I stayed just one night at this hotel (as had already planned to move on the next day) and had mixed feelings. Would maybe try it again to give it a second chance and make a final decision, as it has its good points:
Very friendly and helpful staff, who gave a great welcome at Reception; offered help with luggage
Ample parking space;
Great location, between A390 and town centre - about a 10-15 minute walk along Falmouth Rd and Lemon St to reach the cathedral and town centre area.
Good room facilities with wi-fi; tea/coffee making etc
Tea and cake available in reception area in afternoon (I didn't try this - but it's a nice touch)
Room decoration was rather strange, with wallpaper torn in places and not done properly behind radiators - to be fair this did not really affect my stay but it gave a strange impression
Breakfast was not as good as the standard usually found in a B&B
