“Very pleasant hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2010

Stayed for 1 night booked via laterooms. Standard Double with breakfast included, excellent value. Attentive service but as it was a Sunday night this was to be expected as there were few other residents.
I believe the hotel has recently changed ownership, there seems to be no appreciable change since our last stay 12 months ago. No complaints at all, English breakfast cooked to order and of very good quality.

Good quality hotel, esp for the Plymouth area. Will be returning.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2010

This was our second stay in this hotel. On arrival the room was cold although the bathroom was pleasantly warm. We found the radiator thermostat valves and the check valves to be shut off - and there was still frost on the ground! Only one dressing gown was provided for a double room 'we find they are only used by the ladies' . No fresh milk, no tissues, some toiletries missing many other brochure misprints and errors . As we had problems getting a restaurant table on a previous stay we had requested dinner at 8pm on both nights which was confirmed by e-mail. Despite a telephone check of our booking the day before arrival and two meals in the restaurant we were not warned that our Tuesday evening meal would be in a cramped annex with uncomfortable chairs as there was a block booking of the restaurant. Later that evening we noticed a strong smell of drains from the bathroom - but able to be blocked by turning off the fan and closing the door.
The following morning when we checked out at 0900 no duty manager was available to comment. We were promised a telephone call from the owner. No call and an e-mail reminder was allegedly delayed as it was in their junk mail! 5 days later a manager telephoned. He did not appear to understand the basics of customer satisfaction: an apology would have been better than his attempts to brush off or minimise my comments.
The food was good though!
A shame - this could be a lovely place if properly managed by its owners

We stayed at the hotel for a birthday weekend. The feel of the hotel was lovely and the staff extremely helpful and very welcoming. The bar area has a lovely atmosphere with with tasteful decor (Christmas decorations up already). The food was of a good quality and breakfast was a relaxed affair . The only slight downside was that our room was above the kitchens and they like to have their music on fairly loud early in the morning. However when we phoned reception it was turned down immediately. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

We married at another venue on the 8th September and held our evening reception on the 17th September at St Elizabeths
We had 140 guests, 28 of which also stayed the night in the hotel.
The evening was amazing, the food was excellent, service fantastic and venue simply stunning.
Everyone has a wonderful evening, myself and my husband loved every minute.
I'd highly recommend St Elizabeth's to anyone who is planning on getting married. Nothing was too much trouble for this family run business.

This was a stop over on a trip back from Cornwall to London and booked through late rooms. We were very pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The room, especially the bathroom was very good- especially enjoyed the roll top bath and waterfall shower.

Just don't have dinner at the pub across the road- monumentally terrible!

We had a superb stay for long weekend. The hotel has very modern fixtures and fittings all to a very high standard, and the staff are superb, the bar/ restuarant manager in particular really looked after us. Whether you are looking to chill and read the sunday papers over coffee or sit in the bar and chat this place has it all. The only negatives I would say is that some new carpets wouldnt go amiss and on our last morning there the owners daughter (I think) was in charge of breakfast which took ages! We intended to eat in the restuarant a couple of times but the food was so good and such good value (dont believe the reports otherwise!) that weate there every evening!

I had the castle room and was impressed by the size and quality and how quiet it was at night .Being on a budget i had dinner at the pub across the road . I can recommend this hotel as a base for exploring the Devon and Dartmoor region . The space , grace and class of this hotel really met my expectations of what a true boutique english hotel ought to be.
