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.

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!

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

We will stay in the Swinton again (if they will have us!) - our hosts went out of their way to make us comfortable and help us - even booking us in for an evening meal at the local pub. The interior of the house is in beautiful condition and the rooms are spacious and well equipped - and great... More
