We have been using this friendly, family run hotel since we stumbled (luckily for us) across The Imperial when our daughter first started at Plymouth University in 2013. This weekend was our third stay and we've also booked it for my mum when she came to visit her granddaughter. We now book direct and always feel very welcome. The location... More

A friend booked three rooms here for a Saturday night - we were a party of three couples and paid £112 per couple. The location was ideal for us and although we had to pay to park on the road we were aware this was a possibility beforehand. On arrival we were told that the hotel was full, they were... More

We received a warm welcome and given a brief rundown on what we could see and do whilst in Plymouth. We were also given a City map with the Hotel Location marked. Next, we were shown to our room which turned out to be an apartment for two. All parts were shown to us and where applicable how to use.... More

Stayed one night, had a single room ground floor for my mum and double upstairs for me and daughter. Wifi was great, free toiletries good quality including shoe shine, shower worked well, breakfast top notch including fresh fruit, nothing to complain about in fact. Would highly recommend.

Stayed for one night but wanted to move in and live there! Lovely staff and excellent breakfast. Great location right next to the hoe and the town and plenty of off road parking. We booked a double room but ended up in the suite and it was really lovely and huge! Extremely clean and cane with everything we needed and... More

This was an excellent place to stay, with very friendly staff. They even lent me an umbrella to use for the day as it was raining! There were lots of options for breakfast and what I chose was delicious.

Our second home in Plymouth. Perhaps not Britains funniest town, but a fantastic play to stay for exkursions into lovely Cornwall. Look no further if You are planing on staying in this town! Free parking as well.

I felt really welcome the minute I stepped into this quaint guest house. Louise showed me around the building and helped me with my suitcase. The room was very clean and the bed had a very comfortable mattress. The location is very quiet, close enough to the sea and only a 5-10min walk to any central shops/restaurants and the Barbican....
