The hotel is situated in its own immaculately maintained grounds on the North side of the A390 dual-carriage approach to the centre if Truro. If arriving by car from the East, it is necessary to continue to the roundabout to return on the other side of the road to gain access. There is a large car park including the original walled-garden area. The whole site is on quite a steep hill.
The new owners refurbished the whole building over the summer (with guests in situ), which has resulted in the hotel being upgraded from 3* to 4* in some ratings. There are a variety of room types from singles to expensive suites. The refurbishment has not left enough wardrobe space to hang clothes for more than a couple of nights: it is clearly geared up for shorter visits, not least because of the fairly steep room rates on which no discounts are offered for longer stays.
There is now a very comprehensive wine list, but not such a large menu which does not change (other than for the "soup of the day" and the "fish of the day"). The dishes vary in quality, even from day to day (depending on the chef) but are generally good and very well presented.
The staff are friendly and helpful.
Unless one is an early riser, the rooms overlooking the Reception are best avoided as the daily deliveries and refuse trucks start arriving from around 5:30am and are quite noisy!
