Clean white cotton napkins, thick carpets, high ceilings, quiet unassuming warm environment, and calm polite friendly staff - perfect setting to relax and enjoy beaufitul Falmouth. Thank goodness the kids weren't here !!!
The dining room is grand and classic, with a pianist tinkling away. The food, served with smart aplomb, was delicious.
I was searching for a cheap B&B, and reluctantly decided to go with a single room costing slightly more than my £45 budget - but it was cetainly the right decision.
There is nothing about the place that is unsuitable for kids / children, but for me this was an adult environment, where drifting into easy conversation with other residents would have been harder and more distracting with kids - maybe its just my kids !!!
I'm only 40 but this place is an old school hotel that have retained all the things we all treasure about staying in hotels - Travelodge and Premier inn have their place in the world - but the slight price differences do not compensate for those comforts lost from staying in a real hotel.
My single room was cosy with an ensuite. The Lady who complained that her hotel room was smaller than her room at home, with a mere 4ft 6in double bed may have a point in relation to modern expecations for bed and room size. At the time when this gorgeous hotel was built the population weren't as spoilt as today, with super king this, and acres of that. And the things that have been moved aside to make way for the bigger beds and larger rooms are the things (as said above) that make this place such a treasure.
oooh and also there is a free golf course fo residents and a pool.
