Stayed for 2 nights whilst working in Truro. The staff were extremely welcoming and went out of their way to tell me that there was an unexpected cancellation when the hotel was formerly fully booked. The rooms are clean,the linen crisp and if you are looking for a place to lay your head and perhaps do a bit of work in your room then the Carlton will fit the bill. If you are expecting to stay around the hotel for extended periods then you might like to think again. The hotel is somewhat dated and in need of a makeover. The carpet throughout the public rooms and staircases is a masterpiece of 70's multi coloured swirl. The lounge and bar is devoid of atmosphere but the wood panelled dining room area (with the aforementioned carpet and matching textured ceiling ) is supremely ghastly which is a shame as the breakfast served there was not at all bad. In summary the Carlton is just fine for a bed and breakfast but if you are hoping for something special then you might like to think again.
