The Falmouth Hotel Joins The Cornwall Hotel Collection

We are delighted to announce the latest addition to family. A favourite local landmark famed for its grandeur and heritage, we look forward to welcoming The Falmouth Hotel into a new era.

After 20 years, The Falmouth Hotel once again falls back into local ownership alongside The Alverton and our sister hotel, The Greenbank. Making for the perfect addition to The Cornwall Hotel Collection, here marks a significant milestone for Falmouth’s growing hospitality landscape. Draped in an old-age glamour, The Falmouth steps into a century-long legacy of award-winning hospitality. Endless possibilities await this famed Victorian leisure spot.

Heading up the purchase is Ben Young, Managing Director of the collection.

“Falmouth deserves its eponymous hotel to shine brightly as a beacon of pride for the town,” he explains. “This is more than just a business deal for us. The Cornwall Hotel Collection has many personal ties and anecdotal links to The Falmouth Hotel. My family were on the Board of Directors for the original company, right up until the hotel was acquired by the Richardson Group in 2005. The foundation stone itself was laid in 1865 by the brother of the first owner of our hotel in Truro.

Furthermore, we believe that The Falmouth Hotel should properly reflect the town’s vibrant spirit and rich heritage,” Ben continues. “Through careful restoration and strategic enhancements, we will create a hotel destination that celebrates Falmouth’s unique identity while offering outstanding hospitality. We are focused on preserving and improving the hotel for the benefit of the town, the employees, and all stakeholders involved.”

A word from Roger French, Chairman of the Board of Directors

“We are honoured to welcome The Falmouth Hotel into The Cornwall Hotel Collection family. Our roots in Cornwall go back generations, and we understand the responsibility that comes with stewarding such iconic establishments. The Falmouth Hotel holds a special place in the hearts of many. We are committed to ensuring its legacy endures for generations to come.”

The Cornwall Hotel Collection is known for crafting world-class guest experiences, and honouring the heritage of historic properties is paramount in each endeavour. Marking the dawn of a new age for The Falmouth, it is clear that the cherished local landmark will be protected and preserved by experienced hands.
