This may seem a little mean because the Hotel, the staff, the facilities, the restaurant and the food served have so much to commend them... but... The guests can be a bit of a pain. At least on the weekend that we visited it was infested with guests who "believe" that they are upper-class toffs and needed to tell everyone... More

I can't help but compare this with The Belmont at Sidmouth - both are four star hotels in the Brend group, in a similar price bracket and where we had de luxe graded sea view rooms. The Belmont had a balcony whereas the Royal Duchy, where the room was slightly larger, did not but otherwise, the furnishings, décor, cleanliness and... More

My husband and I and my three young boys stayed for three nights here, we were greeted at the door by a charming but love we now know to be called James. He was friendly helpful and very professional, this level of attention was continued throughout the three days. We had an adjoining room as our family of five is... More

Great location staff and food however for business use probably the worst internet connection I have ever experienced. Shame it ruined the stay. In this day and age internet is a basic requirement needs some investment to get it sorted explanation from staff that it was not good did not help unfortunately. Actions more important than words.

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Duchy for 6 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our only disappointment was that we had to leave to go back to work. Our room was a back room, overlooking the car park, not a problem to us as the room itself was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very polite... More

My wife and I have just had a fabulous 7 day stay at this outstanding hotel, and will definitely be returning. In our opinion it deserves a 5 star rating. The staff are an efficient, hard working and highly professional team, all of whom interact with the guests in a very polite, warm and welcoming way. It's obvious that they... More

If you are visiting the South Cornish coast, look no further than the Royal Duchy Falmouth. From the warm welcome you receive from James at the front door ~ who arranges all of your luggage to be sent direct to your room, to the friendly welcome you receive when booking in, the experience just gets better. All staff are helpful... More

Our stay at the Royal Duchy Hotel Falmouth was most enjoyable. The room and the hotel were spotless. The service was impeccable and all staff were very attentive, polite and nothing was too much trouble. Food in the restaurant was 5 star! Creative, delicious, subtle flavours. Compliments to the chef! Huge choice for breakfast including cold buffet and cooked. If... More

Had a fantastic stay at the Royal Dutchy can't wait to go back! The restaurant is stunning after the recent refurbish and the hotel now looks very swish and inviting. The terrace with its fab sea views is one of the best, especially on a sunny day. Our room was recently decorated, nice calming colours and very clean. The one... More

Looks good on a website and brochure but the rooms are really quite disappointing with cheap reproduction furniture and very tired,worn carpets and curtains. Downstairs in the lobby and restaurants things are quite smart but upstairs really lets this place down with woodchip wallpaper in the corridors painted in 70's magnolia similar to a care home. . No air conditioning... More
