“A home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at the Red House. The breakfasts were excellent and the owners provided much appreciated advice on what to see and do in the Falmouth area.
We will recommend the Red House to our best friends without any hesitation.

Room Tip: We had a room with a privat bathroom across the hall, which we do not usually consider and it was ve...

As a vegan couple we were delighted by the originality and quality of the breakfast provided for us. The room was spacious with lovely bedding. The bathroom was spotless. The owners were welcoming and provided us with invaluable local information. The location was excellent for walking along the coast, local gardens and the walk into town was comfortable. We had an excellent 4 night break in Falmouth and would rate The Red House very highly in catering for vegans. Thank you Nick and Karen.

I have been staying at The Red House for a total of 5 weeks returning home every 4/5 days and taking a break for a night or two. On my return back to Falmouth The Red House owners are more than happy to accommodate my arrivals (each being different times due to trains).. breakfast is hot, fresh and quick and if I'm after a cheeky lie in they can provide breakfast delivered to my door, which is like being at home (breakfast in bed :)) as my stay as been long I have stayed in several rooms and each has its own unique marker, whether that be sailing or the beach. I have the essentials that I need, clean towels, hot water, hair dryer, ipod dock and a comfy bed. Karen and Nick along with their staff never fail to fulfil their roles as hosts. Once my training has finished I definitely plan on visiting The Red House again :)

Just spent 5 nights in Falmouth with my partner and our two cavalier king charles spaniels. We akll enjoyed it immensely. The Red House is everything the other glowing reviews say it is, and the breakfasts were absolutely excellent, delicious and freshly cooked. It's located a short walk from the town centre, has off-street parking and I really doubt if you could find a better b&b in Falmouth. Very friendly hosts, too!
Can't fault it at all, recommended without reservation.

I've used The Red House a few times now on trips to Cornwall and I'll always try to get in here first. I've stayed in other hotels and B&Bs around Falmouth but none compare to The Red House. Location is easy walking distance to the town, the rooms I've stayed in have been much bigger than expected and have always been spotlessly clean and I really get the impression that if you need it, they can probably sort you out.

Probably one of the nicest breakfasts in Falmouth too and the ever changing selection of home made jams make a welcome addition. Couple that with two very friendly hosts who are always happy to help and you have one of the nicest places in Falmouth.

Our third time of staying at The Red House. Everything was just perfect with a lovely warm and cosy room on such a stormy weekend. Rooms have little extra touches which are great. Breakfast is good with lots of choice and the coffee is lovely. Close to the beach and town with parking which is really good as parking at hotels in Falmouth is generally not good. Friendly hosts too.
