We stayed for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year. Rob and Sue were very welcoming and greeted us by name. We stayed in the same room as the review from 4 weeks ago, and found the bed very comfortable! It was a large room with a view across to the Citadel. Ok, the bathroom was quite compact, but perfectly... More

We were in Plymouth for one night only for a theatre visit and we were attracted to this B&B by the TA reviews. The premises were very clean and well maintained and our room was fine if a little utilitarian. The bathroom was tiny and the bed was very uncomfortable and we could feel springs through the mattress. The owners... More

I stayed at the Barbican reach for one night and had a great stay. The owners, Rob and Sue are warm and welcoming and had excellent recommendations for where to eat nearby. Barbican reach is in a great location which is very close to the Hoe. I was in the double room on the bottom floor which was really well... More

We stayed for one night while visiting relatives in Plymouth in their "cosy double" although the room was small, it was very comfortable and we had every thing we could have wanted. Parking was no problem, location was great, and breakfast was first class. Thanks Rob and Sue and hope to see you again!

Sue gave my daughter and me a very warm welcome and was exemplary in terms of recommending restaurants and local walks to take in the Hoe and Barbican areas. The weather was gorgeous so followed all her suggested walks and got great views of Plymouth Sound. My daughter had a fully en suite on the ground floor and I had... More

My family and I stayed at Barbican Reach for a one night trip to Plymouth. Barbican Reach is in an excellent location, minutes away from The Hoe and Barbican as well as the city centre. Rooms were lovely and modern with comfy beds and functioning televisions. Rob and Sue were great hosts, assisting us with our many bags to our... More

1 night stay wasn't enough so will return. Local B&Bs tend to be bit 'tired', but not here. Fresh, clean and contemporary. Arranged an arrival time and Rob was there to welcome me with a knowledgable summary of dining out locally. Its obvious he cares about his business and the comfort of his guests. To top it all breakfast was... More
