Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Panoramic views of the Cornish coastline and 16th-century Pendennis Castle spread out from the "very friendly" (The AA) Royal Duchy Hotel. This classic lodging dating from 1893 is set on a tranquil stretch of Falmouth's seafront, just a 15-minute walk from the town centre, known for its bustling harbour, National Maritime Museum and waterside pubs. Many of Cornwall's most picturesque sights, including St Ives, home to the Tate art gallery, Truro with its grand cathedral, and the Lizard peninsula, the UK mainland's most southerly point, are within an hour's drive of the hotel.

There's a refined feel to The Royal Duchy Hotel’s interiors, which include 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 leisure amenities include an indoor pool, a spa area with a sauna, and a snooker room. Kids can head for the playroom and the outdoor games area.

Soft neutral tones and plush fabrics characterise the hotel's 45 guestrooms, all of which include free Wi-Fi. Some rooms have sea views and a sitting space, while upgraded options feature heated floors and views of the castle.

The food in the restaurant was the low point of our stay. We also found the person running the restaurant for breakfast very unhelpful.

We had a very dated room, it seemed to me like we were put in one of the unrefurbished rooms, the website claimed they had a champagne bar but they actually didn't.
