“Great place to stay in Falmouth”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This is a lovely B&B. The rooms are beautifully decorated and immaculate. Shaun and Renate are very helpful and hospitable. The breakfast is excellent - freshly cooked and nicely served. Great location for touring in the area. An easy walk to fine dining or a good pub.

This is a really good Bed and Breakfast to stay at. Really nice rooms, great food, an honesty mini-bar (I liked that a lot), pleasant lounge space where we could relax, have a drink and talk. The owners were really helpful and the service was very professional. They could not do enough for us and were happy to book taxi's and even offer us a lift from time to time. This place really had everything we needed from a bed and breakfast. Nicer than many hotels I've stayed in. I know where I'll be staying next time I'm in Falmouth. This place is perfect for couples and larger groups, particularly with the lounge space where people can meet before or after heading out for the evening. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the building. It was a nice room and no complaints about noise.

Thank you Shaun & Renate for a lovely stay in your lovely B&B, we had 3 nights there, were given a choice of room, the pick in our opinion was the top floor room 15, a great view towards the Harbour.
The room was spotless, the little extras in the room where a lovely touch, plenty of tea's & coffee ample milk & truly scrumptious biscuits which you would only expect in a 5 star hotel, the flat screen tv on a swivel made it easy to watch tv either in the chairs by the window or as you are in bed.
Breakfast was really fantastic, with so much variety on offer you could fill up for the whole day, Renate was very attentive making sure your breakfast was cooked to your liking, my wife was very pleased by the vegetarian breakfast.
The town is only a 10min walk away, 5 min walk to Gyllyngvase Beach.
We were so happy we chose Dolvean House out of many B&B's & would thoroughly recommend everyone should stay here, it is a truly great place to stay.
A VERY BIG THANK YOU again to Shaun & Renate for making our trip to Falmouth relaxed and Enjoyable.
All our very best wishes for a great future

Room Tip: go to the top!!!

We (a group of five) stayed at Dolvean House for three nights, and found it to be exactly what we wanted.

There is very little one can say that has not been said by previously contributors apart from reiterating the fact that Shaun & Renate are the perfect hosts and really do run the best B&B in Falmouth.

The house is spotlessly clean with a homely atmosphere, and the food is of the highest quality. Beds are extremely comfortable and I was grateful for having a single room on the ground floor... a rare find at a B&B.

The off-street parking was simply the icing on the cake.

We will be back !!!!

we stayed for a week at the Dolvean House B&B in Falmouth and I can only confirm the very good reviews it enjoys. Shaun and Renate are kind and professional and have really made us feel at home. They serve a great breakfast served in a way you only get in some 5star hotels. Well done and thank you!

As far as B&Bs go this is as good as it gets.Bedrooms are spotlessly clean with those added extras which makes all the difference -viennese whirls,chocolate sticks,good selection of tea&coffee.Breakfast is served to order & is piping hot.Its location is only 10minutes walk from the town & 5 minutes from a fabulous beach - one of the best in Cornwall.Overall rating -exemplary
