The Duke of Cornwall Hotel is a grand old lady in a prime location for Plymouth's Theater Royal and the Pavillions. If you like the 'traditional' type of hotel, this one's for you. Every room is different, with differing windows, aspect, decor - there's even a four poster bed in one of the rooms. The staff that we had contact... More

I grew up in Plymouth so have always known this hotel but have never stayed, we were so pleasantly surprised. I had expected it to be worn down and old fashioned but it was so beautiful! We had room 413 with a great view of the sea and the ferry! The room was spotless, elegant, the bed was amazing and... More

Stayed here on a quick one-night break to Plymouth to see a band at the Pavilions. Chose the hotel because it is directly opposite the venue and they had a great offer on, we paid £67.50 including breakfast. The parts of the hotel we saw were beautifully maintained, the decor is in keeping with the age of the building, really... More

Fantastic hotel in the heart of the city. This hotel keeps it's authentic antique feel with the broad dining room, classy drinks and welcoming staff. Adored staying here and would definitely stay again. Transport links and the nightlife around this are is perfect for it's location.

I spent ages deciding on which hotel to stay in and finally settled on the Duke of Cornwall - we were not disappointed at all. From the very start i was made to feel at ease with the friendly and welcoming staff. The room was lovely and clean, i had no issues with anything other than wishing i had booked... More

The Duke of Cornwall is actually in a good location for the Hoe and centre. Good to walk off the hearty breakfast with a walk around the Hoe. The double room was spacious and bed comfortable. Also found the staff courteous and helpful. The hotel is over 150 years old built initially to cater for a railway branch line since... More

Had a great few days here with my husband. Lovely hotel, gorgeous sweeping staircase, beautiful Victorian features, creaky floorboards (in a good way), warm, atmospheric, lovely open spaces in the hotel and we had a fab room. Comfy bed, big bathroom and enormous shower. Breakfast was good, and we had a delicious dinner one night. The staff were lovely and... More
