“Fantastic value for money, great hospitality & ideal position”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We needed a hotel in Falmouth as we were dropping No 1 son off at Falmouth Uni and, as it was also our wedding anniversary, we decided to make the most of our Saturday night in Falmouth. Accommodation in Falmouth is now seriously expensive so I was delighted when I spoke to Jane and discovered that they had had a last minute cancellation. The room was huge, spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. The shower was excellent and the cooked breakfast (which we had at the table in our room which overlooked the pier) was superb. Dave and Jane were very welcoming and helpful (both on the phone and whilst we were there) and we would definitely recommend the Prince of Wales to anyone looking for modestly priced accommodation (we paid £60 for bed and breakfast for a room with a Queen sized bed which also had an additional single). Car parking was to be found 5 minutes away in Town Quarry car park (which does have RINGO) which cost £5.50 for 24hrs from Saturday afternoon onwards. The only real downside was that we were kept awake by the flags outside the pub flogging all night due to the onset of a storm, which wouldn't normally be a problem. The only suggestion would be to secondly glaze the window at the front to cut down noise (including late night revellers walking through the town). Overall though, we thought that it was a great stay.

This B&B is of a good Central location opposite the pier! My family found this accommodation very homely. We had a spacious room with comfy beds and a strong shower! Friendly, helpful owners! We parked in a residential area 15 mins walk away near the train station to avoid paying for parking in Falmouth. Would stay again!

We where a bit apprehensive at first in booking a room in a pub as we usually stay in hotels. BUT this was a fantastic find in the middle of Falmouth.
The hosts, Dave and Julie, are very friendly as are the rest of the family :)
Nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfast was exceptional value for money. Hubbie had full english, whereas I ate continental with lots of coffee!
The ensuite room was HUGE, with views out to the Prince of Wales Pier and beyond.
The room could do with a bedside table (to put your specs) and maybe a lamp or a switch near to the bed to turn of the light.....but it didn't detract from our overall experience.
The music in the pub wasn't too loud in the room but if you did want to hear more...open the window!
Can't wait for our next visit :)

Stayed here a couple of weeks ago as was down in Falmouth to go to an event in Events Square. Had been looking at hotels in the town only to see prices were £80 + for one night quite far out from the town centre. I found quite by accident Prince of Wales. Only £50 for the night so I booked.

What a great little find! Slap bang in the middle of the town. Seriously, a fantastic location! Really friendly owner. Massive rooms spotlessly clean. Ok so it's rooms above a pub, you're not going to get The Ritz. It's a little out-dated but who cares, the place is still spotless, and the room is massive.

If an early night is what you're looking for, perhaps this isn't the place for you as they have live music playing quite a bit from what we could see. On the evening we stayed there was a live band playing til late but we loved it, we were able to come in from our night out, sit in the bar and soak up the atmosphere of a live band playing to a packed audience.

Will definitely be staying here next time we visit.

Enjoyable stay at the Prince of Wales. Very friendly hosts. Lovely full English Breakfast. Evening entertainment was varied and different but enjoyable.
Very central and some lovely walks in the local area.
