absolute gem of a place. Fantastic view from the balcony, everything you could possibly need, including a lovely little hamper with Cornish goodies in on our arrival. Very comfortable all round. Perfect for getting into the town. We shall defiantly be returning!

“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!

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.
