We stayed here for three nights to see Falmouth. An excellent choice, this is a proper family run guest house. A warm welcome from friendly people. Our room, 2, had a lovely view down to the local beach and comfy chairs so we could sit and enjoy the view. Unusually the bathroom was huge with lots of natural light. There...

The Westcott was even better than it seemed on the web site, if it was possible we would give this wonderful guest house 10 stars for,friendly helpful staff, fantastic breakfast, spotless rooms and just so many other things to recommend, making this the best accommodation we have stayed in.

Stayed at The Westcott at beginning of June. It certainly lived up to its reviews. It's just a short walk down to the beach, and there is a beautiful walk around the headland to be had. The owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfast and choices were as good (if not better) than...

Myself, my partner and daughter stayed at The Westcott for 2 nights in May. The b&b was exceptionally clean, the staff very friendly and the breakfast was delightful. I would highly recommend The Westcott to anyone, and would not hesitate to stay there again. Just a stone's throw from the lovely beach, and a short walk to the town centre....

Stayed at The Westcott with husband and parents to see youngest daughter do her university performance. Had previously stayed here a couple of years ago when the owners were not the previous owners. The B&B had not changed much and our room was one we had previously stayed in. The new owners were very friendly and welcoming when we arrived,...

I stayed for 2 nights with my Sister and we had a lovely twin room. I haven't stayed in a B&B for some time and I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I though that it was more like a classy boutique hotel to be honest. The interior was immaculate and our room was cosy but had everything we needed...

Hello Mandy, Thank you for your wonderful review, we are close to the station and if you are not driving down here that can be very handy.

The Westcott is an excellent choice for B&B in Falmouth. Near to the Town Centre and numerous restaurants, Gyllingvase beach is a 3 minute walk where you will find the really good Beach Cafe and easy access to the coastal path. The Westcott is spotlessly clean throughout, airy and well decorated. Breakfast choices are comprehensive, including fresh fruit, meats, cheeses,...

Pros: Staff were friendly and clearly trying hard. The premises was neat and tidy, and the location can't be beat. Breakfast was quick. Cons: I chose this B&B partly based on its advertisement that there is "on-site parking" that "doesn't require reservations." Their parking is actually a very space in front of the building, and a small drive. You could...
