“Outstanding service and comfort.”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

I stayed here for three nights as part of a small group tour and found it to be an excellent accommodation in a good location. The hosts are lovely and bags were carried to the rooms in a cheerful manner. My charming room (#4) had a nice outlook and was clean, airy and comfortable and well arranged. Good quality linens and a most comfortable bed were very welcome. The bed lamps were a bit low but better than most and the heating and lighting overall was very good. The small but adequate bathroom offered quality towels (and facecloths!!!) with plenty of hot water and an easily controlled shower.

A workable desk and chest, a nice tea tray and good amenities all added up to a very pleasant atmosphere. (Small gripe: the closet was small which was okay but the front to back hanger system was not very convenient.)

The breakfast was excellent, served to order and nicely presented. Dolvean is definitely recommended!

Room Tip: Room 4 was quiet, clean and well arranged.

We stayed two nights when walking the Coastal path. Everything good including a comfortable sitting room which was much appreciated as it was our rest day and it rained!. Dolvean House is a short walk into the centre of Falmouth

I recently stayed for 4 nights at this lovely B & B in Falmouth. I was made to feel very welcome which was really nice as I was visiting our daughter and travelling alone as my husband was unable to join me for the trip. The room and breakfasts were first class and my daughter and boyfriend were invited to join me for breakfast whenever they could, which was a lovely offer. They, in fact, did have breakfast with me on one occasion and thoroughly enjoyed it. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, Shaun and Renate. I shall certainly stay at Dolvean House again - hopefully with my husband next time!

Room Tip: I had a single room on the top floor with the most amazing views. It also had a bath with shower ov...

A great place to stay in Falmouth, very well situated for the main beach & a short walk from the Discovery Quay & the National Maritime Museum. Accommodation is most comfortable & extremely well appointed. The hosts are most welcoming with the breakfast menu outstanding. Would certainly return here again when next in the area.

We had a four night stay at this B&B recently and one word describes it - superb! It is the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in - everywhere is absolutely spotless and well maintained. The extremely helpful hosts pay great attention to detail to make you feel so welcome. They personally greet you on arival with tea and biscuits and a chat about any special requirements, things to do in the area etc. Lots of information about activities in Famouth and the rest of Cornwall. Very comfortable beds - quality mattresses, two pillows each one very soft, one bouncy, extra bedding if needed. Offered to dry our clothes for us after we were caught in a downpour. Excellent choice of breakfasts all cooked to order and delicious. Made us lovely packed lunches for our journey home. Great location for exploring South Cornwall. Car parking available. We intend to go back again next year but hopefully for a longer stay.

This is a lovely B&B. The rooms are beautifully decorated and immaculate. Shaun and Renate are very helpful and hospitable. The breakfast is excellent - freshly cooked and nicely served. Great location for touring in the area. An easy walk to fine dining or a good pub.
