An excellent B&B - better than many hotels I have stayed in. Could not fault the cleanliness throughout and the high quality of the equipment in the rooms. The food was excellent and served in generous portions. The location is superb for the University graduation ceremonies which take place on the Hoe, a mere 100 metres away. The only reservation...

The position is excellent, overlooking the Bowling Green where Francis Drake played Bowls whilst awaiting the Spanish Armada. It is also ideal for the University Graduation ceremonies which take place less than 100yards away on the Ho! The rooms are all spotless and cleaned daily. The Breakfast's offered would cater for any taste ranging from Full English to simple fruit... More

This may only be a guesthouse but it is much better than many hotels I have stayed in. Personal service at breakfast, food excellent and healthy. Spotlessly clean and well equipped rooms. Could not fault our stay, great position in Plymouth and would certainly return in the future.

I have stayed here every year that I have been to Plymouth for the British Fireworks Championships, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else! The location is perfect, right on the Hoe, only a short walk from the shops in the town centre, and also a short walk to great vantage points for the fireworks/seafront! It has everything you need, friendly... More

A very warm welcome. Very friendly hosts. Fantastic breakfasts and immaculately clean accommodation. Pristine bed Linen of the best quality and a perfect location. We have loved every minute of our stay and would not hesitate in making this our first choice in Plymouth in the future. Thank you Jean and Tom for looking after us so well!

I stay at the Bowling Green Hotel for 3 night with my wife and my one year old son. Firstly it's not easy travelling away and staying in a hotel with such a young baby but Tom at the Bowling Green made us and my son very very welcome. The hotel is in an excellent location for shops, restaurants or... More

Very clean and tidy, breakfast offered very good. Tom was very helpful could not do enough for you. Parking easy £2 per day. Excellent position for walking either into the town or along the Hoe. Would recommend The Glass Blowing House, we had a lovely meal there. JP
