My wife and I booked a four night stay here as we have visited Falmouth many times but only ever for a day and wanted the chance to explore what it has to offer.
We were made to feel welcome on arrival and shown to Harvey's room (10) on the top floor which afforded great views across the bay and had the bonus of a Velux window at the rear which was very useful as temperatures were approaching 30 degrees for the duration of our stay. The shower and toilet facilities were compact but adequate for our needs. Bed was very comfortable and room was kept spotless. Breakfast was lovely with a good choice of fruit, yoghurt,cereals and a sensible sized full breakfast offered along with options if you don't fancy the full "Monty".
The Hotel is located approximately 15 minutes walk from the town centre but allow 20 to get back as it is uphill. There is also a stop for the shuttle bus nearby which at £2 for an all day ticket is another option. We used this as I have recently had a knee replacement and although I did manage the walk down to the town one day, I don't think it would have done me any good to walk back up. The lovely Gillyvase beach is only about 10 minutes walk away.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying in this lovely Hotel again.
