Guest house has just been redone and looks absolutely lovely. Hosts are very friendly and accommodating. Cooked breakfast was particularly nice. And to top it all, a nice sea view from the living room.

This is a beautiful guest house, newly renovated, so everything is new and spotless. We stayed here for 6 days in early July.

The location is great, train stations and town centre are within walking distance. If you are walking back from town centre, there is a steep uphill slope that you need to 'conquer'.

Jenny and Andy are the owners of the guest house. They are friendly, and we enjoyed talking to them.

Breakfast is awesome, both cold and hot breakfast are provided. Dining room is bright and airy, the common room is comfortable with a nice view. There are magazines about Cornwall, and there are books too.

We stay on the top floor, window is not as big as those on the other floors. We do hope to see the sea view from the bed though. Bed is comfortable, the top floor room seemed slightly smaller compared to other rooms, but my husband and me are not big, thus it is good enough.

Overall, an enjoyable stay.

棒! 绝对赞!

Quite simply the best B&B I've ever stayed in. The refurb has left it looking modern and very cool, the service is great and friendly, and the bed was hugely comfortable. Sea views are an added bonus. Outstanding. Absolutely outstanding.

The owners were friendly and helpful and the B&B was spotlessly clean, after a recent thorough renovation. Some really good points, such as real ground coffee in the room.

We stayed in mid July in fine warm weather. The duvet was heavy winter weight and although we asked for a lighter cover none was available. This made it quite difficult to sleep.

We were unimpressed with the breakfast service, not much notice taken of new arrivals for breakfast and silly points such as milk not put out for self service along with cereals.

It would be easy to rectify these points and I hope the owners will do so.

Room Tip: It's on quite a busy road, if you have windows open in summer it would be noticeable at the fron...

In response to your review, I am glad that you thought the house was spotlessly clean and you enjoyed the filter coffee , however I am amazed at your other comments,which clearly shows either ignorance or a lack of knowledge of the hotel or hospitality trade I would like to remind you that due to the extremely hot weather you requested a double sheet as an alternative for the quilt, this was supplied to your husband in your room within 5 minutes of your request, maybe he forgot to tell you and it got left on the side in your room , as when I took it to your room he stated that the fan in the bathroom had switched on and continued to run without you doing anything, on closer investigation he admitted this had happened, as it should do, after switching on and off the bathroom light.
As regards the breakfast situation, everyone is greeted by ourselves and guided, if needed, to the cereal and buffet areas and asked whether tea or coffee or any other hot beverage is required, and that this and your own jug of fresh cold milk will be delivered to your table. We feel that this means that the milk you receive, especially in the hot weather, is lovely and cold and not luke warm if it was left out on a buffet table. We always welcome and take on board ideas that might help to improve our guests experience but on this occasion we will not be taking on your suggestion as the majority of our guests seem to like things as they are.

The Falmouth Bay has been completely refurbished, so everything is new and modern and spotlessly clean. The bed was really comfortable and the room was well equipped with TV, hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities that included real coffee and a cafetiere. The dining room is bright and airy, with plenty of choice for breakfast, both hot and cold and there's a comfortable guest lounge, with a sea view from the bay window. It was an easy downhill walk into town and the Falmouth shuttle bus stops close by for those who need it. The onsite parking is an added bonus. Andy and Jenny are friendly and welcoming and we are happy to recommend their beautiful home.
