Stayed there last week, strange place. Lovely reception and public rooms but the passages to our room were dirty, unkempt and cold, stained carpets and dirty windows. In our bedroom, I accept its an old building, but we laid in bed under the window with a draught blowing all night. Bath dirty so had to get someone to clean it,... More

Recently stayed here for one night and some aspects are spot on and other fall a bit short. The Reception check in and check out was short and sweet; they couldn't find my booking at first, not much of a warm welcome not a lot of information given, we had to ask where everything was; dinner, breakfast etc and again...

Spent a day here for meeting. The room was freezing cold despite asking several times for the heating to be turned on. An electric heater eventually delivered but made little difference. Buffet was fine, good variety and quantity. Spent an hour in the car travelling home with the heater blasting full on to get warm. Staff were friendly and helpful... More

We were here for a weekend, visiting our daughter who is at the Uni in Falmouth. We were immediately taken in by the impressive looking building, and found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Our room (29) was well-proportioned, but unfortunately the radiators could not be made to work - and this being a cold November evening, it was... More

The Alverton, Truro is magnificent. You would never guess that it is minutes away from the town. My husband and I choose the Alverton for our wedding and they couldn’t have done more for us! Nicki the wedding coordinator was AMAZING. If we needed anything she sorted it before we had chance to ask. Nicki couldn’t have been more helpful.... More

The hotel looks recently refurbished and the room looked good -when I could find the light switches! The plumbing from the room above was noisy gurgling right by my head. Dinner was average and breakfast was laughable with 3 strips of chargrilled bacon and tomato ketchup. I'd recommend Mannings over this every time.

We went to the Alverton for a dinner function organised by a local business for about 100 people. We arrived early and found the staff in the bar brasserie area pleasant and efficient. I began to have doubts when I paid £14.40 for a scotch and a very small glass of very flat champagne. I think the bottle had been... More
