“Really good service !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

The Donnington accommodated us when we were let down at short notice by another hotel (Cliftons) The rooms were clean and comfortable (though our twin beds squeaked when we sat down or turned over). The showers were excellent ! Breakfast was good. The hotel staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The hotel is very convenient to County Hall, and the railway station.

Thanks to darragh and the staff for making working down in Truro a much less stressful affair. We have stayed as a business on and for the past mth whilst working at the hospital and were sad on the nights they were full and had to stay elsewhere. , If we are ever down that way again we will make sure we are staying at the Doddington.Rooms were clean and spacious. Thanks Paul @ PD Access Flooring

I stayed at the Donnington in January, the room was great value for money, it was clean, comfortable and warm. I would definately stay here again. The breakfast was delicious and the owners were so accomodating. If you are staying in Truro to enjoy the city or just need a place to stay to explore Cornwall, I would highly recommend the Donnington.

Book this guest house thurs till sun, no where near the town so quite a walk especially walking back from town as it is all hill. clean room but could be better, a lot of dust if look closer at things. had a family room my son had bunk beds could not sleep at top as no bed guard so no good for small child, also bunk bed need fixing very rocky. fridge in room which is good. on ground floor so no stairs but if disabled do ask for ground floor as a lot of stairs. room cleaned every day with fresh towels. not happy with breakfast, you had to help your self like make your own tea and coffee, make your own toast, breakfast very small, had to sit on a table of eight with other people. price was ok £175 for 3 people, 3 nights.

Room Tip: ok b&b but not in town.

Simple but adequate accommodation, clean and reasonably comfortable, though some of the furnishings were in need of repair or replacement.
Good location, about 15 minutes walk from railway station (10 minutes back - downhill), 20 minutes from city centre.
Friendly staff, excellent breakfast.

We had a fantastic stay at the Donnington - the family room we were given was spacious with the added bonus of a good sized fridge in the room - perfect for storing picnic food for our beach days. The kids loved the bunk beds and we liked the added peace an hour of CBeebies gave us in the morning. The breakfasts were great too. We can't wait to go back.
