Well, I read all the reviews before we stayed last night 5 Jan with trepidation, but it was fantastic. Paul the Manager who was at reception on our arrival, checked us in early, we had a lovely room right up in the eaves with fantastic views. Now Paul made our stay extra special, nothing was too much trouble for him, everything I asked him, he just made everything seem effortless. The position is amazing, breakfast was spot on, I saw him at 7.30 coming in to cook it all fresh, he is a great "all rounder", and the management must be pleased to have him as their ambassador. The rooms and beds are really comfortable. They have a sun lounge which overlooks the beach, there is ample car parking. You can dine at the St Michael Hotel if you wish, which looked lovely. There is nothing not to enjoy, I don't know what the previous reviews are complaining about.

We will be back, special thanks to Paul for all his help and attention, much appreciated.

I;ve just spent 3 days on a Power boating Course in Falmouth and decided to try the Falmouth Beach Hotel which burnt down a couple of years ago. I couldn't believe it when I was told the price would be £25 for bed and breakfast, I thought maybe they had refurbished the hotel in not a very good manner, how wrong could I be? It's a fantastic hotel with excellent breakfasts and the most friendly staff. I found I could use the sister Hotel's facilities of the spa for a small fee and the bar and restaurant. All in all I had a great 3 days boating and 4 nights in an excellent hotel. As Arnie said once....I WILL BE BACK !!

Room Tip: I had room 102 which has a double bed bathroom with bath and shower over.

I was disappointed not to be able to stay in the neighbouring St Micheal Hotel & Spa as it was fully booled, but as the Falmouth Beach is owned/run by the same people, I decided to stay there instead. The website showed promise. Its nice and friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable. We were in room 305 - top floor in the eaves, the lovely view made up for the tired decor and the sloping ceiling. Not sure if the top floor was fully occupied - but it seemed to better insulated against sound that the rooms we've had at St Michaels, but otherwise not as good. The in room amenities are adequate but not as St Michaels (no herbal teas, hot chocolate or any biccies), the bathroom was a bit squashed. For breakfast we had bacon sandwiches, fruit yog, juice and coffee - all available via a buffet - not much in the way of fresh fruit (a couple of apples and some over ripe bananas) or anything cooked to order. There were other options - including cereals & instant porridge (really? its easy enough to cook from scratch and doesn't take much longer to cook, but is so much nice).

Would I stay there again? probably - worth it for the view. But although this is owned by the St Michael Hotel, it is a lower cost option.

Room Tip: sea view on the 3rd floor (but there are no lifts)

Not sure that what is left of a larger hotel, post fire, is a hotel or just a poor person's annexe to the nearby, much smarter St Michaels Hotel. A largely deserted set of rooms, with the poor breakfast bussed over from the main building. No life, cold public areas and no atmosphere at all. Not sure why the owners don't decide whether this is a separate hotel in its own right and treat it as such, or just use it as an annexe, with all facilities, including reception and restaurant facilities provided at the sister hotel. It falls some way between the two - took us 10 minutes to find the proper entrance, and then had to ring for someone to come over from the sister hotel to book us in. Felt like second class guests in a deserted building.

Room Tip: Stay at the sister hotel!!!

We stayed for 2 nights in room 105, a twin with a sea view if you look hard enough, it's not advertised as a sea view so we were pleasantly surprised that we could see it at all. The rooms are decent and clean and the beds comfortable, the bathrooms a little tired. Whilst breakfast leaves something to be desired, it was adequate, freshly cooked and plentiful. We booked through a discount website and paid less than £60 a night which we thought was a bargain. The real jewel in the crown was the lovely staff in both the Falmouth Beach and the sister hotel next door. It's a £3 taxi ride into Falmouth town centre which is well worth the visit. The sun lounge is a lovely place to relax in after breakfast

Room Tip: A high floor at the back of the hotel should have stunning views of the sea

We recently had 2 nights at this hotel and it was reasonable. Although we booked via Booking.com, we were quite looking forward to it having seen the website. We were also aware that last year this hotel was partly destroyed by a fire, but felt by the look of their new website that some serious refurbishment had taken place.
The hotel was apparently bought by the hotel next door, St Michael’s, following the fire. A separate building survived while the main building was bulldozed and is now surrounded by boarding so first impressions are average, plus you could almost drive past through lack of signs. It is a shame that what is left hasn’t been refurbished yet to bring it in line with the website feel and St Michael’s. When you go into St Michael's you really feel like the poor relation staying at Falmouth Beach - unfortunately the price doesn't reflect this!
Our room, 108, was nothing like what is shown on any of the bedroom photos I have seen. While it was clean and tidy enough it just felt like an ‘old’ hotel with a dated green, red and gold colour scheme (St Michael's is lovely, very in keeping with its coastal location). Generally the room was fine, but we did have an issue with the bed – my back is still suffering! The mattress was very old/well used and soft plus we could still see the rather grubby bedstead which, if nothing else, could have done with a valance. The duvet looked very lumpy when we first arrived, but actually was a feather duvet and quite comfortable. The bed also seemed short – I’m an average 5ft 6” but I slept most of the night with my feet hanging over the end while my head was still on the pillow! The shower in the bathroom was excellent – a real power shower! It says there is free Wifi but you had to phone down to reception for the code and there was continually no answer – I can only assume it was the reception in our part of the hotel which only seemed to be manned on the evening we arrived.
You have full use of the facilities at St Michael’s and this was the redeeming factor – and if we was more prepared we would have made more use of this as the pool looked lovely. Breakfast is also served here – this was lovely, plenty of choice and well cooked. It is in the restaurant which has a beautiful view across the bay.
My advice, while it probably will be better in the future, pay that little bit extra and stay in St Michael's!

Aside from that the actual hotel, I am miffed at the price we paid – via Booking.com we paid £78 per room per night for a standard double. Having since looked at their website this is their standard rate. We only booked it the day before we arrived so were expecting a late deal rather than their advertised price! And if you look at Late Rooms, who we also looked at prior to booking, they are advertising double rooms available for next weekend at £78 per night with the usual price £138 per night!! BEWARE of these sites, do your research first!

Room Tip: Pay that little bit extra and stay in St Michael's!

My husband and I have just returned from a weekend at this hotel as it's in a great location and had previously stayed here before a fire destroyed most of it.
It now comprises of a building of about 30 bedrooms, a small conservatory sitting area, a breakfast room ( breakfast was excellent) and a small ironing room. Our bedroom was very comfortable and well furnished with freeview flat screen tv and tea/coffee facilities(shame no biscuits though!).
The hotel is now owned by the next door St Michael's Hotel so guests at the Falmouth Beach Hotel are able to use the lounge, bar, restaurant and leisure facilities (we had free use with our booking) and access is just across the car park. We were just on a bed and breakfast deal but booked a table for dinner on our last night in the St Michael's restaurant and had an excellent meal so would consider a half board booking in future as it was the best meal we had during our weekend break.
Would we return - most certainly.
