What a wonderful place to stay? We arrived just before our check in or 2pm and we were greeted with smiles, friendliness and assistance! We were in room 2... And as for some of the photos and negative comments about the room on this site... That's exactly what they are... Negative! The room was big, comfortable, everything to hand, and... More

Stayed one night and was a little disappointed. We booked a superior room and perhaps this meant we were higher up! Our room was situated on the 2nd floor with steep steps so we left most of our luggage in the car as it would have been difficult to lug our bags up the steps. The room smelt a little... More

Only stayed for one night while attending a wedding at Truro, so didn't spend much time at the guest house. Located on a fairly busy road about 15 minutes walk from the station. I checked-in in the evening and was given the key to a very good en-suite single room at the front of the building next door. The room... More

Stayed here while our daughter's family borrowed our own house. The friendly service and comfortable accommodation with a lovely view of Truro and it's cathedral made it feel as if we were on holiday. It may not be a luxury hotel but we have stayed in luxury hotels that were not a patch on our comfort her. As for romance... More

Booked through hotels.com. Received a phone call morning of arrival asking what time I'd be checking in, as the lady needed to go shopping and wanted to be there when I arrived. Whilst I appreciated not turning up to no-one there, it then put me under pressure to be back from visiting my friend at the time I'd said I... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we very much appreciate your feedback. We do ask all our guests for an approximate time of arrival when they book with us. We are a family run business and so having an approximate time means we can be absolutely sure that we are here when guests arrive. We... More

Booked the hotel via Expedia as it was very close to where I needed to be in Truro. Booking was fine as was the price. Went with my 6 year old daughter. Booked the room that could sleep up to 4 people, or so I thought. My first insight into the hotel was a phone call asking me when I... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and this feedback was very useful for us. We are really sorry that you were disappointed. Your reservation that we received through Expedia was for one adult in a double en-suite room and had no time of arrival. We contacted you for an approximate time of arrival in case it... More

We stayed for 1 night and on arrival was greeted by Tracey, who was very Friendly and helpful. We were very disappointed with the room as we booked a 'Deluxe Room' which was far from Deluxe, in the bathroom the taps on the sink were loose, the curtains in the bedroom are missing hooks and didn't look good and bedside...

The owner was very friendly, the bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the shower gave a good jet of water, and the breakfast was good. Although we were in a front room the traffic was not too bad during the night (until after 7.00am). Having given the above good points, I have felt unable to grade it more than... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed a week in the guest house. The staff were very friendly and happy to help we stayed in room 1 which overlooked the cathedral. The room was nice, came with a heater as it did tend to get cold due to the sash windows. Extra duvets are also provided. I would recommend this hotel, you... More
