Tricky's Hotel

Reviewed 7 May 2013

Lvely stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were a little small but comfortable with a lovely comfy bed. The bathroom was a disapointment as there was no bath, and the shower was of the wetroom variety (not keen on paddling to the loo after hubby has had a shower).
The food was very nice, but a limited selection for vegetarians. Breakfast wasour main disappointment. The fried breakfast wasn't the best. My husband had smokedbacon on day 1 and wasn't asked if he liked this My toast tastdofte smoked bacon (not pleasant for a veggie). Day 2 was better for the cooked breakfast, but my scrambled eggs were burnt, and it was some time before they were replaced ith fresh eggs.
A most enjoyable visit, but a shame about the breakfasts.Our visit was for our niece's wedding and the food at the reception was good, and it was a lovely atmosphere to celebrate and to catch p withfamily and friends.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on trip advisor - we are pleased that you enjoyed most aspects of your stay.
I'm sorry about the bathroom but we do clearly state on all the booking information that we have en-suite wet rooms so we do not feel that we have misled anyone. Bath mats are provided in each room which if used would solve the paddling problem!
Our breakfast, which is included in the room charge gives a choice of cereals, toast and preserves, full english, fruit, yoghurts, hot beverages. The only items that are not suitable for a vegetarian would be the bacon and the sausages, we apologise if you found this selection restrictive. Toast is cooked on a pass through toaster by our customers so not really sure how this would taste of anything other than toast. Sadly I'm not aware of any establishments that offer a choice of bacon.
We are really pleased that you enjoyed the wedding, the Garden room is a great, modern room and looks stunning when laid out.

Booked into double room for three night stay. We have a dog, who I may add, was made most welcome. There was somewhere for him to have a short run and even a toilet stop. Tricky's could improve this if a dog bin was provided near by, but having said this. it did not pose too much of a problem. Enough about the dog. Our room was clean and towels changed every day. Bed comfortable and area quite, therefore achieved very good nights sleep. We were made most welcome by, staff who were friendly and helpful. Received a good breakfast and the pub restaurant had good atmosphere, generous portions, which was good value for money. All round very good and enjoyable weekend, which I feel was very good value for money. Just like to add it is within walking distance to Redruth, however if returning in the dark would suggest a touch as lane is dark.

Thank you for posting a review on trip advisor and for your positive comments which we will pass on to our team.
We are glad that you and the dog enjoyed the stay. We do have a bin as suggested but have tucked it away discreetly but should have told you where!
We hope to see you again soon.

Tricky’s is not the sort of place I would normally choose to stay at, but I was in the area for two days on business and this was very convenient for an overnight stop.

Chatting to the lovely lady on reception, I discovered that the hotel changed hands at the end of last year which I assume accounts for the great improvement in recent Trip Advisor reviews!

My room was big (it was classed as a family room) and the bed probably the most comfortable I have ever slept in, other than my own! The wet room-style shower worked well and the whole place was clean and well presented. Views were boring (area of grass), but it was surprisingly quiet.

The restaurant is big, this place obviously caters for a lot of parties - and the food was good pub-style, with generous portions. I had fish and chips that was fresh and good. Staff were bustly and efficient and friendly.

I slept well and, had one of my neighbours not had a work colleague hammering on his door at about 5am telling him he was late and to get up with all speed (although, sadly, not in quite those words!) I would have enjoyed an uninterrupted night’s sleep.

The breakfast room was amazing - high-ceilinged and light and must be a great venue for weddings etc. The breakfast itself was fine, if unremarkable.

Tricky’s lacks charm and is nothing to look at, being a rather odd collection of buildings in the middle of nowhere, but it’s extremely convenient. The beds are wonderful, the food is good and the staff are efficient and friendly. So while you can’t have everything, you can have quite a lot of the things that really matter.

Room Tip: Ask for one 'at the back' as this was very quiet.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on trip advisor and for the broadly positive comments you have made.
Lots of investment has been made since we purchased the complex in November 2012 and their is lots more to come - we have started with refurbishing the inside areas and will gradually turn our attention to making the entire grounds work. The advantage f having a collection of buildings as you put it is just how quiet this makes the site!
We are glad you liked the new beds, everyone is saying how comfortable they are!
We hope to welcome you back soon when you are next on business in our area.

Has to book double room for 1 night at short notice to attend funeral. On arrival met by a very helpful receptionist. Room excellent, facilities very good. Asked if we could take mattress home so comfortable. Food in Main restaurant was very good. Have eaten here before and still fond the staff polite, friendly, and always had time to look after their visitors. Would recommend this hotel/restaurant to anyone. Do not understand the negative comments I have read. Must be the new management. Outside3 could do with a lick of paint.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on trip advisor and for your positive comments. The beds were all replaced in spring 2013 and everyone is saying what a huge improvement they are, this, along with the new TV's, curtains etc and newly redecorated rooms and public areas has made a real difference.
Our aim is to provide good value for money with no hidden extra charges and it is nice to know we are heading in the right direction.
We hope to welcome you back soon.

Due to some of the previous comments, I was apprehensive about Tricky's. Upon arrival, the outside is a little run-down, but we were welcomed warmly at reception. We had two rooms, One double and one twin, which were both nice, the beds quite comfortable - and overall very clean. The breakfast was also nice, and the Garden Room is lovely. There maybe could have been a bit more choice, but understandably as a small hotel, they wouldn't want anything to go to waste.
Overall, looks can be deceiving and was a nice hotel for a few nights.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on trip advisor and for your positive comments. We purchased the property in November 2012 from administration and have invested heavily since. The differences are now becoming very noticeable as is born out by the majority of recent reviews. I'm sure if you return you will see even more of the improvements.
We do aim to provide good value for money in the 'Lodge' sector of the market, hence we include breakfast, WIFI, gym usage in our tariff unlike the national chains who all charge these as extras!
Our breakfast choice includes cereals, full english, toast, preserves, fruit, yoghurt and hot beverages - so we hope there is something for everyone!

I was looking for somewhere to stay for a couple of nights when visiting Cornwall on business. I'm a Westcountry guy and was looking forward to mixing business with pleasure.
Despite first appearances I had great stays there!
Friendly staff, really helpful, a comfortable room, free gym (I'm too old for that malarky!), a good pub/restaurant with food and drink at sensible prices. There was a great choice of specials in the restaurant and a good normal menu.
In both the hotel reception and bar/restaurant the staff could not have been nicer.Lovely people.
Breakfast was included in my booking price and was served in a very lovely wedding reception room. It was a full range breakfast. Very enjoyable.
If I had to be picky I'd just mention that, in my room, the shower needs care as the water drains away poorly and you need to be mindful of that if you leaves clothes or towels on the floor near the shower.
That very small point should not detract from a place that, for the price, is excellent value.
I will use it again if I am down that way again.

Room Tip: I had a double room and the same room both times. The rooms have good solid walls (or at least mine...

Thank you for taking the time to review us on tripadvisor and for your positive feedback. We purchased the complex in November 2012 and have invested heavily in bringing the property up to date. It had previously been in administration so was quite tired. With redecoration throughout, new beds, new TV's, curtains etc we think the differences are now noticeable. With 18 rooms we are small enough to be friendly and local but big enough to have a lot of facilities that you may look for in a bigger location. We aim to provide value for money and include breakfast as part of the room charge - unlike the large chain establishments in the 'Lodge' sector.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
