First visit to this hotel in 20 years, but comfortable & well priced with free parking..... Avoid first floor if function on (unless you're at the function) Good cooked breakfast - but let down by low budget hash browns, why do all major hotel chains do this ? Will be back.

The hotel is stunning, steeped in history and stands out. It really is grand. Alex poletzzi from hotel inspector was staying, though as a guest, not working on it!!! If it is good enough for her it's great for me. The rooms are a little dated, having stopped 3 times in the last few months the odd room could do... More

Let me start by pointing out there are no major American chains in Plymouth. This is a Best Western, meaning it is independently owned, but nothing can be assumed from that affiliation. If I had written a review after our first night, I probably would only have given a one star rating, but I mellowed over nights 2 and 3... More

My wife and i stayed at Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth on 3/10/14. The service and presentation of the Hotel Lobby was good, it is a very old hotel and the decor is time matched. The room we had was huge, about 6 meters square, the bathroom was large too. The down side is that the floor in our... More

Despite arranging for a late check out as one of us had just finished a night shift .... We were rudely awoken by a maid, who let herself into our room !! This was before 10.30 !! Normal checkout is 11, we had agreed 12. So wake up very unexpected, a bit premature even for a normal checkout!! And plan... More

Super Hotel with superbly furnished rooms. very old fashioned glamour. WE always stop here for a meal on way to ferry port, but this time decided to stop over one night on return. This was a good decision in terms of a decent rest for the driver (me) and sleep quality. There are very nice touches in the room which... More
