The Alverton


Welcome to The Alverton

Set amongst emerald lawns and ancient trees, The Alverton has resided on its hillside setting since the nineteenth century, and is a converted convent turned 4-star hotel.

An oasis just a stone’s throw away from the city centre, the beautifully designed interiors of this grade-II listed building, breath-taking architecture and gorgeous private gardens peacefully contrast the vibrant feel in Truro’s centre just a short walk away.

Relax at this hidden gem, and treat yourself to a slice of laidback luxury.
