We really enjoyed our 3 day stay in this hotel as a base for exploring the local great Cornish gardens. Service was excellent, the rooms/bathrooms were immaculate and comfortable and there was free wifi. Breakfast was really good and served speedily and attentively. We will definitely return for another visit and next time will be equipped to use the lovely... More

Although the rooms are somewhat small, they are comfortable, clean & we had a great sea view. The room got quite hot, but opening a window slightly sorted the air flow & cooled the room sufficiently. The bathroom looked like it had been recently renovated, it's compact, clean, has a decent shower. The hotel has a great indoor pool &... More

Actually just booking this hotel again for a few weeks time!! As always staff were more than attentive. I love the new decor in the restaurant, it has really bought it up to date without it being too contemporary. Wonderful location, close enough to walk into Falmouth and the view from the sea view rooms is stunning and well worth... More

The Royal Duchy is a fine Edwardian building updated and well decorated with usual mod cons. It has a pretty garden setting overlooking Falmouth's seafront and the staff are efficient and welcoming. The large dining room is grand and quite formal. We only took breakfast there and this was good quality (although charging extra for an espresso coffee or a... More

I've just returned from a two-night stay with my young family at the Royal Duchy. It's a nice hotel, with great views and very attentive and courteous staff. The breakfast was good (but would be better if they had proper HP sauce instead of the cheap stuff they served up) and the location is great. Just one problem... (actually two... More

We loved the beachfront location with Pendennis Castle within few minutes walk. The hotel was quiet, comfortable with an indoor pool which we enjoyed every morning before breakfast. Breakfast was substantial and well prepared. Service was always efficient and delivered with a smile.

The good - You will find 95% of the staff very friendly and very helpful! the rooms are nicely laid out and facilities mostly are very good. Beautiful views if you care to go out on the terrace or if your fortunate enough to have a Seaview room. The Bad - I was looking forward to staying in a nice... More

But then we were not looking for it. What we received was a curate's egg of an experience on our four night half board stay. Having stayed with Brend hotels in Barnstaple we had high expectations and these were met in many respects. Everyone without exception was friendly and welcoming. The public rooms were well appointed, the views over the... More

I spent two very enjoyable nights here last month. I'd just spent two very hectic weeks attending a reunion plus the very long haul from my home in Australia. I wanted somewhere relaxing to stay on my final 2 nights in the UK. I found this hotel simply by driving by. It was a brilliant sunny day & I had... More
