Just stayed here for one night, so didn't get benefit of nice location close to Plymouth Hoe. Our room was clean and comfortable, although no en suite. Excellent breakfast and the owners were very helpful and welcoming. Parking (on street) was easy to find nearby.

My dive club stayed here for a weekend in September. We booked the whole Guest House, but only paid £25 a head and, to be honest, I wasn't expecting much more than a bed for that. However, the Moorings was an absolute bargain. All the rooms were spotlessly clean and roomy and comfortable. Two of us had a room with... More

Stayed here for a weekend. Comfortable bed. Nice breakfast. Good location as close to Hoe and the city centre. Easy parking nearby - on street free 4pm- 10am, - other times speak to the owners of The Moorings as they provided a discounted pre paid parking ticket to display on car

Apprehensive at first as don't usually choose to stay in bed and breakfast, but pleasantly surprised and impressed with this place. Plenty of storage space, very comfortable bed and great shower. Even though a bit of a walk to town centre, worth the extra exercise and get to enjoy the Hoe. Breakfast excellent all 3 mornings we were here. Dispute... More

Having spent a long week at the Moorings, 4 Garden Crescent, West Hoe, Plymouth, I can highly recommend this Guest House, it's a very clean, breakfast was excellent with a good range of choice, breakfast was cooked individually for you. Sam and Franca were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Would not hesitate going there again. Thank you... More

I am sorry you felt the need to write such a review. As I pointed out at the time in order for me to give you a receipt you have to give me something. You booked and paid through a third party and your receipt should come from them. Your request for me to provide you with a blank receipt... More

Stayed in July in single room. Room was clean, not too noisy, bathroom (shared) was also spotless each time, breakfast was good, owners friendly. Location was good, as it was not too far from the old city center, easily walkable, and a lovely walk too.

We booked this B&B for one night in June, and had a lovely stay. The room and ensuite were clean, we had a nice big window, and breakfast in the morning was tasty with lots of options. Good location for taking a nice leisurely walk to the barbican, as we did. Thanks!
