St Michael’s Hotel reopens


St Michael’s Hotel & Spa in Falmouth has reopened for business, following this week’s fire at the neighbouring Falmouth Beach Hotel.

St Michael’s Hotel, which was evacuated on Monday (April 30) due to the fire at the neighbouring hotel, was closed for two days while staff dealt with smoke damage to some of the bedrooms and public areas. After a major clean-up operation the hotel reopened in time for the Bank Holiday weekend.

Following the evacuation, hotel guests were accommodated at other local hotels.

The Greenlawns Hotel , in particular, helped staff and guests of St Michael’s throughout the day.

Commenting on the recent events, proprietor of St Michael’s Hotel & Spa, Nigel Carpenter said: “We are all very saddened by the loss of our next door neighbour. Our thoughts are with Hazel Evans, owner of The Falmouth Beach Resort Hotel, all of the staff and their families.

“It is at times like these when you realise how strong the local community is. Many of our fellow hoteliers, suppliers, customers and friends have all been in touch to offer support and we are grateful to all those who have helped us to get St Michael’s operational again.”
