“Great Experience”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Stayed at this hotel/bar restaurant for 2 nights. The hotel is only a couple of years old and has been extended on to the existing restaurant.
The rooms were spotlessly clean, large and come with free WiFi (I only ever book hotels now that do this)
The best part were the staff, in particularly in the restaurant. They could see that I was on my own on what were very busy Friday and Saturday nights and they made sure I was looked after. It's always very easy to complain about service given but all of them were a credit to the management.
The Cornish breakfast was probably one of the best breakfasts I have eaten. On the evening I ordered battered fish and chips and whilst I wasn't expecting it to be totally fresh, it was a bit of a shock to see it come out to the table about 2 minutes after I ordered it! It tasted fine but sometimes, it pays to have a bit of a delay to at least give the illusion that it was indeed fresh. A minor point but worth relaying
I may have to come back down to Truro in the coming month or so and will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: Try and get the back of the hotel where the views are spectacular

We stayed for 1 evening and have to say the staff couldn't do enough for us. The receptionist was really helpful, showed us our room and then when there was a noise we were unsure of she moved us and upgraded us without any hesitation. The rooms were clean, modern and lovely and the views were great too. I would certainly recommend this hotel for value for money, perfect for our 1 night stay in Truro.

I stayed here for 5 nights on a business trip and it certainly was above and beyond expectations. Very clean and comfortable rooms, the cleaners did a great job each day! The receptionist was lovely, there was a power outage (by no fault of the hotel) one morning whilst I was getting ready and they refunded my room service for this inconvenience. The restaurant is also fantastic, really enjoyed the pub quiz on Sunday night and the food was great value for money and delicious! If I had to say one negative thing it would be that the walls are quite thin so you can sometimes hear the other guests- however this was rarely a problem.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that doesn't have an adjoining door as you can hear your neighbours through th...

I spent two nights here and ate both evenings in the restaurant. The reception staff were particularly pleasant and couldn't do enough. The room was very well appointed for business purposes (free wifi) and plenty of power points. Very good bed. No complaints whatsoever. The restaurant staff were attentive and the food was as I like it - plenty and tasty! Breakfast was equally good. Recommended for business and I would take the family for a central location on a Cornish holiday. Pricing acceptable.

From the minute I walked in I was pleased with my choice! Friendly staff, superbly clean hotel throughout... Just great! I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to stay here. I like it! The menu is all reasonably priced and there is a decent choice. Plus they will bring it to your room which is great if you are a lone person and don't want to go to the bar. Plus there is free wi-fi - Always a bonus!

Stayed in the County Arms for 3 weeks whilst down working in Truro on business. Staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble, and they are happy to send food up to your room which is brilliant when dining alone. Breakfast is great with everything on offer.

Ate the restaurant on a number of occasions. Typical hearty pub fare but all in all was good with no problems. Would highly recommend.

This is a fantastic place. I normally stay in town but decided to stay here as had heard good things. The rooms are all recently decorated. i had a superior room which was very large, clean and very nice bathroom. But what definetly guve sit a 5/5 rating are the staff who are very polite, helpful and just nice. At one stage i thought it was a family hotel as they were so friendly. Breakfast was very good. The restaurant was busy and it serves traditional pub food. Not my type of food. I didn't eat there as i was meeting friends in Town. Truro Town centre by taxi costs £3.90 but i didn't mind this as the rooms are much cheaper than in town. The feedback from colleagues is that the food is very good. One other thing to mention is that the rooms are quite - no seagulls or church bells , which is common if you stay in town.

Room Tip: Get a superior room towards the back of the hotel -
