“Best B&B In Plymouth”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We have been to Mariners Guesthouse ( or Elaine's Hotel, as my eldest daughter calls it ) a number of times now, and having been to, and viewed a number of hotels in Plymouth, the Mariners is definately THE BEST.

It is always a delight to stop here, from the first class hospitality of Elaine and Steve to the fantastic Full English Breakfasts, endless supply of fresh toast and excellent tea, to the enjoyment of eating in their dining room, complete with fridge for storing your water etc, it is a wonderful experience to stay at Mariners. As well as being top class hosts, Elaine and Steve are very knowledgable of Plymouth, which is another bonus of staying there. We cannot recommend Mariners enough - it is top class.

I stayed at the Mariners for one night June 25th and was pleasantly surprised.i booked through laterooms.com and the paperwork requested that I arrive at 5.00pm but had a cancelled appointment and telephoned to see if I could book in earlier, Elaine was very friendly and said to arrive when it was convenient as my room was ready. The room was clean and tidy with a comfortable double bed along with tea and coffee making facilities. The Mariners is located a short walk from the world famous Hoe and on a beautiful night like I had it's a great place to enjoy an early evening walk,with restaurants and coffee shops never far away. There is parking on the road free of charge from 4.00pm till 10.00am the next morning which is a bit of a bonus,normally on road parking meters start at 8,00am. There was a little road noise but this calmed down just after 10.00pm
Good selection for breakfast which would set the holiday maker up for the day.i would not hesitate in recommending this professionally run B&B' to anyone,hard to fault at the price.

Room Tip: When booking ask for a room at the rear there may be a little less noise

I had to go down to Plymouth for my brother's funeral and found The Mariners on Tripadvsor and all the reviews were right. Elaine was very friendly, the rooms were spotlessly clean and the breakfast was good. I only spent one night there but for the first time away from home I had a good night's sleep because it was so quiet, normally I have trouble sleeping when away from home. If I have occaision to visit Plymouth in the future I will certainly go back to the Mariners. Thank you Elaine.

Room Tip: The room I had was large and sunny and very comfortable.

Booked in here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, Great place to stay, almost on the waterfront but in a quiet side road. A short walk in to town, but you need to be a bit fit as rather hilly. Couldn't fault the room, food or Elaine. We stayed for 4 nights and had a great room, were well looked after & the breakfasts kept us going niceley for the day. Would definately stay here again

Mariners is situated a comfortable walk from the City Centre.
I always receive a warm, friendly welcome.
Elaine's rooms are clean and warm, and the en-suites are spotless.
The breakfasts are very good.

Room Tip: Book early, choose from the selection which are available.

Stayed for one night. Mariners is in an ideal location between the sea front and city centre. Easy walk to either. A much quieter location than we thought for a city centre which was a nice surprise. Very friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was good. Couldn't have asked for more for our short break. One tip: Call at the Mariners before paying for parking: you can buy a reduced price parking permit for road parking. When we visited (Feb 13) it was £3.
