The hotel is on the seafront - 10 minutes level walk from the centre of Falmouth. Built in the 1880s, it remains smart, and beautifully decorated. Everything is so clean, and the staff are the group's biggest asset; nothing is too much trouble, and the warm welcome and smiles are 100% sincere. Not really a hotel for young families, and...

I recently organised a weekend away for our Rotary club and from the moment that I made enquiries in June 2015 to when we went on the 29th/30th January 2016 I received very good help and co-operation from the Hotel staff. I had 35 members and guests attending for the weekend and the feedback from ALL members was that everyone... More

Staff polite and helpful; sea facing room was light and airy, nicely decorated and linens crisp, as you would expect. Fresh orchids in room. Breakfast good and food imaginative and beautifully presented. Shame about the weather! Would stay here again.

We had a sea view room on the second floor which was very clean and well appointed. Extremely comfortable bed and relatively spacious. We enjoyed tea,coffee and cakes in the conservatory with good service from... More

We have stayed at the Royal Duchy in Falmouth before and once again cannot find any fault with this great hotel of the Brend group. You are guaranteed an excellent stay from start to finish, and although quiet for this time of year the service does not lapse in any way. From the concierge through to waiters and room maids...

I have just stayed 4 nights at The Royal Duchy and cannot praise the staff enough. They are superb, professional and cheerful at all times and make the guests feel that it's like 'home from home'. The food in the restaurant is superb and my wife and I look forward to the dinner with eager anticipation every time we stay.... More

Great visit to the Royal Duchy. Friendly staff, well appointed and comfortable room. There was a large party in for dinner but that made no difference to the service we received. Food was served quickly, was piping hot and delicious and staff were attentive without being obtrusive. Lovely breakfast next morning. Over all a really nice weekend. Will definitely visit... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful, as well as being super efficient. Food was amazing, especially when they had to cater a five course meal for 22 of us. There is free wifi and parking on site, as well as a swimming pool. They are currently refurbishing the 2nd floor, but there was no disruption at all.

Could not have asked for better. Staff were lovely, hotel was excellent, as was food. Everything in fact. Could have done with more time at Eden Project but do not think that had anything to do with hotel.
