My partner and I booked this but we're a bit dubious when we realised that this premier inn was located on a business park (industrial estate)
We arrived on Wednesday 11/06/2014 and were due to book out Sunday 15/06/2014
We found the premier inn quite easily with the aid of our Sat Nav and we were made to feel extremely welcome. We were told that we could eat in the Table Table restaurant across the way called the Carclaze. The food was absolutely fantastic and the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help.
Anyway back to the premier inn. We had a nice room facing onto the car park and business park but hey we didn't go to look out of the window. Although I'm sure if I'd have had a room in the rear of the hotel I'd have looked at the views quite a few times.
You're quite high up so looking across the rooftops the views can be quite breathtaking.
The only downside with this location is if you don't have a car you're pretty much screwed. You need to be able to drive to get to anywhere as you are out of reach of local amenities and as I stated earlier you're at the top of a pretty steep hill - getting down is great but I really wouldn't want to walk up.
We went to Truro and spent a day there. Taking in the sights and even visited the cathedral. I didn't know Truro had a cathedral. We visited St Austell brewery although it was a lot smaller than we anticipated. We visited the local indoor market in St Austell but to be honest it was not that great. We did want to go to the Eden Project but time kinda ran away from us. Think we need to book longer next time round. We had a day where we went out for a drive and took in a few sights along the way like St Ives, Zennor (we stopped here for a lovely lunch with a cream tea). Then on to Pendeen where we saw the lighthouse and peered over the edge of the cliffs and watched the beautiful turquoise water breaking against the rocks at the bottom. From here we moved on to Sennen Cove ( where 2 small bottles of coke cost almost £5 although I was told the ice was free) then down to Minark Theatre but we had arrived too late to watch a performance as the last showing had already started. From here we drove back to St Austell via Penzance. We had a fabulous day and took in some amazing sights.
This was the first time I have ever been to Cornwall and it surely won't be the last. I didn't realise how far down we had booked but this did not stop us enjoying ourselves. The weather was amazing too. We had glorious sunshine and high temperatures. Sun cream is definitely a must.
