“Lovely hotel and friendly staff”
Reviewed September 7, 2010

Stay at the Green Lawns hotel over the bank holiday weekend. The staff are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. It is a little out of town on the main road but if you walk out of the hotel and turn left at the junction [Woodlane Cres] and follow that road for about 10 mins it brings you into town by the river ferries. The leisure facilities are very clean and spacious. There were a couple of functions on whilst we were there and we were not bother by the noise. A very good choice of breakfast and all freshly cooked to order. We didnt eat in the evening so cannot comment on that.
The bathroom was a little dated and need of an ungrade and also the pillows but they are very spacious rooms and I think we were upgraded to a suite as had a nice balcony but not a view. Everything was very clean.
I found it a little surprising that they allowed dogs to stay in the rooms!
I would certainly stay there again.

The rooms are ok but bathrooms grubby. Breakfast good buy service slow. Staff generally very friendly. Indoor pool facilities are much better than the photos do it justice.

Stayed for three nights while doing some family history research in the area.The room was light and airy with a really comfortable bed. This hotel has lots of character and really nice lounge areas so you are not confined to your bedroom. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. A little bit pricey but if you want to feel at home this is the place.

We enjoyed a short break at Green Lawns over Easter. It is in a good location between the beaches in Falmouth and the town-each taking about 10 minutes to reach although the walk back is very uphill! The dining room and lounge are in very attractive rooms, the former with a view of the sea. In general the common parts are a bit dated but the rooms are spacious and well appointed and we had a balcony and jaccuzzi bath which were a bonus. There were a few housekeeping issues inlcuding a spring in our bed which stuck out but they were dealt with as soon as we raied them. All the staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent-no congealing buffet but freshly cooked from top ingredients with a wide menu. We had dinner one night whichwas also very good. Although the hotel boasts a spa, it is dated and does not live up to other spas in hotels I have visited although the pool was pleasant to use.
In all we had a very pleasant stay at Green Lawns and it was superb value for money.

This is our 3rd stay at this hotel in 4 months and the staff are excellent - friendly, very accommodating and 'go that extra mile' without being creepy. The pace is typical Cornwall - easy going, timeless and quality - give yourself plenty of time and expect your evening meal to take all evening - and it enjoy. Yes I agree that some of the rooms are a little dated but they are lovely and clean. Hard bed - good for some - but not us!
On this visit however, the food - which has been superb, was not of the expected standard. I refer to previous comments where food was always cooked to order - not this time - breakfast - full English was mediocre however smoked haddock excellent - and vegetables at dinner were a little tired. Something has changed re the catering since our previous visit and in our opinion, not for the better.
Would still return as we feel this is a little gem. The only disappointement of our whole stay - was eating at Rick Steins fish & chips - NEVER again.
