Our room was spacious with a sofa and very comfy bed. Both bedroom and bathroom were spotless. Especially appreciated was the magnifying mirror in the bathroom (for makeup), and...

I stayed here for 5 days while visiting friends in the area. I only needed a small room as I knew I would be out and about most of the time and the one supplied was clean and well presented, complete with sea view. The B&B is in a great spot too, right on the front and a short walk...

We spent the weekend at The Rathgowry. Having visited Falmouth many times before, this is one of the best B&B's we have ever visited in the area, and would definitely recommend staying here. The service is excellent - from a really friendly welcome to a tasty breakfast, looking after our young daughter with plenty of choice. We would have liked...

We stayed for five nights in this delightful B&B. Its location is fabulous and very handy for the railway station, local beaches and the amazing coastal walk. The hosts were most welcoming, cheerful, helpful, friendly and kind. Our room was quite adequate for our needs with daily biscuits, tea etc and the comfort and cleanliness throughout was first class. Breakfast...

We really enjoyed our stay and were made very welcome. Our rooms were fantastic and the views were superb. We also thought the placing order for breakfast the night before an excellent idea. We will certainly return on one of our many trips planned over the coming 12 months.
