The Falmouth Townhouse
Ranked #21 of 24 Hotels in Falmouth
Reviewed 21 October 2012

We stayed at the Townhouse hotel in Falmouth last weekend. The hotel was great, the staff very friendly and very nice. Our room was spacious, with a huge lovely bed and the bathroom was just FAB! Breakfast in the morning was excellent, lots of choices, very well cooked and as usual the staff were very polite and attentive......ONE DOWNSIDE.....as this was the yearly Falmouth Oyster festival there was a lot of people there.....a lot of loud and drunk people [although all friendly and some very funny too!]....and therefore a lot of noise...would i stay there again - YES; would i recommend this hotel to friends - YES...so if you are planning a weekend or a break in Falmouth consider staying in the Townhouse hotel providing that you don't mind a bit of noise :o)

Very convenient for the town and harbour, a laid back hotel with friendly service, the rooms with contemporary style, we had room seven with a great view over the harbour, the room was comfortable, a large bed and a bathroom with bath and shower and plenty of hot water. Excellent breakfast.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights as part of a wedding party in Falmouth and really enjoyed it.

We stayed in one of the superior rooms with views of the harbour (room 4). It was spacious and vintage retro (rather than boutique-y) in decoration with lovely high ceilings which we liked. The bed was large and one of the comfiest we've stayed in. There wasn't too much noise from the road at night although being so well-located to town there's a lot of footfall outside. We made the most of a lovely big bath (tip: give it plenty of time to run!) and the toiletries. The shower was powerful and there was hot water aplenty.

Breakfast was really good, both days and remarked on by the 4 of us who ate together in the morning. They were very accommodating with choices and drinks and papers to read. Service was consistently friendly and helpful - from checking in, to ordering cabs, to maps, to making a good G&T.

All in all it was a great stay and £130 a night seemed reasonable for the quality of staff, food, location and room. As a weekend hotel it was perfect although if we were looking to stay longer in Cornwall we'd have gone for a cheaper alternative or hired a cottage.

We stayed in this hotel prior to some camping/diving days down near the Lizard. Last day of hot showers and comfy beds...at least we had 1 out of 2! We paid £80 per night which was less than the advertised rate, and stayed in Room 8 which was apparently the 'box room'. So, review is:
Good parts:
- the hotel ideally situated for a night out in Falmouth
- Room 8 was actually a decent size considering it was described as the box room by someone I spoke to and you could look over the harbour
- breakfast was excellent and served by someone who was very welcoming (I think this may have been the owner/manager)
- has free wi-fi
- shower was hot and had some power in it!

And the bad parts:
- hotel is tired looking – couple of examples were the doors to rooms had paint chipping from them and there were letters missing from some, and in our room the side tables had bubbled/chipped paint, the shower tray was falling apart, and the toilet roll holder was missing so just leaving a space on the wall
- some of the decor feels oppressive, particularly the blue going up through the stairs (little natural light), so the hotel doesn’t feel light and airy
- there are only 3 parking spaces in their car park and they have at least 10 rooms (I think) so expect to pay the car park charges over the road!
- the staff when we arrived didn’t inspire us with confidence that the hotel was run well and the reception again looked tired (paint scrapped off the wall at the back) and unprofessional (its a small thing but there was just a computer and a pad which had doodles all over it!)
- there is no air conditioning in the rooms – we asked for a fan before we went out for the evening sensing it might be warm on the top floor even though the air temp that day was only in its late teens. The same member of staff who didn’t inspire us earlier couldn’t say whether they had one but we told her we’d seen one of the floor below. Needless to say no fan appeared in our room, and I had a terrible night’s sleep! The duvet would have been great in the winter but just too heavy for the summer months, and there wasn’t a sheet which I could have slept under. In the end, at some early hour of the morning, I trundled downstairs to retrieve the fan which was thankfully still there! (this was probably our biggest issue)

Overall I thought the hotel was expensive for what it was and an average stay. It just needs some improvements in areas and then it could be the hotel it wants you to think it is…

We stayed in this hotel for one night and it was fine (apart from the fire alarm setting off due to a defect). The room was well decorated and had everything we needed to make our stay pleasant. I agree that it wasn't quite the boutique hotel we expected having seen the website but.. The beds were extremely comfortable, the range of bath toiletries on offer very nice. Our room was on the first floor so you got a bit of noise from the pub and billards players downstairs so go for the higher rooms if possible. Car parking facilities right opposite and not too expensive. Very friendly service and lovely breakfast. Would stay there again actually. Not a bad price either.

The website for this hotel is fantastic. It lured me in to thinking that this place would be a trendy boutique hotel that we were looking for. We were really disappointed by this hotel. I imagine when it first opened, it was really nice but its looking seriously tired. The location is good, parking was not easy but ok. The service was really slow from the moment we arrived. I felt like we were inconveniencing the receptionist who would rather had been chatting to his pals in the bar. The room reminded me of a drab university room. It overlooked the back garden which was quite noisy. Apart from a few nice bits of furniture and bedding, the room just looked tired. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was lovely and there were lovely toiletries. Breakfast was pretty dreadful. We waited ages for service. It felt like a place where they had been popular and had frankly become complacent. The breakfast was nice but took ages. There were lots of families when we went and we wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a romantic break. Certainly wouldn't stay again. This place is past its best and they have got lazy.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Falmouth Townhouse and will never forget the superb breakfast prepared by Marc. Our room and bathroom were spacious, good beds and powerful shower. Very friendly staff.

Room Tip: We would recommend room no. 7 on the second floor with view onto the harbour
