We have recently stayed at Melvill House B&B which has the perfect location for seeing Falmouth. Close to the clean beaches & castle and a short stroll to town & train station. The hosts were simply wonderful and the poached eggs & bacon are simply the best. Very comfortable bed and a powerful shower. Would definitely recommend highly and will... More

Breakfast was brilliant with fresh fruit, cereals and cooked breakfast. Coffee was lovely and strong. Scrambled eggs perfectly cooked. Nothing was too much trouble.... More

Delightful people run this guest house up the hill from the main street. Plenty of fresh air and clean rooms. Good parking is available. THere is a good amount of storage space for clothes etc. and a decent sized bathroom with good shower pressure.

Stayed here for a few days and it was great. Room was clean and had great facilities, including a small fridge. Wi fi reached all the way to the top of the house and the breakfast was very nice. Convenient for the town and has parking round the back. Would recommend this place.
