We booked in after finding out the family were also staying here, whilst usually opting for main chain hotels we were unsure what to expect. We arrived and found directions easy and parked easily. Karla greeted us and showed us to a lovely... More

I was booked into this guest house for two nights, whilst working in Plymouth for a few days, after complaining of an unpleasant stay at a large hotel chain the previous night on a busy main road and no parking. Great position near the seafront with free overnight parking in the road, or at the back, off-street. Very clean, quiet... More

We were welcomed by Carla & our arrival was a smooth process, much appreciated. Parking was available for us at the side & back of the house. (we were travelling with our family & dog) Location was ideal for us as we were wanting to walk into the town centre. Rooms were bright, clean & comfortable with lovely soft towels.... More

Great location, great hospitality thanks to Maria & Carla. My husband & I want to thank you for adding to a truly unforgettable stay. Loved the breakfast. Only problem; We could not work the shower! Found this too hot or too cold. Even with this, would recommend this place to anyone; will return to stay here. :):)

Personal and friendly welcome by Carla on arrival and full explanation of things to do in Plymouth. Great location just near West Hoe with a pleasant walk to the main attractions. Room and bathroom spotlessly clean and free wifi. Good selection at breakfast. Re parking there are a couple of spaces at the rear of the hotel and then on-street... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Carla makes you feel very much at home and was of great assistance giving us directions for places we wanted to see. We stayed 2 nights Sept. 19th & 20th, 2013. The location is ideal for walking through the Barbican & town center is not far off. Breakfast was fantastic and... More

This was our first stay at Edgcumbe Guest House and we weren't disappointed. Our room, (Number 7) was spacious, clean and very comfortable, the bathroom was of a generous size, had a decent sized shower and soaps, shower gel, shampoo and a shower cap was provided along with supersoft, white fluffy towels. The Guest House was well located, with off... More
