Stayed here for 3 nights from 5th July. Lovely room, excellent breakfast with a good choice on the menu. Only 5 minutes walk from Truro town centre and only 2 minutes from a local pub if you fancy a drink and don't want to walk too far. Plenty of parking - just need to negotiate the narrow access road which... More

Previous reviewers have just about said it all, I agree wholeheartedly - Heather welcomed us as though we were old friends (and so did Molly!) We couldn't fault our room (Ground Floor) which was very spacious, comfortable and perfectly presented, fresh clean (or new?) towels each day. Breakfast was anything you wanted, and as much as you wanted, beautifully cooked... More

Regarding to the place, its a beautiful and quiet place where relax, and its very comfortable and well decorated. The town centre... More

We like to go away for a short break before Christmas to recharge and complete our Christmas shopping. Tor Vean was an excellent find, not just for its location, within walking distance of the centre of Truro with its excellent selection of shops and Christmas markets; but our stay itself. We felt so welcomed from the moment we arrived to... More

I'm reluctant to share this jewel in the crown as I fear there may not be room for me next time! I have just returned home and have booked to go back in December. What a beautiful place, run by the wonderful Heather who made me so welcome. It is spotless, very well equipped rooms, fantastic breakfasts that can beat... More

We stayed 4 days and nights at Tor Vean and I can honestly say it was the best B and B that we have stayed in in Cornwall. Heather was the supreme hostess, her breakfasts are out of this world and the accommodation excellent. Anyone wanting to stay in the Truro area will not find a better or more welcoming... More

Heather could not have made my stay more comfortable. The house has been gorgeously restored, with many thoughtful little touches that make the experience a real treat. I slept like a baby and the breakfasts were delicious. Thank you cards line the walls and my fellow guests were regular visitors - it was easy to see why. I will certainly... More

Had a wonderful stay here in September 2014. Our room was spacious,spotless very comfortable. Much thought had been given to the little things that make travelling easier. Breakfast was delicious. Nothing was too much trouble for our hostess, and would definitely recommend to others.

Had a wonderful 4 days at Tor Vean and Heather, our host, did everything to make our stay a memorable experience. The residence is beautifully restored and the rooms are spacious, comfortable and spotless. A lot of thought has gone into what a traveller may need whilst on-the-road and living out of suitcases. The location is really convenient, as is... More

My husband and I stayed with Heather for 5 nights in early April 2014. We had conversed with Heather extensively prior to our arrival and she was most helpful and very prompt in her responses. The B&B was easy to find and the off-street parking a definite plus. Tor Vean is a lovely old building with modern facilities that complement... More
