Why We Love It

  • It's a 15-minute walk from the lively town centre
  • There's an award-winning restaurant and a lounge with a sea-view terrace
  • It's part of the Brend Hotels group, which won AA Hotel Group of the Year 2015


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. Many of Cornwall's most picturesque sights, including St Ives, home to the Tate art gallery, Truro with its grand cathedral, and the Lizard Point, the southern 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.

I loved the location of the hotel and the friendly staff.
Other Comments
The room was lovely, but very little power to the shower, maybe this was because we were on the second floor.
