Spent two nights here visiting Truro to see a friend. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. I had room 8 at the end of a corridor. No real view but I wasn't there for that. He view was better on Gunwaloe Beach for sunset! Breakfast was good. Pretty good value I think. I was certain able to fill up for... More

This is a lovely hotel. Great rooms, good food and really pleasant staff both in the hotel and the restaurant! Everything is immaculately clean and modern. The views are stunning! There is a split level decking at the rear of the restaurant where you can smoke on the lower level or simply sit on the upper level and enjoy the... More

Our room was excellent, with a lovely view across the valley and the trains passing quietly. The housekeeping was excellent, the staff in Reception friendly and helpful. One or two maintenance tasks outstanding, e.g. the plinth around the shower insecure. Suggestions for improvement: move the toilet roll holder so that one does not knock the spare roll off with ones... More

Had a great lunch their today with a friend. It was her birthday and they had put ballons on our table. The food was good and hot. Plenty of choice from sandwiches, light lunch menu up to full on dinners. I had ham egg with jacket potato as I'm not a fan of chips. They swopped the chips for a... More

First of all, don't let the exterior put you off, While this is a pub/restaurant The hotel side could rival Radison (in some aspects) First of all, I stayed for one night and easy to find, ample FREE parking, with exceptionally friendly staff. As I am disabled I stayed in room 1 next to reception, even with people checking in,... More

I stayed here for a night whilst in Truro for business recently. The hotel staff were all polite and friendly. The room was everything I needed and the shower was fantastic. The views to wake up to were a nice extra!! I enjoyed a few drinks in the bar on the evening and breakfast was very enjoyable the next morning.... More

Visited this hotel last year for 3 nights and have a great experience. My son again was playing down in Truro, so we had no reason not to book the same hotel. The room was as good as the previous year, but the food let the 4 star award down drastically No choice except everything with chips, no vegetables appeared... More
