Recently stayed at The Donnington for a long weekend. Was impressed by the friendly greeting by the lady who showed us our room. All the staff were knowledgeable about the area, which was good as it was our first visit to Truro. Rooms were spotless and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We felt part of a family...

Given a room on the ground floor in the left hand house Opened the door to a stench of damp.... Looked up to a grid ceiling as you would find in an office. Bathroom mouldy.... Windows locked so unable to air. Vile and disgusting sums this hole up

We stayed here for three nights and used The Donnington as a base to visit Cornwall and surrounding areas. The room was basic but comfortable and had all we needed. The breakfasts are very good and the service was friendly.

Mattress on the bed was ancient and uncomfortable, bed linen did not appear fresh. Toilet and shower fully functional but dated. Breakfast felt cramped and rushed. Paid 60 pounds out of season and wouldn't go back.

We needed to be in Truro overnight and found this place through LateRooms.com. It was easy to find with ample free parking. We were warmly received and our double room was spacious with a large ensuite bath and shower room. Breakfast was tasty and served well and in a reasonable time. We will happily stay again if needing to be... More

Stayed here for just 1 night whilst touring Cornwall. It's a nice place with a proper traditional guest house feel. I took a single room which had an en-suite shower and basin. The toilet was down the landin. The tarriff fairly reflected this. The room was nice with TV, hospitality tray and the bed was very comfortable. Although fine for... More

I arrived at The Donnington without a booking late one Friday night in July 2014. I had been let down elsewhere. The friendly young man immediately took me in, offered a room, carried my heavy bag up several flights of stairs. The room was clean and pleasant with a lovely view of Truro. Next morning the friendly breakfast staff looked... More

Just stayed here only for one night to visit some family. Room was clean and tidy with a fridge which I suspect would be useful if you were staying for longer. Comfortable bed, good breakfast and very friendly staff. Will definitely stay again when this way again - great value.
