Superb location with excellent, far-reaching views over Falmouth Bay yet within walking distance of the town centre and nearby beaches. Brilliant staff - well-trained, personable and efficient. For example, my husband wished to store his bike during our stay and the staff were very accommodating and helped with this. Rooms beautifully presented with good facilities - lack of air-conditioning was... More

We stayed here for one night, and whilst our room was a small double, it was beautifully furnished, and was fine for our needs. The hotel provided a fan which was very welcome, as we couldn't open the windows, and so the room became very stuffy without it. We ate dinner and breakfast here, and the food and service quality...

We have just returned from a great stay at the RDH. Staff all very friendly and helpful, Michelle the beauty therapist was lovely and friendly. We ate from the Terrace menu one night and all was great, risotto was the best I've ever had! Rooms spotlessly clean and beds soooo comfortable. An amazing view from the terrace and an easy... More

Our stay at The Royal Duchy was faultless. We were met by James upon arrival in the car park. From then on check in was done with a minimum of fuss. Our room 219 was spotless and remained so during our stay, due to the dedication of the housekeeping staff. The restaurant was of a high standard with the maître... More

Fabulous hotel which is immaculate throughout. Staff are very attentive and friendly. Superb food in elegant surroundings. Excellent leisure facilities with the best views over Falmouth Bay. True 4 Star experience. The only gripe being the rooms which were very hot and lacked adequate ventilation. Special thanks to Daisy who looked after our every need

The hotel is in a great location right on the seafront and, through the rear of the hotel, only a short walk into Falmouth. All the staff we encountered during our stay were friendly, efficient and keen to help. There is plenty of parking on-site and some quiet roads behind the hotel if this ever became an issue. Our general... More

Stayed 4 nights at the hotel and let me deal with the positives first. All the rooms public and bedrooms beautifully appointed and kept. We chose a superior sea view room at a premium. Swimming pool area is nice. The staff are very good, extremely polite and helpful particularly our waitress from Latvia and the hall porter. We stayed at... More
