Booked this as a last minute trip. The placement is ideal for The Hoe, The Barbican and the town. Parking is very limited at the rear but that is true of virtually the whole of Plymouth, where most places you have to park on the street. The room we had was not the largest room but it had all the... More

I stayed here this last week whilst working in Plymouth. My stay was very comfortable. I travelled home , not realising until I had arrived at my destination that I had left some ear phones in a pouch. These are vital to me as I have sensitive ears. I phone Nigel the Proprietor after nine that evening to see if... More

I stayed here with two friends late in September 2014. Nigel, the owner, was helpful from the moment we arrived with our excessive amounts of luggage, directing us to a safe parking spot so we could unload the car. We were very pleased with the room, which had a view out to sea. The hotel is in a central location... More

We booked on spec as our b&b did not have any room for extra days. We were given the attic room turned out to be lovely and spacious as family room. Not for the faint hearted as 5 flights of stairs and last few quite tight but we coped and were given choice to view before booking. Enjoy suite handy.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at Christmas. A great location on the Hoe a short walking distance to the sea front and shopping centre. The owner Nigel was very friendly and helpful. The cooked breakfast was ok but a bit on the small side. As for the rooms they are in serious need of modernisation. An old style portable tv... More

My mother and I shared a room here when visiting my daughter at Plymouth Uni. I understand that most rooms are now en suite. This B&B is well positioned close to the Hoe, and allows small dogs to stay. Rooms are simple, and short on space, breakfast was fine, with plenty of tea available, plenty of hot water. Nigel and...

We had a pleasant stay here as we toured SW England. Nigel was very helpful and his breakfasts were good. The property is an old building with lots of charm. The room itself was very comfortable. Parking was at a premium but Nigel helped us to find street parking nearby as his parking area is small and was full at... More
