A true 4 star hotel offering excellent food, friendly staff and very comfortable bedrooms. Over the past few years we have stayed in several quality hotels in Cornwall but this is the best. We will definitely return

Today 25th jan15 had Sunday lunch with friends. Very good beef cooked to perfection and chicken very succulent. Plenty of vegetables with perfectly roasted potatoes. Starter was v.good(onion soup with thyme) and the desserts are very tasty. An included bottle of wine was a bonus with meal. Staff pleasant and attentive. A wonderful view across the bay whilst taking coffee/tea... More

The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. As a lone female I would have preferred security on the inside of the room door, even a simple chain. The lounge bar was spacious with a superb view across the terrace out to sea, however, I did find the staff made me feel slightly uncomfortable. A bit too formal which while... More

The fourth time we have stayed at The Royal Duchy, and as always we were spoiled. The staff are very friendly, the food is delicious and there is easy access to most of Cornwall. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Excellent friendly welcome from everyone at the Duchy from James the doorman to the waiting staff and everyone in between. We had a standard room,which was certainly big enough and in excellent decorative order. This was our 4th visit to the Duchy and we have never been disappointed.

Took advantage of the January Flash sale and booked two nights in a sea view room to coincide with my wife's birthday. Excellent room (115) comfortable bed, superb bathroom, well appointed & furnished. Staff very friendly and attentive, huge breakfast & "interesting" evening meals. Couldn't fault it. Recommended.

I got a single room for a very good price & the bed was almost the size of my double bed at home. The hotel decor is really nice & spotless. For all round value & location it's one of the best hotels in Falmouth ##################################

My wife and I and our friends stayed recently for 4 nights in deluxe rooms. We would have been happy with standard rooms but were none were available. We were surprised at this as the hotel wasn't busy. We felt our room was rather small and the bathroom certainly needed updating, we didn't really think it was "deluxe". Maybe it... More
