We stayed here for two nights as it is handy for hospital visiting. We had a toddler with us and this caused no problems. The staff were wonderful, the hotel staff were great. The rooms are large and modern with excellent sound-proofed glazing - it is adjacent to one of the main roads into Truro. We had good breakfasts in... More

I booked this hotel for an overnight stay whilst attending the Hall for Cornwall. It is located within a reasonable walking distance of Truro Town centre. The room was very large and extremely comfortable. Friendly staff, large car park.
