“Very Tired”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

I found this hotel to be very tired-looking and some areas verging on grubby. My single room was clean and the bed comfortable, but the wallpaper was starting to come away and the window frame was dirty and had broken catches. There were cigarette burns on the furniture. The bathroom was generally clean but small details like a grubby tumbler-holder let it down. It was a struggle to make yourself understood with one member of staff who could barely speak English. It was cheap for a single room at £35 including breakfast, but I would not use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Don't go there!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

The hotel is well signposted on the roads within half a mile which is always my first concern when without SatNav. This was my first time at this hotel which I chose rather than the Travel Lodge for certain reasons on this occasion. I found my room and bathroom at the Tregenna was spacious, warm, comfortable, clean and bright with good beds, sheets and towels. Receptionist was very personable and helpful. The hotel appears to be privately owned and shows that money needs to be spent in certain areas on what the ever-demanding guest now expects.This is not a chain hotel or bedroom factory where share-holders' money has been used to keep it spanking new. For my airy, bright ground floor room with breakfast, free parking directly outside my room and the cost involved, I was very happy.

The new owners have put the chalet room rate up to £70
At the same time- there are no longer any packs of biscuits left in the rooms.
The breakfast has been reduced to 2 stark options "vegetarian" or "non-vegetarian".There is no longer breakfast fruit- and no longer any alternative choices- such as kippers or poached haddock.
For £70 much better value is available locally.
It's a shame the new owner is destroying value and with it occupancy. Precisely the wrong way to go.
