What a great pleasure to stay again at the Swinton! Everything spotless as ever, with a warmest welcome and the feeling of being regarded as a family member all the time. I wish Lorraine and Alan a very happy retirement, and be certain we'll be sharing a cup of tea next time, wherever you are in Plymouth. With love, Susana.

A super place to stay. Like stepping into a little corner of Heaven. Clean isn't the word... immaculate. Lorraine could not do enough. What a shame my course was cancelled an evening spent in such warm company is an opportunity not to be missed. I was transported to a time when my own late Mum ran a Guest House with... More

Run by a lovely friend fly couples, just what you hope for from a b&b. Everything you need nothing superfluous, clean, well presented, close to city centre in a residential area, parking for me was right in front.

Didn't book. Went on the day and luckily a room available. Had a lovely room and the place was immaculate. Lovely friendly owners who went out of their way to help. A lovely breakfast too and very reasonable prices. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Both Lorraine and Alan are perfect hosts and are very knowledgeable about the local area –as they are local. Alan warmly welcomed me and Lorraine took the motherly care thereafter. The rooms are tastefully decorated and spotless and the breakfasts are served in a lovely room and are excellent quality....

It's saw really good. If someone is in my case, travelling alone, arrive in a city we don't know we just want a good and safe place with friendly host. Perfect English Breakfast, and it's near the train station, it's really easy to go there by foot, but also if you come with the ferry it's like 10min by taxi.... More

Another wonderful stay with Alan and Lorraine at the Swinton, nothing is to much trouble, perfect location for the city centre and quite possibly the best cooked breakfast in Plymouth! See you again when Becca graduates!

We stayed here for one night in November, we arrived at 8am and checked in immediately with no fuss or bother, a beautifully warm welcome from both Lorraine & Alan. Breakfast was fantastic, impressive eggs from Alan!! Our room was very clean, lovely hot shower. Great location with easy access to town centre & Barbican. 10 min walk or £4-5... More

Having previously spotted this accommodation when visiting family who live walking distance from the station and this hotel, decided to do a little research as my adult son had not seen his sister and nieces for almost a year. With my daughter unable to put us both up comfortably and now having 3 early risers in the house....... This wonderful... More
