Reviewed 19 August 2017 via mobile

I stayed here for one night with two friends and it was just what we were looking for, somewhere clean, tidy, comfy close to town and not overly priced. The guest house was perfect, we stayed in the loft room which had a double bed, a single and a sofa bed. The shower room was very small, however we only required somewhere to wash so having a plush bathroom wasn't a necessity, although it is something I tend to consider when I go away with my partner. The hosts seemed very friendly as well, which always makes a stay more pleasant. We only had a few issues staying here, otherwise i would have given 5 stars, the tv didn't work nor did the DVD player. The coffee machine broke the second time we used it and the water flooded out of it and went everywhere. Although, I would highly recommend staying here, if it's just somewhere to sleep for a night it's ideal, no fuss, no frills.

Stayed: August 2017

Thanks for the favourable review of The Guest House and the feedback. We checked the coffee machine after finding the coffee impregnated towel and after thoroughly rinsing the pod mechanism, we found that the machine worked perfectly. If the pod is placed in the machine incorrectly it tends to flood. We have clear instructions next to the machine. Apologies for the poor TV picture quality and thank you for drawing it to our attention. The aerial needed adjustment and the problem has now been resolved. Gill

The guest house is easy to locate and there is ample on street parking. Your Host, Gill, answers all and any queries and directs to local resteraunts and other places worth visiting.
The Chinese room was quite incredible, very large with a very comfortable bed, seating area. But the highlight is the Chinese furniture. Chatting with Gill later, she said they had spent time in Hong Kong and brought some beautiful cabinets, mirrors and artefacts back with them.
We skipped breakfast and made an early departure.

Room Tip: Go for the upper rooms, larger and the top floor has a sea view!

We stayed here at the beginning of term when we delivered our student son to his digs. We were immediately made to feel welcome and comfortable by Gill who took us to our loft room where we were impressed by stunning panoramic views over the harbour. Having taken our eyes off the view we were delighted by the cosiness of our room, furnished, as a loft room should be in a simple contemporary style without pretension. Comfortable bed, compact but modern and efficient shower room. Also a slightly quirky area with futon and television. Not a hint of guest house fustiness or Cornwall dampness in this house which is perched above the town, a convenient walk away. Our hosts were friendly and very helpful and provided attention to detail in every way, we felt part of the family and chatted comfortably as Dave cooked a delicious breakfast in their beautiful kitchen. We might offer to drive our son back to uni at the beginning of next term instead of bundling him on the train, just so we can go back!

The Guest House is everything you could wish for; homely, clean, comfortable and close to town. Just enough of a walk back to aid digestion and get a breath of sea air. Gill is wonderfully helpful and welcoming, we didn't have time to stay for breakfast but I'm sure it would match the quality of everything else. We were given the Chinese Room, which brought back memories of visits to China, but in an exceptionally restrained and tasteful manner. Comfortable beds, powerful shower, light, and airy. Wonderful all round !

Room Tip: I think the Loft Room would also be fabulous.

We stayed in Gill and Dave's loft room and had the most wonderful weekend. We felt like we were staying with friends or relatives - it was just so homely. Dave's breakfasts were delicious, especially the genuine vegemite he shipped in for us Aussie girls :)
The room was perfect for us, as three friends - with amazing views over the town and water. Gill and Dave were very hospitable, and gave us tips to ensure we would enjoy our time in Falmouth / Cornwall and see all the best it had to offer. We will be back!
