“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed here 1night short notice so ended up on the 3rd floor which was ok but a bit of a climb and shower not as good being so high up, but had a great view. Staff always friendly and polite, hotel always clean and tidy. Location is brilliant for the hoe , barbican & town centre.this was our 3rd stay but would try to avoid higher floors in future.

A friendly, family-run hotel. Nothing is too much trouble and we were made to feel very welcome. A very comfortable hotel serving excellent breakfasts.

We were visiting Plymouth for an event. This hotel is close to the Plymouth Pavilions and the Theatre, also The Hoe and The Barbican. The shops are not too far either. Altogether a very well-placed and comfortable hotel. This was our third visit in recent years and we will enjoy returning when we are next in Plymouth.

My wife and I was highly recommended to this hotel by a friend. . And what a treat it was! After a long day of driving we finally arrived at the Invicta at about 11pm. We was then welcomed by a very kind young gentleman behind reception who made us feel right at home.
We was placed on the top floor by the online booking system which was a bit of a let down as I have a slight problem with climbing stairs, but was then given a free upgrade to a first floor room as we was only staying the one night and they had rooms available. We was then given a nice warm cup of tea and was seated in the lounge whilst our bags was taken to our room for us. One of the proprietors was nice enough to cook us some food as we barely eaten all day, even though the kitchen was closed.
The room we was in (room 12) had a wonderful queen sized bed AND a checuzzi in the bathroom. The cleanliness of the room was absolutely superb!
We was then welcomed in the breakfast area the next morning by a sweet waitress who again made us our morning coffee. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful! Cooked to perfection. Our luggage was brought back down for us that morning.
We was treated like royalty but also treated us as old friends. It was an absolute pleasure staying at this hotel. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Definitely be back next year.

My wife booked this particular Hotel due to its location. Apprehensive at first because we normally stop in the larger hotels and lodges. Upon check in we were offered a complimentary tea or coffee in the lounge a nice touch after a 5 hour journey. We noted there was no lift as stated on the web site we were offered porterage but were on the first floor so it didn't really matter.

Our room was front facing over looking the park with a large window with really nice lace net curtains. Room 14 was similar in size to our own bed room at home so size wasn't an issue. This was immaculately clean, my wife is an ex WREN so all has to be ship shape and sparkling. I call it OCD. Mmmm lets not go there.

We had a great nights sleep on I believe to be a fairly new bed and the bedding and pillows were really nice. Will try and put pics on.

Breakfast in the morning was plentiful. This took about twenty mins to come to the table but didn't mind the wait as it was cooked fresh and was piping hot in the meantime we tucked into the cold buffet of cereals. Nice coffee and unlimited toast.

We were going to eat in the restaurant that night but had several recommendations. When we returned the bar was still open so I had a night cap. A very well stocked bar. A little corner called Scotch corner.

All in all a very friendly well priced hotel with lots of character. I will certainly be returning to this hotel and trying the smaller independent hotels in the future.

We stayed at the invicta hotel for the weekend. The hotel is ideally situated and very close to all the main attractions .Plymouth hoe is a stones throw away the barbican and thearters are just a short walk away. The rooms are very spacious and immaculately clean (a real credit to all the housekeeping staff) with Imbroided linens and soft towels .the breakfast was superb and plentyful the staff are polite and helpful . all in all I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

We had to move our Rotary Club breakfast meeting from another venue at very short notice. Roy, Betty and their team have accommodated us very well. Good city centre location with an excellent breakfast served by friendly staff. Thank you.
