In a very difficult time for the country, and not able to visit family, we nevertheless managed to have a wonderful Christmas. We could not fault anything about our 4 day break. The staff very efficient, friendly and very attentive. The food was outstanding. The murder mystery evening was great fun. The little extra touches such as a Christmas stocking outside our room on Christmas day, a cocktail making session and call my bluff wine tasting - all helped to entertain us. We will definitely be back.
Very nice place to stay, the suite in the turret, with the hot tub is worth every penny! The spa is one of the best I've been to and the food in the gallery is superb! The top rooms can be on the dear side, but definitely worth the money to upgrade to a suite and eat in the gallery restaurant!
When I arrived at the hotel all of the staff was very attentive, helpful and welcoming. As I checked-in the receptionist clearly explained in details the programme and when the spa and other facilities were available. At Christmas eve dinner was very creative and fun to participate in the murder mystery where the courses were paired with wines which enhanced the experience. On christmas day the decor enhanced this hotel which made this stunning and beautiful place. Vlad, took us to our tables and ensured that we enjoyed our lunch. Andrea looked after us during our stay,made us feel very special and was lovely to hear the history of the hotel. He gave us some very good tips about the wines and whiskeys. The stay was incredible.
I had the pleasure to pass the christmas in this amazing hotel. The place is incredible beautiful, and the christmas decoration made the place look even more special. The food was amazing and unique. Especially the turkey on Christmas lunch was one of the best that I have ever had, and salmon for starter was mindblowing. I would like to say thank you to the gentleman Andrea, I really looked after us and made our stay special. His people and professional skills are impressive. The girls from receptions very kind. We will definitely come back, it was an amazing stay.
I'm late with my review but stopped here for a night travelling back from Cornwall after a holiday late September. This was our 3rd stay and we were told by reception we could claim complimentary champagnes in The Great Hall which was lovely as we had them just before dinner in the Brasserie. We only ever stay in the basic Stable rooms as we find we don't spend much time in the bedrooms as we enjoy the Pool and sitting in The Great Hall or the front garden if the weather is kind enough. You can get a single room rate if you book directly and ring the Hotel - otherwise you will pay the full double room rate. Had a lovely leisurely swim and jacuzzi in the stunning pool then got ready for dinner in the Brasserie. Most of our meal, for 3 of us, was paid for by my Loyalty bonus points that we had amassed from our previous stays so it felt better value than usual. We enjoyed the Salmon and Prawn starters and some choices on the mains - Salmon and a Burger, but I was disappointed with my chicken main as I found it a bit bland with very little sauce to liven it up. Breakfast the next morning was not quite as good as we were sitting in the Brasserie again as opposed to the lovely Gallery overlooking the Great Hall. As it was Covid measures you had to request everything so no going back and fore to the lovely fresh organic buffet and the waitress forgot a few requests or brought the wrong things which was a shame. She was very pleasant and helpful though in the circumstances as they were busy when we were there. Yes we'd stay again, but we have come to the conclusion that one night is enough as we can never find anywhere else decent to eat out for the 2nd night as Plympton is a bit limited with choices of pubs and restaurants and we have tried a few and been disappointed on our previous stays.…
