This place was chosen for an overnight visit, and was fine for that. I'd quite happily stay here for a mini-break too. The price was very reasonable when I visited (below Premier Inn prices), but I see it is now more expensive than the price I paid. Much as I enjoyed it, I wouldn't pay much more than I would to stay at a Premier Inn, which this hotel felt rather like (albeit one of the better Premier Inns). However, at the same price, I would happily stay here again and it would be my first choice in Truro.
PROS: Clean, neatly-decorated, large bedroom with plenty of room to swing an elephant. Incredibly comfortable bed. Very clean and pleasant bathroom. Fast, free wi-fi. Keenly priced (when I visited). Excellent sound-proofing in room. Efficient air conditioning and heating. Eco-friendly hotel which gathers water for flushing the loo from the roof. Spacious, free car parking. New hotel, and all very pleasant.
NEUTRAL: 15 minutes' walk into the city centre, and all uphill on the return journey.
CONS: Nobody at reception when I arrived, and no sign saying when they would return. After 10 minutes' wait, I had to go off to search for somebody. Attached pub/restaurant is keenly priced for food (though more expensive for drinks), serves very large portions, but the quality of food isn't good and, after a poor evening meal, I decided not to try breakfast. The pub was surprisingly full, though; I guess a lot of people like to fill up on cheap food even if the quality isn't good.
SUMMARY: Great place to stay for a comfortable night's sleep in pleasant surroundings. Probably best to go into the city to eat, though.
