we stayed 5 nights at the edgcumbe guest house as we had decided to make plymouth our pivotal point while exploring the area. on the whole, we did not regret our choice, although the first impression of our room - on the top floor, no lift and very steep and narrow stairs - was mixed. the room was large, with basic furniture, but ... with a full working kitchen - which we did not need and which took much of the atmosphere of the room away. no other room was available, however, so we eventually got used to the situation.
on the positive side, which prevailed by far, are the ample parking facilities (except ... see later!), the excellent location of the guest house - a few steps from the port, with a large but comfortable pub, whose terrace offered us front row seats during the british national fireworks championship which took place on two of the five nights we were there (and which meant we had trouble finding a space for the car) and only about 10 to 15 minutes to the barbican and to the hoe, the friendly proprietors (who were unhappy that we did not appreciate the kitchen in our room!) and the more than adequate breakfasts.
