The family room were perfect for my three kids. The room for my wife and I overlooked part of the nicely landscaped grounds. The hotel is on the outskirts of Falmouth. A quiet and serene location, close to the Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens. It's nice to just walk the gardens after a meal. This is an old hotel. The lifts...

Thanks for reviewing your stay. We try to balance the needs of our dog owning guests with those of our other guests to strike a happy medium. We have extensive grounds for dog walking along with some great circular coastal footpath walks just minutes away.

This was our 6th New Year's break at Budock Vean. Once again it was all a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The facilities, the optional competitions including golf and the walking all make for a most relaxing stay after the chaos of Christmas. Old friends re-met, excellent food and those afternoon cream teas brilliant. New Year's Eve as always was a special...

We enjoyed our stay but it was a bit expensive for the older room that we had which was small not particularly well equipped. We would give 3.5 stars were there the option. The indoor pool was quite nice and the tennis courts were good. There is a lot of absolutely gorgeous walking in the area. However, the vibe of...

Slightly old fashioned decor. The photos on the internet make is look funkier than it is. My first room had mould in so they moved me and the second room had a broken door. Beautiful gardens. Location is the best thing about the hotel.

Previous comments pretty well say it all. My wife and I have been to the Budock Vean with friends over several years. This time we repeated a Christmas party visit - and the main ingredients of a great stay are still there - super location, friendly staff, lovely food and the added value of golf and walks..thank you and well...

Beautiful room overlooking the golf course, pool & sauna lovely, food & service excellent.Massage wonderful. Only drawback was a noisy group of women who'd maybe had a little too much to drink who were in the jacuzzi so I couldn't go in there.

Having stayed over many years it is so nice to see standards maintained. The food as always was superb, the room, although slightly dated, was clean and comfortable, and the staff friendly and helpful.
