We stayed one night while in Plymouth. The hotel was clean, however the bed was very uncomfortable with a lumpy mattress. The shower in the bathroom wasn't worth the effort of using it,it was literally a dribble and impossible to wash under properly. We did stay on the 5th floor which may have had something to do with it, but... More

We stayed for one night with our two small children. The hotel looks very impressive from the outside and there was plenty of parking. The reception area is modern and immaculate- quite a contrast to the corridors and the rooms, which are very dated with a rather depressing brown colour theme. Our room was also very dark, with only two... More

Despite being a little concerned about this Hotel after reading some of the reviews on here, we were pleasantly surprised. We arrived early, reception was very friendly and our room was ready. Very impressed with the whole experience. The room had been recently renovated with new bathroom. Very clean and comfortable bed. Large room with all the amenities, iron, trouser... More

Stayed here for 3 nights last week. Room was a good size, clean with all the facilities you would expect, except for air conditioning.Room was very hot at night even with the window open and duvet more suitable for winter nights.Breakfast is a bit underwhelming for the size of the hotel. Served in a old fashioned dining hall, choices are... More

If you are visiting Plymouth Pavillions then this hotel could not be any closer. If you would like to sleep then this hotel is not the one for you. We were on the 5th floor, it was a warm night, but there was no air conditioning and so the room was very stuffy. The window was open when we arrived... More

Stayed at this hotel in July 15 and it was OK. The charge for car parking was reasonable at £3 but feel this should have been made clear when booking. The hotel felt a little dated and in need of some renovation but the staff were friendly. No air con in the room which made the night a little warm.

The rooms in the hotel are fine, nothing fancy, but clean and free Wi-Fi. There was no place in the bathroom to hang a dressing gown or anything. At least a hook on the back of the bathroom door would have been nice. The location is good, with the Barbican and historic districts within walking distance and the bar and... More

Excellent location with well laid out rooms. Very clean having fresh towels everyday and even a change of linen half way through our stay. There was a very short walk passing Weatherspoons on the way before reaching an excellent shopping complex. Well cooked food especially the breakfast.
