This is a very good B&B in a convenient location. It is well managed, good quality, clean and friendly with excellent breakfasts and large, comfortable beds in well-equipped rooms. It is set back a bit from a busy road and the traffic dies down at night. Only a few minutes walk from the railway station and town centre. A breakfast...

Could not fault anything. Definitely somewhere to stay again. The room [4] was so quiet, despite facing the road, and we slept so well. It was spotless. Breakfast was a veritable feast, wish we could have done it justice! Karen and Nick are ideal hosts and, yes, we hope to be back. Thank you.

I've stayed in two rooms now and found them both exceptionally clean and comfortable. There is a lovely friendly atmosphere. They cater very well for vegetarians - breakfast is lovely and cooked to order. Great location too. You can easily walk down the hill to the shops and restaurants, or you can walk to the beach. I wouldn't want to...

What a wonderful guest house. Karen and Nick are wonderful hosts; friendly, sociable and very hospitable. They serve an excellent breakfast upon request and the rooms are very comfortable. Nicely decorated and recently refurbished; with a mini-bar and private bathrooms. I would highly recommend this; very close to both the beach and the harbour and within walking distance of High...

The Red House was spotlessly clean, the bed very comfortable, a nice room with good furnishing. It was owned and run by a charming couple, who were very sociable and eager to please. They were extremely helpful and and went out of their way to do whatever you wanted. The Red House is in an ideal situation for local amenities,...

Had a lovely couple of nights at the Red House. Rooms lovely, food lovely and felt very relaxed. I am allergic to milk and can recommend this place for anyone who is cautious about letting other people cook for them because of allergies. Karen gave me confidence that she understands the importance of keeping dishes totally free of things, and...

Lovely welcoming hosts and a great breakfast; comfortable, spotlessly clean accommodation and in a great location near the beach in one direction and the town centre in the other. Great value. Free parking. Lots of thoughtful touches in the room. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the Red House.

The Red House was ideal for our break in Falmouth. The room was clean and tidy and had an adjoining room for our teenage daughter, both beautifully decorated and ours had a view of the river. It was an easy walk from the beach for an evening or early morning stroll. Breakfast was delicious and our hosts were very sociable...
