Stayed here for 3 nights at Christmas. A great location on the Hoe a short walking distance to the sea front and shopping centre. The owner Nigel was very friendly and helpful. The cooked breakfast was ok but a bit on the small side. As for the rooms they are in serious need of modernisation. An old style portable tv hight on the wall with wires dangling down and a very old electric shower with a very low water pressure. The shower cubicle must have also been the original. The room needed a serious lick of paint and brightening up. I paid £40 for b&b per night.

My mother and I shared a room here when visiting my daughter at Plymouth Uni. I understand that most rooms are now en suite. This B&B is well positioned close to the Hoe, and allows small dogs to stay. Rooms are simple, and short on space, breakfast was fine, with plenty of tea available, plenty of hot water. Nigel and staff warm and friendly

We had a pleasant stay here as we toured SW England. Nigel was very helpful and his breakfasts were good. The property is an old building with lots of charm. The room itself was very comfortable. Parking was at a premium but Nigel helped us to find street parking nearby as his parking area is small and was full at the time. The proximity to Plymouth Hoe was excellent especially as we unexpectedly arrived at the time of the Armed Forces Day which was held up there.

Great place to stay. Nigel the owner is friendly, helpful and accomodating. Convenient to waterfront and restaurants. Breakfasts are delicious and cooked to order. Would stay there again for sure.

Room Tip: Rooms at back of hotel do not have traffic noise.

I stayed one night on Saturday 24th September 2011.

It was all I would want a guest house to be. The room was more than adequate, staff and owners were always available to help and advise me.

Nice choice of breakfast

I can't think of one thing to complain about!

Room Tip: Just be honestas to what you want. I was expecting a friend/partner to accompany me - he turned up v...
