“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Lovely location, very friendly and courteous staff, room clean, very well presented. Very nice food. Well worth staying for a weekend if you want to get spoiled. Easy distance to the castle, town and next to the beach, great for any watersport.

We have just enjoyed a 2 night stay at the Royal Duchy. The location is excellent. Our room was a little small, but beautifully clean, and our bathroom was a good size. The staff were without exception super courteous and friendly, and very efficient. The breakfast and lunch we had were very good. We stay in hotels frequently and judged this one of the best. Two small negatives: uncomfortable pillows and a pretty weak shower....but for us not big gripes. We will return!

We have just returned from a weekend break at the Royal Duchy Hotel. Having stayed at their sister hotel - Saunton Sands on several occasions we were very struck by how much more welcoming and subsequently attentive the staff at the Royal Duchy were . They made such an effort and couldn't have been nicer, both in Reception and the Restaurant, helpful and unobtrusive on each and every occasion.

Would also like to mention that the place was spotlessly clean and very good value. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Superior sea facing - as described

Fantastic welcome, polite, very friendly staff. Room was £195 (out of season) incl. breakfast so expected it to be a bit special. Furniture was ok but dated, decoration was fresh, bed linen crisp and good quality, pillows poor and hard, room too hot even with window open. Bathroom was terrible, tiny, cramped and not great quality.

Food was excellent in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast but limited choice for dinner and far too many expensive supplements if you didn't want set meal, same with breakfast - should be no need for expensive supplements at breakfast when breakfast included in expensive room rate.

Room Tip: See if they have any rooms with a decent size bathroom. Definitely go for sea view, others look over...

The Hotel is situated in a perfect location. Wonderful sea views. Perfectly situated within walking distance of the town. The staff at the Royal Duchy really are a rarity, from pleasant helpful receptionists, fantastic porters to greet you in and out the hotel, nothing was too much and the assistance was exceptional. Breakfast was excellent with unlimited choices and fantastic waiting staff all pleasant and helpful. The lady in the front of the hotel serving cream teas was a real treat relaxing and a perfect flow of sunshine just wonderful. The bedrooms we had were single inland well what can I say mine was perfect a wonderful room clean well lit roomy and immaculate the service team were excellent. I recommend this hotel highly from myself and my teenage daughter it is the best hotel in Falmouth we can't wait to return. A quick say on the spa it is so beautiful the ceramic beds are a must they really helped my back after a long journey the towels are included and just perfect a real gem.

Room Tip: I booked 2 x single inland rooms they were very nice rooms. My room was at the top of the hotel fur...

Some of the best views and service in Falmouth. The champagne afternoon tea is amazing (especially on the terrace when the sun is shining) and all staff are attentive, knowledgeable and most importantly, smiley! Recent refurbishments mean that The Duchy is one of the smartest hotels in town and somewhere where myself and my family will be returning time and time again.

Stayed at this hotel earlier this week and just had to say what a great experience it was.I was down there on business and booked at quite late notice. Next time I will book ahead and try to get a room at the front which must have amazing views. The hotel has a great atmoshere which oozes quality even if the clientele is a little on the older side of life(as am I).
Rooms are not large but are kept impecably clean and the breakfast is the best I have tasted in years ( try the poached egg and smoked salmon). I look forward to staying here again asap.

Room Tip: Book early to get a sea view room
