Testimonials

From Awards to Customer feedback, we are always looking to improve our service. Here’s a selection of our favourite testimonials from our lovely guests.

Excellent budget accommodation in quiet location

I was glad that I paid a little extra for the standard room with TV and hospitality tray. The bed was amazingly comfortable (and I often find B&B beds too hard for my liking), the location was quiet with no traffic noise, (no problem with other noisy guests, as other reviewers have mentioned) and the breakfast in the main refectory was excellent. The staff on reception were unfailingly helpful. The only thing I did rather miss was not having a comfy chair in the room, but I guess you couldn't fit one in. I was on a tight budget, and therefore I thought this accommodation was very good value for money.

Blissful. Perfect hideout if you are wanting tranquility, the food was excellent, too.

There was some building work going on but didn't detract as it was far round the other side of the university complex. Even the builders we met were helpful

It was a pleasant surprise to see how clean and well equipped the rooms were. The grounds were beautiful and everyone we met were welcoming, pleasant and obliging. Close enough to Falmouth and Truro. A most relaxing few days

Perfect for us.

What's not to like?? We had a slight issue with the first room we were given, (my mistake when booking) but it was sorted without any quibbles. Excellent facilities; free parking, on-site shop, cafe/bar, helpful staff, superb choices for breakfast. Each room has wifi, TV, kettle, safe, en-suite, shared fully equipped kitchen with iron and ironing board, bus service on-site and Penryn train station 10 minutes walk away. Each block and floor requires digital fob access, so very secure. Like Travel Lodge/Premier Inn but much, much better. It is primarily a University Campus, so is only available during the summer holidays. We have been here twice before and will definitely be back! Perfect for us 🙂

This accommodation ticked all the boxes!

I have given maximum points because I knew what I wanted (a self-catering, comfortable room on the campus where my daughter was studying), and this accommodation ticked all the boxes.
I used the bus and train on several occasions which worked fine because I had the timings in advance. Other visitors may prefer to bring a car and use this as a base to discover Cornwall.

We came for our son’s graduation, and you helped make it an amazing time!

It was our first time to Cornwall, we came for our son's graduation, and you helped make it an amazing time. The room was clean, the beds comfortable, the people so very lovely. We have fallen in love with the area and definitely will be back. Thank you.

NCS Participant

It was really fun to go to a university, especially at a young age, where we each got our own room and had to cook meals each night for our flat. The university had the facilities to house us all and for the fun informative talks and events that we had in the day. We also had free time in the evenings to explore the beautiful campus and feel like actual university students.
