“Excellent Guest-House”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

We have nothing but praise for this guest house. It's within walking distance of the city centre.

We were made very welcome by our hosts and the room was clean and the beds extremely comfortable. The en-suite was really clean and we had a good supply of towels every day

For breakfast we chose full English, but there was an excellent choice of cereals and yogurts, tea, coffee or whatever we required.

Hope to return soon - it's really friendly.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back. It was quiet and had a view over Plymouth.

Myself and my friends stayed here after our graduation. The lovely couple that run the alma lodge are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The room was very clean, homely and comfortable and the breakfast the next morning was delishious (with a huge amount to choose from). Thank you very much. I would recommend this to anyone as it is in walking distance to the train station, city and the university.

My partner and I stayed here for one night and we were not dissapointed. The owner met us at the front door, she was very welcoming and friendly, We were shown to our room at the back of the property (through the conservatory) which we were also welcomed to use. Had a bit of a shock to find their pet tortoise (I think his name was Terrance) in the conservatory, he was amazing and let me pat his head! We found our room very clean and comfortable, lovely en-suite with fresh towels, it all looked brand new. Breakfast in the morning was fantastic, full English, also cereals, yogurts, toast, fruit juice to choose from, nice big mug of tea/coffee. I will Definately be staying here again, great value for money, the owner and her daughter were absolutely lovely, and so was Terrance :-) Thankyou.

Stayed here for two nights for the Firework Championships. The town was only about 15 minutes walk away (although buses run regularly past the guest house. Friendly welcome, comfy bed and lovely breakfast. Would definately stay there again if we needed a guest house in Plymouth.

My family and I have stayed at Alma Lodge twice now - both times for one night due to visiting Plymouth Uni - and we love it! The location is just a 10 minute walk into the city centre and Uni and although is located just before a main road, don't let that put you off. On our first stay we were located at the front of the house with the road outside our window, but we couldn't hear a thing and slept very soundly!

The owners are fantastically friendly and were very open to giving guidance, advice and were generally great hosts. The rooms are clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated with the bathroom also looked after very well. If you're looking for simply just a place to rest your head without too many amenities or fancy extras then this place is great value for money!
