Weather very warm and sunny so we dined outside. The staff were very attentive and polite, the grounds and externals very pretty and characterful. The lunch we had was OK and despite that there were 11 of us, all served at the same time (except one order that had been forgotten. My starter was fig and goat cheese and had...

Hi there davideastwood15, Thank you for your recent review of The Alverton. I’m really pleased to read that the service you received whilst with us was good and that you enjoyed the terrace and the beautiful building.

Givint this 4 out of 5 as I don't want one person to spoil the good work of the rest of the staff at the hotel. I booked a room at the The Alverton as a 20th Anniversary treat – staying one night. I'd first like to say I would recommend the hotel overall. The room we stayed in was...

Hello there, Thank you for taking the time to review The Alverton.

Just had the pleasure of returning from a mini Cornwall break to The Alverton in Truro for three nights. Wow! What a place to stay. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly and welcoming lady on the desk (regret not getting her name!) and had the lovely surprise of an upgrade to a junior suite in their new...

Hello there, Thank you for taking the time to review The Alverton and our new rooms in The Courtyard. We opened The Courtyard just over a month ago and it is still very new.

I had the pleasure of staying at this fine Hotel last month, it is spacious and has a great 'feel' about it, the room was very nice, and to be honest, I cannot think of anything bad to say about my visit.

Stayed here for one night with work. I was lucky to be allocated one of the new rooms in the courtyard - it was lovely, clean, comfortable and very well appointed. The only downside was that my stay was so brief I didn't get to fully utilise the lovely copper bath! Breakfast served from 7am and was good.
