Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 January 2014

Our fifth year at the Duchy which could not be more comfortable with the highest of standards. The location is beautiful, the staff are all helpful and pleasant, and the meals are the highlight because they are quite different to anything else we have during the year! The indoor pool is perfect and a real joy to use at this time of year. For a winter break, with more than a little luxury, it gives one a real lift!

There is not much else to add to all the great comments made from peoples who have stayed @ the Royal Duchy, from the James the Doorman's warm welcome to the ladies on reception (excellent on both check in & out) Housekeeping done to a very standard and well maintained during our 2 night stay, bar service superb, thanks, Matt, restaurant food & service perfect thanks Alan and all the team. this was a much needed break for my self & partner and the R.D certainly came up the expectations we were expecting.

Thanks to Mr Taylor the Manager (no relation) and his fantastic team for looking after us so well :)

The Royal Duchy is right on the sea front in Falmouth and is one of the best hotels in Falmouth. Nice if you have something special or looking for an upmarket stay and a little bit of luxury. Good service, good restaurant, attentive staff

A most enjoyable time in a most comfortable hotel. Plenty to do in the hotel ( the weather was not ideal for going out too much ! ) but there was a morning visit to the local Bowling Alley, where we had complimentary entrance, coffee and biscuits and prizes for best individual lady and gentleman plus a team award. Lots of fun in great company and well organised by the hotel. There was a complimentary Mystery Tour too which ended at Newquay Zoo where we enjoyed a short and slightly damp visit. Excellent food, super service from the friendly staff and the very high standards associated with Brend Hotels made this a memorable start to 2014.

Room Tip: The sea view is worthwhile.

Our pre-Christmas break with friends proved to be a real success and our first experience of the Royal Duchy has guaranteed it will not be our last. There was an atmosphere of friendliness combined with high levels of competence that made it such a relaxed break. Our welcome from the doorman and the reception desk made us feel at ease and the staff throughout the hotel were highly trained as well as extremely helpful. The hotel management team were always in evidence and their support for the staff ensured everything ran smoothly and showed real teamwork in action. They always stopped to chat with us and showed a real interest. The food was exceptional and served beautifully.
A return visit is a must.

After spending five Christmas breaks at this excellent hotel this year has been another success. Starting on arrival you are greeted like old friends from the car park to the restaurant and every where in between. The Management always have time for a chat to ensure that you have a perfect stay
See you there next christmas

Room Tip: The view out of the sea from rooms at the front are spectacular and well worth having

Have just returned from the Royal Duchy Hotel after the Christmas break. A really lovely hotel, the staff welcomed me back as if I was one of the family. The food throughout the festive season was really special and the staff were really great, can't fault any of it. This was not my first stay at the Duchy and it certainly won't be my last. Thank you all for a truly lovely Christmas.

Room Tip: Book early and pay a little extra for a sea view, well worth the money
