Friendly, helpful (we were having bit of a holiday 'predicament'!), good family room, good with children, great breakfast, good location, interesting locality, very close to Brittany Ferry terminal - but do give yourself time to explore the local area too.

I was very disappointed with the landlady's attitude towards the paramedic and myself as she was very unsympathetic and appeared to be only interested in the fellow guests not being disturbed. Not good.

Even though we were a bit disappointed about Plymouth - a city without soul, our B&B was lovely - good location, parking possibilities and just a short walk from the down - town. Our host was friendly and knowledgeable and shared good tips.

This was my second stay at the Edgcumbe Guest House and I must say it is no fluke that the standards Carla and her staff set are to say the least exemplary The attention to detail is outstanding. The rooms are clean and spacious and the breakfast is second to none. I would have no hesitation in recommending Edgcumbe as... More

Edgcumbe Guest House is in a great location a stone's throw from the sea front, is clean, quiet and the host is very friendly and accommodating. There are many places to eat close by and the Barbican is a short walk away. The community bus goes straight to the city centre for shopping.

My wife and I stayed there in June 2015 and are glad we did. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived until our departure. The room was terrific, spacious and with a great view. The breakfasts were excellent and very tasty. I would recommend anyone to stay here if they get the opportunity. Brilliant guesthouse... More

Have been staying at the Edgecombe for nearly two years now. Carla has been brilliant, even when I turn up without a booking. Always cheerful and welcoming, as is her staff. The rooms are good and the breakfast, great, especially the freshly cooked full English. Would recommend as a great place to stay not only for business but to base... More
