My wife and I stayed for 7 nights (DBB) last week and we thought the hotel was very good. The coastal situation is perfect and our bedroom had a panoramic view over the bay. All the management and staff were very friendly and helpful, and the meals, breakfast and dinner, were delicious.

My wife and I stayed at the Porth Avallen for four nights in April. The hotel, though slightly tired looking in places, was very welcoming and friendly. The staff were all efficient and attentive and amiable, full of advice on how we could spend our time and what we should see. Our room (room 6), classified as superior, was large... More

My fiancé booked us a nights stay on Valentine's night and booked us in for dinner. We were checked in and went up to our room where we were welcomed with wallpaper coming of the walls, a damp smell, mould in the bathroom, and the last guests used soap. By this time we were upset and just wanted to go... More

Actually stayed here in August 2012 and only just started using trip advisor! We stayed in the Avallon Suite on our wedding night and we loved every minute! As soon as we walked into the hotel we were greeted by the owner and invited into the bar for a complementary drink. We sat at two big armchairs facing the window... More

I had initially booked this hotel for 4 nights, but this had to be cut short, after a cough and cold developed in the first 24 hours, resulting in me being hospitalised in Truro for the rest of the week with pneumonia. With that in mind, my review is somewhat limited. Upon arrival, I found the hotel to be very... More
