Have been here several times for lunch with the family and my toddler. The service is exceptional and the food to match. We never feel looked down on for having a child with us (although she is very well behaved in restaurants she is still a toddler!) Fabulous place....

As a returning visitor I was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded. The room was at the end of one of the wings of the hotel. Comfortable decor, but starting to show some wear and tear. Rather strange to only have one mug for tea, two glasses but no complimentary water. Unfortunately there are building works underway including weekend! It would...

We stayed for 7 nights to enable us to visit a friend and also enjoy some walking, etc. Our room (number 6) was advertised with ' a garden view' but unfortunately the flat roof of the dining room obscured most of the garden! However, this did not detract from a very spacious room and comfortable bed. The en-suite was modern,...

Me and my Partner booked this hotel for one night, I couldn't be happier it was just the one night. The hotel is outdated partnered with the staff being very unfriendly/unhelpful. A wedding reception was being held at the same venue so we were not a concern for the hotel. We were practically chucked our key on arrival and told...

We came and stayed at the Alverton again for our wedding anniversary. This was our 5th visit but our first since the refurbishment. The hotel was as welcoming as ever. The food in the restaurant was fantastic, I can especially recommend the steak. My only complaint (not really a complaint) was the lack of comfy seating in the bar. The...

This time we had a nice, spacious room and bathroom, Not the room...

This is class as a four star hotel so we expected a good standard for everything but it became a big disappointment to us. The room is reasonable size for me and my husband but they do not have a proper and sufficient lighting. They only have lamps which was not sufficient for us for our games of scrabbles. We...

I stayed here through a work weekend. Only for one night but I have stayed here the same weekend each year. Its the prettiest hotel I've stayed in the UK. When I checked in I was offered the help of Anthony to show me my room and to take my bag. My room was extremely spacious, a big double bed...

This is a great place to stay. Recently renovated to take full advantage with complete respect for the historical building. Great views from rooms and you feel like you are in an old castle but with perfect modern plumbing, great showers and all the amenities.

Beautiful hotel with impeccable service, but there is no lift (elevator for Americans), if several steep staircases are a problem, this may not be the place for you.My 84 year old father found the stairs somewhat challenging. Request a lower floor but there will still be steps. The staff will carry your luggage for you and are extremely helpful. Restaurant...
