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.

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.

Driving through Plymouth Hoe after collecting our hire car we saw the Rusty Anchor had a view of the harbour, was close to restaurants. We walked in to the smell of cake cooking. 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
