    Everything was super, from the owners, to the food, to the size and comfort of the room. It is close to the town, beach, castle, swimming pool and coastal path, all being reached by foot really close to the property.

    With my bedroom window slightly open overnight, there was aloud, industrial-type, noise which disturbed sleep. However, the noise source can't be influenced by Melvill House & when the window was closed, it was a good deal quieter. I find memory-foam mattresses a bit clammy, but that's down to personal preference.

    The owner, Karen, was friendly and helpful with directions & information. Delightful nursing armchair in my room. Beautifully-cooked breakfast. Plenty of hot water. Convenient location for Falmouth's town centre, walks and Gyllynvase beach.

    Having to come home!

    Lovely friendly b&b making us feel at home straight away and a tasty filling breakfast every morning! Excellent location to the town, the beach and rock pools. Sited on the A road it is easy to find and to get out exploring the rest of Cornwall! Next time in Falmouth we will definitely be staying again!

    Everything was great, maybe half an hour later for breakfast? but no complaints at all. It was just lovely.

    Rooms were really comfy and very clean. Breakfast was yummy and the tea was the best I drank whilst in Cornwall. The owners were really lovely, very friendly and very accommodating. We will definitely stay again when we are back in Cornwall.

    We didn't have a car & could walk from train to Melvill House with cases on wheels, to town & bus station though we did get taxi to bus station when we left rather than drag the cases that far.

    I cannot fault this place at all. Everything was just right. The only thing they did not cater for was the weather! ;-)

    Breakfast was excellent. Crisp bacon and meaty free-range sausages every morning, is an easy way to put on weight! The room was clean, comfortable and pleasant. The bed was really, really comfortable and supportive. Perfect! Everything worked as it should. Staff were friendly and available. If I were to go to Falmouth again, this would be my preferred hotel.

    Nothing to dislike - narrow entrance to parking area but still fine.

    Comfortable spacious room, touches like sweets in a little bowl with the tea and coffee, which turned into mini chocolate eggs for Easter Sunday, lovely breakfast (poached eggs perfect), friendly owners Karen and Chris, room refreshed and bins emptied every day. Easy walk down the hill to town centre. Hadn't stayed here before but have in others in Falmouth - this one will be first choice for next time.

    Karen and Chris were excellent hosts. We had the most wonderful stay at the Melvilll Guest House. Very comfortable rooms and we ended up with a sea view which was such a treat. The breakfasts were delicious every morning and Karen very kindly got some decaf filter coffee after our first morning which I was so grateful for. The location is perfect for the town and beaches. Falmouth is a beautiful place.
