“Never again!!!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Well, where do I start - the photographs that are used to advertise this hotel must be from when it first opened, many moons ago.
On entry this is what I was expecting - but to my horror, it looked like a run down hotel. There is now no grass at the front and just a car park, the whole exterior needs revamping, and even better the garden at the back looked like a small forest with green mouldy chairs.

The room we had was very small and mould was on the windowpane and damp. The bed was a small double bed and very uncomfortable, and the 'en suite ' ( didn't deserve than title ) was a cubicle with an old shower curtain and very dated.

Breakfast.. greasy, teapot filthy with tea stains and just not nice. I really don't know the other reviewers on her stayed..
It was that depressing we checked out early and stayed at the Days Inn - much much much better and cheaper..

Having stayed in Millstones before we knew what to expect and this time was no different than any other which was PERFECT. the room was cosy and the free WIFI is also an added extra. The food was excellent we explained to the staff that we were vegan and they cooked us a meal far better than any other hotel we have stayed in.

Reviewed 8 April 2014

We just finished a 2 night stay at this charming establishment. If you are looking for the big chain hotel experience, this is not for you. If you are looking for a small, welcoming inn with loads of character, welcome here.

From our welcome at the front door, to a hot breakfast on our way out the door, I have seldom encountered such warmth from every staff member in a hotel. The "tired" look that others have mentioned in past reviews is not tired at all. This is the charm of a family run business. The lounges are comfortably furnished and the conservatory (where breakfast was served) overlooks a beautiful blooming garden.

My room was comfortable with excellent pillows (usually my biggest complaints in a hotel). The bath was a great size with loads of hot water!

You can preorder your breakfast the evening before with a wide selection of hot and cold selections.

As mentioned in a previous review, the inn is located on a major road with plenty of off road parking available. Road noise was certainly not an issue during my stay.

I would certainly not hesitate to recommend this location to friends and families looking for a smaller friendlier alternative to the large international chains.

We returned to Millstones again, we have been staying there for around 4 years and rooms are always spotless and cosy. We were greeted with smiles and a warm reception, all staff very pleasant and friendly. The breakfast was excellent, well cooked, not greasy, served in sunny conservatory overlooking lovely garden. We have family nearby and we will be returning again for sure. Very good value for money.

Lovely people and really great home cooked food, but otherwise the place is a bit tired. Some refurbishments have made a positive difference, but the tatty bits are still evident. The new double glazing does have an excellent effect on cutting out noise, but not should be noted it's on a busy main road. Not very "country".

A long time favourite of mine. A great little family run Hotel with nice rooms and a nice little cosy bar. Food is good and the dinners have some interesting choices, the breakfast is grease free. It has good carparking and is conveniently placed for Plymouth Airport, The new University and the Tavistock Road. About ten minutes into town but Taxi's are quite plentiful in Plymouth. Highly recommended.
