Admiral's View is the perfect place to stay whilst exploring South Devon and Cornwall. The apartment has everything one could wish for and is supremely comfortable and cosy. It is set in the historic Royal William Yard and has fantastic sea views. The only drawback for us (being in our 70s and 80s) is the lack of a lift in the building. The Yard has a bakery and there are numerous restaurants. Having a parking permit is a real bonus. There is also a ferry to the Barbican and a bus stop just outside the gates. I can highly recommend this letting.
Flat is located within the relatively new development of Royal William Yard and is convenient for excursions within Plymouth and the wider south west. Free car parking space is close to the flat. The flat was clean and tidy on arrival. The views across to Cornwall are good and warships sailing from the naval base must also pass close by the flat providing an interesting spectacle to watch. Plenty of tourist information is contained at the flat to help you plan your stay further. Royal William Yard itself has a good standard of restaurants and bars to avoid you making the drive out for lunch or dinner.
The apartment is in a wonderful location overlooking Plymouth Harbour, and has great views. with lots of opportunity to watch the world go by. There are nearby restaurants, and a ferry terminal allowing you to explore the local area by sea, rather than road. Furnishings and fittings are modern and in excellent condition.
We fell in love with Admiral's View the moment we arrived.It is such a light, airy modern apartment and the view is to die for. It is very well equipped with high class furnishings, and there are plenty of things available to provide entertainment on wet days.
The double bed is very comfortable and the showers are powerful. Having a washing machine and separate tumble drier was a huge bonus.
But, the view is what really makes this place special. We loved sitting in bed having our early morning cup of tea, watching the various pleasure yachts and boats go by. Several times naval ships passed by at very close proximity, and it was a dolphin who stole the show on two occasions ....what a treat!!
Bridget & Michael were brilliant in the way they handled our booking. We received lots of very useful information before our holiday and the deposit was returned very promptly after our departure.
We were met at the apartment by a lovely lady called Jo. She was very friendly and gave us a good tour of the property and told us everything we needed to know to get our holiday off to a good start.
Unfortunately we didn't enjoy particularly good weather while we were in Plymouth, but we found plenty of places to visit in and around the area.
We highly recommend Admiral's View as a wonderful place to spend a holiday. The only thing to be aware of is that there are 2 fairly steep flights of stairs up to the apartment, so it probably wouldn't be suitable for people with mobility problems.
Situated in The Royal William yard, this is a simply stunning apartment, beautifully furnished it was an absolute delight to return to at the end of a day exploring. Everything you could possibly need to make a great holiday was catered for. Even if the weather had been bad (which it wasn't) there was plenty to entertain guests. A choice of Restaurants are steps away and there is a local bus to take you into Plymouth city or Barbican and a ferry across to Mount Edgecumbe was also on the doorstep. Quite simply the best apartment we have stayed in, with amazing views and sunsets. We will definitely be rebooking, we really didn't want to leave.
We stayed at Admiral's View for my husband's 60th birthday. On arrival we had a lovely welcome by Jo who showed us around the apartment and gave us lots of tips about places to visit and local restaurants.
There are several good quality restaurants at Royal Williams Yard, our favourites were Pierre's and Wildwood. We enjoyed the ferry rides to both Plymouth Barbican and Mount Edgecumbe via the Cremyll ferry which was well worth a visit.
The apartment was first class with a fantastic view, located at the entrance to the naval port at Devonport, with the Royal Navy ships sailing past out balcony!!!!
Can thoroughly recommend this apartment as a holiday with a beautiful view.
