“Faultless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

What a find! looks a little shabby from the outside, but, fantastic inside.
Immaculately clean, very modern, staff excellent, just wish we had stayed longer,
Plymouth is a real gem, much more to it than we could have expected especially the marina area, which, if it hadn't have been for the very helpful lady on reception we would never have found.

Can't wait to visit again!

What could you ask for that this doesn't have. Personality from the staff shine through everything. The room that I stayed in was on the small side but comfortable. Food was lovely, served by ever smiling staff.
Good starting point for Cornwall .

The crumbling aged facade did give me pause. But the hotel while dated & creaky is comfortable and close enough to Plymouth Hoe & the City Centre. Would stay here again for the heated pool, sauna and steam which were lovely. Nice staff as well.

We stayed in the Hotel with our choir, thirty or so plus wives and partners, for the weekend of 23 to 26 may 2014. On arrival we were given our allocated rooms (Ours was on floor two ) . The reception was as would be expected and we were pleased, we went to our room 205 . it was very clean and tidy, a decent size too, very nice and comfy, the bed was comfy . The evening meal though I have to say was awful,( Hake dry as a bone, taters were not good either and the least said about the veggies the better ) this did not bode well for the rest of our stay.But the next morning breakfast well made up for it, well cooked and a decent amount of food and plenty of toast, One of the staff as quite grumpy though, but she more than made up for it late on. The annoying thing was not being able to order drinks and the table, we had to trek some distance to get a bottle of wine, And at £17 for a less than a fiver a bottle of wine, rip off. One day the lift broke down too, and for the poor old guys who are not good on the pins was not ideal as some were on the 5th floor, fortunately i was on floor 2. I would say however this is a very decent hotel well placed for getting about too. The staff could use a little customer care training though, but over all they were fine. Not a bad place to stay i'd say.

Room Tip: Its not noisy ,not much traffic noise and the rooms are pretty much the same so all ok.

A great hotel, lovely rooms so clean and spacious, plenty of towels and the beds really comfortable, the hotel is very central to all we needed which on this trip was the Theatre Royal, shops and The Hoe, we had some noise from the pub opposite but not enough to disturb sleep the staff were really friendly and helpful, we did not use the pool facilities so can't comment on them but if I go to Plymouth again would happily stay here.

I had read a few duff reviews so was a bit worried but my fears were unnecessary.
Yes it's a little tired in places but it's a family run hotel and they couldn't have been nicer people. The steam room was lovely, pool area etc looked perfectly reasonable and I was very comfortable. The brasserie looked lovely and my room service food was delicious.
Thank you

The hotel is an ideal base for the town, barbican and the hoe. We stayed in a room on the top floor facing the main road which meant you do get noise from traffic and the near by weatherspoons however this did not effect our stay in any way. Our room was a basic standard hotel room which was very clean and had everything you needed. The swimming pool was a bonus and again this was kept clean and tidy. I would recommend staying in the hotel if you a looking for a central location. It also has a decent size car park which was free to park for guests.
