I stayed at The Royal Duchy for one night in October, after attending a wedding in Falmouth. The hotel is lovely, in a really beautiful location, just opposite the sea. I stayed in a single inland room, which was actually a little bigger than I thought it would be, and was nicely decorated in lovely colours. It had a single...

Great location, very clean, excellent breakfast. I found the swimming pool a bit small but the overall stay was great. I wish we had more time to explore the front garden of the hotel as it had stunning views. Will be recommending this place to our friends.

I had stayed at this hotel before but quite some time ago, so when I needed to stay in Cornwall again, I wanted to give the modern boutique kind of hotel a miss and fancied a pampering so plumped to stay here, remembering that although their rooms were not the most modern, the food and wine was always good. When...

The Spa at The Royal Duchy is really the place to go for stepping away from the hustle and bustle of real life and in to a calm, tranquil and relaxing escape zone. The gorgeous pool and relaxing sauna provide a wonderful environment and peaceful sanctuary. The amazing treatments on offer are very good value for money and beautifully delivered...

Just had a fabulous relaxing overnight stay at this lovely hotel. All the staff were friendly, helpful and informative. The room was excellent (216) sea-view, large bathroom with 2 showers and a bath. We ordered an afternoon tea ( enough to share)served in the conservatory. Made full use of the facilities, the pool and sauna, clean and provided lovely gowns...

For the past few years we have been trying a different Brend Hotel. The Royal Duchy was an excellent choice for us to explore the Lizard Peninsular and surrounding areas. We enjoyed a delicious Cornish cream tea and took advantage of the spa facilities. We would thoroughly recommend this lovely hotel to others.

We stayed 2 nights here in October. Warm welcome from the lovely doorman who was friendly but not overly so- he showed us around the pool and changing area etc so we knew where everything was. We had booked DBB- dinner was very pleasant overall- a couple of issues with slight under seasoning and desert was nice but not amazing....

Stayed here on a dinner-bed-breakfast deal for 3 nights. This hotel is fully deserving of its 4 star rating. Beautifully kept hotel, very friendly and attentive staff. Would thoroughly recommend if looking for comfort and quality.
