Fab meal for 5. Restaurant a little quiet which was a concern but we had nothing to worry about. Garlic and herb bread delicious, huge portion of really delicious moules and a fantastic home made pavlova to finish. Kleftiko lamb shank was excellent too and the halloumi mushroom burger was enormous. Our waiter could not have been friendlier and he... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in May with my Mum. On arrival, we were about an hour earlier than the 2pm check-in time, and the grumpy receptionist just told us to come back after 2pm - not the best of welcomes! Also, on entering the car park, I was looking for a suitable space and not paying proper attention,... More

Only one thing on the menu i could eat and they had run out. Breakfast is tiny. Everything about this hotel is cost saving apart from the prices. Receptionists are great so was the resturant... More

We stayed for one night on a room-only basis. The receptionist on arrival was ok but not overly friendly, in contrast the receptionist at check out was very happy and helpful. The car park was easy to locate and the hotel was so close to the ferry port (we came off the Spain-UK ferry to stay here), that we were... More

What a find! looks a little shabby from the outside, but, fantastic inside. Immaculately clean, very modern, staff excellent, just wish we had stayed longer, Plymouth is a real gem, much more to it than we could have expected especially the marina area, which, if it hadn't have been for the very helpful lady on reception we would never have...

What could you ask for that this doesn't have. Personality from the staff shine through everything. The room that I stayed in was on the small side but comfortable. Food was lovely, served by ever smiling staff. Good starting point for Cornwall .

The crumbling aged facade did give me pause. But the hotel while dated & creaky is comfortable and close enough to Plymouth Hoe & the City Centre. Would stay here again for the heated pool, sauna and steam which were lovely. Nice staff as well.
