Falmouth Beach Hotel is a hotel on the seafront of Gyllyngvase beach in Falmouth, Cornwall. The four storey 120 room hotel was operated by Best Western.[1][2]

On 30 April 2012 the hotel was devastated by a fire which broke out on the third floor at roughly 12 noon, which caused the roof to collapse and significant damage to the building.[3][1] The blaze was tackled by some 100 fire fighters.[4] Amongst the guests at the hotel at the time of the fire was Blur guitarist Graham Coxon.[1]

The hotel was bought by hotel proprietor Nigel Carpenter and reopened in April 2013 and now has 24 affordable bedrooms and apartments.

Falmouth Beach Hotel offers a warm welcome, comfortable bedrooms, beach-front self-catering apartments and a family holiday cottage.
