“Great little hotel & pub ideally located in the town centre.”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

This is a good hotel, bar & restaurant with nice rooms and friendly staff. The hotel has parking and due to the layout of St Austell it can be a little tricky to find. The pub sells the locally brewed beer and the breakfast was very good.

I really had to write to say what a fantastic welcome after a long drive,and tremendous hospitality.
We had help with our luggage up the stairs and a great bonus in the busy streets of St Austell was the existence of their own car park.
The bed was the softest I have slept in all week,and room service when we requested an iron and sandwiches was excellent.
The room was fresh,clean and comfortable,and the breakfast was very nice.
I will recommend this to anyone !
My only negative would be the very winding staircase,but hey,this is an old,charming place recently refurbished and that's the way it is.Staff took care of all our luggage.

If you are visiting Cornwall this is a nice, cosy, historical hotel to stay.
I stayed with friends and booked a room that accommodated very comfortably three adults, with a big bathroom, tv, storage space and also quality toiletries.
The restaurant is also really good and with an excellent service.

This was a last minute booking and we were met by very friendly, cheery, helpful staff. The room was adequate although the view was unfortunately that of another building in close proximity! The room was exceptionally, uncomfortably hot at night! We ate in the restaurant and my medium, rare steak was all but inedible. However, I was offered a complimentary dessert but, really, the meal should have been taken off the bill. I didn't challenge this as the waitress was so very helpful. The breakfast however was delicious, eggs benedict, the poached eggs were perfect. Sadly, I wouldn't stay here again but it definitely didn't spoil our weekend.

Stayed over night, midweek on business. Initial reaction was this was going to be a nice little hotel and to be fair was generally ok. However, the room was up 2 flights of narrow stairs, no lift and no offer of help with heavy suitcases. The rooms was smaller than the photos indicated and the bathroom was in need of some upgrade. Little atmosphere in the bar, dinner was average but, the breakfast was very good. Staff were pleasant but, could have been a bit friendlier. Have stayed in a lot of hotels around the country and this was average for the price.

I turned up in St Austell out of the blue and needed somwehere to stay, coming in from the street. I was lucky to find a room free here at the White Hart which is very well placed in the centre of St Austell.. I paid £75 for one night for a double room (their singles when free, which I did not see are only five pounds cheaper. Along with many other hotels they do not provide well for the single traveller in this respect) The room I had was big enough for one, though for two it would have been rather a tight fit. Generally the room was quite well furbished, comfortable bed though the wardrobe was huge though strangely there was no drawers for clothes. The TV worked okay though had a very strange wall attachment, and gave the impression it might fall off though it was probably quite secure. The ensuite was bigger than many you find and had a bath as well as an overhead shower which worked well. Other travellers have complained about noise, I heard no disturbance which was probably due to my room (room no 13) being on the side of the hotel facing the side which is not direct to the street. I was on the second floor and as there is no lift it is a bit of a pain getting one's luggage up, especially as the layout of the hotel is rather all over the place. What makes the hotel in my opinion is the ground floor which has a pleasant bar and lounge area, where I found it easy to relax and enjoy a drink while I was doing some work. The staff are generally very friendly and helpful and were kind in agreeing to extend my check out time from 10am to 11am which made my morning more relaxed. The breakfast has the potential to be good there is a good selection of choice including super looking pancakes and , but mine was slightly marred as they got my order wrong. The staff seemed very disorganised. It would be nice to have a pot of coffee instead of just a measly cup which can take ages to get a refill. It would also be good to have a menu which made it clear that residents are not expected to pay the prices on it!!!! There is a restaurant serving food throughout the day but I decided not to eat my evening meal there as the prices seemed a bit on the steep side and I was put off by the empty dining room. The carpark for the hotel is over the other side of the road and one has to cross a main road to get there which can be a right pain if carrying a lot of luggage. The manager did agree to help me when I was leaving, but he appeared to do this without any enthusiasm and made no goodbyes or wishing me a good journey. A pity as the rest of the staff seemed to have a nice attitude

Such a pity has the potential to be a really nice hotel.
Rooms are nice very clean. Great location
Food. The crab cakes although were very nicely presented were not fresh we told the waitress, and she brought a some more which were exactly the same we told her, but was not offered anything else even our salad was removed with the first plate and not replaced. I did not want to make a fuss so paid and didn't eat there again.
Mentioned to the Manager on the 3rd day .
Stayed for 3 nights with no Wifi at all during that time, asked everyday but was told something different each time. The manager was there on the 3rd day with no apology said that it had been like that for a while. No good if you picked the hotel on that basis.
