4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was an extremely relaxing stay, although with far too much food, but that was our own fault!! An extremely welcoming concierge ( James?) deserves a special mention- nothing was too much trouble. We were lucky enough to have an upgrade to a sea view which was most appreciated. An absolutely stunning view! Room was spotless and with opulent furnishings.... More

An excellent place to stay for location, cuisine and service. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff who ensure you have an enjoyable stay The hotel is well positioned on the sea front and most of what Falmouth has to offer is within walking distance. We enjoyed some excellent evening meals, delicious menus.

We have been coming here for weekend breaks for the last 12 years now. I'm exhausted of adjectives to describe how great the Duchy is. The staff are superb. Now one thing I would say has changed. It's not a moan. You used to get a dedicated waiter or waitress and I always tipped as they were brilliant and deserved... More

We had stayed at the sister hotel, the Carlyon Bay last year so decided to try this hotel. The booking process was over the telephone and was very professional. Upon arriving we were met by a polite member of staff in a uniform who helped us in and gave us various advice about the area throughout our stay. Unfortunately the... More

Stayed for one night with myself and husband, joined by my daughter and partner as a treat for them on 2nd night. Pillows were really hard but got them changed in our room. 1st night food was ok, 2nd night for 4 of us was poor. The choice on dinner menu was poor, none of the 4 of us wanted... More

Quality hotel. I stayed here with my mother in April/May 2014 and we have been waiting for an opportunity to go back ever since. The staff we met were attentive with nothing of any trouble, but still unhurried and genuine enough to have a chat when the time allowed. The Cornish way. Great food and drinks, very nice rooms, and... More

The hotel was amazing. The staff were polite and friendly and the room was gorgeous. We could not fault anything. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The location and views from there were perfect.

Lovely welcome lovely rooms Excellent service from the moment we arrived and throughout the day. The location is fabulous and the chocolate fudge brownie was delicious. Concierge and Alison "the terrace" waitress were a credit to the hotel.

Despite almost continuous rain and mist for 4 of the 5 days we stayed there, this was a most enjoyable holiday. The staff could not be more friendly and supportive. The food was first class. The rooms are very comfortable.One of the best hotels we have stayed in in Britain. A truly first class hotel
