Overall our experience at the Falmouth Hotel was excellent. We had a standard room on the first floor that was not sea facing but had a lovely balcony on the side of the building from which the coast line could be admired. Since we had not expected this it was a very welcome surprise, especially so as there was a roof over the balcony, which made it possible to sit outside even in the rather drizzly weather of the bank holiday weekend.
The room itself was very nice and clean. It was not one of the refurbished ones, but everything was in good condition and we felt very comfortable in it. The bathroom as a very good size and also very clean except for a pipe on the radiator which seemed to have an oily substance on it, which I presume may have leaked from the radiator itself. However, as this was very close to the bottom of the radiator and did not cause us any discomfort we did not bother to mention it to reception.
The rest of the hotel also seemed very clean and overall very nicely decorated. The dining room however could do with a bit of updating as it seems a little bar, especially compared to the rest of the hotel.
Quite a few people on this site seem to have complained about the breakfast served in the hotel or rather the service. We had no such problems and were always served promptly and never had to wait for more than a few minutes. The food is varied and tasted excellent. Dinner was an equally pleasing experience and I would happily recommend the hotel restaurant to other guests.
The location of the hotel is priceless and the beach is literally just a stone's throw away. The proximity of the train station was also a big plus for us. I definitely recommend this hotel.
