Experience a little slice of Cornish countryside and tranquility at our hotel on the hill, and discover what makes The Alverton experience so special.

"The Alverton offers its visitors country glamour in the centre of a city. The former convent sits proudly on a hill offering a stunning welcome as you travel up the driveway through tall trees, which provide beautiful framing for the now hotel."
The Wordrobe Review
"Up a hill, a short stroll from the centre of Truro, The Alverton has a holy feel about it."
The Times Travel
"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
"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
"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."
Telegraph 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
"The devil's in the detail - old-world charm meets calming modernity."
