Our classic rooms are ample and homely - with all the little touches for a memorable trip to the Cornish capital. The rooms are spacious, with views towards the back of the hotel. They contain antique furniture, good size en-suite facilities, and a desk with chair. We have doubles and twins available.
Situated in the main house, The Bishop Suite is indulgent and very romantic. Expect double roll-top baths for the ultimate opulence and lots of natural daylight.
Your home away from home
The main house at The Alverton is a quiet oasis in the county's capital city. Tucked away but just a short stroll from Truro's magnificent cathedral and thrum of busy streets, our historic hotel on the hill promises comfort, curiosity, and the warmest Cornish welcome from our award-winning team.
"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
"The devil's in the detail - old-world charm meets calming modernity."
"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."
"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."
"There's a wealth of history in its ceiling beams."
