We stayed for 3 nights over the bank holiday. The location is really good - just a few minutes walk from the Hoe and the Barbican. The Drake was welcoming and comfortable, the room was a good size and the bathroom, with a shower, was a good size and very clean, although bigger towels would be better as the towels...

On first impressions the door was all shut and locked up during the day. This doesn't give a great welcome to have to wait to access the place you just want to rest. I understand at night for security purposes but not during the day. The décor and general feel of the place is outdated and uninvited. The lady on...

I am pleased to be able to reply to this review and will endeavour to give a measured response to all comments made. Firstly, as a family run B&B, not a hotel, our reception is not manned continually as we may need to be in other areas of the building and this is the reason why the front door is...

A short weekend visit for an event. Hotel very conveniently located, with only short walks to The Hoe, the Barbican and into town. Owner friendly and chatty, booked our taxi for us. I had the full English breakfast both mornings, a great treat! The room was comfortable.

Love it here, very convenient for the Barbican and the Hoe, very reasonable and a great breakfast. The owners are very welcoming and the hall way stairs and entrance have just been redecorated which looks lovely. You can also,park outside which is a bonus.

Lovely guest house in a great location in the centre of Plymouth, with parking on-site. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again next time I'm in Plymouth.

Good guest house, great breakfast. Friendly staff, phoned taxis and advised on the area. Nicely situated near the Ho. Fits the bill if you want a bolt hole for the night and a good nights sleep. I'd go back again.

Friendly owner and excellent breakfast. Well located for the centre of town. Very good value, I thought. Last check in is 9.30pm which is understandable in a...

I stay in Plymouth quite frequently, saw this Guest house and always thought how convenient it was with location and parking so I thought I'd give it a whirl instead of staying in one of the larger chains. When we arrived, parked right out front, eliminating any expensive parking fees, great. Very friendly greeting and we were shown to our...
