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.

Great B&B with very helpful staff and delicious breakfast. The room was clean with all the facilities you could need, we also had a view of the sea which was a treat. In addition we were able to park on the premises for a few hours the next day which was really helpful.

Lovely comfortable and welcoming accommodation, the owners are really friendly and price is very reasonable considering the location - right at the beach and a short walk from the town and train station. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

It is advertised...
