This elegant and impeccably presented bed and breakfast is set in the charming town of Falmouth on the South Cornish coast, offering the perfect setting to explore the town, kick back and relax. Stepping inside the beautifully designed Victorian townhouse, you'll feel a sense of calm from the minute enter. Relax in in its comfortable surrounds, designed in a minimalist Danish-inspired style, and indulge in a little luxury too, with open fires, large freestanding baths and a wholesome breakfast, cooked and served to perfection. This contemporary home-from-home is for those in search of a unique, experiential stay with quality service - a Danish boutique bolthole that is far from a traditional seaside B&B.

Style & Character

Service & Facilities

We could happily while away hours in the stylish sitting room, ensconced on the large leather sofa, in front of a roaring-fire with a board game from the extensive collection.

As the hotel is a bed and breakfast, there isn't lots of additonal extras. There is a communal sitting room has comfortable sofas and chairs as well as a plethora of magazines, books, maps and games. There is one bedroom that also accomodates children and the bed and breakfast is dog friendly.

Bedroom Five won us over with its large windows, high-ceilings and wonderful views across the bay, with the added luxury of a Super-King bed and seating area. We also love the incredible freestanding bath, set on a raised floor, which is perfect for an indulgent soak looking out at the stars.

Food & Drink

We can't get enough of the organic cinnamon, blueberry and banana porridge, and simply love the option of creating your own breakfast. Smoked salmon and smashed avocado on sourdough toast with a poached egg is a winning formula that will set you up for the day.
