UPDATED 11th MAY 2020: Following the publication of the UK government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy, we are working towards reopening The Alverton no earlier than 4th July this year. We will constantly be reviewing the situation and will only open when it is safe to do so, to ensure we play our part in protecting our team, guests, local community and our NHS. When we are able to trade again, please rest assured we will be 100% compliant with all requirements, guidelines and best practice.

You do not need to contact us regarding this extension – it will automatically apply. We are also offering gift vouchers with the sentiment of ‘buy now enjoy later’, and if you would like to purchase these to use when we are back on our feet, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

"The chef’s signature is beef cooked three ways and it is melt-in-the-mouth delicious, especially when washed down with a bottle of the Barolo. The seafood is (of course) excellent and fresh, and the atmosphere is lively"
"...It's a stylish hotel with a well-regarded restaurant"
"It’s the county capital Truro’s most comfortable place to stay by far"
"The atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious and exceptional staff in the bar and restaurant put everyone at their ease."
"Once a bank, then a covenant for nuns, this romantic ‘secret-in-the-city’ tastefully juxtaposes the building’s historical heritage with a contemporary design that feels luxurious but homely."
"Lovely bar, opening onto the terrace, where experienced staff give practised advice on wines. Food at the Brasserie, comfortable, low-lit and relaxed, is generous both in its portions and flavours."
"Each room pays homage to the hotel’s illustrious past, with arched doorways and windows, original flagstone flooring and exposed brickwork — complemented by bespoke furnishings, contemporary ensuite bathrooms, and a wealth of mod cons."
"In some ways The Alverton encapsulates the theory that Cornwall is punching well above its weight in the nation's hospitality scene."
"The Chapel suite featured beautiful vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows, bespoke furniture, a gorgeous free-standing copper bathtub, and all the amenities you’d expect for a luxury stay."
