The best B&B you could wish for. Everything about this beautiful house was 10 out of 10. Perfect hosts. Lovely views. Yummy breakfast. Comfy bed. So clean. Just cannot praise it enough. We will definitely return.

I could not really fault the Westcott. Its location is great situated between the beach with its cafe-bar and the main centre of Falmouth. The beach is a 2 minute walk and the central attractions of Falmouth 10 minutes. We were in Falmouth to attend the Uni open day and this is only 5 minutes walk away. The building is...

The family at Westcott welcomed us and made our stay perfect. We arrived on motorbike and were confident all would be well having a coned off area :-). Our room at the top if the house was good and breakfast was just perfect to set us up for a day on the bike. Thankyou to all :-) xx

My husband and I spent three nights at the Westcott Guest House over the August Bank Holiday. Initially a little apprehensive as we usually stay at Premier Inns having had a bad experience at a hotel in Exmouth but we had nothing to worry about. The Guest House was immaculate and the owners couldn't do enough to please us. Our...

Sandra and family couldn't do enough for us. The place is spotless and everything to a high standard. Nothing is too much trouble. I've steered away from B and B over the years but renewed faith and really impressed. Hopefully I'll be back to this one. Great location for the town and the beach. Well done to you all.

We spent 2 nights at The Westcott and could not have asked for a better place to stay in Falmouth. The room was comfortable and clean and had everything we needed and it was a 30 second walk to the beach and about a 10 minute walk into town.
