We're a smart and friendly Georgian townhouse right in the centre of Truro.Our 34 rooms and 9 apartments are beautifully designed and furnished; our busy but relaxed Bar and Brassarie's as popular with the public as it is with guests.We're not part of a chain, we're independent; taking the trouble isn't an extra, it's a basic minimum. Reception is staffed continually, there's room service until 9.30PM. We also have free wifi throughout the building and gated on-site parking.

Stayed here 11/219. Facilities are adequate but woken at 05:45 by traffic so thought should be given to secondary glazing or the likes to alleviate this. Breakfast was reasonable but I was surprised that after paying £11 for the Cornish breakfast, the cup of tea I had with it

Hello 327crawfords Thank-you for taking the time to write a review and for the comments in relation to your recent stay with us. We do appreciate all comments whether positive or negative as we do review them with the team here and use them in developing our business plan in the coming years. As we are a Grade II listed building, we are required to work with our local conservation department and believe it or not this does restrict us in regard secondary glazing. we are working with conservation though as to how we can replace our existing hand-made windows so they will conform with the Grade II listing requirements. It is true though that as a city centre hotel we can experience noise from the local traffic and community but we can offer rooms on the back of the building or higher up as our accommodation is spread over three floors. We even have 9 Apartments based just behind the hotel which offer private and secure accommodation for you. As you used a third-party booking agency your booking was based upon a room only rate and yes, each cooked to order breakfast item and drinks are priced separately so I am sorry that you feel that this was possibly misleading for you. One of the advantages of booking with us direct is that we can offer a better room rate and we include a Continental buffet for you as well so, it would be great to talk to you direct when you need to make your next booking. As I mentioned your comments have been taken on board and will be discussed with the team here.

First impressions count, and the welcome we had from Annie was very friendly, - a naturally warm and caring waitress that was maintained throughout. Annie is a natural who enhanced our lunch visit by her warmth, care and attentiveness, that was just at the right level of good

I've had two week-long stays at Mannings recently - visiting Truro for work. Both stays were excellent. My room (40) was a fairly basic double but it was warm and comfortable, the water was always hot and the bed is the most comfortable I've ever slept in at any hotel, anywhere.

Hello John C Yes, we deserve a whirl!! It's wonderful to hear from our repeat guests as they really help us when they write a review about their stay as it gives new guests a great idea of what to expect. We are the perfect location as we are located in the heart of the city and with the secure, gated car park it's a great base to either work from or explore Truro as you mention. We do offer a variety rooms from your cosy double up to our award winning 4 Star Apartments so we have something to suit all budgets. Our restaurant is extremely popular with our local community and yes, at this time of the year we are in the full swing of the party mode so, do and try and make a reservation if you can throughout December. Our daily room rates do include a Continental buffet but as you mention we offer a wide variety of fresh cooked to order breakfasts and Gidgeon our breakfast chef makes an amazing bacon butty!! We are extremely proud of the entire team so thank you for such a thorough review. We will have room 40 waiting for you on your next visit.

Is there free parking
Hello Elizabeth our daily car parking fee is £6.00 per day. This does entitle you to leave your car in the car park after you have checked out if you are working in town. I would mention though that on some of our offers we do offer free car parking.
