This is a great, old Beach Hotel...very, very nice. We arrived at the Falmouth Hotel as members of a tour group...staying there for three nights.
Knowing that members of a tour group are normally not assigned the best rooms, I contacted the hotel directly and asked if we could be upgraded. No problem...and it was not all that expensive.
This turned out to be my best investment of the entire trip. Our upgrade was one of the best rooms at the hotel....with a huge balcony and an amazing view.
The breakfast (English) was wonderful. We normally had lunch in town, but we rarely missed a beer in the comfortable bar before dinner. Dinners were as always, when you're with a tour group, preselected, but....we had no complaints.
In summary...the decision to upgrade the room was what made our stay at the Falmouth Hotel really special.
For Brits looking for a similar experience in the U.S., look up the Hotel Del Coronado on Coronado Island, near San Diego, California. Enjoy...!!
