I was having an eight day holiday travelling around Devon and Cornwall by train and needed somewhere central to base myself. The single room that I stayed in was perfect for all my needs during my stay. Tea and coffee were supplied and there was a kettle to make my own drinks. There was a television with a very good...

Arrived very late and left very early so can't comment on service or breakfast. It was cheap compared to other city venues, but dated rooms. There is better value to be had if you stay over the river in Torpoint in my experience.

I stayed for one night on business. Everything about this place was average, also the bed was uncomfortable, and the pillows were hard. The fried breakfast was greasy. The location is good though. I will not stay here again.

I'd booked a single room with shared toilet/bathroom, but when I arrived, I was pleased to find I'd been upgraded to an en-suite. The room was comfortable and clean. The property is only a short walk from a rocky coast and a short climb leads onto The Hoe. Breakfast was OK, but nothing special, though it filled me up. I... More
