This B&B is in a quiet road just a couple of minutes walk from the main Gyllyngvase Beach. The town is ten or fifteen minutes walk away and has numerous pubs and restaurants. We received a warm, friendly welcome and check-in was very simple. We had booked the kingsize room and it certainly lived up to our expectations. A huge...

The Westcott was a lovely stay, just what we needed after a busy few weeks at work! Lovely room, great location and the staff were super friendly. Easy walk into town, breakfasts were amazing (scrambled eggs were on point!) and so relaxing. Lovely view from the room too!

What a beautiful, warm and welcoming bed and breakfast. The staff were very accommodating and lovely to talk to. The room was a decent size and very comfortable. The cooked breakfast was good as was the variety on the continental. Lovely place.

We travelled down for my partners work on the Sunday and were welcomed by a lovely lady even though it was later than expected at 7.00pm. The room was lovely and had everything you would need. All was in good condition and the bed was so comfy 😀. Breakfast was nice in the morning and plenty to chose from. All...

lovely comfortable room with en-suite. very quiet area (but this was out of season). Parking might be a problem at peak times. Very extensive choice for breakfast - we had the cooked breakfast which was delicious. Very friendly and welcoming staff close to the beach and beach café. Also a nearby spa is open to non-members.

So friendly and welcoming we felt at home straight away. The owners made sure we had everything we could have wished for. Good breakfast with tasty food and proper coffee. We thought that there might be a problem parking but the system of keys being left if you were out was a sensible one.

We found the B&B to be very clean with a good choice for breakfast. There was a spacious lounge area on the ground floor. The owners & staff were extremely pleasant & offered a warm welcome. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed there for 1 night for University interview. Room very clean (room 10) and definately not a cold room. Careful if you are tall with this room as it is in the roof and there are a couple of beams to catch you out.

Treated my parents to a weekend away here. They loved it. They said the staff were friendly and the room was clean. Easy access to Falmouth with just a 5 minute walk. They would definitely go back again if staying in the area.
