Found the Mariners via Tripadvisor and it justified the plaudits. One could look for no more in a budget place to stay in Plymouth. The place is excellently located half a mile or so from the city centre, just a pleasant walk from the upper Hoe, and within direct sight of the Brittany ferry. My single room was clean and... More

1st time visit to Mariners Comfortable bed in a cluttered twin room, single occupancy, and the room looked unwelcoming as the 2nd bed wasn't made up. Small but adequate en suite, although the 'shower' was more like a drizzle. Breakfast ok, Not a particularly warm welcome but I later discovered this was not the owner of the B and B... More

I was travelling to catch up with a friend so travelled solo. Booked the single room. Was small but perfect for my needs. Spotlessly clean. Good value for money. Breakfast excellent. Hosts friendly but not intrusive. Central location, walking distance to the beautiful hoe. Would recommend.

I booked on Laterooms the week before staying at the Mariners. I booked based on the reviews (knowing that the one negative comment was most likely a nit picker!) and was not disappointed. Elaine and Steve are friendly but not intrusive, the accommodation was spacious and beautifully clean. I was happy to find tea/coffee facilities in the room :) Breakfast... More

I have stayed in a fair few B&B's in my time and I always get a warm greeting from the owners, well that has changed. From the off the lady who owned the place gave the sense that she did not want me there. She was rude and patronising. Not once did she try and engage in conversation, well not... More

English guest houses get a bad press for being dated and expensive. Mariners bucks the trend. Its personal and friendly, clean and tidy, breakfast is excellent and its within walking distance of everything you want in Plymouth. Can't fault it.

A great start to the day began with Julie serving breakfast with her infectious and quirky interaction with guests. Comfortable, cheerful, very clean, with a great selection at breakfast. Would definitely recommend the Mariners.

We have been to Mariners Guesthouse ( or Elaine's Hotel, as my eldest daughter calls it ) a number of times now, and having been to, and viewed a number of hotels in Plymouth, the Mariners is definately THE BEST. It is always a delight to stop here, from the first class hospitality of Elaine and Steve to the fantastic... More
