We stayed here at the beginning of term when we delivered our student son to his digs. We were immediately made to feel welcome and comfortable by Gill who took us to our loft room where we were impressed by stunning panoramic views over the harbour.

The Guest House is everything you could wish for; homely, clean, comfortable and close to town. Just enough of a walk back to aid digestion and get a breath of sea air. Gill is wonderfully helpful and welcoming, we didn't have time to stay for breakfast but I'm sure it would match the quality of everything else. We were given... More

We stayed here in early June while visiting the university at Falmouth. We had the attic room for the three of us, and we had plenty of room. Good cosy corner for a couple of extra beds or just have the comfortable double bed for a couple. Good shower room, ceiling is quite low in places, as expected as it's... More

After spending a horrendous night in the observatory in Falmouth where it smelt old, musky and I couldn't sleep during the night because something in the room was causing my throat to feel dusty and causing me to cough.
