Located in the pole position on Falmouth’s superb sea front, The Royal Duchy Hotel is a luxurious haven of timeless elegance. Those panoramic views across manicured lawns over Falmouth Bay and Pendennis Castle are unforgettable, and what could be more relaxing than sipping a cocktail on the terrace or in one of the sun loungers overlooking the sea with your view framed by palm trees. The 43 bedrooms are all luxurious, with crisp linen duvets, Gilchrest & Soames toiletries and many boast spectacular sea views. The newly renovated rooms have a maritime feel, with sea blue and green offset by stylish neutral shadings. Extra beds or cots can be ordered to accommodate children as well. Dinner in the 2 AA Rosette-winning Pendennis Restaurant is a delight, with menus showcasing the best of Cornish produce. The Terrace Lounge is a more informal option, and in fine weather a dish of local mussels or crab on the Sun Terrace always hits the spot. The stylish Hub Champagne Bar is ideal for ore-dinner aperitifs and post-dinner nightcaps. The spa at The Royal Duchy aptly named Retreat. The indoor swimming pool, hot ceramic beds and pine sauna are complemented a relaxing range of health and beauty treatments available in the dedicated treatment room. Children are well catered for, including children’s play areas, a children’s pool, babysitting and baby listening services and full family entertainment programme throughout the holidays. Local sandy beaches and lively Falmouth harbour are just a short stroll away, and The Royal Duchy is also well placed for visiting a host of Cornish beauty spots including St Ives, Sennan Cove, St Michael’s Mount, the Minack Theatre, Trebah Garden and much more.
