Built in the early part of the last century, Poltair is an eleven bedroom guesthouse set in the centre of three elegant houses.
It is ideally situated in a quiet residential road with easy street parking, less than 100 yards from the promenade and a short walk to both Castle Beach & Gyllingvase Beach
(1 of only a few Blue Flag beaches in Cornwall), located on a beautiful stretch of Falmouth Bay.
The building is south-east facing so the sea view rooms enjoy the sunshire virtually all day.
The panoramic views of Falmouth Bay & Pendennis Castle from the top floor are believed to be amongst the best in Falmouth.
We are located within easy reach of Custom House Quay and the Prince of Wales Pier for boat trips,
and it's just a short walk into Falmouth's town centre where you will find a wide variety of shops,
pubs and restaurants including Rick Stein's fish & chips (his first venture outside Padstow).
There is also a bowling alley, an art gallery, a new multi screen cinema and the National Maritime
If you fancy something a bit different there is even a place where fish will give you a pedicure.
In the summer months you can enjoy nightly entertainment at the nearby Princess Pavilion (and on most nights during the rest of the year).
Much of Cornwall is within easy reach of Falmouth and is an hour (or less) travel time by car,
e.g. Lands End, the Lizard, Minack, Padstow, Truro, St Ives, Penzance and St Michael's Mount.
The finest gardens are also within easy reach, e.g. Trebah, Heligan, Glendurgan and the Eden Project.
The famous 'all year' Falmouth climate is one of the warmest in the British Isles and therefore the area has an abundance of exotic trees and plants.
For those guests who prefer not to drive there is a good bus and rail service and a variety of interesting boat trips.
