The Falmouth Hotel Joins The Cornwall Hotel Collection

Rich in local heritage and dressed in an age-old charm, The Cornwall Hotel Collection is delighted to announce the acquisition of one of Falmouth’s favourite historical landmarks.

Stepping into a legacy of award-winning hospitality, The Falmouth Hotel once again falls back into local ownership. Alongside The Greenbank and our sister hotel, The Alverton, the famed Victorian leisure spot makes for the perfect addition to The Cornwall Hotel Collection. Marking a significant milestone for Falmouth’s growing hospitality landscape, the possibilities for the Cornish seafront destination are truly endless.

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.”

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.”

Experts in honouring the heritage of historic properties, The Cornwall Hotel Collection are known for delivering world-class guest experiences. Undoubtedly, this acquisition ensures that The Falmouth Hotel will be protected and preserved by experienced hands. Here marks the dawn of a brand-new age for the cherished local landmark.
