I booked 3 rooms here through my personal account. When i arrived we only needed two so I would still have to pay for three- I can pay all that in the morning- understood and fine. Beautiful building in poor repair but we had a good nights sleep. Breakfast was ok and location was good given competitive price. The next... More

Stayed one night on business, staff were friendly and efficient, my room (107) was very large, spotlessly clean with a good powerful shower. View was the side of some modern addition, which loses it a star. I had a good night's sleep, no loud or annoying noises. Breakfast was the usual fare but well cooked and plenty of it, no... More

We stayed once again the night before we caught the ferry. We had dinner in the bar which was good value and the food was very good. There was a function going on and while this did finish promptly at 11pm were kept away by the heat as the room was so hot we had to have the window open... More

This imposing Victorian edifice still retains an air of past grandeur - the heavy wallpapers, the wooden pannelling, the large windows - and the staff are invariably helpful, but the breakfasts are let down by poor management. We stayed for nearly a week, and almost every morning something was missing from our table or from the buffet (no yoghurt or... More

My wife and I often travel to Plymouth to see shows at the Theatre Royal and always stay at the Duke of Cornwall. It is perfectly positioned with the Hoe, the shopping centre and the theatre all within a short walking distance. We have always found the staff very friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and comfortable. We... More

Had a lovely room on the 5th floor, spotlessly clean, very friendly staff, followed by a superb breakfast, would definitely stay here again. If going to the Pavilions for a show it is right on the doorstep, and the hoe and barbican only a short distance away.
