Stayed for a four night leisure break on Dinner Bed and Breakfast, and had a wonderful stay in Plymouth. All central shops and theatres are almost on the doorstep. Hotel is in the grand style but all mod cons. Staff were very helpful and attentive especially the dining staff for whom nothing was too much trouble, even when busy with... More

I visited this establishment, it having been recommended by my niece's friends, who told me that the bar was run by a couple who looked exactly like Sue Johnson and Ricky Tomlinson from the Royale Family (television). This turned out to be a falsehood (enquiries were made) and although I enjoyed a nice sparkling wine on a reasonable seat, the... More

We stayed one night in this hotel as we had been told the location was good. Checked trip advisor considered the mixed reviews, but decided to book anyway. We arrived around 1pm and parked our car in the hotel car park. This was a bonus as there was no extra charge for parking, so our car remained there for the... More

I recently visited the Duke of Cornwall hotel on a business trip and stayed for one night having both evening meal and breakfast here. The hotel is located close to the Hoe and away from the main roads so there is not much road noise. I did notice however that it is located close to the Plymouth Pavilions which may... More

Stayed here before catching a ferry to France. Nice hotel, staff friendly, rooms clean and comfortable. The decor is in need of some TLC but that if you can see past that it's a comfortable and reasonably priced hotel.

Lovely stay - staff very helpful and professional - restaurant area and breakfast excellent . Our family room very spacious but 4th bed( sofa) not comfortable and decor a bit dated and worn. My parents had a deluxe room which was beautiful but pricey. All in all a good stay and would return .

We stayed here for one night after arriving on the ferry drom Santander. It was an easy walk from the ferry terminal and check in was quite speedy considering we arrived at the same time as a German coach party. The room on the top floor was spacious with a decent bathroom but no hair drier.The 4 poster bed looked... More

Stayed on business and was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this hotel is after reading a few of the negative reviews on here. I stayed in a basic room which was spotlessly clean, large and with lovely views. The whole place has an lovely ambience, the staircase is amazing, I really enjoyed staying somewhere with such a contrast to the... More

After reading some less than complementary reviews about this hotel I was rather nervous when we arrived. However, we had a lovely surprise. We had booked late as we were attending a friend's funeral & things were rather rushed. Consequently we were given a family room @ £86 B&B per room per night. We were shown a huge room with... More
