In need of a refurbishment. Very friendly staff however avoid room 310 !! We upgraded to a superior room that's was big and roomy the shower was a challenge to get working the door feel off at one time and the TV and curtains where broken . Over priced for the condition of the rooms. Great location though

Well positioned old charm hotel, very comfortable room, good breakfast. The only minus is the hotel has groups coming and it seems they have priority. Basically the food disappearing very quickly and you have to ask waitresses for more choice.

This is a hotel that needs to be visited! The location is close to the center of Plymouth. From here it's an easy walk to Smeatons Lighthouse and many other Plymouth attractions. The rooms I have stayed in have all been a decent size, far bigger than my room at home. Sadly on this occasion I didn't get there until... More

We enjoyed a great concert at the pavilions, the room was clean, recently decorated on the 2nd floor. The building is lovely and full of charm. The staircase is majestic. Breakfast is absolutely excellent in my opinion, and the dining room very relaxing. We had dinner at nearby Morgans which again was excellent, before the concert, and again very close... More

Unfortunately we only stayed one night here, as it was at the end of a reunion tour in the UK. It was great! Parking on site (though a little cramped), lovely, restful room, clean and spacious. Central location. Other reviews have commented on the noise- well, it is in the city centre, so I think that you have to consider... More

My husband and I stayed for one night in April to see a show at the nearby Theatre. We booked the Tower Room because we don't get away often and fancied treating ourselves. whilst you cannot deny the view and uniqueness of this room, I found it rather sad that it has been refurbished in 'executive' style. Metal and glass... More

We only booked the one night as we were mainly in Plymouth to watch a band play at the Pavillions. I phone a couple of days before to see if they could get the room ready early for us as we were due to get there around 1100, they said they would try. Arrived just gone 1100 and the carpark... More
