I've recently returned from stay at the Falmouth Hotel with my girlfriend for a week and found the hotel to be a very pleasant place to stay, offering a welcoming, homely atmosphere and friendly staff.
The hotel is old and this is evident with some wear showing on the stairwell and a few other places, however work is clearly being done to rectify this and so it can be very much seen as a work in progress.
We stayed in room 405, which was spacious and clean and offered excellent sea views, plenty of space and a good wifi signal.
The bathroom was modern offering a heated mirror which stayed clear even when the room got steamed up. Nice!
We didn't get round to eating in the restaurant for dinner, however we enjoyed a nice meal one evening in the bar, food and service were perfect.
Breakfast offered a wide choice of foods, from fruit, toast and of course a full English, although do be sure of order the optional components if you want the FULL full English breakfast.
The week before our stay we were left a message on our voicemail to advise us that a function would be taking place at the hotel during our stay. A nice touch, although I did worry a little about the potential noise.
However, when the time came, the wedding reception that was hosted was inaudable from our room and didn't impact on us in any way.
Our last night coincided with "The last night of the proms", an evening of on the lawn at the front of the hotel listening to The St. Stythians Silver Band where it was great to mix with the locals and listen to some live music as the sun went down.
All in all a lovely place to stay, close to the beach and walking distance from lots of interesting places and restaurants.
Will definitely consider staying there again should we find ourselves in that part of the country again.
