The hotel rooms are well facilitated for the price, clean and with helpful staff. TV, Kettle, tea coffee, but no Decaff. Visited during the COVID pandemic meant Resteraunt shut, but the staff were helpful pointing me in the direction of takeaways that delivered. The free WIFI was an absolute joke, slower than old school dial up it was virtually unworkable, even giving a spinning wheel to Facebook. Obviously they offered faster if you paid £5 per day, but they did not offer packages for weekly stays.

Hotel's Favourite
Short break as our only getaway this year for my wife's birthday. The location was brilliant and over looked RNAS Culdrose. Parking was free and ample. Quick trip into town or to the local supermarkets if required. Also only a short hop to Porthleven. All reception staff very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Covid restrictions not intrusive and easy to adapt to. Didn't hear anyone in the next door rooms for a change. The Maytree over the road wasn't amazing and was very understaffed for the circumstances but that's not the hotel's fault. The only negative was the wifi. It is useless. The premium wifi also dropped out for 3 hrs so not worth the money. As soon as you leave the hotel walls you get 4g but nothing inside. They must have placed an iron curtain over the place when they built it. Wasn't a deal breaker as it's nice to put the phones away but was impossible to distract the toddler in the evenings with the ipad. That aside it was probably the nicest premier inn we've stayed in and will visit again.

My partner and I needed somewhere to stay as we were viewing properties the next day and we didn't fancy waking up at 4am to get there in time. The room looked very however the bed was incredibly uncomfortable and we only had 1 pillow in each. We checked in just after 11.30pm and we had just done a nearly 5hrs drive. We just wanted to sleep, we were exhausted so we didn't go and complain at reception as we needed to get to sleep.

I’ve stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions, usually visiting relatives for Christmas, it’s always been a great value, super venue, and that has not changed. But I guess the commercial ravages of 2020 have taken their toll on the hospitality businesses. I stayed on Christmas night. They were happy to check me in at 11.00am in the morning, not the usual 2pm advice. Screens at reception, sanitiser freely available, one way system in and out. No free sweets on the reception desk? Sign of the times. Let me say that the sleep experience is still the same, brilliant beds and cosy bedding, but I did notice some paring back of the experience. Only two sachets of coffee in the room, there used to be a whole handful, (although I think if you ask at reception, they will provide more) additional pillows, which I loved, have been removed, the character sofa has gone, replaced by a single chair. I only stayed one night, but I imagine if one stayed for longer, don’t expect room cleaning. I wouldn’t. The pub next door was however still open, The May Tree, Cornwall moving into Tier 2 from Boxing Day, they were over 2/3rds down on Christmas Day bookings vs LY. I was in Room 110, which is at the front of the hotel overlooking the car park. When I got back to my room mid evening on Christmas Day, there were just 9 cars in the car park, 1 was mine. How depressing. The pub was shut. No noise issues then! But, they keep great standards, still plenty of plug points, the heating system kicked in to make it cosy after about 1/2 hour, easy to operate, and the cleanliness of the room and bathroom were great. Free view telly channels all where they should be, but maybe a battery change in the remote control is about due in this room. And the free Wi-fi drops in and out regularly, it’s a low data service, don’t expect to transact anymore that a few calls and texts. I wouldn’t expect to have to upgrade to a Premium paid Wi-fi these days. Just a little more soulless than a normal stay... I am really hoping that Premier Inn as a (Whitbread?) group, who I know are looking for rent relief from the Government/property landlords, I do hope they get what they need to keep going. Breakfast was available at the May Tree, needed to be booked. £8.95 pp I think, I was heading back to my rellies, but a chocolate bar (new resolutions don’t kick in until 1.1.21) from the vending machine in reception did the job in the meantime. I now live in Cornwall, yes, great plan of mine to move house in a pandemic year, with the worst December weather ever 🤨 But I worry about all the other amazing Premier Inns in lockdown Tiers, who can’t open, or can’t make it economically viable to open. I am hoping to post another review for The Premier Inn, Helston, this time next year. Hoping that they, and all of us, have a better 2021. Sandy

A fairly new Premier Inn in an excellent location on the road outside Helston. It meant that over our 3 night break we were able easily to visit places in the area. Dare we admit we never actually went into Helston itself! We didn’t mind there being no daily housekeeping service due to COVID. It meant on one morning we could have a lie-in without fear of being disturbed. We were able to get extra tea, coffee and milk from reception. We were very impressed by food and service at the attached pub. Breakfast was enormous!
