We had a wonderful time at the Alverton. A beautiful room in the main building which was exactly as we had requested. Both the bedroom and bathroom were really spacious and spotlessly clean. Well stocked tea and coffee facilities along with a bottle of drinking water. There was even a proper hairdryer and hair straighteners unlike what other hotels provide....

Small group of friends for lunch. Excellent service friendly staff. Good food served hot on hot plates. Able to relax and chat after the meal in comfortable surroundings. Most enjoyable will be returning.

We stayed at the Alverton while visiting family in Cornwall. The Alverton is a lovely, old hotel within walking distance of the city centre and shops. We were lucky to be upgraded to a large room with garden view and a massive double bed, lounge area and recently modernised bathroom. Reception staff were friendly and helpful, and the bar and...

This historic hotel has been tastefully modernized - making it a special place to stay and escape the ordinary. A former convent, the hotel is set in a tranquil setting, close to city center but set back enough to escape the traffic noise. The staff were attentive and met our special needs - friendly, professional.

I took my 5 year old daughter to Truro for a girls shopping trip in the Summer. The staff are friendly, helpful, informative and went out of their way to make my daughter and I feel special.

Arriving at The Alverton is a great experience as the exterior is impressive, the winding driveway maximises the visual impact of the building so it feels special.
