I stayed only one night and didn't take dinner. The bedroom was very clean, spacious, and newly refurbished, as is the rest of the hotel. Very attractively done, with modern bath and shower etc. all usual things provided to a high standard. Lovely, high quality, fine cotton sheets, soft down pillows and duvet and a super comfy bed. The hotel... More

This is a marvellous place to stay - either for business or pleasure ... Friendly staff / nice rooms - no need to splash out on the Junior Suite though (we stayed there the first night as it was the only room avail - but it is noisy) room 17 is splendid !! Dinner was very tasty tooo!

Our first visit to the Southwest of UK started with a wonderful stay at this well decorated and well run hotel. Decent food and beautiful and comfortable rooms and last but not least the friendly staff did it all.

We were booked into The Grosvenor Arms by a company we were visiting in the area and were more than happy with their choice! What a lovely hotel. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very spacious, good amenities although the wifi was a little erratic. Beds are so comfortable with duvets, pillows and sheets that have a luxurious feel. I...

I travel a lot and I stay in hotels quite regularly. The Grosvenor Arms was a wonderful little find for a weekend, as we wanted a quiet break. It is not cheap, but hey - its great to be treated once in a while. I was really impressed with the look of this place, with large room, comfy big bed,... More

The rooms are lovely. Comfortable beds, nice bathrooms. Great, attentive staff and lovely kippers for breakfast. The food at dinner was disappointing. The menu looks great with lots of fashionable items on the menu, but the passion that the menu was created with is not carried over into the work in the kitchen. For the first time in my life...

Thought I'd treat us to a Junior Suite for a short stay, £225 a night so was expecting some luxury and whilst the shared areas were nice despite poor carpeting the room itself was a real let down. Whilst it was a good size it was full of tired, stained and mismatching furniture, no fridge and one of the smallest... More

On our regular commute from London to Cornwall, we happened on this place. The courtyard looked beautiful...and it was. Just what we were looking for as an afternoon tea spot. Delightful service, spotlessly clean, no scones but some excellent fruit cake instead. What a find!

We stayed at this hotel last week for two nights. I asked to be upgraded to a bigger room, we were given room 1 which is located at the side of the hotel. The room itself was very nice, recently refurbished, huge bathroom, comfy bed very clean. Unfortunately we had a view of bins and were woken up early by... More

We were a party of six. The hotel dominates the main square in this wonderful town.It is very smart at the front, and the common parts are lovely. Especially the courtyard. The staff at reception were very welcoming. A strong focus on customer satisfaction comes through. The rooms were expensive (£200) but very spacious, nicely done up . A bitof... More
