Returned again this year on our Wedding anniversary and were fortunate to get an upgraded room at the back with a Juliet Balcony looking over the fields at the back ( I'm not sure what is happening behind but the building works seem to have stalled for over a year and it did not affect out stay) As ever the...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel from the 15th to the 17th of August for a Birthday weekend. We chose to stay in Truro as it was central for all the areas we wished to travel to in Cornwall. The hotel is set on the main road with a beautiful view of the country side at the other... More

Really enjoyed our stay, everyone was so friendly and helpful. Kelly in particular was great and also the bar staff were busy, but very polite! The breakfast was excellent value for money and the real ale was just right for me! I would not hesitate to book here again! David

Excellent venue for family meal. Great service from Nicci, a really charming girl and an asset to the Hotel! The food was really great and if anything, maybe the portion sizes were a little too large!

Absolutely brilliant! Can't fault this place. Staff very friendly and the food it's great at all times of the day. Our superior room was lovely 😊 will definitely come back. (Only one small niggle, the back of the hotel could do with tidying up, where renovation work has taken place). We had a superior room and would definitely stay again.... More

Lovely little pub with close proximity to Truro centre. Huge comfortable and very clean room. I didn't eat in the evening but the menu looked very reasonable. Breakfast was good with great countryside views.

Stayed for 5 nights whilst on a holiday in Cornwall, whilst there we received excellent customer services from both the hotel and bar staff. The room (27) was very big for a standard room and had all of the thing you would expect from a hotel in this price bracket, we were next to the out door bar area which... More

We found the County Arms by accident after a long day of bicycling. The manager, Anson, and his staff went way above and beyond helping us with our stay. The property itself is quite modern, has a nice restaurant and pub, and very pleasant outdoors seating.
