We stayed here at the end of Jan with our 2 year old for 3 nights. From beginning to end our experience was a good one. We had informed staff when we booked that we had a toddler with us and as a result they allocated us a double room with a desk so that there was more room for the cot and space for the little one to play. - Very thoughtful as the rooms with two double beds wouldn't have been so spacious. When we arrived the room was clean and ready and the cot bed all made up with a little blanket as well - perfect. The hotel does occupy the very best position right on the Hoe, which means you are only a short walk to the town centre, all the shops, The Barbican with it's many restaurants, aquarium and of course the Hoe itself with its famous panoramic view of the sea. This view is also the best thing about breakfast as the restaurant makes the most of its position with large windows stretching the length of the room so you can begin your day looking out on this amazing seascape.
We also dined there in the evenings so we could eat early and put our son to bed. The food is pleasant as opposed to stunning, but the staff made it particularly good as once our two year old had eaten he wanted to run around. Our two servers May and Christina, helped entertain him so we could finish our meal in relative peace. This little gesture was a god send to any parent and we certainly appreciated it.
There is plenty of parking at the hotel at only £3 per day and you can come and go as much as you like via a token obtainable from reception. It’s worth noting that the car park is underground and has some of the narrowest turns I have ever experienced, a real test of skill.
The hotel also boasts a pool, sauna, steam room and gym, the gym is beautifully equipped and wasn’t that busy and the pool basic but good with yet more views of Plymouth Hoe and always a good place to amuse a small child if the weather isn’t great. If the sun does decide to shine there is an outdoor terrace with loungers.
The hotel itself is standard for a Holiday Inn, comfortable and practical without being stunning however the location is first class and the staff certainly did everything they could to enhance our stay.
