We booked this hotel as it looked so nice and was in what we thought was a good location. On arrival, the lobby did look nice and the receptionist was friendly. Then we got to our room. It looked like it hadn't been redecorated or furnished since the 1960s. We spent a good 15 mins marvelling at the old carpet,...

Stopped Friday to Saturday to attend Plymouth University taster day. Hotel is very well located, near to all amenities. Was pleasantly surprised parking was only charged at £3 for overnight stay. Room was very clean and the en-suite looked recently refurbished. Bed was very comfy and made for a good night's sleep. Paid extra £10 for a full English breakfast,...

Rooms were very clean and well equipped. Reception staff very helpful. The breakfast was excellent and waiting staff very friendly. The hotel has the advantage of having the Leisure area for those inclement weather days.

Upon arrival the receptionist refused to let me and my toddler into our room without full payment and because I had arrived before my partner who was paying I then had to walk the streets for 2hours until he was able to meet us and pay. I would have been happy to pay a little but was unable at the...

Nice room, albeit other than the sea views in Plymouth are not great. The bed was 4'6", not ideal but comfortable and with a generous bathroom and plenty of really hot water. Breakfasts were good and cooked for you, so much better than buffet-style! It's a big hotel but seems under-used, which is a shame given its location and how...
