Excellent B&B accommodation, stayed during the week for over seven months while working in Plymouth. Janet and John are extremely welcoming and helpful when having to make changes at short notice. Rooms and beds very comfortable and location excellent for city and to stroll up to the Hoe. Cannot recommend more highly

I prefer to stay in a large hotel with all the extras (restaurants, bar, pool etc). However Plymouth this time (which is short on Hotel spaces) had nothing to offer. I telephoned this Guest House and spoke to a very helpful lady who was able to offer a room. I hate to admit that I don't like Guest Houses (having... More

Thank you for taking the time to post such an interesting review of your stay with us here at 'The Brittany'. Very pleased to see that your opinion of Guest Houses has changed a little.

John and Janet continue to provide first class accommodation. The room was comfortable and quiet, the hospitality very friendly as usual, and the breakfasts hearty and tasty. Great location near the Hoe, and not far from the Barbican, the central shopping area, and Royal William Yard. Very walkable to all. Nothing at all to complain about, in fact quite the... More

Another lovely stay at The Brittany. The hospitality again first class and this is the reason we return at least twice a year. The breakfasts are more than "adequate" so not sure what Trinny46 thinks full english breakfast consists of as it is well cooked and fresh and kept us full for the rest of the day!! There as never...

One of the nicest B&Bs we have stayed in. We received a lovely warm welcome from the owners and the room was spacious and spotlessly clean. The bed was extremely comfortable! Breakfasts were also very good, with really fresh free range eggs. We had to get away quite early on our first morning, but our hosts made sure we didn't... More

I booked this B&B based on the large number of 'excellent' reviews and found it to be just a bit better than average so a 3.5 rating if that was possible. The B&B is perfectly acceptable, the room was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The breakfast was adequate, rather than brilliant. Parking at the rear was very tight and... More

Stayed in Plymouth over bank holiday wkend and were fortunate to get a late booking here due to another cancellation. We couldn't have asked for better: pleasant and welcoming hosts, very clean and bright rooms with ensuite, great and powerful hot showers, top class breakfast each morning and perfect location. Would be hard pushed to find better at the reasonable... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the Brittany Guest House in Plymouth and if we ever get back, we most certainly will try to stay here again with Janet and John. Located about a five minute walk from the Plymouth Hoe and 10 minutes to the City Center makes it the ideal location. In addition, a spotless and very comfortable... More

Great location, right next to Plymouth Hoe so you can take a walk and relax in the fresh sea air at anytime. Top quality service, spotless rooms and a quality breakfast. If I had an issue, the staff were very helpful and considerate. Will definitely be using this hotel again. Best one I've used in Plymouth.
