The Greenbank Hotel, Falmouth, Cornwall

UPDATED 22nd MARCH 2020: It is with heavy hearts that The Greenbank will be temporarily closed for an initial period of three months. Safeguarding our team, guests, the local community, and our NHS has always been our number one priority, so after closing our food and beverage operations on 18th March, we feel that the time has now come to fully batten down the hatches. It is our duty to be part of the nationwide solution to stop the spread of Covid-19 and to protect each other. We will constantly review the situation and follow the UK government guidelines as they are announced over the coming weeks. Whilst we cannot confirm when the hotel will re-open, our reception team will be monitoring emails, but this could take up to 7 days for a response so please bear with us. Please email to discuss any bookings. Our full statement can be read here.

Float away in unforgettable surroundings. Submerge yourself in characterful history. Dive into delicious food and breathe in the fresh sea air. Nestled on Falmouth harbour, The Greenbank Hotel blends the best of coastal Cornish living with the finest in contemporary comfort, so you can experience life – on the water’s edge.

“With neutral, calming colour-palettes and floor-to-ceiling windows, it's as if the outside harbour is brought inside; you feel as though you could step out of your bed and onto the water's edge….”

Harper's Bazaar

"The best rooms have balconies, but those with bay windows are almost as good – hours can be spent watching life on the river pass by, with its brown-sailed oyster dredgers, sailing craft and jauntily painted passenger ferries."

The Telegraph

"The beds are some of the comfiest we’ve slept in – although they're narrowly beaten as our favourite thing about the place by the harbour views from the room’s bay window."

Escapism Magazine

"The rooms are comfy, painted in heritage shades of pearl, pewter and charcoal, sometimes with a single wall of bright hipster wallpaper but never too flamboyant. The river views are the star turn here."

London Evening Standard

"The Greenbank straddles alongside Falmouth Harbour meaning you have that fresh, slightly salty air surround you which is absolutely wonderful."

Global Mouse Travels

"On the outside the hotel maintains a distinct maritime aesthetic but inside, its rooms are stylish with all the modern touches and stunning harbour views to boot."

The Independent

"Is there anything better than waking up to a view of - and the sound of - the sea?"

Harper's Bazaar

"The Greenbank Hotel is almost as old as Falmouth itself, dating back to 1640. Home to a classic style that boasts a contemporary elegance, the large communal spaces are flooded with natural light where panoramic harbour views are a focal point."

The Telegraph

"Fully equipped with a bar, outdoor patio, on-site spa and super helpful staff at your beck and call, you’ll find the Greenbank Hotel a welcome respite from busy city life, packed with that famous Cornish charm and hospitality."

London Evening Standard

"The Greenbank is a little piece of Cornish history in itself, originally serving as a lodging house for sea captains during the town’s maritime heyday. Walking through the main doors we were immediately struck by the view through tall windows that run along the front of the hotel – a beautiful riverside panorama that stretches right over to Flushing on the opposite side of the bay. Arrive by boat and you can moor up at the private pontoons."

Olive Magazine

"Sink into an inspiring setting with a characterful history and contemporary comfort at The Greenbank, Falmouth’s oldest hotel and a coastal retreat with lashings of style and maritime heritage at its heart."

The Telegraph
