We received a very warm greeting and found the facilities to be excellent. The room (for three people) was plenty large, the double bed large and comfortable and the breakfast very good. As our stay was to visit relatives who lived close by, I cannot comment on the situation with regard to visiting the city, shops, etc., but understand that...

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alma Lodge, from the cleanliness to the extremely helpful nature of the landlady. Nothing was too much trouble, and our room was really comfortable and had all the necessary amenities. We will definitely be visiting here again. Many thanks to the staff. Andy Bannister.

I stayed on business for two nights, my room was clean and comfortable with a very imaginative ensuite shower room - see other reviews for details.... Owners were friendly and helpful, offering lots of advice about local amenities. The full English was excellent and there was also a wide variety of fruit juices, cereals, fruit, porridge etc. A great place...

Very pleased to hear that you would want to return again. We cannot have a better recommendation than that. Both football teams ended in a draw also, therefore not too bad a result on both sides. Kind Regards, staff at Alma Lodge.

We stayed for 2 nights in September as part of a mini 'road trip' down the coast. We chose this location as it was close to several points of interest for us, including the Eden Project in St Austell.

We booked here due to its close proximity to the city centre, with free parking. The house is beautifully presented with ornate plastering and a lovely colour scheme. A small guest house that prides itself on friendly service, helping us with directions to food options and laundry service. We had the front suite but didn't hear any road noise thanks...

We thank you for such lovely comments. We were pleased with comments about front bedroom as people who have not been in this room conclude that it would be a noisy room but as you state the triple glazing is excellent. Hope you enjoy your new venture and look forward to your return. Best Wishes from the Alma Lodge Staff.
