Sandra gave us a wonderful warm welcome and a detailed tour of the spotlessly clean house on our arrival, When I booked I tried almost every B&B & Hotel in Falmouth and was unable to get a double room anywhere, the only room available at Westcott was room 10, which is in the attic and a twin. It is advertised...

Stayed in this guesthouse for one night and wished we'd booked more! Our room was lovely and big, plenty of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits in room. We also had a sea view which would be good for some but we live on an island! It was room 2 which is over the breakfast room at the front and...

We had a warm welcome. The room was very comfortable and very clean. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate making facilities in the room and biscuits. The breakfast is amazing - probably the best we've had in the many hotels and B&Bs we have stayed in over the years. Friendly and helpful staff. Sadly this was a flying visit for us but...

most agreeable stay, bed very comfortable and excellent facilities. I cannot speak highly enough of Sandra who very kindly took us to Falmouth Cottage Hospital when I became unwell. The breakfasts were also excellent with plenty of choice.

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.

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.
