Highcliffe Contemporary Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 82 Falmouth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 November 2012

My husband are from Adelaide, Australia and we stayed at Highcliffe for 5 nights in October when visiting our daughters new family in law who live in Cornwall. We chose Highcliffe after reading excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. Highcliffe exceeded our expectations. It is really fantastic. Our room (the yellow room at the top) was gorgeous with an equally gorgeous bathroom with a fantastic veiw over the harbour. The bed was the best bed we slept in over 7 weeks of travels and the linen was beautiful. They also provided lots of special extras such as bottled water, lovely home baked buscuits, great hot chocolate and good quality tea and coffee. Breakfasts were superb and Vanessa's granola is the best I have ever tasted, I just could not resist it. To top of a fabulous B & B, Simon and Vanessa who own Highcliffe are really wonderful hosts, generous, kind, very very helpful, i.e internet weather forecasts, lots of advise re local area and Simon made quite a few phone calls for us to check if certain attractions were open, i.e St Michaels Mount. They really do care about their guests. I cannot say enough about Highcliffe and Simon and Vanessa, except a very very big thank you and we will certainly stay with you again when we next visit are in Cornwall

We stayed here for 2 nights on a recent visit to our son who is studying at the local University Campus. The owners Simon and Ness are simply wonderful. The whole experience from the phone booking with Ness through to the arrival / greeting and Simon's wonderful home cooked breakfasts, made the whole stay just perfect. The top floor room / suite that we had was breathtaking with excellent facilities, a good en-suite and very comfy sitting area and bed. The Hotel is situated just 5 minutes drive form the centre and has good safe on-site parking. The owners are genuinely interested in all their guests (I think that there are 6 or 7 rooms in total ??) and attention to detail is wonderful.

I noticed that this is the "2nd" ranked B & B in Falmouth when viewing Trip Advisor .... I only assume that it is not number 1 because of the one disgruntled customer who left unfavourable comments without even staying there ...... very unfair on the owners.

I am not disparaging the current number 1 B & B in Falmouth as I haven't stayed there, but rest assured the Highcliffe is right at the top of the tree if you are staying in the area. We will certainly be back when we next visit our son at University. Thanks again for a great stay !!!!

Room Tip: Room 6 at the top is simply delightful !!

My wife and I stayed at the Highcliffe for our 40th wedding anniversary weekend. We booked a double suite which was very spacious and comfortable with a view of nearby Pendennis Castle.
The proprietors, Simon & Vanessa, were very nice and could not have been more helpful. The breakfast choices were excellent, with an unusual special everyday as well as the usual Full English, etc. We would highly recommend this establishment to anybody.

We have stayed at the Highcliffe on two occasions. Once 4 years ago, when the current owners had recently taken over the business, and again a few weeks ago for an overnight stay. On both occasions the owners couldn't have been more polite, helpful, friendly and easy going. They really do take customer service seriously. Better than that, they do it in a way that is not at all like they are giving customer service at all. It all feels so friendly. As if you were staying with a favoured relative or similar. Equally, the service they give is not in any way over baring or too much. Add to this a great location (there are many other B&Bs along the same road, and only about 8 to 10 min walk to centre of falmouth - 5 mins to beach) and you are starting to see why the reviews are so good here on tripadvisor... Oh and Breakfast special highly recommended (we had the farmhouse which was excellent)
The contemporary decor of the rooms is nothing short of exceptional. Incredibly comfortable bed, bedding and all the comforts of a good B&B - tea, coffee, bisuits etc. Our only regret is that we can't simply live in this hotel. It is one of those places, no matter how short or long your stay, you really don't feel like leaving. The couple who run this hotel really have got the balance right between homely and contemporary, friendly but professional, quirky but traditional, value and quality. We will return soon, and frankly, can't wait to do so.

Extremely helpful and friendly young couple who have obviously put a lot of hard work into sympathetically converting this Edwardian house into a contemporary guest house of the highest quality. Excellent facilities/breakfast, good car parking and a very convenient location for easy walking into Falmouth or beside the sea. While this is not the cheapest B&B we have stayed in, it's probably the best. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Each room is individually priced; pay a bit more and go for room 7 or 8.

All the positive reviews here and bang on the mark. The owners are lovely and the room (8) was great. Just out of the centre so it involves a short 8 minute walk into town. Off road parking. Lovely fresh breakfast using local ingredients (where possible). Would return!
