“Fantastic B&B - friendly, immaculately clean, top breakfast!”
Reviewed July 10, 2010

Lovely B&B. 50ms from the beach, if that - great location for the beach (obviously) and for the walk into town. The room was spotlessly clean and we also really appreciated the green approach (attempts to minimise waste and recycling). The proprieters are really friendly without being intrusive and our stay was very relaxed and very enjoyable. Fantastic breakfast. A very reasonable price for the stay too. We'd go back and will be recommending the Chellowdene.

Stayed here while taking son for an interview at University College, Cornwall. Great position, just 30 secs from the beach and easy to find.
This is a classic British B&B with friendly Brummie landlady. Rooms are quite large and ensuite/private bedroom. TV and coffee/tea making facilities.
Quiet and very comfortable beds.
Breakfast was all you expect, the full English, plenty of cereals, toast tea and cofee.
Everywhere was spotless and the landlady and her husband take great pride in the place.
Minor complaint, the car parking is tight, room for 6 cars ( just) Apart from that , this is a fine B&B

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel, and booked two rooms. The entire hotel was really fresh, very clean and the owners were really friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful, in fact there really wasn't anything negative to say about our stay.

The 3 of us (wife & 11-year old son) stayed for 4 nights in mid-August, having checked out alternative accommodation at nearby hotels and found their B&B tariffs for the three of us hundreds more expensive.
Location - great - halfway up one of the roads off the Gyllyngvase seafront.
Parking - ho hum - just not enough room. Had to leave the car in an adjacent road about 200m away.
We were in a first floor suite which offered some sea views - the room itself a good size, nice & clean & well fitted out.
Bathroom was a bit of a matchbox, but had a decent shower & was well equipped despite its size.
Breakfast - fine. Juices, mueslis, cereals, fresh fruit etc all available plus the standard full English, cooked with reasonable quality bacon & sausages. The narrow 45-minute window (0815 - 0900) in which it was served wasn't a problem for us - just made sure we got moving early to make the most of the day.
Service - fine.
Even after paying to use the leisure facilities (gym, swimming pool) of one of the nearby hotels each evening, we did the sums and worked out we'd saved at least a couple of hundred compared to what it would have cost to stay B&B at that hotel. And in exchange for a small bathroom and some minor parking difficulties, that seemed like a pretty good deal to us!

There are few better locations in Falmouth for Gyllingvase Beach than Chellowdene - just a few yards up the hill from a fine strip of sand, clear blue sea and harbour cafe.

This B&B offers a very friendly welcome, the accommodation is comfortable and was always spotless. Some of the furniture may be a little dated in places but that is but a minor quibble.

The walk into town takes about 10 minutes but note that the area is rather hilly.

One criticism? Just the short time window for breakfast - just half an hour. Other than that, I was more than happy with Chellowdene.

The Guest House is perfectly acceptable - does not appear to be any better or worse than the dozens and dozens of similar guest houses which line the streets in Falmouth. Very clean.
We were looking forward to a part of England neither of us had ever visited, and booked for three nights, but when it took us over three hours to get there from the airport, we realized that we would have to leave at 4 AM on Monday morning to make our flight, so immediately upon arrival, we asked whether we couldn't leave one day early so that we could find a hotel closer to Bristol. The proprietor said he thought it would be OK, but would have a word with his wife. Nothing was said on the second day. On the morning we packed to leave, Mrs told us that we could leave, but would be charged for the last night, and that she had just turned down a party inquiring for three nights because we were there. Needless to say, we were not in a position to do that and stayed (leaving at 4 AM into pouring rain and without breakfast, of course). To me, this was very unhelpful, and I have to question her business sense in either, 1) turning down an opportunity for a 3 night guest in favor of a guest who had 1 night left, and who had requested to leave, or 2) lying about the whole thing and refusing to accommodate an honest request. It's the beginning of the season, and chilly and windy weather, and I doubt very much that we prevented anyone from staying there. I acknowledge that they had every right to do what they did, but it left a bad taste to an otherwise lovely spring break.

This is somewhere special. Owned and run by Julie and Troy McCann it is a fabulous place to stay for a lazy break or as a base for exploring Cornwall. Everything is spotlessly clean and shining, the meals are excellent and the location is perfect, being within 2 minutes walk of the nearest beach.
