It is also ideally located for the Royal Cornwall and Duchy hospitals, County Hall, Records office and Truro College. Our rate is per night per room and includes a full cooked breakfast*. The breakfast comprises of: -tea, coffee and fruit juice -cereals -yoghurts -preserves and toast. -sausage, free range egg, lean back bacon, tomato, mushrooms, baked beans and a hash brown. *We are unable to provide a full-cooked breakfast during the Christmas period (24th Dec-2nd January) Any balance of payment outstanding should be made by cash or cheque on departure. Regretfully there is no facility to take credit/debit cards on the premises. As we are a family run guesthouse, we are not staffed 24 hours a day in the same way as a hotel and so we appreciate the approximate time of your arrival. We regret that we will not be available for any check in after 10pm unless a prior arrangement has been made by telephone. There will be no cancellation charge if a booking is cancelled before 14:00 (local time) 48 hours before your date of arrival. If the booking is cancelled later, or in the case of a no-show, the first night will be charged.
