“Lovely B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2010

I recently stayed at Alma with my family and enjoyed my stay from America. The rooms were nice and clean. The breakfast was fresh and made to order. Paula was a charming host and made us feel very welcomed. I would recommend this guest house to anyone.

We arrived after a 4 1/2 hour drive in a monsoon rain storm. Paula greeted us at the door. She gave us a large room which was beautiful. Paula pointed us in the direction of a really nice pub where we could get something to eat. The only drawback is you could hear every sound like being in you own home, doors slamming, toilets flushing etc. But that is what home from home is lol. I would more than likely stay here again when I am in Plymouth. We are here for Sara's passing out parade. Thankyou Paula. Suzanne Pegg, Northampton.

yet another comfortable b+b in Plymouth - we struck lucky again! arriving from a late ferry we got a warm welcome and a comfy and large room. breakfast was plentiful and Paula was very attentive. An appearance by the pet tortoise made for a good talking point before we left!

I have stayed with Tony & Paula at Alma Lodge many times during the last 3 years. and they are always the first ones i call when i have to visit Plymouth. They are a wonderful couple and have always made me feel truely welcome. They provide a first class home from home service.

I would recommend this Guest House to anyone. Paula and Tony are welcoming and friendly and I felt totally relaxed there. I hope to return to Plymouth and will certainly be staying at the Alma. The room was clean and the beds great. Although it is a 20 min walk from the centre of town, any nearer and parking becomes a nightmare. We walked past many of the other guest houses we had looked at on the net and most had no parking available. It is convenient for the station, several buses run right past the front door and cabs are reasonably priced. If you want to drive into town there are plenty of car parks. While there we met a couple that return every year for 3 weeks - says it all really.

We stayed at Alma Lodge Guest House for a long weekend based on the reviews posted on this site. We were not disappointed. The guest house is run by a lovely lady Paula, who was warm and friendly yet totally professional. The guest house is comfortable with a relaxed atmosphere, it is clean and well kept and the bed was superb. The breakfast was cooked by Tony (he did a fantastic job), with a good choice of cereals, juices etc.
Don't be put off that the guest house is on a main road, the traffic noise is at a minimum and the plus side is that it is on several bus routes. The walk into town took about 15 - 20 minutes and you could probably do with the exercise after Tony's breakfast.
Would definately stay at the Alma Lodge next time I'm in Plymouth
