We stayed hear on New Years Eve, the room was basically clean although small. The ensuite was tired and smelt musty although adequate for one night. The hostess was very nice and looked after us well, the breakfast was what you would expect at this price bracket and reasonable, that said we were not offered orange juice or cereals all... More

I have stayed here twice, once on my own a year ago and this month with my teenaged son. Lovely friendly and welcoming hostess. Everything clean and comfy beds. We came down to visit my daughter who lives in Plymouth and she was made welcome too when arriving during breakfast time. We will be back!

I was staying overnight in Plymouth on business and needed a B&B close to Plymouth Hoe. The Rusty Anchor fitted the bill and was very near the sea front. On arrival I received a very warm welcome from Jan the landlady. My first floor room at the rear was a good size, plain, comfortable and clean. The Full English breakfast... More

We arrived at the Rusty Anchor B&B by taxi from the Plymouth Train Station around 730pm. The front door was locked but our hostess Jan promptly answered the bell and checked us in quickly and efficiently. Our rooms were upstairs, very simple, clean, neat and the entire place was quite tidy! For our supper, she directed us to a wonderful... More

We had a lovely stay. The room was clean, tidy and just the right size with a good shower and good clean bed. It was lovely for our dog who had his own breakfast from Jan who was a fantastic host. The hotel is seconds from great views of the sea front and a short walk into town. We loved... More

We stayed in the family room. It had everything we needed and was very clean. The room had a double bed & storage, lamps, TV & tea coffee. There were two doors that closed off an additional room with bunk beds, storage & TV. Both rooms had a window with a sea view. It was perfect as we closed the... More

We try and stay in B and B's to support the locals as in the past we have found some excellent B and B's but this is not one. The room was small and the en-suite crammed into a cupboard. The bed was held up on one side with a wooden block. We could hear the conversations of the other... More

We had a family room that’s was clean and spacious. The cooked breakfast was tasty and all for a great price. It was just down the road from Smeatons Tower. Great place to stay! I would stay here again.
