We stayed at the RD hotel over four nights to visit friends. It was a very enjoyable break in an excellent hotel in a wonderful location so close to all the facilities in Falmouth. Our room was very comfortable and well equipped even though we did not pay for a sea view. The food was very good as were the...

We stayed here for a few days and we had a great time (helped of course by the weather). Although slightly old fashioned and dated the hotel offers good service, a daily changing menu and is in a great location. We were slightly disapointed in that we stayed in the Armada suite and we were expecting a fully sea facing...

We stayed for three nights at this hotel which overlooks the bay between Pendennis Castle and Gyllyngvase Beach: a tranquil and beautiful location on the southern side of the Falmouth peninsula. We were fortunate in experiencing some beautiful weather which enabled us to enjoy to the full the sun terrace and garden at the front of the hotel. The town...

The room was on the side of the hotel but we could just see the sea, it was exceptionally clean and tidy, there was no problem about changing from a duvet to blankets, the room was also very quiet. We cannot find any fault with the staff, there was nothing that was too much trouble. The food was excellent, best...

I stayed with my Mum at the Royal Duchy for four nights and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff were very attentive and cheerful, a real asset to the hotel. Our room with sea view, although on the small side was beautifully furnished and decorated, beds comfy with lovely bed linen. Breakfasts were fab, with part buffet and part table...

We stayed here for two nights and had a lovely weekend. The staff were all very helpful especially one particular waiter in the resturant (didn't get his name) who was very friendly. The rooms were of good size and had all the neccesities needed for our stay. The room did get very warm during the night, however we made good...

The hotel was very clean, the bedroom was a good size, very moden and was serviced daily to a very high standard.The receptionists were not very warm and welcoming.The whole hotel has a rather dated feel and is perhaps suited to the older person.While breakfast was good, it was slightly annoying to have the same table allocated each day.The bar...

Possibly the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in. A trio of management patrol the hotel to keep the standards high, good decor and unbattered furniture. Dinner was a bit disappointing, far too elaborate and not much of it, a return to normal would benifit. Our room was well appointed, just make sure you get a view of Falmouth Bay....
