Great place to stay! It's only about 15 minutes walk from the train station and about 20 minutes walk from town centre. The hosts are very helpful and friendly. We arrived before the check-in time that morning and wanted only to leave our bags there and come back to check-in later. But they let us in right away! They even... More

We did an overnight stay here as we had to attend a funeral in Plympton early the following day. The Guest House is situated on a busy main road, opposite a Park, and only a few minutes walk from the Rail Station. We had a twin room at the rear, with ensuite, and it was very quiet. The room was... More

Thank you for your kind words. It was nice meeting you and we are sorry it had to be under such sad circumstances that you visited Plymouth. Just a note to say that the bedroom at the front of the house has a sliding panel that cuts out any noise of traffic. This room chooses to be very popular with... More

Thank you so much for staying up for us as we had travelled from Dunstable. We were late but even later because we were sightseeing late at night (AKA lost)! Your welcome was hospitable despite the late hour, and you had waited up for us, and then we needed an early start. The bed was divinely comfortable. Our breakfast was... More

I would say I had a very pleasant stay at Alma Lodge, and they really did take good care of me. Thank you. I would not hesitate a second to come back and stay here again. Great hospitality and service minded staff.

Stayed here before my sons graduation. Life saver, lending me an iron and ironing board to iron son's new shirt!! Overall the landlady was as helpful as she could be in all manner of ways, from advise on where to eat, park, directions etc. She even let my elderly father use the double bed when we had just paid for...

My mother and I were in Plymouth for her granddaughter's graduation ceremony. Paula gave us both spacious, comfortable, very clean rooms on the ground floor. The family were helpful and friendly, and did all that they could to ensure that our stay was a pleasant one. All in all it was very good value for money.

I stayed here for 2 nights - and would absolutely stay again. It is one of the most comfortable B & Bs I have stayed at - and better than most hotels. Everything was very clean. Beds very comfortable, bedding soft, coverings attractive. Shower/toilet/sink spotless. Breakfast very good. The lady in charge was very friendly and helpful, and very willing... More

We were on a quick stopover in Plymouth, so didn't arrive til late. Paula made us v welcome & we had a clean, comfortable double room at the back, with a compact ensuite & large fluffy towels.

Entitled is there a different Alma Lodge? We are beginning to think there must be. We were shocked and annoyed at the comments made by this customer. Firstly we have NO broken headboards whatsoever. Also our cooking is NOT deep fried. We grill all produce, except for mushrooms which are cooked in their own juices from a very expensive pan... More

Stayed one night 15.8.14. Spotlessly clean and comfy. Ensuite masquerading as a wardrobe certainly unusual from the outside but all worked very well, with big fluffy towels and good shower. Although on the dual carriageway, there was very little road noise - certainly not enough to disturb us. Good choice with fresh fruit and yoghurts available for breakfast as well... More
