The friendliest customer service
Nov 2021
Just wanted to say thank you to Plymouth Yacht Haven staff for being so completely friendly and helpful, in particular Phil for finding us a berth at short notice (the only one available in the SW), Tim for information on arrival and ensuring our safety at night, and Denise for her big friendly welcome to her sparkly showers. What a welcome indeed! There are others I should mention but the whole team go out of their way to help you. Most are experienced sailors themselves and understand what may be needed. We couldn't have wished for more. Thank you all.

Just a short walk from my digs in Turnchapel.

Very friendly and professional staff, with a sense of humour. Well kept local ales.

Food a bit pricey for what it is, but it's a marina....

Faces east , so a great location for a sundowner and open to the public.

The finest marina showers in south west England!
Jan 2019 • Solo
Plymouth Yacht Haven is an ideal place to keep a boat to cruise the South West and Brittany. The marina is well protected from almost all directions, particularly from gales driving in from the Atlantic; it is only somewhat exposed to north east winds. Marina staff are friendly and helpful, the boatyard has a powerful 70-tonne hoist and the Mount Batten Boathouse chandlery on site is very well stocked. Above all, the washrooms have the finest marina showers in the South West: plenty of room, reliable hot water and underfloor heating, and kept spotlessly clean.

Plymouth is a convenient place to keep a boat because it's on the main train line to London and easily accessible by road. Mount Batten is quieter than the centre of the city but only a few minutes away on the ferry which runs every half hour. There are three outstanding places to eat very close the Plymouth Yacht Haven: for lunches, the Galley Kitchen in the old RAF flying boat hangars and for dinner, the Clovelly Bay Inn up the road and The Bridge in the marina itself.

Return to Friendly and helpful Marina
Aug 2017 • Family
We've just returned home after another two weeks at the marina, with our sports boat. Still very helpful, still very friendly and the facilities are clean and well kept. Even during the influx of the additional boats for the Rolex Fastnet Race. This was great to see. After reading other reviews I would also add - if your on a marina normally your main interest, is going to be boats! The marina seems to be the most sheltered from the swells coming in. And only a short ferry ride to the other side (visit the Fisherman's Arms - great meal). So I'd say the best location for your boat. We went to Cornwall and Salcombe by boat. Did some fishing. Kayaking and played in the donut. Great holiday.

Hi Sasym, Thanks for your kind review of Plymouth Yacht Haven. Sounds like you had a fabulous holiday! And thank you for your comments about our staff and facilities - we did our upmost during the Fastnet Week to ensure the facilities remained exclusively for berth holders and were always clean! Kind Regards Jonathan Yacht Havens

The best marina!
May 2017 • Couples
We have been berth holders here for several years and found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Today was no exception. Our keys to the boat, house and car fell in the water. The office were very sympathetic and said I was lucky as a diver was out finding a wallet and could come to us next. He did and he found our keys.

Ok if you are into yachts.

Theoretically this should be a lovely place to visit. However, in reality it's a bit boring.
Walk to the pier and watch the fishermen and boats, climb up to the tower for the view and historic interest rather than tramp around a marina

August visit
Aug 2016 • Couples
We were staying with friends who had a temporary mooring here. It is ideally situated with at least four places to eat within walking distance. The ferry links to the Barbican and from there you can catch other ferries to Cornwall and Royal William Yard. For food shopping there is a Morrisons and a Lidl within a 10 minutes drive before the Laira Bridge and the City Centre. It is easy to get a temporary mooring at one of the other marinas in the area and the Royal William Yard if you want to eat out or just visit. Parking is always a problem in Plymouth City centre in the summer so I don't know why anyone would want to take their car when you can go by boat. The facilities at the marina are excellent and the staff very helpful.

Fantastic Marina, great facilities and really helpful staff
Aug 2016 • Family
We visited the marina with our sports boat for two weeks in August. Having stayed at other marina's in the south west, this is by far our families favourite. When we arrived all staff were extremely helpful. We used our boat nearly everyday of our holiday, there are lot's of places to visit by boat. The facilities are clean and well maintained. The Bridge Pub at the marina does a lovely breakfast. It seems popular with all visitors. You can also get a ferry over to the city for shopping and dinner. We went out on the boat to see the fireworks - nights to remember. Hope to come back soon.

Poor service left bad taste in mouth
Jul 2016 • Couples
Having visited Plymouth Yacht Haven many times in the past we found this trip very disappointing. Visiting by yacht we were initially directed to a berth that was a) far too short to accommodate us easily and b) was inaccessible due to the low tide. There were numerous larger and easily accessible berths available so not a very welcoming start although we were eventually directed onto a suitable berth. The facilities at the marina are good, the showers are lovely, newly refurbished and very clean and the Bridge Bistro food is excellent. On leaving the marina early the next morning we were contacted by Plymouth Harbour Authority as the marina had reported us for not paying our berthing fees. These had been paid on our arrival and after a phone conversation this was confirmed but the confusion could easily have been avoided if the marina staff had made a check. All in all this stay left us with a bad taste in our mouth and for a marina that advertises itself as the most friendly in the area it did not live up to this billing! Marinas get good fees from their visitors so should treat them respectfully.

Dear Julie T, Thank for your review and we’re sorry to hear that our service to you hasn’t been up to the standards you have come to expect from us. We do pride ourselves on delivering excellent customer service but we agree that on this occasion we didn’t take the best steps to a) direct you onto a suitable berth and b) resolve the situation suitably the following morning. We sincerely apologise for the distress caused. We’d like to invite you back to Plymouth Yacht Haven for a complementary night berthing so we can prove this was a one-off. Just call our Marina Office to book your stay – 01752 404231. On a separate note, we’re delighted to read your kind comments about our facilities and the Bridge Restaurant. We hope to welcome you back to Plymouth Yacht Haven soon, Kind Regards, Jonathan
