I thought I must share my feedback based on our recent stay at your hotel. We had travelled down from the West Midlands and were looking forward to a nice stay in Plymouth after not being back to the city for nearly 30 years. Check in was good warm welcome and very chatty. The room was fine except the window...

Stayed here overnight after seeing the amazing Cloudbusting at the Athenaeum. Hotel was in the perfect location and it's also very close to the Pavilions for anyone looking for somewhere close by. The city centre is close by but far enough away so you're not impacted by noise. The room was spacious with a double and single bed. Both beds...

Stayed for three nights, Such a beautiful place, Staff are polite, friendly and very helpful. Food is fantastic. Room was very clean and spacious. Central for the city centre and short walk to the glorious Plymouth Hoe & Seafront. I really recommend visiting both Steve's Brasserie & The Dock for 5* Food.

Really great stay, only stayed one night but would definitely stay for longer in future. Comfortable bed, not far to walk to shops which is really good if you don't want to walk for ages. Everyone was friendly and helpful if we had any questions.

Stayed here for two nights on a business trip. The room was comfortable and very clean but in desperate need of modernisation. Carpet furniture and bathroom looked tired and outdated. All staff wonderfully helpful.
