We stayed at The Rathgowry for 2 nights as we needed to be in Falmouth to move our daughter into her student accomodation. Even though my husband and I were thoroughly exhausted from the traveling and the sorting out that was needed for our daughter, we loved our stay at this guest house. We received a really warm welcome and...

We had the double room with a balcony and it was absolutely lovely, bright, clean and airy with fabulous sea views. Breakfasts were marvellous and the music options were seemingly unlimited. A very friendly, warm welcome and lots of helpful advice on places to go and things to see.

We stayed at The Rathgowry for my friends wedding. We had 6 rooms in total (6 bridesmaids and their partners). The owners Sharon and Mike were lovely and so accommodating throughout the stay.

We arrived at the Rathgowry on a wet and windy day to the warmest welcome from Sharon. The room was comfy and met the needs of my family and the breakfast was delicious. By far, the best thing about the rathgowry was it's view and distance to the beach. We will definately return if visiting Falmouth again.

I had a wonderful experience in the Rathgowry with a fabulous sea view. Sharon and Mike gave me a very warm welcome and instantly made me feel like at home. The breakfast is delicious and served just as you like it. In addition, Sharon was very helpful with invaluable insider tips what to do in and around Falmouth.

B&B was excellent and the hosts looked after us very well. The breakfast was varied and the food was good. Lovely clean rooms overlooking the beach and only 10 minutes to walk into town. Falmouth beach is great for children and plenty of cliff walks.

Stayed here for 3 nights. It was very clean, friendly and great breakfast cooked to order. Would definitely stay here again. The only blip was that the shower in room 5 was only a drip, as there seemed to be a water pressure fault, when we mentioned it to the owners they said they was waiting for the plumber to...
