Website is usually very clear and comprehensive with a good range of options.

Location perfect for exploring Falmouth and Cornwall Especially by the local ferry from Falmouth Good amenities within accomodation but requires and uplift Parking was fine and we always found a space on the road so no need to utilise the parking space

A lovely cottage with fabulous views. Spotlessly clean and the owners had thought of everything you would need to make your stay complete.

We loved this cottage, the facilities were great and the views were amazing. I'd definitely recommend it and we hope to return another year.

One bonus was we selected a walk from the walks leaflet that was in the cottage that meant we were able at the start of the week to explore from the front door and were able to see not just the town centre but nearby woodland, beaches and coastal path. There is plenty to see.

This is our second stay at 3 Thetis Place and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend it to friends. Spotlessly clean, comfortable, spacious, quiet and with a view to die for. The location is absolutely fantastic, so convenient to town and everywhere we wanted to visit that we barely used the car. The perfect base for a holiday in Falmouth.

I have stayed in many rented holiday cottages over the years, and 3 Thetis Place is the best I've ever stayed in, well appointed, warm, comfortable and like a home not a rental property. The only problems with the booking were caused by the various lockdowns, and your staff dealt with them in a thoroughly pleasant and efficient manner.

Lovely cottage with fabulous views across the harbour and sea Very comfortable and well equipped and with plenty of space for 2 couples or a family Great to have a dedicated parking space as well as the pavement directly outside the property which you can park on

Wonderful views from cottage, spent several evenings just looking at the ships in the harbour

We had a lovely stay at Thetis Place. The cottage had all you wanted and the views over the harbour were spectacular! We enjoyed watching all the cruise ships pulling in. We would happily stay here again.

This is a great place to recharge your batteries.

Certainly lived up to expectations and we would definitely choose this cottage again.

The cottage was spotlessly clean and the views spectacular. I would recommend this property and will definitely be returning.

The views from the living room out across the harbour are amazing. Enjoyed having coffee on the outside front terrace. Could sit and gaze at the sea view all day. Definitely returning.

This is a fantastic property, spotless, spacious and well equipped. No noise from neighbours or the street. The views are amazing and yet it's so central. Great wi-fi too which is increasingly important. The only thing that might prevent us from returning is that we couldn't bring our dog, but otherwise this cottage is highly recommended and we hope to return.

The Cottage is even more beautiful and comfortable than it looks in the photos and the kitchen is so well stocked with equipment and crockery that we only had to use the dishwasher once after a few days saving up the used items

This was the most beautiful of cottages that we have ever stayed in with the most wonderful views of the harbour. We love Falmouth and always have a wonderful time there. Congratulations to the owners who could see had put a lot of tender loving care into making it the place it is.

Fabulous place but let down by someone accessing the property on the penultimate day

We're so pleased that you liked the house but were sorry about the laundry company dropping the fresh linen off in the outhouse unexpectedly. We've made arrangements to ensure that if this needs to happen again, guests will be informed. Tanya, Customer Support

An excellent cottage with wonderful views.

Fantastic property, clean and well equipped. Spectacular views of Falmouth harbour with easy access to the town. We will definitely stay here again.

The views make this lovely house quite exceptional. It is worth getting up early to watch the sunrise over the sea (and beautiful to see the moon rising in the evening). We found lots to do in Falmouth but were also very happy just sitting on the sofa (or outside the front of the house) simply watch the boats, the sky and sea.

Fabulous place to stay, and the views are to die for.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
