Escape on a romantic break to Merchants Manor Hotel
Hot tubs hidden in a secluded garden, snooze-inducing massages, and an award-winning restaurant with a superb wine menu and one of the best Sunday roasts in the south-west. Welcome to Merchants Manor.
There are plenty of hotels to choose from for a romantic break in Cornwall but this Falmouth hotel perfectly packs all the elements needed for a romantic escape into elegant Edwardian surroundings.
The hotel isn’t a stone’s throw away from Cornwall’s famous topaz waters like some of its competitors but some rooms do have that all-important sea view and both the town centre with its myriad of locally-run shops, cafes and restaurants and the golden sands of Gyllyngvase Beach are a 10-minute walk away.
In the summer months, you’ll probably spend most of your time at the beach before returning for a dip in one of the outdoor hot tubs followed by indulging in a tasting menu at Rastella, featuring the likes of plump scallops with homemade Sriracha sauce paired with local wines.
Come winter, the indoor pool and aromatherapy steam room are the perfect tonic after windswept strolls along the South West Coastal Path in the winter months. Speaking of tonic, why not pull up a plush pew in the Study Bar and enjoy a cocktail in front of a roaring fire.
Whatever time of year you book a stay here, one thing's for sure, you'll find it hard to leave.
