Silver Star status for Falmouth hotel


Merchants Manor hotel in Falmouth has been awarded Four Silver Stars and a Breakfast Award by AA Hotel & Hospitality Services.

The hotel’s restaurant, Rastella, has also retained its 3 AA Rosette rating, held since 2018.

The AA’s Hotel Silver Star Award recognises “highly recommended hotels offering a superior level of quality within their star rating, high standards of hotel keeping, in particular, hospitality, service and cleanliness and an AA Rosette award for the quality of their food”.

This new award sees Merchants Manor’s previous Four Star rating upgraded and the hotel now classified as a Four AA Silver Star hotel.

The Breakfast Award recognises the breakfast offering at the hotel, with its emphasis on local produce.

Owner Sioned Parry-Rudlin commented: “We are delighted with our new Silver Star rating and very happy to have the quality of our breakfast and passion for local produce acknowledged.

“The retainment of our 3 AA Rosette award for Rastella is also of huge importance to us. Food is a key part of what we offer at Merchants Manor and with our head chef Hylton Espey we are always striving for better.”
