Fire-Hit Hotel Demolished
4:13pm 27th June 2012
The Cornish hotel that burnt to the ground in a massive fire is being demolished.
Work is starting on tearing down the Falmouth Beach Resort.
Locals have been meeting bosses to talk about plans for a new design.
General Manager Ryan Ohly reckons that is important: "We took on, sort of sixty-two thousand people a year, staying at the hotel and that doesn't include the local people coming in, the functions, the weddings. So, yeah it was a massive part of the trade coming into Falmouth. The community has been brilliant and yeah, everyone has their ideas of what they want to see here.
"It was easily the worst day of my working career. It is very sad that it is going to be demolished, but unfortunately the fire happened, but we have to look forward now. The nice thing is, there's light at the end of the tunnel and there's going to be a brand new hotel where the old Falmouth Beach habits."
