This was my first visit to Plymouth and was a 2 day business trip so didn't get too much chance to take in everything. Arrived and left by train. The general feeling I got was a nice friendly feeling on a city on the way up. A long way to go but this place haze plenty to offer

Thinking of visiting Plymouth? Then ask yourself this - how can the biggest city in the south west not have 1 five star hotel? This should start your alarm bells ringing long before you join the A38 and compete in the Janner version of the "Cannon Ball Run" Plymouth could be a cracking city, but successive city councils, local politicians...

Over the last couple of years there has been a strange falling off in the selection and quality of traders renting this seasonal wooden huts and stalls along Armada Way. This year the fairground rides have been moved more towards the guildhall and they look more lively but the lovely old carousel with the wooden horses, the candy striped tent... More

I booked and paid £150 which for some odd reason went through Paypal soundlets. before we travelled the agency phoned and said that there was a problem with the boiler and would we mind transferring...

Plymouth is a God-awful place. If you should end up there by some dreadful accident, go to the Aquarium, it's about the only worthwhile thing in this Third World dump.

My daughter has just graduated from Plymouth university and we have visited many times. She has thoroughly enjoyed her time at the uni and passed a psychology degree. When visiting we have found the city centre to be clean and pleasant with a good vibe. We have eaten out a lot and been out for drinks never seeing any mother.... More

I cannot say much more because I am in a wheelchair it is not very friendly at all, old cobbled streets lack of access to things, a lot of the pavements are in a very poor state, plenty of places to eat out, pretty expensive though. Not much to do for a tourist I think we would have been better... More
