We stayed here as it is just across the road from the Plymouth Pavillions, we were seeing Billy Connolly so decided it would be perfect and it was, lovely helpful staff, lovely decor, the bar food was really good.

We also visited the gin distllery, the hotel has a discount set up so you get the tickets as a reduced rate, the night porter kindly printed off details about the distllery and gave us details and put under our door, as I said staff really helpful.

The rooms lovely and clean, the breakfast which was included in the room price was great, buffett or hot, I would recommend the hot cooked as it was great very good portions and great service. We will go back as it is also so central for shopping and sight seeing. Lovely lovely hotel.

Having booked into this hotel due to our normal choice being fully booked i was not over impressed, the location is pretty good and the room was ok, bathroom was nice and big but a bit dated. Not much atmosphere in the hotel, and i dont think i saw one guest in the hotel bar. I believe there are some rooms that have been updated, so maybe if we stay there again we would give that one a go!

Room Tip: ask for one of the new rooms

Our over-night stay was in the very impressive Tower Suite which has views over Plymouth Sound and the City with the added use of a telescope! We decided to book in at The Duke of Cornwall as we had tickets for the Katherin Jenkins show at The Pavillions which is right opposite the hotel so why rush down for the show and then home again afterwards when you can arrive early have a drink and something to eat from the varied Bar Menu before just walking over the road to the show and back again afterwards. After a very comfortable nights sleep in The Tower it is down to enjoy breakfast where you are spoilt for choice! We have stayed at The Duke of Cornwall before and have always been very pleased with our rooms, their pleasant and friendly staff and the food. Since out last stay we noticed the new wonderfully rich deep blue and gold carpet to the entrance and reception, the lounge, bar up the very impressive grand staircase and to the magnificant ballroom which this time was laid up for a function - we had to have a peep - it was very impressive - not many hotels these days have a ballroom and certainly not one of this size. So next time you think of attending something at either The Pavillions or The Theatre Royal or a stay in Plymouth spoil yourselves and book in at The Duke of Cornwall.

Room 416 is possibly the most fantastic hotel room I have stayed in! It is huge with fantastic decor and carpet, 2 steps down to a lounge area. Clearly newly decorated - what wonderful wallpaper! Very contemporary Style bathroom with waterfall taps and one huge square shower head! The main staircase is spectacular! At breakfast we were greeted by a wonderful lady who instantly got the measure of our group! Very good choice from the menu. If I have to stay in a hotel in Plymouth again this is the only one for me!! I only hope all rooms are as good as 416!

We decided to stay in the Duke of Cornwall because it is in a good location and we like the older style feel of hotels.

Check in was smooth but i didnt feel like the receptionist had much of an idea on dinner when we queried about it.

Room: Newly refurbished. Wallpaper was pink with flowers which wasnt to our personal taste but it was clean and fresh. Not a very good view. (it was the carpark) but it didnt bother us. Good size bathroom with a separate bath and shower. Nice flat screen tv and a digital clock. Beds were comfy.

Food: Dinner included in the price up to the value of £21. However, we were free to mix and match if we had less expensive items. Had a lovely 3 course meal. I asked if one part of the meal was vegetarian and although not sure the waitress kindly checked and even checked if the cheese contained rennet. Very impressed.
The beetroot risotto was gorgeous and i particularly enjoyed the halloumi and med veg main. They ran out of the ice cream that i asked for but i was able to pick another flavour with no bother. The atmosphere was lovely in the ballroom, nice music playing and the waiter and waitress were very attentive but not pushy. A good mix.
Breakfast was a combination of continental and choice of a hot item. Although there was no vegetarian option for the cooked breakfast i was able to pick and choose what i wanted from the main breakfast. Very nice toast, tea and cereal also.

We went out in the evening and as stated the doors are locked. I think it is a good idea and some drunks might stumble in through the rotating doors. We were told to call the bell and shown where it was and the night porter would let us in. This worked well and when we arrived back at 1am he did arrive as promised and let us in with no problems.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and we would come back again. The food was by far the best part and the waitress in particular should be commended for her friendly attitude and service.
