The Greenbank Hotel


Welcome to The Greenbank Hotel

Rise and shine to sun-speckled harbour views. Submerge yourself in characterful history. Dive into delicious food and breathe in the sea-salt air. At The Greenbank, our unique location, rich Cornish heritage, contemporary styling and outstanding levels of service keep guests coming back, year after year. Whether you’re paddling at the shoreline, strolling the bustling cobbled streets or lounging on our terrace, we know you’ll be captivated by Falmouth and what it has to offer.

From the height of summer when the town is bustling with holiday-makers, beaches look like far-flung, exotic destinations and flip flops are the everyday attire, to the crisp autumn winter months when Christmas lights twinkle, seagulls swoop beside stormy seas and the scent of oven-baked pasties fills the streets, there is beauty and Cornish charm to be discovered 365 days a year in Falmouth, and The Greenbank is rooted deep in the history of the town.

The Water's Edge Restaurant

Breathe in the scent of sizzling bacon as the sun rises. Dive in to freshly prepared oysters as a spring breeze whips across the bay. Dine on Cornwall’s bounty as the water laps beneath you. This is a restaurant experience to be savoured. The award-winning two AA Rosette restaurant offers truly modern British cuisine – fusing styles, techniques and flavours to shape an irresistible menu.

Sample succulent seafood and fish landed in Cornwall, delicious local meats and seasonal vegetables and fruits grown and reared right on our doorstep. From artisan breads and cheeses, to foraged foods plucked from Cornish hedgerows, captains of the kitchen Nick Hodges and Bobby Southworth bring local produce to life, with inventive cuisine that is a treat for the eyes and the taste buds.

A very welcoming hotel with very friendly staff. They made our stay feel very special by adding lots of personal touches. The rooms are airy and beds comfortable. Would recommend a stay here anytime.
