“EXCELLENT STAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2009

My Wife and myself were lucky to stumble on this hotel in the heart of Truro.We were greeted by very helpful reception staff. We were originally only staying for one night,however was so happy with the style of the the hotel and room which are very contemporary, we decided to stay an extra night. The food was of a very high standard and the staff could not do enough for us. We have stayed in many hotels in this country and also in the US and must say Mannings Hotel sits at the top for Excellence

Stayed at Mannings with my two and a half year old son,the room was cleaned to a high standard daily,towels and coffee etc replenished. Mannings is isn an excellent location close to Truro Cathedral right in the heart of the city. During our stay my little boy became ill and the staff at Mannings were so helpful I cant thank them enough.I had a lovely stay at Mannings and will definitely be staying there on my return to Truro.

We spent two nights in the Mannings Hotel at the end of July, and we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was updated to a modern high standard, but it included enough original features to give it character. Service was both friendly and professional. The breakfast was very good, with both a cold buffet and hot breakfast made to order. The bar area was also very comfortable and we enjoyed an hour relaxing there at the end of the evening. We did not eat at the restaurant. The room itself had been renovated recently, and although it was quite small (with low ceilings, as we were on the top floor), it was comfortable, and the bathroom was large and well-designed.
Overall, a very good hotel, a bit expensive, but worth it for a weekend get-away.

A good hotel and staff friendly. The noise from the night clubbers was horrendous at about 3am, not the fault of the hotel but the window needed to be open to cool the room!
However we did find a teashirt under are pillow (Clean), the food that was presented in the restaurant,breakfast hall was of a high standard Overall an enjoyable stay,

This hotel is very cosy and clean. A member of staff kindly picked me up from the railway station at 18.00 hrs as it was pouring with rain and Truro station a taxi free zone!

I received a free upgrade to an executive room which was very pleasant but a bit pokey. The worst bit was the single glazed windows which meant that the seagulls woke me at 3.50 hrs....!

The food is quite good though the weird apple, mixed berry and rhubarb pie was terrible after it's brief appointment with the microwave, achieving that weird hot and cold consistency. However the main course was pleasant enough and the waiting staff excellent.

I do think that £3 for a serving of bread is extortionate and should be provided with the meal anyway, and not viewed as an extra.

I do think the hotel overall represents good value for money. It was spotlessly clean, cosy and the staff very friendly. Well done to everyone but do something about the weird fruit tart, please!

Above average hotel and staff friendly. The noise from seagulls was horrendous at 5am, not the fault of the hotel but the window needed to be open to cool the room!
Needs some fine tuning, new flexible hose on shower, new shower curtain (if a curtain can't be avoided they need to be renewed regulary), some grouting needed, creaking/uneven floor, door closer on room door needs readjusting as in banged shut, no doubt waking everyone in the hotel. Breakfast chaotic, apparently due to staff shortage, but numbers on the table would help waiting staff. Needed three requests for coffee and waited 45minutes for a cooked breakfast. Overall an enjoyable stay, offer was very good value and restaurant service good.

This hotel is right in the middle of Truro, the Cathedral is only about 100m away!
The place has clearly been recently refurbished, our room was an 'executive double'. Spacious room and bathroom, comfortable bed with luxury white linen.
Breakfast was really good, and cooked to order so no half cold, rubbery scrambled eggs here.
From our arrival at the door to departure, staff extremely friendly and courteous.
Overall our hotel stay could not be faulted.
I would say that a lift, and maybe room A/C is a notable omission - having this would certainly be well worth a 4 star rating.
When next in Truro, would definitely stay here again.
