Plenty of free parking on site and and just a 10 minute walk to the town centre. The freshly cooked breakfast was excellent, and the complimentary tea/coffee and fresh cake each afternoon was a...

The hotel is in a great location and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to explore Cornwall! Already looking forward to returning at some point in the...

Stayed for a long weekend in April with my girlfriend and we were not disappointed! On arrival we were greeted warmly by the receptionist (Stuart) whom quickly offered us a seat in the lounge along with free tea, coffee and delicious Victoria sponge! A lovely, personal touch considering our long drive down. We had booked a king size bedroom however...

Couldn't have asked for a better Cornish retreat this weekend! Truro, or the Costa del Sol as we dubbed it due to the gorgeous weather, was brightened by the smiles of the warm and welcoming hosts at Merchant House! The omelette was so good I abandoned my summer diet and had it three times! Planning on returning again soon and...

Lovely hotel. The staff are very friendly, the breakfast was fantastic, and the room was spacious with a spectacular bed. Merchant house was a great base to see Cornwall, and the addition of afternoon tea and cake was great. Lovely Victoria sponge!

Just driving back from a weekend in Truro with a few friends. The breakfast was brilliant (make sure to book directly to get it included!), omelettes to take away and all for the drive back home. The atmosphere of the place is relaxed and friendly, it's great value for money, and staff know the area well and happy to give...
