Just returned from a 7day/6 night stay at The Barrowfields. Very good journey down and even better return journey (West Midlands). Arrival: Very efficient. Bags offloaded from coach and delivered to rooms within 15 minutes. Reception very quick and efficient, keys were waiting for collection. Room: Quite big and very clean. Room service was very good throughout. Down points were that some of the sealant around the shower tray needs replacing as there are signs of mould. Also some of the tile grouting needs replacing. You have to run the hot tap for approx 10/15 minutes to get hot water before you can wash or shower. We were told by reception that the water has to come all the way from the basement up to our floor (second). How long does the people on the third floor have to wait? This must waste thousands of gallons of water every week, and if the hotel is on a meter you and I are paying for that. Restaurant: A good choice of meals (you have to order dinner at breakfast). Quick and efficient. Well presented. Quite tasty. Try the fish dishes, these were superb. Bar: Again quick service, never much of a queue, pint of John Smiths bitter is £3.00, a bit on the expensive side. Entertainment: Nobody of outstanding note, all were average. Location: Reasonably good. 15 minutes walk to town centre although there is a bus stop on both sides of the road with Truro, Falmouth, Padstow etc all within easy reach. Even the local Tractor Train stops almost outside the hotel, £5 for an all day ticket (no bus passes accepted), but you can get off or on anywhere and rejoin later. Old outdated lift, broke down several times, people stuck for some time. We understand a new one is to be fitted in January. We have now been to all of Daish's hotels and this one is equal top with I.O.W. Well done to everybody.
