Royal Duchy, Falmouth - a very good choice overall
It is expensive to stay at the Royal Duchy but it provides a very good experience. The coronavirus safety measures were thorough and inspired confidence. The room (Leeward suite) was spacious, well appointed and comfortable. The staff and service were very good. We did not eat in the hotel except for breakfast which was good. The hotel overlooks the bay and has a very pleasant terrace and grassy area from which to enjoy a drink and the views.
