We were visiting family in Plymouth and needed a short notice B&B for 2 adults and our dog. We called a few but Jan, at the Rusty Anchor, was so friendly we made our choice without seeing it. We arrived to a very warm welcome and a very helpful host. Payment was sorted instantly and Jan also helped sort out... More

Our party of five, 2 teenagers, 2 adults and a dog stayed for one night. We found the room more than adequate, lovely quilts to snuggle up in. Breakfast was freshly cooked and very nice. We would definitely stay again. Thanks Jan

I paid £197 to stay 3 nights in this guest house. The room was fine, although had a distinct smell of dog which I wouldn't complain about as I had mine with me, but other guests could find offensive. Two of us staying 3 nights and only once did one of us have breakfast, which was adequate. The noise from... More

Unfortunately my travelling partner and myself didn't get to stay at the Rusty Anchor. WE were travelling back from London on coaches and hit horrible delays and both our phones died because we had to use them all day to supervise 14o students on a field trip. So i was unable to contact the B&B. As a result when we... More

The room was adequate and clean, the shower small but hot. No shower gels provided but for £85 a night, I was expecting a slap up, cooked breakfast and approached the nicely laid out room with enthusiasm. Jan, the landlady, was busy in the breakfast room serving a table of five. She brought us toast while we were waiting but... More

The guest house was excellent value for money. Booked one night stay with friends. The room itself was clean and tidy. Jen, the caretaker of the house was very helpful and cooked us breakfast and topped up without any hesitation. It is peaceful, easy to locate and is highly recommended for anyone staying in Plymouth.

My experience is very similar to a February review. I booked online and paid in full earlier this year for a twin and a single room for a one night stay in May as my companions and I travelled along the SW coast path. The day before I received a voicemail message from the landlady in which she said as... More

The occasion was unfortunately to attend a funeral of a former colleague of my Mum, but it didn't stop me from enjoying my stay. The hostess was a lovely lady and made me feel very welcome from the start, with treats and things. Just around the corner was a nice park to run around in and the Hoe, which was... More

Such a lovely welcome from the host. She was also lovely with our dog Dilly, whom she made to feel welcome too. The bedroom was light and airy, a family room, a double, with adjoining single bedroom, with a dividing door. The room was ensuite, with a great shower. Breakfast was cooked freshly on our arrival to the dining room... More
