A lovely guesthouse located right on the harbor. The room was clean and comfortable with a good view of the harbor. The bathroom, as other reviews have also commented on, was a little small but was adequate for a weekend break. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Parking was in a car park about 3 mins away, no hardship really but not outside the accommodation. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. The Wheelhouse was not cooking in the evenings during our stay but we ate at the Fountain Inn which has a lovely little dining room upstairs. Good food and frequented by locals. Always a good sign.
The Alverton is set in a beautiful old building, and there are historic and local Cornish touches everywhere - from the in-room biscuits to the food menu. The staff are superb - friendly, accommodating and keen to please. Breakfast is fantastic too! I'd definitely stay here again if I return to Truro

The hotel is in an excellent spot and looks out over the harbour and open sea. The staff are very pleasant and helpful and are obviously trying to please their guests. However, there are elements of the hotel that could do with an upgrade e.g., the décor in the bar area is looking tired and there weren't enough easy chairs for those wishing to lounge in the bar! We also found the cost of parking the car in the hotel car park excessive. You were considered a guest but had to pay for parking and whilst it is understood there is limited parking, this is taking advantage of their limited space.

We stayed at the Carlyon Bay hotel on a recent short break to visit the Eden Project. The hotel and Spa are just great, and the location is excellent as a base for touring mid-Cornwall.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was superb.
This beautiful coastline boasts superb, sandy beaches, pretty fishing villages such as Polperro and Mevagissey, and small resorts such as Looe and Falmouth. The Lizard headland is famous for its cove beaches, and the creeks around Plymouth, Fowey ('foy'), and Falmouth are particularly appealing and attract yachtsmen. Magnificent gardens come right down to the coast, while the spectacular Eden Centre is the world's finest 'plant theme park'.
