Lovely, warm, cosy and a great place to stay. Free wifi, lots to choose from at breakfast, owners Mark and Erica are lovely and make you feel very welcome. Also great for advice with places to visit. Close to town and beaches. Would highly recommend a stay here.

We only stayed for one night but enjoyed our stay with hosts Erica & Mark. We received a friendly welcome, our room was fine and we had a good breakfast Sunday morning before we headed back home. Good location for exploring Falmouth being only a pleasant 10 minute walk to the waterfront.

We arrived for a weekend stay and were met by Mark and Erica. This is a delightful little find in Falmouth, and nothing was too much trouble for this fab couple. Quirky little extras that made our stay very enjoyable. Great breakfast !!! .... And thanks once again for the freshly baked bread and our welcome lemon drizzle cake. 10/10
