“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2008

There are few better locations in Falmouth for Gyllingvase Beach than Chellowdene - just a few yards up the hill from a fine strip of sand, clear blue sea and harbour cafe.

This B&B offers a very friendly welcome, the accommodation is comfortable and was always spotless. Some of the furniture may be a little dated in places but that is but a minor quibble.

The walk into town takes about 10 minutes but note that the area is rather hilly.

One criticism? Just the short time window for breakfast - just half an hour. Other than that, I was more than happy with Chellowdene.

The Guest House is perfectly acceptable - does not appear to be any better or worse than the dozens and dozens of similar guest houses which line the streets in Falmouth. Very clean.
We were looking forward to a part of England neither of us had ever visited, and booked for three nights, but when it took us over three hours to get there from the airport, we realized that we would have to leave at 4 AM on Monday morning to make our flight, so immediately upon arrival, we asked whether we couldn't leave one day early so that we could find a hotel closer to Bristol. The proprietor said he thought it would be OK, but would have a word with his wife. Nothing was said on the second day. On the morning we packed to leave, Mrs told us that we could leave, but would be charged for the last night, and that she had just turned down a party inquiring for three nights because we were there. Needless to say, we were not in a position to do that and stayed (leaving at 4 AM into pouring rain and without breakfast, of course). To me, this was very unhelpful, and I have to question her business sense in either, 1) turning down an opportunity for a 3 night guest in favor of a guest who had 1 night left, and who had requested to leave, or 2) lying about the whole thing and refusing to accommodate an honest request. It's the beginning of the season, and chilly and windy weather, and I doubt very much that we prevented anyone from staying there. I acknowledge that they had every right to do what they did, but it left a bad taste to an otherwise lovely spring break.

  • Liked — location

This is somewhere special. Owned and run by Julie and Troy McCann it is a fabulous place to stay for a lazy break or as a base for exploring Cornwall. Everything is spotlessly clean and shining, the meals are excellent and the location is perfect, being within 2 minutes walk of the nearest beach.

  • Liked — A very friendly place to stay.
