Good welcome, good clean rooms, good breakfast cooked to order the following day. Bed was firm, but the way I like it. Everything else in the room you would expect plus fast free WiFi. They have a private car park which I didn't notice, parking on the street is a bit hit and miss, so I recommend you try to... More

Booked the Caledonia as it was within 100 yards of the register office where we got married on Thu 27th Oct. Dave and Karen who run the Caledonia were so so accommodating and friendly.....nothing was ever too much trouble, it was like staying with family! Breakfast was always excellent and really well cooked and presented. Rooms were compact but perfectly... More

We are really pleased that we helped in our little way to start your married life together with our added touches. It was the least we could do when we found out it was your 'Big day'. Good luck to you both for the future and we look forward to seeing sometime in the future. More

I stayed here for a week. While I worked in Plymouth and I could not wish for somewhere better. I could walk to work as it was 3 min from the Hoe where I was working. The owners where very friendly and helpful. And I will stay there again when working in Plymouth again.

Due to arriving early and the guest house owner being out they had contacted us before we had even arrived to tell us a code for the secure box which would have our keys to the guest house and room in. This was so thoughtful. When we did get into the room they had thought of everything including a small... More

One again we stayed at this wonderful guest house. As usual our room (no 1) was immaculately clean and fresh and the addition of some handrails in the little en suite were a great help to my disabled mum. Breakfast was lovely with a good choice of food and drinks and our hosts Karen and David as always, went above... More

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Apologies for the 'winter duvet' but the vagaries of a British summer makes it difficult to judge. Summer duvets have been made on the beds. 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...
