Family Time

Time away together is when you forge memories to last a lifetime.

Whichever time of year you visit - and whatever the age of your brood - there’s a huge variety of activities for the whole family to get stuck in to at the hotel, in Falmouth and nearby.

Indulge in the nostalgia of your own childhood with fish and chips on the beach (or sit in at Rick Stein’s casual but smart fish and chip restaurant at Discovery Quay) and hike along the headland, or create new family traditions such as pebble-skimming competitions or sailing trips in the harbour.

Little ones will love embarking on seafaring adventures at the National Maritime Museum where they can run wild in the Treasure Island Playzone, before spying real-life pirates from The Lookout Tower overlooking Falmouth Harbour.

Older kids itching to explore can set sail for themselves with a kayaking or paddle boarding expedition in the shallow waters of Gyllyngvase Beach. The town also offers a great variety of cool surf and skate shops which will delight teenagers.

However you choose to spend your days during your stay with us, you’ll find that we’ve tailored our breaks so that your precious family time will be stress-free and fun. An indoor pool, outdoor play area, family room stocked with board games and jam-packed activity programme during the school holidays means there’s plenty to keep kids entertained. Spacious bedrooms ensure a good night’s sleep for all the family, too.

And because we know that grown-ups need a little ‘me time’, we also provide spa facilities and a sauna, plus baby-listening services so that you can relax over a late supper, safe in the knowledge that the kids are fine.  

To discuss your family requirements, we do advise family rooms to be booked with our Reservations Team directly.

Please contact the hotel directly on 01326 313042 to discuss Family Rooms, so we can discuss your requirements and suitable room categories.
