Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

1st time visit to Mariners
Comfortable bed in a cluttered twin room, single occupancy, and the room looked unwelcoming as the 2nd bed wasn't made up.
Small but adequate en suite, although the 'shower' was more like a drizzle.
Breakfast ok,
Not a particularly warm welcome but I later discovered this was not the owner of the B and B but someone looking after it for them.
No central heating on the 1st morning, even though it was January, so very cold.


Stayed January 2014, traveled solo

I was travelling to catch up with a friend so travelled solo. Booked the single room. Was small but perfect for my needs. Spotlessly clean. Good value for money. Breakfast excellent. Hosts friendly but not intrusive. Central location, walking distance to the beautiful hoe. Would recommend.

I booked on Laterooms the week before staying at the Mariners. I booked based on the reviews (knowing that the one negative comment was most likely a nit picker!) and was not disappointed.

Elaine and Steve are friendly but not intrusive, the accommodation was spacious and beautifully clean. I was happy to find tea/coffee facilities in the room :) Breakfast was fantastic. Any time I need an overnight in Plymouth again, I'll be here.

I was driving as I was on a course in the area but I did walk to the end of the road and found myself one road away from the sea and a three minute walk from the Lighthouse on the Hoe. Fabulous!

Room Tip: I was in room 4 - a double with en suite at the front of the house. Worth every penny of the £65 I...

I have stayed in a fair few B&B's in my time and I always get a warm greeting from the owners, well that has changed.

From the off the lady who owned the place gave the sense that she did not want me there. She was rude and patronising. Not once did she try and engage in conversation, well not until the last day when I paid, then she was happy to chat.

It was a great shame because the facilities were nice and clean and breakfast was good.

I won't be staying here again or recommend it to friends or family !!!

English guest houses get a bad press for being dated and expensive. Mariners bucks the trend. Its personal and friendly, clean and tidy, breakfast is excellent and its within walking distance of everything you want in Plymouth. Can't fault it.

A great start to the day began with Julie serving breakfast with her infectious and quirky interaction with guests. Comfortable, cheerful, very clean, with a great selection at breakfast. Would definitely recommend the Mariners.

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.
