My sister recently held her wedding breakfast/reception at the hotel and I was really impressed with the venue. The grand hall was beautiful and the grounds were gorgeous. The food was really tasty and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We stayed at the hotel that evening and the rooms were lovely, a huge bed and the decoration had the right mix of modern and vintage. The breakfast in the morning is one of the best I've had a hotel. The rooms were also reasonable value. Would definitely recommend it as both a wedding venue and a place to stay!

The Alverton, Truro. Built around 1880, this property was a convent, since turned into a country homestead. Set in pleasant wooded land, you take a step back into the past with attractive stone walls, towers and turrets. We receive a friendly welcome from Jasmine at reception, and in fact drop our bags off early. We come in past the Great Hall - this is obviously a castle! Access to our first floor room is via a suitably hidden and mysterious narrow staircase. The room is large and comfortable with ample lighting and power points, TV, tea and coffee making, wardrobe, desk, easy chair, and large bed. There is free wifi. The walls and ceiling are not completely sound proof, but in fact this causes no problem for us and we have an excellent night's sleep. This room does have a problem with a banging door though ... . The adjoining en suite is enormous with white tiling floor to ceiling, large basin, separate shower, giant sized bath, WC, and one of those strange basins for washing your feet - no I'm kidding about the feet! Plenty of hot water in the shower. We have breakfast downstairs in the lovely large breakfast room - all in grand style - with a fine range of buffet choices and good cooked mains to follow. I do wonder whether there was a missed opportunity with the bedroom: given the castle-like setting, perhaps the rooms might be themed? Something of the castle? the convent? Olde England? a coat of arms? Nothing expensive - just a bit of creativity! This is a lovely place to stay, and quite handy to the city.

Enjoyed a 1 night stay at the Alverton to attend a function and really could not fault any part of it. The bedroom had been tastefully modernized but still retain the character and original features of the building which is fantastic

Had a very nice freshly cooked breakfast before departure in the Restaurant which is very pleasant

Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this Hotel, its location is perfect for visiting Truro and Cornwall as a whole

Had an overnight stay here on May 22 and had a comfortable stay. The hotel has a lovely outer look to it and is equally attractive inside. The receptionist who booked us in was polite, cheerful, and attentive. I had the ravioli with garlic bread as a room service dinner (I was kindly accommodated despite phoning down just after the restaurant had closed) and the meal was superbly presented and tasty. Equally breakfast the next morning was lovely with me enjoying some cereal and kippers to follow. I did enjoy a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed and the en suite bathroom was well equipped although the bath was not quite long enough and I am an average Joe at 5 foot 9. All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel hitch catered brilliantly for my needs.

A Big thankyou to the Alverton and their staff, in particular conference organiser Larissa Geach who hosted a superb conference for us in May! Seamless, fantastic food, the setting of the great hall and unlimited help from a team that could not do enough to make sure our event ran smoothly.
Thanks so much and see you again next year!!

I spent one night here on business and it was spot on in every way. The check in was seamless and only took moments, the room was lovely and the hotel environment all I could ask for. Location is great to as it was only an easy 5 minute walk into the town, and all it had to offer. If only I had the time to look around.
The staff were lovely and I could tell everyone was made to feel important.
If you love hotels with a bit of character, great gardens and good service this is one not to miss.

An event in the Alverton's Great Hall brought us here for a two-night stay in the hotel.

The venue was absolutely perfect, its vaulted ceiling creating a stunning setting for our event. Larissa could not have been more helpful in making all the arrangements, with Tony and his colleagues looking after us very attentively on the day. It's a fabulous venue at a very competitive price - highly recommended.

The hotel stay was an added bonus - rooms tastefully decorated with huge comfy beds and every comfort you'd expect. We ate in the restaurant and had a fabulous meal; again, staff in the bar and restaurant were courteous and efficient.

A 10-minute stroll into a very sunny Truro made this a memorable stay.

Highly recommended, both as a hotel and a conference venue.
