I had longed to visit Cornwall after reading Rebecca at school and convinced my mother that we leave a week before the group tour we were taking began in France and spend it in Cornwall.
After poring over the map and various places I wanted to visit I thought Falmouth would be the most central waterfront location. And it was - never more than 90 minutes from anywhere in the county.
I booked the Royal Duchy in November getting a great rate from Laterooms and our twin-bedded room looked right over the sea as I hoped it would. The hotel was built in 1896 as a grand Victorian seaside hotel and its dining room still has the same grandeur - lots of gold and red with Mum noting they've spent heavily and recently on the curtains. There are a couple of drawing rooms and a smart bar upholstered in red and cream.
Dinner features a little too much of the classic heavy, five-star fare (roasts etc) but the breakfasts are wonderful, ranging from fresh fruits, yoghurts, pastries, salamis, cheeses and cereals to hot cooked dishes.
