The Royal Duchy Hotel
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- This turn-of-the-century hotel holds four AA Silver Stars and overlooks Falmouth's scenic coastline

- There's an award-winning restaurant and a lounge with a sea-view terrace
- Walkers can head straight onto the South West coast path
The "very friendly" (The AA) Royal Duchy Hotel has panoramic views of Falmouth Bay and 16th-century Pendennis Castle. Built in 1893 on a tranquil stretch of seafront, the property is a 15-minute walk from the town centre, which is known for its bustling harbour, National Maritime Museum and waterside pubs.
Condé Nast Johansens loves the "friendly staff and very personal service as well as the excellent location for discovering scenic Falmouth". Many of Cornwall's most picturesque sights, including St Ives, home to the Tate art gallery, Truro with its grand cathedral, and Lizard Point, the southernmost tip of the UK mainland, are within an hour's drive of the hotel.
Inside, the hotel has a refined feel. There's an elegant, 2-AA-Rosette restaurant serving British cuisine with Mediterranean and Asian influences, a cosy lounge bar with a sea-view terrace offering light meals and cream teas, and a smart, granite-topped cocktail bar.
The hotel's palm-fringed lawn is dotted with sunloungers, and there is also an indoor pool, a spa area with a sauna, and a snooker room. Kids can head for the playroom and the outdoor games area.
Rooms are decorated with soft neutral tones and plush fabrics, and have free Wi-Fi. Some rooms have sea views and a sitting area.
