Being a popular holiday spot, hotels in Falmouth are in good supply for a town of its size...
There are plenty of attractive options, with many gorgeous Georgian townhouses taking on a new life as small waterfront hotels in the town centre.
Also in the central area of Falmouth is a great selection of independent, family-run hotels, with good facilities, restful rooms and great breakfasts with to kickstart the day. Don't expect to find the well-known chains in Falmouth itself as all hotels are locally run and managed.
The long stretch of coastline around Falmouth Bay also hosts a number of grand luxury hotels. Surrounded by perfectly groomed grounds and providing a great white backdrop to lovely beaches, these Falmouth hotels are beacons of comfort and old-fashioned hospitality and provide the perfect setting for a Cornish cream tea (remember, when in Cornwall, it's jam on the scone followed by the clotted cream).
The countryside surrounding Falmouth is the place to look for manor-house treasures and lodge-style hotels, in areas such as Budock Water and Mawnan Smith. While not always convenient for accessing the town centre (if you don't have your own transport), these country hotels are luxurious and offer enough amenities and activities to keep everyone occupied for hours. If you do have your own transport, then Newquay is only 47 minutes away in the car.
For a beach-based break, stay near the sands of Castle Beach, in the town, or at one of the area's other fine beaches which run south from Pendennis Castle towards Mawnan. These include Gyllyngvase Beach, Swanpool Beach and Maenporth Beach, which is a sandy cove two miles from Falmouth town centre.
