Ten of us went for our wedding lunch time meal. Food was disgusting very dry and over cooked, and our table wasn't even ready for us when we arrived, not like they were busy that time of the day.We couldn't wait to leave.Would never recommend.Spoilt my whole wedding day. Thanks

After staying in several small inns and B&Bs in Cornwall it was nice to stay in at least one larger hotel/motel with big rooms where two people could spread out and open their luggage without first having to conduct a survey. It's not far from the train station in the Highertown section of Truro. Reception here was very helpful with... More

To meet friends nearby,we booked the hotel off the internet.What a lovely surprise to find it exceeded all our expectations.The staff were really friendly and helpful.Our room was large and spotlessly clean with the food being value for money.Beautiful views from the large veranda and I would have no hesitation in recommending to family and friends.

Been here in the past and was passing and decided to pop in for lunch. Being a head chef and having a vast knowledge of food, the food has taken a huge decline from a reasonably good place to eat to the norm nowadays ie. Witherspoon, table table. Microwave, overproduced, boring, tasteless filth! Won't be revisiting!!

This was our first visit to a St Austell hotel, but following this experience, will have no hesitation in using again. Large room, nicely decorated, affective air conditioning and exceptionally comfortable bed. The sofa was also converted to a bed for our son, but as the room was so large, there was still plenty of room - unlike many hotels.... More

Ideally suited for anyone on business at Treelike hospital. Room was spotless and great for working in with consistent wi-fi signal. Special mention for Paisley on reception who was most helpful and friendly. Visiting again soon :00

Been there for the last bank holiday we didn't enjoy full the hotel but for all the time we spend there I can say this place is just perfect. Kind staff always ready to help yourself, always nice smell in all the hotel, excellent cleaning of the room, quite good breakfast buffet.

Edible food. Drinkable liquid. Friendly staff. The County Arms has become an average eating and drinking house, though the development of the hotel (not experienced by myself) does look stylish and of a good quality, dependent on how much they charge. The bar and restaurant are just very mainstream and chain-like: slightly above Wetherspoons standard food when before I would... More
