The free Wi-Fi signal is weak and data rate is slow but useable for email. The bedroom curtains let in much street light at night. The bed room was very...

Thank you for your review, we discovered a fault with the wi fi extender after you left which has been fixed and is now back to the normal speed. We do not advertise complimentary newspapers, but we do get newspapers delivered if asked for. We provide yogurt, fresh fruit, a full breakfast, toast, and coffee, so do not understand your...

Possibly the best B&B I have ever been to. Laid back, friendly but professional management and staff. I smoke and I often get that holier than thou nonsense when I stay away but no one gave me any judgment. More importantly the rooms are really good, I had to spend a night in Truro after I left here, in a...

There was a warm welcome from Karen and Mike. Room comfortable, may benefit from blackout blinds in the future but on the whole good. Excellent en suite facilities and the benefit of a fridge in the room. Excellent breakfasts, good sized portions with locally sourced produce and Karen's home made marmalades. Great location, five mins walk to centre of Falmouth...
