We have been staying at The Falmouth Hotel occasionally for over 40 years. Having moved back to Cornwall 2 years ago, as locals we have attended many weddings and birthdays.
Also have had many great Sunday Lunches and meals.

Yes I agree with the comments that over the years, it has got faded and out of date.

Not withstanding, we so love the hotel, we have booked a small party to celebrate our wedding anniversary in November, with family and friends.

The staff have been amazing with helping us sort out our arrangements and booking rooms, especially Jane Williams, we are only booking for 12, we have been treated with such respect and kindness, for such a small booking.

A big thank you, we look forward to our stay

I hope that you have been able to see many of the improvements we have made to the the hotel in the past year, and I thank you for your continued support and loyalty.

Stayed here end of September. Excellent location. We had a sea view room on the fourth floor. It looked newly refurbished. A very good sized room, with comfortable sofa and bed. We were also contacted to tell us there were functions on during our stay. We were told we were on the fourth floor away from the noise. We did not hear a thing from any function either night. We really appreciated the phone call warning us, even though it did not affect us at all. We did not use the restaurant, except for breakfast, which was very good. We ate from the bar menu one evening. Service and food was very good. Overall a very pleasant stay and would use this hotel again. All staff friendly and helpful.

Dear Holidayaddict023,

Thank you for adding your thoughts and comments to Trip Advisor, and I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us.

We do quite often get very busy with local weddings and events at weekends, but we work hard to try and ensure that these have little impact on our guests who are on holiday for a relaxing break.

We have just recently updated our Bar and Restaurant menu, which are proving very popular. I hope that we will be able to entice you into our restaurant on your next stay.

Thank you again, and we look forward to welcoming you back,

Regards,

Christopher Roberts
General Manager

my wife & I stayed here recently as we were attending a charity ball at the hotel. we have stayed before and know some of the staff. it was as good as always, lovely room, wonderful service and a great breakfast. the hotel has a faded elegance but is being modernised and is very comfortable. highly recommended.

Room Tip: if you like an attic feel ask for room on floor 4.

Dear john h,

Thank you for adding your review to Trip Advisor, and I am glad to see that we have continued to meet and exceed your expectations of us since your last review.

It is lovely (as always) to know that we can stand out from the crowd, and entice local residents to stay with us as a treat on special occasions, rather than get a taxi home after our charity events.

We look forward to welcoming you back again to The Falmouth.

Kind regards,

Christopher Roberts
General Manager

I have stayed here for work and returned for short breaks many times
Everything about this Hotel is excellent, location, rooms,food,staff,leisure facilities
So nice to stay in an old fashioned hotel with excellent facilities
Yes some rooms are a little tired but they are updating & upgrading
Recommend this Hotel to anyone 100%

Room Tip: ask for sea view, or cottages and flats also offer excellent accomodation

This was the second time we had stayed here, on both occasions for a wedding, these visits were 4 years apart, and although we appreciate that the hotel is undergoing refurbishment, we felt that on both visits that for the rates charged, the rooms were somewhat tired, the flat pack style bedside units had chunks of trim missing, the curtains in the room needed either cleaning or replacing. Beverages supplied in the room were rather mean. On the plus side, the room supplied for the wedding breakfast was stunning, and the meal was very nice, although the only hot component of the meal got cold while we waited an age for vegetables. The staff were helpful and friendly, but we were surprised to be asked for full payment for our room on arrival, before viewing the room despite the hotel having taken our full credit card details on booking. In conclusion having stayed in numerous hotels of all standards throughout the world we feel that overall the Falmouth Hotel needs to "raise its game" if it wants to be considered superior to a budget motel.

Dear Ian248,

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us, and I am sorry that we fell short of your expectations.

We are undergoing refurbishment, and striving to improve our aesthetics throughout the hotel. It is a shame that the hotel was unloved for such a long period of time in the past and lacked the positive investment that is now forthcoming.

We are working hard to bring everything about the hotel up to a high level, and this year we have gone a long way to achieving that - from refurbished bedrooms and corridors to our leisure club. We will continue to invest and improve the hotel, and I am certain that on your next stay with us you will see a marked improvement - especially as there are only a finite number of our standard inland rooms left that need updating. In the next year we intend to bring these up to the same standard as our other rooms, and continue with refurbishing our bathrooms across the hotel.

I do apologise if there was an issue with the service of vegetables at your function, and I have enquired with my banqueting team as to any issues that they were made aware of, or any feedback, so that we can investigate the matter further.

We look forward to welcoming you back, and showing you what we have achieved.

Regards,

Christopher Roberts
General Manager
