St Austell Brewery has today officially opened its first hotel in Truro.
The 33-bedroom lodge adjoins the County Arms at Highertown, and Adam Luck, St Austell Brewery’s estate director, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for us and will give us our first hotel in the city of Truro, close to the headquarters of Cornwall Council and the Royal Cornwall Hospital.
“We have identified a shortage of quality, good value accommodation in the Truro area and this is a great opportunity to meet this demand with a new hotel linked to a well-established, popular pub.”
The hotel is linked to the County Arms and operated by the pub’s existing managers, Antony and Kelly Woodcock.
The brewery said it was part of a long-term expansion strategy, to add to its 174-strong estate in Cornwall and Devon.
