Despite the appealing location and pretty pictures Tall Ships failed to deliver the level of comfort and facilities we expect, especially bearing in mind the comparatively high weekly rental. Spotlessly clean but the lounge/dining area need a big overhaul to bring it up to what we consider a standard commensurate with the rental. It would not need much of a spend to do so - probably 2 weeks rentals!

Thanks for taking the time to get in touch - we were interested in your suggestions for upgrading the sitting-room and we've shared them with the owner. It's great to hear that the property was especially clean and you enjoyed the location. Tanya, Customer Support

The views of Falmouth Habour from the sunroom patio are spectacular, I could sit there all day and watch the world go by.

June 2016

Lovely perfectly furnished apartment in central position, with stunning views of the bay.

May 2016

October 2015

The "Cottage" with the best views in the Falmouth area.

October 2015

Probably the best view of any accommodation we have ever rented.

August 2015

A delightful, quality apartment with excellent facilities within a great location.

July 2015

Tall Ships is a wonderfully comfortable and well equipped apartment. The views are stunning and ever changing, whatever the weather. The roof terrace is great, it's just a pity that the weather we had stopped us from using it as much as we would have liked.

May 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the peace and quiet was fantastic and the views were outstanding.

January 2015

This is a wonderful apartment very well equipped though most of which was not used by ourselves. Wonderful view and in the summer must be fantastic to sit on the top deck. However be prepared for a climb up the many steps to reach the property. We had a great stay very warm and comfortable despite the strong winds.

We're so glad to see that you enjoyed your stay at Tall Ships. It is a second floor apartment, and there are four flights of stairs in total from the parking area to reach the apartment (see description) and a spiral staircase to the sun lounge, but we're sure you'll agree that the breathtaking views from the rooftop terrace are worth every step.

Excellent property in beautiful surroundings.

September 2014

Really lovely apartment, very comfortable with all the essentials provided (well stocked kitchen, wifi, TV, shower) with fantastic views across the harbour. Good location for visiting all of Falmouth (Castle, Beaches, Town) if you don't mind walking up hills/steps but not an issue for us. Can easily drive to these locations from apartment if don't fancy the walk. We had a very enjoyable week.

August 2014

This property proved to be a real 'home from home'. It had everything you would have at home, and the wifi was a real bonus. The details had made it perfectly clear that the steps could be a problem, but despite my husband having had major surgery late last year, and I had had a replacement knee three months ago, it was all worth it, once you opened the door to the apartment. We spent as much time as possible on the top deck with our telescope, just enjoying the general ambiance. Thank you to the owners

What a find, a wonderful place to stay, the views from both the lounge and roof top terrace are amazing. Well within walking distance of local shops and restaurants. Attractive interior, pleasantly furnished and spotlessly clean.

May 2014

Absolutely fabulous. The central location was great - could walk easily around town. The place itself was just lovely - well furnished and very comfortable with great views of the harbour. Thoroughly enjoyed our week.

May 2014

The highlight is the panoramic view from the roof terrace. You can watch all the activity in the harbour.

October 2013

We chose this property for the location close to my daughters home, Falmouth Town and the most amazing vista's, also the parking was a bonus, as parking can be difficult in Falmouth. There is too much crockery and stuff in the kitchen cupboards and no where to store actual food/dryfoods stuff. The fridge a bit small if there was 4 adults staying but for two it was fine. Extra Towels like hand towels in the bathrooms, would be a benefit.

September 2013

Lovely property , stairs to property not for the faint hearted

August 2013

A wonderful and very homely apartment, with fantastics views where there was always something going on. First time we had been to the area and the apartment made an excellent base and we would certainly recommend this accomodation, as we would love to go back again.

August 2013

We have been going to Cornwall for many years, and have used accommodation from self catering, caravans and hotels. Tall Ships did exactly what it said in the brochure.We had a fantastic time in the area, and the accommodation was first class in all aspects. We would recommend Tall Ships without hesitation, and would return if there were four of us in the group. The brochure comment about the steps/stairs is fair, although you can enter the building at the mid-point, with the car parking at the underground level. The brochure description is complete, although we felt the views from the sun terrace were magnificent, so if anything have been understated.

June 2013

A wonderful holiday at Tall Ships. Everything that we needed is here. It would be hard to find another property of this standard with such an amazing view and convenient location. The safe on site parking is also an advantage. As long as you are able to manage the 40+ stairs to the front door I would thoroughly recommend a stay here.
