We enjoyed our stay for 2 nights. After a first night of no sleep due to our room overlooking the busy A30 with heavy traffic, we changed to a room in the quiet courtyard. What a difference! The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was particuarly welcoming, especially Sarah in the Brasserie.

Stayed for 2 nights as I was seeing a concert in the hall for Cornwall. Check in was fast, friendly and efficient. We were in one of the courtyard rooms and it was really lovely, it is one of the best equipped hotels I have stayed in. The hotel is only a brief 5 minute walk in to the centre...

We had a mid-week break before visiting relatives in East Cornwall. We were made very welcome on arrival with complimentary tea/coffee and then shown to our Garden Room. This was a very tastefully decorated, very spacious and comfortable room with very modern bathroom with bath and separate shower. We dined in both evenings and again were made very welcome by...

We stopped in Truro for 2 days midway through a driving trip around Cornwall. We chose the Alverton based on its excellent Tripadvisor ratings and we were not disappointed. The hotel is in a historic and unusual building that started life as a convent. It's unique, beautiful & quirky at the same time with beautiful interiors & exteriors. We chose...

An opportunity to spend a couple of nights away from home and yet we live just 3 miles away! We had a room in the Courtyard and it was beautiful and the workmanship was fantastic, loved the bathroom! Very impressed. Breakfast was first class - I wish I could get my poached eggs like that. Nothing was too much trouble...
