Renowned for its superb facilties including indoor swimming pool, two AA Rosette dining, sumptuous spa treatments and outstanding customer service; the latest accolade concretes The Royal Duchy Hotel as Falmouth's leading luxury hotel. 

"We are thrilled that the hard-work of our dedicated team of staff has now been recognised by the AA, also complimenting the two AA Rosettes for dining that our Pendennis Restaurant continues to hold. The Brend family has invested considerably into the hotel over the years, with many new and exciting projects planned for the future. The Directors, Management and Staff are proud to receive this very prestigious award and looking forward to another busy year ahead"
