We booked this hotel because it was cheap and decent looking. We didn’t really care that much as we were just on our way down to a cottage in Cornwall and just fancied a stop-over somewhere. The hotel is imposing and must have been very glamorous back in the day. Parking was easy as we arrived early. The receptionist was nice enough a little robotic but then it's no different to what you would expect in most hotels like this. Our room was large, a little dowdy and old fashioned but fine for the price. Breakfast was pretty good and the staff seemed both efficient and friendly.
Oh the whole we were pleasantly surprised with the Duke. Plymouth doesn’t really have many great hotels but I’m sure if we had done some more research we could have found better, still this was defiantly far better than staying at a boring Premier or Travelodge type place.
