I stayed for 2 nights, I was visiting family in Plympton.
Considering I was spending all day in Plympton and not heading back to the hotel until late at night, it was very good for loaction. Just two juntions away (5 min drive) on the A38 from my familiy and literally right on the turn off.
I was given Room 3 twin room in what looked like a stable block. The room was spotlessly clean, with tea and coffee facilities, tv and wardrobes etc.. The bathroom was your basic white bathroom, the shower was strong and hot, so no complaints. The room was a bit tired and the furnishings were a bit old fashioned, but did the job!
I had breakfast both days, full english the first day, which came out quick and it was nice and fresh and hot. The second day I had the continental option and I found it just as filling as the full english the day before.
It didn't seem like a busy hotel, could be why the room was a bit tired. I think most people wishing to stay in Plympton tend to stay in the Premiere Inn which is what I have done in the past. However, as the pennies were short this month, this hotel was fine for a budget subsitute.
Overall, this hotel was very clean and has everything you need for a quick weekend; comfortable bed and hot shower. But it could to with a little TLC and a bit of updating in the guest rooms.
Would I stay here again? ... For what I needed, somewhere to crash whilst visiting my family, yes I would. But I don't think I would stay here for a nice long weekend break away.
