Reviewed 19 July 2014

We were greeted by the owner, shown to our room (no 13) and offered a complementary drink which we took to the lovely garden. a very friendly and professional welcome. The room was spotless, the bed linnen and towels were of a very high standard. Room 13 is a tiny twin room looking out onto the car park, through the side Window you can see the sea. The room being small didn't bother us at all as we literally only used the hotel to sleep at (which I would say is actually more of a very up market B&B) but if you were there for longer than a few nights you may not want this room (the beds seemed quite narrow but were very comfortable). The bathroom was spotless with a great power shower. The breakfast was very good too. We really were impressed with the decor and cleanliness of our room here and the rooms we walked through. The family who run the hotel are really funny and friendly - great base to explore Cornwall. 2 min walk from the beach.

Hats off, this really really is one of the friendliest hotels we've ever stayed at. Owned and managed by the Housman family since March 2012 (so you may wish to ignore any critical reviews recorded before then), the hotel is characterised by the staff's outstandingly friendly approach to its guests. On our early arrival we received a genuinely warm welcome, and were invited to relax in the sunny garden with complimentary coffee and biscuits whilst our room was prepared. Our request for a sea facing room was met - we had a spacious, recently refurbished room with modern en suite. A really nice touch was the bottle of chilled wine and note from the owners, recognising my wife's birthday. The hotel's lounge has a well stocked honesty bar, at reasonable prices. The breakfasts, served with a smile, were freshly prepared, hot and very tasty - if you're looking for the ubiquitous tepid self service buffet bars featuring feasts of somewhat fatigued bangers & bacon, you've come to the wrong place. Whilst the car park is quite small, there is ample on street parking right outside - and it certainly seems to be in a quiet, safe part of town. The sea front is about a minute's walk away, and it's an easy 10 minute stroll to the marina and the numerous bars and restaurants nearby. In summary, the Lerryn ticks a lot of boxes in terms of location, comfort and catering - but for us, it's most memorable feature was the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff we encountered. We'd certainly stay there again, and would recommend it without reservation.

We stayed for 5 nights for a much needed break. The owners are very welcoming, the rooms well finished and very clean. Good selection for breakfast, nice garden if you want a quiet read of your book in the sunshine. We will definitely be back, well done to all of you.

This family-owned hotel is charming, very clean, and very friendly. It is a ten minute walk to town and a ten minute walk to a very nice beach. The staff is very helpful. We were served tea out on the outdoor patio. The breakfast was also delicious with a great selection to choose from. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I stayed in a twin room with a water view. It had a very nice private balcony that we enjoyed.

We stayed here for a week with our 1 year old son & not only was the hotel fantastic but the staff we're amazing and so accommodating, they had a travel cot already set up so we didn't have to bring one, they allowed me indoor storage for my sons buggy & they heated his baby food for me, nothing was too much trouble & anyone who has little ones will know how difficult things can be but everyone at the Lerryn took the stress away. We now live in Falmouth but for anyone of our friends or family coming down here who find no room at our house, we'll be telling them to book in at the Lerryn!

We stayed at this hotel on our trip around Cornwell and found it very central to the town and it's attractions. It was very clean with friendly staff and a great breakfast. Being family owned they seemed to go the extra yard to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.
I would definitely stay there again if I return to Falmouth

My husband and I stayed for one night here due to a wedding we were attending. We had contacted the Hotel prior to the stay regarding the checking in time being after 2pm however the wedding we were attending started at 2. The Hotel staff contacted me and said they would do their best to service the room by 12:30 allowing us time to get ready.
On arrival to The Lerryn hotel at 12ish, the friendly staff informed us that the rooms were almost ready and presented us with complimentary tea and coffee in the lounge while we wait. It is here we met Bear, a small, gorgeous dog who loved being fussed over. After our tea we asked if the room was ready and we were taken to the room. We paid £90 odd for a double room with a balcony and sea view.
We were given the middle balcony room, the room was compact but clean and tidy. The balcony was quite small, not really enough room to walk around the table and chairs there but it is nice to have a brew outside. The sea view although you can see it, sadly is a little let down with a big tree and other buildings in the way but this can't be helped.
The hotel had an honesty bar which is a lovely idea however due to attending the wedding, we did not use this service. The hotel itself is quaint and charming, clean and tidy so all round top marks. It is fairly central in terms of near the train station and the coastal path which ran either side to 2 beaches.
The dining room is light and airy with plenty of places to sit. The 'Full Cornish' breakfast was delicious with 2 kinds of sausages!!
Overall I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: For a larger balcony, pick room 7
