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

We were upgraded to a sea view room as the hotel was quiet. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We ate here twice and the food was good and no more expensive than other places for similar quality. Breakfasts were freshly cooked and very tasty. Good location on a quiet residential road, with access to the coastal path.

We went here christmas day for christmas dinner.we were asked to pay in full before the meal which we thought was a bit odd. On the day we were shown to our table . There was no waitress service to take our drink orders. We had to get up from our meal to get drinks from bar which some persons... More

Had a meal at this hotel and was very impressed what's little gem of a place. If you want a quiet charming evening out go here. We went for a drink and ended up having an excellent and succulent rib eye steak served by attentive staff cooked by an excellent cook. The hotel is charming and the bar gives off... More

I have stayed here before, mainly for the superb coastal view and proximity to my parents' house, and not because of the hotel's inherent qualities. So it was this Christmas too, except this time I was with my boyfriend so we booked the suite. 'Suite' to me means either apartment-sized or apartment-configurated: the Porth Avellen suite is just a normal... More

We've stayed at this hotel three times and just love it. The hotel is situated in a beautiful setting overlooking the ocean. The decor is beautiful - old world charm. The staff were exceptional. So welcoming and warm and the service given had such a personal touch. It feels like coming home to family every time we return to the... More

Stayed here for 3 days. The entire crew at the hotel were fantastic, special mention goes to Jasper, Emma and the chef(s), as the food was excellent. The suite was, needless to say, amazing with stunning views of the bay. Made my trip to Cornwall so much more enjoyable. Will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!
