Arrived very late and left very early so can't comment on service or breakfast. It was cheap compared to other city venues, but dated rooms. There is better value to be had if you stay over the river in Torpoint in my experience.

I stayed for one night on business. Everything about this place was average, also the bed was uncomfortable, and the pillows were hard. The fried breakfast was greasy. The location is good though. I will not stay here again.

I'd booked a single room with shared toilet/bathroom, but when I arrived, I was pleased to find I'd been upgraded to an en-suite. The room was comfortable and clean. The property is only a short walk from a rocky coast and a short climb leads onto The Hoe. Breakfast was OK, but nothing special, though it filled me up. I... More

We had a one night stay here for my husband's sisters graduation. The location is good. Not far from the water front and not to much of a walk from the city centre. We had an en suite room which was ok. The room was basic with tea and coffee making facilities and the bed was clean and comfortable. The... More

We arrived late at night after a long ferry trip , and received a very warm welcome. The two bedrooms were spotlessly clean, and the owner went out of her way to make us comfortable. If you are looking for a B and B with ultra modern, sleek decor, and a sniffy, neutral atmosphere, then this Bed and Breakfast isn't... More

This accommodation has to pass a health check this month; it needs to! Highly priced for what was on offer. Friendliness does not count for a lot in the 21st Century, when the state of the place is jaded, dull and questionably clean.(Carting luggage up 3 flights of stairs after a long journey is not awe inspiring): I certainly don't...
