Home to Michelin-star restaurants and world-famous chefs, Cornwall is a foodie’s paradise. Fortunately, with a prime location in the heart of Truro, Merchant House Hotel couldn’t be better placed to discover the best culinary hotspots and sample mouth-watering dish after dish…
If you are a food-lover, you have come to the right place. In easy walking distance of a number of restaurants, bistros, café, pubs and takeaways, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to food and drink – and that’s just in the city. With free parking on-site at Merchant House Hotel, a 7-10-minute walk into Truro centre and a train station just 15 minute away on foot, you will be able to chase the county’s coast and venture into its verdant underbelly, sampling the finest, freshest fare imaginable as you go.
A real home-from-home, every guest can enjoy a welcome tea/coffee and treat upon arrival and a complimentary breakfast each morning, Continental Breakfast is available from 6.30am – 10.00am and our Full English Breakfast is available 7.00am-9.30am Monday – Friday and 8.00-10.00am Saturday, Sunday and bank holiday Mondays. If you are setting off early we are more than happy to provide you with a breakfast bag to go, just simply see Reception the evening before your early start.
To keep you going, there will be coffee, tea and treats available throughout the day (we have a touch-free coffee machine) and you will also be able to purchase sweets, crisps and drinks from reception until 10pm.
Only a 7-10-minute stroll from the centre of Truro, Cornwall’s capital city, Merchant House Hotel provides ideal accommodation for those looking to wine and dine the nights away. With more restaurants, bars and bistros than you could shake a menu at (including dog-friendly options), you will be able to choose from a huge range of eateries spanning all corners of the globe. From traditional Cornish fodder with fresh fish of the day, to gourmet burger joints reminiscent of New York streets to exotic foods infused with exciting spices, there will be no end to your culinary exploration.
Of course, no holiday in Cornwall would be complete without long hours lazing on golden beaches, tracing coast paths, wandering windswept moors and tunnelling betwixt the adumbral sprawl of ancient woodland. Captivated by the endless beauty and pulled along by the promise of discovery, you can pack your bag with bundles of goodies from reception and Truro’s collection of delis, shops and markets. Come summer or winter, nothing will beat the dribble-inducing reward of a hot pasty or buttered saffron bun as the sun beams down from above.
If you feel like having a night in, you are always welcome to pick up some tasty bits to stow in the fridge and heat in the microwave (available for use until 10pm) here at the hotel. Of course, there are lots of great takeaways nearby too (many of which offer delivery), so feel free to make use of the lounge and curl up with piping hot plates of deliciousness before crashing out in your room, happy and replete!
