really enjoyed our 3 night stay, friendly staff and newly refurbished room. Only not five stars as menu was a bit limited, kids pizza not great and no kids cutlery available (picky but when offering kids menu - you kind of need kids cutlery for little ones!). Cant fault hotel though and breakfasts were great.

The free meal for two... More

Staying here for a family funeral and after a traumatic drive down from London (breakdown, hire car) it was lovely to be able to relax in the great rooms which were clean, spacious with comfy beds, piping hot water a great views down the valley towards Falmouth. Worth checking if the room has a bath as not all do and... More

We have eaten at the County Arms a couple of times before and had always been very pleased and recommended it. After today, however, I will be warning people off. The food today was burned, tiny portions with items missing, we witnessed staff sticking fingers into meals to check temperature and generally poor quality. We did complain (politely) but there...

I booked through Bookings.com. I requested a room with a shower as I recently had bilateral knee replacement. Arriving at the hot we had a room with bath.

We came across the county arms website whilst looking for a venue for a wedding reception. The dining space and number of rooms onsite seemed perfect for the number of guests we would be bringing. I called up and provisionally booked the date we wanted and was told a manager would call back in a couple of hours to talk... More
