Last Saturday it was 50 years to the day my folks had their wedding reception here and we returned to celebrate, well we tried. Just returned home after a long Easter weekend in bude & my folks wanted to celebrate the golden wedding anniversary here with us. I bought some bunting & asked the receptionist if they would put it...

As owners we were away for Easter weekend, and that Saturday night service was a "perfect storm" of errors for which we are truly sorry. We have apologized to the couple whose 50th wedding anniversary it was and they have kindly accepted our offer of compensation. As a family-owned and run hotel, we are investing heavily in equipment and training....

We visited for a family tea . Nice choice on the menu as well as the specials. Clean tidy and well presented. I had the Moroccan lamb shank and couscous. Bit lacking in flavour but enjoyed the roasted veg and the lamb. We opted in having desserts. Fairly good choice. My boys had chocolate truffle torte. The portion size was...

We spent three nights at The Falcon in a lovely large room (5) overlooking the canal. This was our first visit to bude and will not be the last - if only we had brought the dogs!! We had dinner in the Lord Tennyson Restaurant which was a little disappointing, but the staff were delightful. Breakfasts were delicious. We were...

Stopped here just for a meal. I had the catch of the day which was Dover Sole and it was cooked perfectly. The starters were good too.Nice atmosphere in an historic old hotel right next to the canal, close to the town centre, an easy 5 minute walk.

This is a traditional family owned hotel of the highest quality. We surprised my parents for their diamond wedding anniversary by pretending we couldn't make it to celebrate with them during their stay. The hotel staff were in on the fib and made the whole surprise that much more special. Had a wonderful evening and stay. Thank you guys! Rooms...

We've known the Falcon for years as we're from Bude and it is THE hotel in Bude and we got married there 19 years ago but they really pulled out the stops this time. At short notice they served us afternoon tea for 45 of us for my mother-in-law's wake (sorry!) - but really; they did us and Pat proud....

Had a meal here on Saturday night. Menu selections disappointing. The cheese soufflé starter still had grease proof paper on the bottom. The steak was ordered as medium rare but was well done. The waiting staff were great but there were very long waits between courses. The kitchen was obviously overwhelmed because of an event in the function suite and...

What a beautiful hotel. Our first stay and this won't be our last. We celebrated my parents 60th wedding anniversary and surprised them on the day. The staff were all in on this surprise, and it would not have been possible without their help and support. Our thanks go to all the staff who were involved. Our experience from booking...

January in Bude can be a bit desolate - so it was great to find The Falcon Hotel for a pleasant evening meal in the bar area. Excellent food - a well cooked sirloin steak for me and a delicious pork steak for my partner. well served by Alan and his friendly staff in warm and welcoming surroundings

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overlooking the historic Bude Canal, with lovely walled gardens and just a short walk to the beaches and shops, the Falcon Hotel has a most attractive location. Established in 1798, it still retains that old world charm and atmosphere. The bedrooms are very well appointed, and have flat screen televisions with freeview and Sky. The hotel has an excellent local reputation for the quality of food, both in the Coachman’s Bar and Tennyson’s Restaurant. ... more   less
