I stayed at the Falcon on business for about three weeks on and off in October/November. The staff were great , so was the food and the rooms had touches worthy of a five star hotel. The bar is a classic English saloon bar but there is a large lounge area /restaurant great for people watching if that is more...

We booked directly with the hotel on a db&b basis. From the moment I emailed the hotel I received prompt and very helpful replies. I do fuss about rooms! After completing our reservation I then realised it was a 3*, which usually I would never give a second glance. However, the Falcon has changed my mind. The staff were so...

Happily stayed here for over 6 months many years ago and have never had the opportunity to return until today. The place still matches my recollection of being a fabulous provincial hotel in a lovely market town - both with loads of character. Sure some things have changed and sensitive upgrades made but it has retained the welcoming feel with...

Outstanding hotel. Many old coaching inns still look and feel old. This has managed to retain it's charm but with a modern twist. Rooms and lounge are very comfortable and have a lovely ambiance. A lot of this is to do with the staff who are excellent. Bathroom was excellent with good toiletries and plenty of tea and coffee in...

We arrived mid afternoon for a friend's birthday celebration party, with our 8 year old son. The parking is behind the hotel, which means that you bring your luggage through the rear garden & then through the lounge area, which was the only aspect of this hotel that we didn't like. This area was reasonably busy, people eating etc, so...

Thank you for your review following your recent visit to The Falcon Hotel. Due to the nature of the hotel this does mean those guests who use our hotel car park do need to walk through the lounge area to reach reception which located at the end of the main lounge.

We met friends here for lunch on their recommendation. In many ways it is a traditional country town hotel, retaining many of the quaint idiosyncrasies you would expect but has clearly been updated and modernized such as to retain its character. It all makes for very pleasant surroundings. The dining area is not large and adjoins a busy lounge area...

As a frequent business traveler (3/4 nights per week) I'm always on the look out for gems to return to - this is certainly one of them. Location very easy to find, ample parking at rear.
