A wide range of meals are offered at this pub which has a very pleasant atmosphere. The waiting and bar staff are very friendly and polite. . Most evenings have special deals on selected meals. In summer the veranda offers great views over the local countryside.

When I heard it referred to as a motel, I was worried. I needn't have been. We were on a touring holiday which involved overnight stays in 7 hotels and this was by far the best. The room was huge and beautifully furnished. The accessories and the toiletries were by Orla Keily which gives an idea of the standards. We...

Like other reviewers we booked a room because of the proximity to Royal Cornwall Hospital and we didn't expect too much. The receptionists were always friendly and helpful, even prepared to accommodate a last minute booking for our poorly relative if it should prove necessary. Our bedroom was quiet (even when the bar downstairs was busy), spacious, airy and spotlessly...

Visiting my poorly father in hospital, and stayed at County Arms, whilst waiting on emergency surgery.

Lovely hotel perfect for a nights stay when travelling for work.
