Really pleased with my stay here. The staff were all helpful, efficient & lovely. The breakfast was substantial & of good quality. The room was large & comfortable. It was very clean and warm. In fact all that you'd want from such a place. The furnishings didn't match but if that's my only complaint it's hardly significant. The only thing...

This guesthouse was a lovely building with a real comfortable bed and lovely pillows. Good WiFi in the room. A real hearty breakfast to set you on your way. It is situated on the top road before you go down into the town but nice and quiet. Real friendly staff. And a nice view of the cathedral from bedroom window.

Pretty average and what I guess you expect at this price point. Reasonable suze room with small ensuite bathroom with shower cubicle and electric shower. Would have helped if I had been told that you have to put on an outside wall switch before you can use it. Also the over basin light didnt work so dark and as woman...

I stayed at The Donnington Guest house recently and I chose to walk from the station. The walk was a 15 minute, uphill walk with the steepest part just before The Donnington, up Chapel hill. I reached the top and turned left and found The Donnington just along the road. There was a reasonable parking area in the front but...

I stayed for 2 nights as was down working in Truro so wasn't after anything in the way of luxury. It had a bed and a roof I was happy. Down sides, duvet I felt was too thin for the time of year, luckily I had a blanket in the car which helped. TV didn't appear to work. Plus points,...

The staff were friendly, the room was very warm - the ensuite was adequate however the shower was lacklustre. We stayed in a twin room which was spacious - the beds were very comfortable but squeaky. The breakfast was very good lots of choice There was on site parking Walking distance to central Truro

I regularly stay here at the Donnington whilst visiting my son in Truro. Always met with a warm welcome. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well provided with tea/coffee etc. The breakfast is very generous. Most importantly for me there is parking, although be aware if the hotel is full, parking is limited. As long as they have the space,...

After a last minute decision to travel to Truro I rang the Donnington Guest house on the day for a one night stay. They very kindly offered me room 3. Upstairs at the front. I was met by a very friendly member of staff who was very knowledgeable on the surrounding area. The room is a twin room and beds...
