Great staff, and an easy place to find. The parking available is limited (24 spaces) however there was never a problem on any of the 4 days that I was back and forth. For parking go past hotel (with hotel on left) and take first exit at next roundabout, the car park is on the left. The room was standard,...

We stayed just one night at this hotel to attend a wedding in Plymouth. It is situated on a main road, so it's easy to find by road but the car park behind the hotel is both tiny and difficult to navigate due to its odd shape and small spaces. We parked on the street for some time before joining...

Ideal location for exploring Plymouth. Located near to the best Japanese restaurant I have been to; Yukisan. Also not far from a lovely beach, Wembury. Quiet stay in an impressive building, we often stay here when visiting the area.

The building is very impressive, and decorated in the public area to a good standard. Staff where efficient and friendly. I just think that we where a little unlucky with the room, it was a little shabby but you can see that the rooms are being done up and look amazing but for the deal we got I'm not complaining....

Would have been a Majestic Hotel in it's day however it doesn't meet the current requirements of a 4 star motel. The hotel does have that old charm about it and would be appreciated by others Our room was on the 5th floor and the lift struggled to fit the 2 of us and suit cases. The room wasn't very...
