Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I must thank Andrew, who is amazing and a credit to your hotel. And Lynn, again professional at all times. In fact all the staff. They really help me at last minute. Super comfy beds, excellent WiFi, breakfast was amazing, so much choice. Please try the Sunday lunch, large portions, amazing roast potatos, yummy, fresh deserts... It was beautiful cooked. Not much I can say really... just spot on

We stayed for two nights, the room was bijou but adequate, the staff were really helpful and pleasant. Everywhere was clean and tidy with lovely Christmas decorations. The Cornish breakfast was very good, they cater for GF by omitting the sausage and offering GF toast. A really good stay, thank you!

Stayed for 2 nights while visiting family. Warm welcome from staff. Room 4 small ish but perfectly adequate for our needs with a comfy bed and very nicely fitted bathroom. Car park across the road is always a convenient thing for a town centre hotel. Very convenient for the station and town centre. Staff very welcoming, freshly cooked food both breakfast and in the bar excellent. Will definitely visit again.

This used to be so nice but called in yesterday and it was a mess. 3 workers stood at reception desk chatting. Asked if we were in to eat or drink then left us stood at dirty bar with empty glasses and floor was sooo sticky! I don’t know what happened here but it’s gone down hill and won’t be returning. We were ignored and left again. Dirty and felt like a hostel.

Great location to visiting the edan project & surrounding beaches. ... Nice clean rooms & bar area . Friendly staff & great breakfast. Plus car park around the side of the building.. The only negative thing is the toilets around the bar area really need updating..

Bath, United Kingdom30 contributions16 helpful votes
On arrival my wife and I were greeted by a pleasant young man, once booked in he asked if we needed help with our luggage, which we declined. Our room was clean and a reasonable size, bathroom was what one would expect in an ensuite, clean and supplied with a hairdryer. Our room also had an ironing board and iron. Breakfast had a lot of choices, all the choices made for our week stay were good portions and cooked well. We ate at least four times in the evenings and each meal was cooked to perfection, I personally liked the rack of lamb, although the homemade steak and onion pie with vegetables, was the best I tasted. Overall our stay at the White Hart Hotel was a pleasant one with excellent staff and we would recommend it to anyone.

Whilst staying nearby a quick internet search indicated The White Heart was offering a varied menu. I found the bar dining area tired and in need of some TLC. There was a small lounge area but we sat at our table straight away. The important things were: 1. All the staff were totally professional, engaging and customer focussed. 2. As said the menu offered a great range of choices at very reasonable prices. 3. My food was home made, fulsome and just as I like it. Nothing left on the plate. I declined a look at the desert menu on the grounds that I would let my eyes overrule my brain. No complaints. Highly recommended.

After reading the review of this charming hotel by Clair Pain, I felt that a different perspective should be offered. It is quite true that the rooms would benefit from modernisation but the room in which my wife and I stayed, room 3, was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the water for the en suite bathroom was wonderfully hot. The food was outstanding - breakfast freshly cooked to order - and the attitude of the waiting staff could not be bettered. It is hardly surprising that there is noise from the passing traffic in the morning as ths is a town centre hotel, and is less than 5 minutes walk from the bus and railway station. The next time we visit St Austell we will have no hesitation in choosing the White Hart again.
