The Alverton is a very high class hotel in the Cathedral city of Truro and so is well placed if you're visiting the West Country. Not far from Falmouth, it's the sister hotel of Green Banks in Falmouth which is lovely. Booked here last minute due to a sudden trip and I was delighted with my impulsive choice. The building...

Before I comment on my stay at The Alverton, being only 17 years old i'm very happy I wasn't paying for this...... I feel The Alverton is a really interesting hotel! Beautiful grounds SOME very helpful staff and interesting décor. Having watched many episodes of The Hotel Inspector one has acquired a taste for critiquing. However I felt the good...

Stayed in courtyard rooms that were lovely. Staff were helpful, knowledgeable and well trained. Food was good. Only one thing is the menus could change slightly each night. Restaurant staff were very busy but kept us informed at all times of the progress of our food. A lovely hotel in a lovely setting and central position.

They spoiled us by giving us the bridal suite. The mattress was a bit suspect and the room took some heating; the bathroom, brand new and lovely, but a bit cool the morning after: it's where you understand that management do what they can to keep the heating bill down in a large place like that. The house and the...

We stayed two nights for business. The hotel is well placed and within walking distance of the centre of town and other local restaurants although we did eat one night at the brasserie and we had a really good dinner. There was a problem with the heating in the room on our first night but the hotel staff handled it...

Dear timb4yth, Thank you for your feedback - naturally I am sorry to read your review.

The grounds were looking lovely with spring bulbs and really pretty. The building seemed clean and well maintained and my room was decorated completely in keeping with the age of the building. Too many standing lights and fridge and not enough sockets made it tricky to plug in a laptop and work...and have light.. The bed was really comfortable. We...
