“Brilliant B&B and wonderful hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

This B&B is tucked away in the depths of the Cornish countryside on the far side of St Keverne if you approach from that direction. The view across Falmouth Bay from our room was to die for. Clive and Alicia are incredibly friendly and provide wonderful meals. This B&B is way above much of the 3 star competition.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view across Falmouth Bay!

Just what we wanted as a base in a beautiful part of cornwall. I was clean and comfortable. Clive and Alicia were very welcoming, and the breakfasts were great!

Came across this B & B on the Visit Cornwall web-site, it was getting late in the day and we were struggling to find somewhere. Booked in for the night and ended up staying for 4. Clive and Alicia are great hosts, they show interest in their guests in a most relaxed manner, their B & B is tucked away in a most beautiful and unspoilt valley. The beds are the best I have slept in and the B & B is quirky in décor and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was huge! Definitely will go back.

A lovely place to stay; good breakfasts; a very comfortable, clean room; an interesting house and friendly hosts. Very good location if you are walking the Coastal Path and good value for money.

Stayed here for two nights, whilst visiting family with a holiday home in nearby in St. Keverne. The family room was a very nice size, the double bed very comfortable. Good selection of food from the breakfast menu too.
Just to add, it was our 1st visit to Porthallow, & we hope to go return soon.

Stayed overnight on a Coast Path walk with friends. Clive is a good host, chatty and helpful. The place itself needs some doing up, but having said that, it's clean, and decorated charmingly - more than enough for us! Porthhallow is a small and quiet place, but serves as a good stopping point or a place to explore the nature trails around, so Clive's place is a good place to relax to stay at.

Lovely long weekend at this B & B, decor a bit unusual but spotless and very friendly owners Clive & Alicia made it a memorable stay. The breakfasts were very good - especially Clive's French toast!
Gallen-Treath is well placed in the little village i.e. walking distance to the pub!
Great place for a break , although the village is quite remote, lot of very narrow winding lanes to negotiate .
