I have just spent 7 nights here while working in the area. The room was clean and breakfast was really good. The owners are friendly and approachable. I stayed in the single room and a single bed was not something that I have slept in since I was young, however it was my. Employer that booked the room. The bed... More

My husband and I reluctantly booked a guest house as most of the hotels in the area were either too pricey or booked up. Calidonia offered on site parking and breakfast, which was a lovely surprise and is situated right near the sea front. We were welcomed by a lovely couple and the room had free wifi and was well...

We are sorry that you did not approve of payment on arrival. For what it is worth we do not like to do it either. We have been in the business for over 14 years and not everyone is honest! We made this decision to take payment on arrival due to people doing a 'runner' plus other misdemeanours that have... More

I stayed with Karen and Dave for about 9 weeks on and off from March to June. They were a really sweet couple who treated me wonderfully. They made up my bed/room the way I preferred, they remembered how I liked my breakfast every morning. It was nice staying with friendly people at a time when I was spending a... More

We had the pleasure of staying here as part of a friends wedding party. Although small, the facilities were spotless and the attention of the owners (Dave and Karen) great. Our room was super clean and provided all that we needed. Breakfast was promptly served and had a fair choice - although I would welcome more breakfast 'traditionals' such as... More

Many thanks for your review. Our car park situated at the rear of the house is accessible by a narrow back lane and can take up to 6 vehicles which can include transit vans etc. We do offer a full English breakfast including a sausage but no black pudding. More

Would stay again, yes. We visit Plymouth once a year for a memorial service on the Hoe, we will come again. Plymouth has a fabulous position overlooking the sea, lots of historical interest about the history of our country. Recommend Chloe's restaurant close by.
