Leaving the bustle of the city behind you as you enter The Duke of Cornwall Hotel you immediately get a feel for the hotel in the welcoming decor of the entrance hall, with the ornate plaster, wood panelled walls and impressive stone fireplace, setting the scene for what is to come. You are naturally drawn towards the main reception by the grandeur of the imposing central staircase.
Amid the Corinthian style columns with their ornate capitals and deep Axminster carpeting underfoot, it is immediately apparent that the hotel has exquisite surrounds that deliver the warmth and tranquility that you’d expect from a luxury hotel.
Just off the main hall lie the Lounge and Lounge Bar, with the leather chesterfield armchairs beaconing you to sit, relax and unwind. Beyond the Lounge lies the Ballroom, which opens out before you as you enter, revealing a subtly lit room evoking memories of balls, dances and evenings of fun and laughter.
At the east end of the main reception the Dining Room awaits you, a room of very generous proportions with an imposing central chandelier. Formal in style reflecting its Victorian opulent heritage the Dining Room maintains a relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy fine food & fine wine.
Climbing the sweeping staircase to the floors above you reach the private rooms and suites. Each of the seventy two rooms enjoy the same feeling of sumptuous space due to the architecture. However, all rooms deliver complete individuality, decorated and furnished to the highest standards ensuring your stay is as luxurious and restful as you could desire.
