We met up with friends for lunchtime meal. Near Tourist office is The Falcon Hotel. On a threatening to rain day, we decided to try the Falcon Hotel. Why although bar area feels a little dated, they signed a welcome for dogs that are well behaved allowed in a quiet separated area of bar/restaurant having around three tables of four... More

We called in for a meal at the Coachman's Bar, There was a very good choice of meals and very reasonable prices. The wine was superb and again, very good value. We had a lovely evening and I spotted a poster saying there was going to be a Celtic band the following night, so we booked in again and once... More

On our last review of the Falcon Hotel, in particular Coachman's Bar, we were not very complimentary or flattering due to a very upsetting incident that occurred during our stay on our wedding anniversary, we vowed never to set foot in the premises again. But our affection for the best restaurant and hotel in Bude got the better of us... More

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to rectify your disappointment from the situation that developed during your last visit to the hotel. To explain to any readers of my reply, the situation referred to was a customer who after attending a funeral wake became unruly and instigated a fracas in the bar. Although the incident was very...

My husband and I stayed overnight for a relatives wedding reception. The function room was immaculate, the food (pre chosen) was excellent, the time between courses given the number of people involved was very good. Queues were inevitable at the bar, the hotel was very busy. We were offered a special overnight rate as wedding guests (£110 per room per... More

Following your review and subsequent to my telephone call with you on Tuesday afternoon I thought I would confirm details of our conversation in writing. Unfortunately I didn’t receive any details of your experience until Tuesday morning when the Restaurant Manager and the Receptionist concerned were next on duty. They both passed all the details to me and this was... More

Finding a hotel room is one thing over a holiday weekend, getting a parking space quite another. The Falcon offered both as well as a pleasant location, close to town, canal and beach. The rooms were comfortable, staff helpful and food good, all at a price offering far better value than some other hotels that offered no more, if as... More

The location, the food, the super friendly service, spotless and....it has it all. We stayed 2 nights and had a great time at the Falcon. And Bude, what a terrific place - we plan to stay longer next time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overlooking the historic Bude Canal, with lovely walled gardens and just a short walk to the beaches and shops, the Falcon Hotel has a most attractive location. Established in 1798, it still retains that old world charm and atmosphere. The bedrooms are very well appointed, and have flat screen televisions with freeview and Sky. The hotel has an excellent local reputation for the quality of food, both in the Coachman’s Bar and Tennyson’s Restaurant. ... more   less
