Treated my parents to a weekend away here. They loved it. They said the staff were friendly and the room was clean. Easy access to Falmouth with just a 5 minute walk. They would definitely go back again if staying in the area.

Great location - close to train station, town centre, beach and a fantastic beach café! Perfect! Comfortable and clean rooms and nice breakfast. I was kindly upgraded to a bigger room when there was a cancellation. Very friendly hosts. I would definitely recommend.

A tad difficult to find in the dark but it was more my driving skills. A warm reception and tour of the premises without it being too much,after a long drive you just want to flake down on the softest flat surface you can find. Beleive me 11 out of 10 for the bed... best nights sleep in strange bed...

Very friendly guest house in a great location in Falmouth. Excellent breakfast and clean rooms. Highly recommended. Close to local university as well which helped with the visit but also right by the beach too.

Hi Jonathan Thank you for this lovely review, we are so pleased you felt at home here and enjoyed our breakfast. We find we are very handy to Falmouth Uni, just 5 minutes walk up the hill or 2 minutes down the hill to swim in the sea. Thank you once again, the Westcott Family.

really lovely place right by the sea. Run by a very friendly family. The whole house was lovely and clean. Lots to choose from for breakfast - the cooked breakfast was really nice. Close to the town centre. Would definitely recommend.
