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

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Royal Duchy. The staff were incredibly friendly, genuine and welcoming - not only in the hotel but even around town, off duty, one staff member (and his dog!) stopped to say hello and ask us how we were. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious and I was pleased with the vanity desk... More

Stayed here for two nights in June and overall it is a pretty good hotel, in a great location for the beaches, castle and harbour. We had a double room at the back of the hotel, which was very pleasant and nicely decorated, but the bathroom though very clean needed updating; the shower over the bath was in need of... More

I was at the Royal Duchy for 3 nights, and left today. Some excellent points to mention and a couple of problems. I'll start with the very good things. The location is lovely--I had a sea view room that was fairly large and looked out onto the castle and the sea. It was beautiful and dead quiet after 10pm. The... More
