The Venue

Events at The Alverton

A breath-taking venue for weddings, events, conferences and celebrations.

"Up a hill, a short stroll from the centre of Truro, The Alverton has a holy feel about it."
The Times Travel
"Although it's smack-dab in town, it feels like a genteel country house hotel, complete with rolling, private grounds. From the extraordinary vaulted ceiling of the cathedral-like chapel to the “nuns' cells” in the lower part of the main building, the sandstone and flint buildings ooze historical vibes."
Manor Magazine
"Upon arrival I thought the 18th-century property had a whiff of Hogwarts about it; suffice to say I was immediately enamoured by its heritage good looks. Despite being a stone’s throw from the city centre of Truro, it had a countryside retreat vibe to it, thanks to the manicured grounds and mature landscaping."
The Luxury Editor
"It’s the county capital Truro’s most comfortable place to stay by far."
The Independent
"In some ways The Alverton encapsulates the theory that Cornwall is punching well above its weight in the nation's hospitality scene."
Western Morning News
"Occupying a rambling Victorian-Gothic pile hidden behind high stone walls and centuries-old trees, The Alverton is a classic county town hotel with a contemporary twist."
The Telegraph
"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 en-suite bathrooms, and a wealth of mod cons."
Codelia Mantsebo, The Wordrobe
"Once a convent for nuns, this romantic ‘secret-in-the-city’ tastefully juxtaposes the building’s historical heritage with a contemporary design that feels luxurious but homely."
The Wordrobe
"The devil's in the detail - old-world charm meets calming modernity."
West Briton
"It's a stylish hotel with a well-regarded restaurant which is elegant, sophisticated and colourful."
Tom Chesshyre, The Times
"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."
