We stayed here on a very quick trip to Falmouth, so unfortunately only had one night (and one breakfast!) to enjoy. Simon and Ness were so friendly and helpful - on booking with them, we immediately received a friendly confirmation with loads of information about Falmouth and places to visit and places to eat. We stayed in Room 2, which...

We travelled to Falmouth by train for the Arts University open day and chose this B&B because of its handy position and the look of the lovely rooms. It's position close to the beaches, the town and the university didn't disappoint and the bedroom was indeed lovely, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and an event in itself. All...

Wonderful B&B. Great room with a view to the harbour at the back. Breakfast was lovely. Unfortunately, we could hear the TV in the room next door to us and later, the person snoring. Big issue with sound insulation. Other than that, nice place to stay.

We stayed in room 7 for four nights following our wedding. The room was decorated upon our arrival with fairy lights and Mr and Mrs pillows and mugs. The room was spotless and well decorated and nothing was too much trouble. Simon booked restaurants and taxis for us, and gave lots of tips on where to eat and drink in...

We stayed in room 8. Chandelier in the bathroom (maybe not real!), small down lights in the roof beams, all helped to make it a lovely room to stay in. The breakfast was very good as well - all freshly prepared for you, and excellently cooked. No rush to leave, plenty of coffee and toast to keep you a bit...

I have stayed at the Highcliffe several times, the latest being early last month. As always, everything was excellent - super breakfasts, spotlessly clean etc. and with the delightful hosts of Simon and Vanessa, for whom nothing is too much trouble. This lovely B&B is also conveniently situated for the station and Falmouth town centre.

Mummy booked this for us to visit a friend in Falmouth. What can I say. From the moment the front door opened we felt like long lost friends. There I see not just one thing that stands out but everything. I could not recommend highly enough!
