We were on a week's coastal path walk in the middle of May staying in a different B&B each night and Falmouth was at the end of an18 mile stretch from Porthallow. We had researched Trip Advisor before booking so felt pretty confident about The Westcott - and we were not disappointed. The guest house is easy to find when on the coastal footpath - just look for the burnt out shell of the Best Western hotel and the Westcott is just up the road! First introductions are important and we found that the owner, Sally, had the right customer focus from the outset. We felt welcome as we took our boots off and left them in the hall. The room wasn't the largest of the week but It was spotlessly clean and felt comfortable. Luckily enough, there was a separate well-appointed bathroom directly opposite our bedroom door and we had the luxury of a warm bath as well - sheer bliss! We wanted to eat in the evening but didn't fancy walking too far. Sally recommended the recently refurbished restaurant at the Pavillion Theatre which is not very far away. If you are thinking of somewhere to eat in Falmouth, we too would recommend it. The restaurant has a light and airy feel to it combined with good views. The following morning, breakfast at The Westcott was also excellent with a wide variety of cereals, fruit and cooked items. The very pleasant and helpful waitress made sure that we had more than enough calories for the day's walk ahead. Of all the guest houses we stayed in during the week this was the one that looked and felt like a small hotel and we unreservedly recommend it.
