Nice B&B, good location but bad insulation. We could clearly hear people's steps in the room above, the kid next door calling for his mum and people banging the doors in the building. Bathroom needed a good dusting. Breakfast was good and generous,

Stayed for one night and the Rusty Anchor gave us everything we needed. Really accommodating owner, great breakfast and good room facilities. Right next to the sea front and Plymouth Hoe and parking was free on the streets over night, which was a bonus.

Our first floor room at the front was compact, functional, neat and very clean. The host Jan was friendly and helpful. The fresh breakfast was served in... More

First impressions were mediocre. Landlady was busy with someone else, and a bit short when we arrived. Slight smell of cats pee in entrance hall (cat lives in house). Room was pleasant enough, had what we needed. Tea bags were a bit tasteless. Sea view from our room. Rooms were adjoined, with a double and a single (with a camping... More

The room was spotless, the beds comfy and the landlady jan was a great host and cooked a fab English breakfast! ( even the dogs got a sausage) My partners daughter has just... More

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

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
