“They even arranged the weather!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

From the time the time our arrival to our departure all the staff made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. We stayed for a family wedding and the organisation was flawless. Given that it was October we could have reasonably expected changeable weather, but it was excellent all weekend and we were assured that that Hotel management had arranged it just for us! The food was excellent and, although on a busy road, the Hotel was quiet. The Hotel is situated away from the centre of Falmouth which is a not too distant downhill walk away. We were delighted to find that it is well served by the Falmouth shuttle bus, free for bus pass holders, which stops a short level walk from the Hotel . We would not hesitate to recommend this Hotel.

After my Son and Daughter-In-Law had their Wedding Reception here in July, it was such a great Hotel that we decided to return to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversay.
We had Room 12 again on the top floor, with a balcony and an amazing view of the Falmouth coastline. The room is very comfortable and nicely decorated, with everything needed during your stay.
We booked a meal in the Hotel's restaurant and when we went down we were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by Neil the General Manager, this chap never seems to have time off! We sat by the lovely log fire with drinks, then were called when our meal was ready. The staff made our meal and stay very special and we were thoroughly spoilt. The food really was excellent.
There was a Wedding Reception on next door during the evening with an amazing band which we both thoroughly enjoyed listening to.
The staff are friendly and professional and the facilities excellent.
Thanks again Greenlawns, we hope to visit again.

Fantastic wedding venue - made to feel really welcome.
The hotel interior is really smart and cosy.
The food and atmosphere were perfect.
The MD was excellent, keeping an eye on the proceedings.
Looking forward to returning one day!

This hotel is fabulous. We got married on Friday 19th October 2012 and held our wedding reception here, and continued our stay for the rest of the weekend together with our guests.

From all the different wedding venues we looked at in the Falmouth area, we chose this hotel predominantly from our first meeting with Neil Slade, the General Manager; he and all of his staff made us feel so welcome and when we spoke about our wedding plans and ideas, he immediately put us at ease and reassured us that everything could be taken care of. His experience and competence with hosting weddings was a definite attraction for us, as well as the location of the hotel and the easy access to the town and beach.

From the moment we booked the venue, and in the year running up to our big day, Neil and his team were always very approachable and answered our random and obscure queries promptly and enthusiastically! We were able to come up with very much our own plans, while using Neil’s vast experience and advice regarding what would work best at the hotel.

On the day of the wedding reception, all of our plans seemed to run very smoothly; even if they didn’t, we weren’t aware of it! All of our guests commented on how friendly and helpful the staff were, from the moment they phoned to book a room and for the entire duration of their stay. They were particularly complimentary about the excellent food served throughout, in particular the wedding reception itself; the evening buffet with Cornish pasties was also a big hit!

As we were staying here for the whole weekend, we joined our guests in taking advantage of the wonderful pool facilities and the beautiful gardens, as well as the homey lounge area with log fire; a fantastic way to relax following the excitement of our big day!

We loved our experience here at The Green Lawns Hotel. The exceptional service we received, together with the very reasonable price we were charged, means we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone looking for a wedding venue in the Falmouth area. We would equally highly recommend the hotel for someone looking for a pleasant stay in this part of Cornwall - we will definitely be staying here again!

Our daughter's wedding reception was held in one of Green Lawns' banquet rooms. The entire staff did a fantastic job and were very attentive,especially Neil Slade. The food was exceptional and the grounds were beautiful.
Most of the wedding party booked rooms that same night and all were very comfortable and happy.
I would recommend Green Lawns to anyone looking for a hotel room or for party venue!

My husband and I stayed for three nights while attending my husband's son's wedding which was held at the hotel. Beautiful hotel, friendly staff who could not do enough for you, pleasant room with a balcony, great food, one of the best hotels we've stayed in for a long time! We wished the stay was longer - sorry to leave.
