This hotel is good for a 3 star, you have to realise what you are getting for your money. We paid £55 for a large room with an ensuite. The owners were friendly and gave me a permit for £2 which lasted all day until 10am the next morning. The decor is dated and everything is a little tired but... More

Very friendly owner who was helpful about local knowledge. This guest house is on the Hoe and 2 minutes from the Barbican. Also about 5 minutes into the main shopping centre. Our room was at the back and very quiet. There is a pub next door which is handy for a quick meal. No breakfast is offered but there is... More

This basic guest house is all you need for an overnight stay, comfy bed with very good quality bedding, no breakfast is offered which is ideal, no having to get up in case you miss it and the location of The George means there are plenty of places nearby to eat. Our room was clean, as was the tiny bathroom... More

We were very happy with the accomodation provided which overlooked the park opposite. We stayed in a very cosy, warm and clean room and the location was excellent, near the city centre and Barbican. The host was very polite and helpful.

Was unfortunate enough to book a room here, after being let down at the last minute by another guest house nearby. Very run down and dirty, wallpaper peeling of the walls, no heating working - in November! Had I been told this on booking I would have gone elsewhere, but it wasn't mentioned. Neither was I told the kitchen was... More

We stayed here as a last minute venue. Upon arrival it was a little chaotic trying to gain access but after a few minutes an apologetic proprietor answered the door... Entering the guesthouse was a pleasing clean smell (air freshner?). We were taken up to our room on the first floor which looked out onto The Hoe. Our room was... More

We have stayed at the George now a couple of times and will be returning later this year. We were looking for somewhere to stay while visiting our daughter and the B&B happened to be very close to her hall of residence. It overlooks the Hoe gardens and is a short walk to the city centre as well as the... More

Me and my step son visited this wonderful B&B while we were down in Plymouth visiting my son who is in the Navay! We may have only stayed 2 night but we most certainly enjoyed it and was the best place I have stayed. The price for the 2 nights was very cheap and we had our breakfast included in... More
