The Citadel House is an old fashioned but very pleasant and cosy hotel, the staff are more than helpful and serve an adequate breakfast. The rooms are not huge but ours was plenty big enough. There are all the normal facilities you would expect but remember this is not a swish modern hotel so if you want that try premier... More

I have seen a lot of bad reviews on this Hotel have been wrote. But I can only think they are very much exaggerated, I found the hotel to be clean, friendly, comfortable and a nice breakfast. Parking needs to be paid for during the day and later in the evening a space can be difficult to find.

The land lady of the Citadel saved our bacon as we were booked into another place across town in Devonport. That place was terrible, but this place was like the cavalry! Location is 3 mins walk from a view of The Hoe, and about 5 mins walk from The Hoe itself. The rooms are Ok ; the breakfast might not... More

Very disappointed. The bath towel was small and had the texture of a rusty cheese grater! The soap in tiny shower room was the size of a stamp! Shower gel was blue with lumpy white globules of god knows what! Norma had promised us we'd have fresh coffee for breakfast....the cafetiere arrived caked in dust and clearly wasn't fresh coffee...

It has been a year since my husband and I visited this hotel and this was my first trip to england, the staff were very welcoming and I really enjoyed the breakfast options. This hotel is located in a really convenient and pretty area.

Disappointed with B and B, was expecting something a little bit nicer after previewing the pictures, however whole appearance of accommodation was a little shabby :( unfortunately room keys got mixed up with my packing and the proprietor took it upon herself to debit my bank account for £10 to cover the cost of lost keys without my authorisation. Had... More
