“FAB U LOUS”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have stayed in Falmouth a number of times visiting our daughter at University. Whilst we have always been happy with the places we have stayed in this was by far the best. Lovely welcome, very clean and bright accommodation. The harbour view from balcony was a very nice bonus. We hope to stay again.

“A Little Gem!”

A wonderful little apartment with all the comforts of home. Immaculate furnishings and fittings with all the extra touches that make a holiday special. After 50 years of self catering I can honestly say that this was the cleanest and most welcoming we have been in. The pristine oven was certainly a first for me!

Thanks to the owners for making our stay so enjoyable.

“You will not find better”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just (very reluctantly) left this lovely apartment and once again cannot thank Jude and John enough for their wonderful hospitality and attention to detail. From the welcoming hamper to the fresh flowers you will love this clean and modern, well equipped apartment with its fantastic views and great location. Handy for strolling into town but too handy dare I say for the Boathouse where you get great food and a warm welcome only 5 minutes walk. We say you can't get better than 5 Porth Gwel.

“Lovely and cosy apartment in great location”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed for a week in August and found it very convenient for walking into Falmouth and trips elsewhere. The parking space is really handy. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed including some thoughtful extras. Also a lovely balcony view onto the harbour. Overall we had a great stay.
