We visited The Alverton during a holiday in Cornwall, we were 4 adults and 3 toddlers under 3. From the time we arrived to the time we left we were truly spoilt. Staff were lovely and very helpful, even though they were catering for a large wedding and we were only there for an evening meal, nothing was too much...

Excellent Sunday lunch on 18th September 2016. Food was delicious. The waiting staff were cheerful and courteous - must mention the roast potatoes; probably the best we have had in a restaurant. The décor still look fab too.

I stayed at the Alverton for a week on business and quite frankly it could almost have been a holiday. The gardens are stunning, really safe and peaceful place to sit and read or write. The bedrooms could do with a little renovating, but I was comfortable. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from Lemon Quay, about 7 minutes...
