We stayed at barbara's for a few nights, The first impression from Barbara when we checked in was a little strange and i thought oh oh not going to like this, BUT how wrong could one be, The house was beautiful and to open the house to strangers is something else. I happened to mention i loved pancakes then the... More

I have read positive and negative review of this Guesthouse, referred to the past. I have just come back and my experience was terrible, in regards to Barbara's attitude, who showed very rude manners to us and passed all the (few) time we spent together saying only "you are not allowed to enter here, to do this and that, to...

We planned our trip with a two day stay at Barbara's. We were skeptical because of the price ($89.00 per night). I wish we knew what a pleasant experience staying at Barbara's was going to be like. We would have booked for a longer stay and used Barbara's as a hub like they suggest. Barbara's place is clean, quiet, (downtown... More

This is now only a Guest House - no food/breakfast, only coffee & tea, no frills, thus the great rate. A small guest refrigerator is available with soda, no water, have to ask for it. Guest relaxation area is through the owners personal kitchen, makes you feel awkward. Rooms are small and right next to each other, I was glad... More

We do our best to please all of our guests but sometimes it's made impossible. Personalities clash, demands are beyond reach and sometimes we just drop the ball. Because of Barbara's disability with walking we needed to stop serving breakfast. Hence the Great Price. Our apologies if we didn't meets expectations set. More

Step into Barbara and Kevins' home and it becomes a piece of your heart forever. Wander into the backyard garden and you'll want to sit forever; bright yellow finches, fuzzy bunnies and scavenging squirrels for your enjoyment. Spread out on your sprawling bed in an emaculate room with large windows and darling accoutrements. But by far the most fabulous part... More

I was in Plymouth last week and stayed at Barbara's, which is excellent accomodation, owned by Barbara and Kevin, who couldn't have been more helpful. I can really recommend this

We enjoyed this stay in Barbara's B&B so much. They are really a nice people full of tips and replies to all your question. You feel welcome everytime you get into their home and there is always time for long chats ;-) The information they give you is better than a tourist info point and ranges from a train schedule...

We have just returned from Holiday and stayed at Barbaras. What a fabulous time we had. They treated us like royalty. The bedrooms are beautifully maintained and ours was also beautiful.
