“Absolutely fantastic guesthouse!!”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

I stayed at the guesthouse for 5 nights whilst I carried out a placement at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. Being 21 years of age and so far away from home it was quite a scary experience for me, however Ann was extremely welcoming upon arrival, she explained everything there was about Truro, where i could find food, nearest bus stop etc and made sure I was happy. The room I was in was a twin room; I cannot fault the room at all, plenty of lighting (For those that may want to study) a wash basin, tea making facilities, there is nothing more you could ask for really; I was also impressed at the fact that although the guest house felt more like a home, Ann was extremely professional and respected my privacy (knocking to come in) and was always present if I had any questions. Breakfast was extremely pleasant, I only had cereal however the very large full english breakfast looked perfect (for those that like to start off the day with a big meal). Ann is extremely generous and really does put her all in to make sure you are happy. I will most definitely stay here again if I am every in the area; as Ann's saying goes "come as a stranger, leave as a friend"; you only have to visit yourself to find this out.

Very handy location, hearty breakfast, special gold star to the landlady, who was extremely helpful and without whose excellent advice we would have been forced to choose between watching the olympic torch, catching our intended train, and a hot cornish pasty lunch.

Ann T, Owner at The Bay Tree Guest House, responded to this review, May 4, 2013
It was lovely to sit with you having your breakfast which you devoured every morsel of on your plate. This was whilst holding a conversation with me informing me that you had had a lovely stay and that you enjoyed yourself. You also informed me that a that point you were using your telephone to upload a positive trip advisor review. Enough said. Many thanks Ann xxx

Enough said above really, however I was made to feel uncomfortable on a number of occasions. As someone who uses hotels and guesthouses regularly and who has worked extensively in the hospitality trade I was less than impressed with how I was treated. Worst was landlady letting herself into my room without knocking when I was getting ready to leave and happened to be totally naked. She doesn't take cards so I said id go get cash from the bank and leave my bags till I returned with payment but she threw me out like a criminal. All in all, out of the fifty or so b & bs I stayed at last year, this stands out as the worst experience.

My brother and I visited the Baytree Guesthouse as we were in Truro for our neice's wedding. I found Ann to be very welcoming and friendly and the twin room my brother and i shared was very comfortable. There was plenty of choice on the breakfast menu which was very enjoyable. Ann was a bit organisational but as this was my first visit to Truro, I found this to be very helpful as Ann is a fountain of knowledge in all things Cornish and prevented us from making mistakes and running into problems that we would have had otherwise.
I would definitely recommend the Baytree very highly and would certainly especially recommend it to those who are visiting Truro for the first time or after a period of absence.

Room Tip: Ann will provide you with the best room to sut your needs.

There is only one bathroom for four bedrooms, but it was always available and clean, and there are vanity units in the rooms. This is an ideal place for anyone who enjoys company as Ann, the owner, chats with you for ages and she introduces the other guests - breakfast was great not only for the food, but for the company and conversation. We will definitely try here first if we come back to Truro!
