One of Falmouth's finest hotels
Given a warm welcome by a porter in traditional uniform. He directed me to a free car parking space and carried my large suitcase up to my room. The hotel is very close to the sea and is of the highest calibre with an indoor swimming pool and sauna also available. Cooked breakfasts in the sea view restaurant were excellent and housekeeping cleaned the room every morning.
