4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

In two ways with luxurious bed linen and towels and a warm swimming pool of a decent length for swimming, more towels and gowns. Excellent breakfast, though fish is charged as an extra - at the seaside! We eat out at night but one report reached us that the dinner was very good.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Duchy is a very well run, comfortable hotel. We had an extremely good sea view room with lovely bathroom. The restaurant is very good, food well cooked and presented. The indoor pool is not vowed large, but larger than a lot of indoor pools. Everything is kept to the highest standard.

This was our second stay at this very good hotel. We had a sea view room on our last visit, which was excellent in all respects. No sea view room available this time. Our 'inland' room, although very good,but was subject to excessive external noise from the kitchen etc. Food and facilities are excellent and the staff very friendly and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights because friends of ours were getting married at Pendennis castle. The hotel is in a beautiful location looking over the sea with all the ships waiting for repair at the docks. We had breakfast on the terrace on both days and nothing was too much trouble. Sadly we didn't get to use any of... More

Just came back from a three night stay and overall I can't fault The Royal Duchy, the staff in the bar and the restaurant are very attentive and the food exceptionally good. Our room was clean, well decorated and the bed comfortable although given it's still late summer the duvet is (in my opinion) too thick. However there is one... More

Took 2 elderly ladies who are neighbours for lunch. Couldn't sit in 100+ seat dining room because a party of 15 business people were using it. Had to sit in porch area at small table and unsuitable chairs. Two of us ordered beef sirloin but it was served as a thick chunk on a tiny bed of finely shredded cabbage,... More
