Good location and rooms a decent size . However the rooms are clearly secondary to the bar and restaurant downstairs and this is evident in all aspects . The breakfast was terrible with slow and casual service and no attention eg no glass for juice , 20 mins to take my order. The whole place is grubby and needs a... More

I originally wrote this review under The Barley as it's changed names. I checked in alone as my husband was working in Truro for the weekend and he was meeting me after his shift at the hospital. The staff were fantastic, so friendly, took my case to my room, which was big, clean, and overlooked the river and cathedral, the... More

We enjoyed our weekend getaway here. The room was lovely, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom excellent with a superb walk in shower.i didn't have breakfast due to an early start at work, but my wife enjoyed what was on offer. A nice place to stay, a great location next to the cathedral. Would definitely stay again!

Nice place to stay. Good clean room with a modern feel. Great shower room. Very clean and newly finished. Would recommend. Didn't eat at the hotel but it looked ok. Close to the town centre so plenty of restaurants to choose from. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only thing is limited parking but the car park across the road is... More

2nd time of staying here. Great location and bedrooms are great. Friendly staff but slooow. Breakfast in the morning was good but took too long and second time of staying i have had to ask for cereal bowls to be put out. Its location is great and if you park over the road on the council car park it's cheaper... More

Now called The Barley. Very centrally located. I stayed there one night. Was given a friendly welcome, with offer to take my suitcase upstairs. A large, clean, recently decorated bedroom with a view of Truro Cathedral. Large very comfortable bed. Large ensuite with monsoon shower, also immaculately clean. Free wifi. Did not eat there in the evening but had a... More

Good situation but dirty slippery decked area is not good sign. Pleasant receptionist/waitress. You have to pay extra to use car park! Bedroom good size and nice clean bedding and towels but shower cubicle and bathroom floor needs good scrub. Breakfast!! Just two choices of cereal. Only orange juice. 30 min wait for cooked breakfast which was cold had to... More

We stayed one night at this hotel after a concert at the Hall for Cornwall. Our room was clean, tidy, warm and welcomining. Shower room was good but the tiles and grouting needed a good bleaching in the shower area. Breakfast was a huge disappointment. Only one choice of fruit juce available (pineapple) when we arrived and hardly any cereals.... More

I stayed 2 nights at the Riverbank last week whilst in Truro on business. I was really disappointed to find out the restaurant wasn't open during the week as this had been one of the reasons I had booked to stay there. I understand there is a new owner (within the last month) and this has resulted in a decision... More

Stayed for one night whilst on business. The hotel/bar was between management so things were a little unfinished and clinical, but it has the makings of a great place to stay and eat. Bedrooms were very large, modern and bright, bathrooms were exceptional, large shower etc. Bar was empty but again could be a great place with some tweaks, great... More
