The room was very nice with comfortable bed and fantastic view over the Hoe. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice from the menu. Karen and Ray and a lovely couple and made me very welcome during my stay. I would recommend this guest house to anyone.

Most disappointed with this unaccommadating place. The only place to get wifi is down stairs in the breakfast room, no good if you're on the top floor. It boasts spectacular views ....., All we could see was a tree and some grubby roof tops. The food was average at best. I gave over 48 hours notice for leaving a day... More

I am sorry that you were unhappy with your stay at our guest house. Your main complaint seems to be that you stayed 3 nights of a four night booking and were not given a refund for leaving a day early. Your left early because the job you were working on finished earlier than expected and not because you were... More

The guest house is very well positioned for the Barbican and Plymouth Howe. 5 mins by Taxi from the station. The main shopping centre is only a 15 min walk. Karen and Ray are very accommodating and helpful. The Guest House is spotlessly clean and the room I stayed in was very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent. I would highly... More

Our walking group stayed here for two nights whilst walking sections of the SW coastal footpath. The B&B was extremely well-located - most of Plymouth's main attractions, plus cafes, bars and restaurants were walking distance and thus within easy reach. All 11 of us were accommodated in the house and enjoyed a delicious breakfast together. The rooms were clean and... More
