Falmouth Beach Hotel was a hotel on the seafront of Gyllyngvase beach in Falmouth, Cornwall operated in conjunction with the neighbouring St Michael's Hotel & Spa.[2] The original four-storey 120-room hotel was operated by Best Western.[3][4]

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.[5][3] The blaze was tackled by some 100 fire fighters.[6] Amongst the guests at the hotel at the time of the fire was Blur guitarist Graham Coxon.[3] Most of the hotel was demolished over the next months. The site stood empty for months and was eventually put up for sale due to retirement.

The hotel site was bought by hotel proprietor Nigel Carpenter and reopened in April 2013 and now has 31 bedrooms and apartments.[1][2]
