Positive Reviews

Friendly and welcoming hosts

The hosts here are said to be friendly and welcoming. Many guests have reported that they also have a great knowledge of the local area and are able to help guests in ensuring that they make the most of their stay in Plymouth.

Location, location, location

Guests love the location of this guesthouse. Set right on the hoe, where Sir Francis Drake famously played bowls whilst waiting for the Spanish Armada, there are a variety of historical monuments nearby. For guests more interested in retail therapy than history, Drake Circus shopping centre is within easy reach.

A home away from home

Guests who've stayed here have mentioned that the rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. These guests also felt that the atmosphere in the guesthouse was calm and relaxing.

Negative Reviews

Trek to the toilet

Guests staying in bedrooms without their own ensuite bathroom have commented that the shared bathrooms were quite often on a different floor to where they were staying. Guests didn't feel that this was convenient, and would be more likely to book an ensuite bedroom should they stay here again.

A refurbishment wouldn't go amiss

Some guests feel that this accommodation would benefit from a refurbishment, as decor is outdated and furnishings are starting to look a little tired.

Some noise from outside

Because this guesthouse is right next door to a pub, some guests have reported that it can be quite noisy at kicking-out time, especially at peak season. Guests who struggle to sleep may wish to do further research to understand if any bedrooms are less noisy than others prior to making a booking.
