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

We really enjoyed our stay at the Duke of Cornwall. This traditional hotel is situated near the far end of Plymouth’s Hoe, which is extremely quiet and peaceful. Nonetheless, it is very convenient for the City Centre, to which one can walk in five or ten minutes. The hotel surpassed our expectations. We have stayed at hotels where the rooms... More

We decided to go to The Duke of Cornwall because we liked the gothic look and the photographs inside looked warm and comfortable, which indeed it was. We also wanted to go to a place where everything is in walking distance. We booked a superior room comprising of a bedroom sitting room and bathroom overlooking the marina and sea. The... More

my friend and I have recently returned from a mini break and theatre trip to Plymouth and we had a 2 night stay in the hotel. We had a lovely room overlooking the city, 2 arm chairs to enjoy the views, 2 comfortable beds and en suite facilities, excellent value, staff were more than obliging and nothing was too much...

A quite strange hodgepodge of a building now, its glory days are behind it, that's for sure. The walls are paper-thin so we were kept up by noisy neighbours on our Saturday night stay. The staff weren't that friendly either. The breakfast was good enough though and it's perfectly acceptable, just nothing special.
