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!

Once you have stayed at The Moorings you will not need to consider anywhere else in Plymouth and surrounding district. It is exactly what it says it is; Bed & Breakfast. The web site does not do The Moorings justice; it is far better than could ever be described on a computer. Everything about the house and the proprietor is... More

Thank you for a fabulous stay. Our Diving team Ocean Explorers booked in during our couple of days of diving. We were warmly welcomed by Sam and Franca. The rooms were superb, clean and well equipped . After a long days diving we slept in comfortable beds and were treated to a beautiful full cooked English breakfast. With our interest... More

We stayed here one night. Read Trip Advisor reviews, which were 100% excellent or good. Nice room, very comfortable bed, everything very clean. Breakfast excellent, and our host very friendly. 4 minutes walk to the Hoe, which I had never seen before. Very attractive by the sea, and lots of restaurants. Thoroughly recommended.

A friend and I were looking for affordable accommodation in Plymouth for just 1 night as we were going out for her birthday and live a significant distance from the city. This guest house turned out to be little more than the typical cheap budget hotels and hugely better value for money. The location is very good and allowed us... More

We stayed one night at the Moorings guest house after the Plymouth Argyl v Fleetwood Town football match. On arrival Sam showed us to our en-suite room, number 1 on the ground floor, which was spotlessly clean & had everything you might need, including tea & coffee making facilities, toiletries, hair drier etc. After showering we took the 15 min...

I went down to The Moorings to stay overnight and see my Son off to the Gulf on HMS Montrose. Its situated 2 minutes from a great vantage point in the harbour between The Hoe and Devils Point, so no hassle in the morning after a great breakfast. The breakfast menu is varied and plentiful and served in the downstairs... More

I had to book a short, two night stay to fetch my daughter's stuff from her university digs in Plymouth. I found the Moorings on Booking.com, and it seemed to have good reviews. My stay was great. Beautiful, clean rooms, a choice of breakfasts in the morning, and a very pleasant welcome from the owners. I would definitely recommend this... More

Had a lovely stay at this very welcoming guest house, I thought the room was a very comfotable but if I had any criticism, the breakfast was a little bland but very presentable. Can fault the hospitality, a very nice place to stay

Booked a short stay in Plymouth and wanted a somewhere out of the city. We couldn't have chosen better this place was perfect. We took a lovely evening stroll along the promenade and enjoyed a nice meal. The owners were friendly and the room was well maintained and spotless clean. The breakfast was one of the best we've had and... More
