We spent an amazing Christmas at the Alverton. The hotel was warm and the staff absolutely amazing throughout the whole stay. They were cheerful and always acknowledged us. They had all clearly been well trained as the level of service was high. The additional events put on were a treat and the gifts given to us a real surprise. The room was very comfortable and the hotel has been beautifully decorated with original features. The open fire in the bar was most welcome. The food for all meals was delicious and piping hot.

I’ve just got back from our work’s Christmas party which was held in the Oak room at the Alverton.|I follow a special diet due to a health condition so couldn’t select from the festive menu. When I emailed to explain, I received a response telling me that the chef would phone me to discuss my diet, which he did.|The chef prepared a fantastic three course meal for me and checked all the ingredients with me beforehand. |The waiting staff were excellent and the bar tenders did an amazing job keeping up with the drinks orders!|My meal was delicious and I want to say a huge thank you to the chef and the other staff for doing such a great job.|The location was also stunning.
