Positive Reviews

Lovely Location

Most guests liked The Donnington's convenient location. The Truro city centre and most major sights can be reached within a 15-minute walk. Shopping, dining, bars and entertainment are all reachable on foot. In addition, the hotel is close to public transportation, the train station and highway A30, which making for easy travels.

Satisfying Stay

Overall, guests were pleased with their accommodations and the warm welcome they received. The rooms are comfortable, well-equipped. Guests never felt cramped and felt that they had all the basic necessities. In addition, the refrigerator in most rooms was viewed as a bonus.

Worth the View

Guests recommend asking for one of the back rooms for the lovely views of the Truro Cathedral and the city.

Negative Reviews

Renovate and Redecorate

Even though the rooms were satisfactory, guests say some renovations, redecoration, and maybe better attention to detail when cleaning, are necessary. The room décor appears dated, some rooms have a damp smell, and many showers need a deep cleaning from mineral buildup.

Better Breakfast

The daily breakfast gets mixed reviews. While some guests enjoyed the selection, others weren't too impressed with the offerings, describing it as mediocre, and adding that expectations were higher.

Lift and Accessibility

Some guests were concerned about the lack of a lift within the hotel. If you have a lot of luggage or trouble with stairs, you may want to keep this in mind. However, the hotel does have a chair lift for accessibility, but only to the first floor (one above ground level) and not the second floor. If you will be needing a chair lift to access your room, make sure to specify that upon reservation.
