Chester House
Ranked #27 of 78 Plymouth B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 November 2013

We have just spent a very happy few days in Plymouth and are really glad that after consulting Trip Advisor, we booked Chester House! Andy met us, helped with the bags because I have recently had surgery and am unable to lift very much and whilst he took my husband to park our car in their secure parking area at the rear of the property - a real plus!- Dot made us a cup of tea and loaded the tray with biscuits. Andy then returned with a local map and told us of good places to eat in the evening; the best cabs to hail if we needed a lift back from town and then generally imparted his extensive local knowledge which was much appreciated. He advised us of the Wi-Fi code and then left us to unpack! The room was spotless, snug and warm; the bedding was lovely as were the towels. Each morning, we had fresh towels and the tea/coffee tray re-equipped for our evening/early morning drinks! At our request, we slept at the front of the House because we had a clear view of the viaduct and the trains approaching Plymouth Railway station. This was NOT intrusive as the trains are pretty slow at this stage but it was fun to watch them approach and leave with lighted carriages. There was little to no movement during the night and our sleep was never disturbed.

Breakfasts were wonderful -a choice of cooked or continental - Dot does the cooking and Andy is in charge of the toast (!!) Almost everyone nattered to others at breakfast , encouraged by the friendliness and banter of Dot and Andy, and it was an excellent start to the new day! Nothing was too much trouble for these two. I even heard Dot volunteer to do some laundry for a young guest who had arrived for a conference after a long journey- it's this sort of helpfulness and excellent service that makes you want to go back! Yes, you two..... we are hoping to come back next May during the summer half term to sample more of your care and hospitality! Thank you for a lovely visit to Plymouth!

Room Tip: We asked for a front, road facing room because of the view of the viaduct - my husband is a train en...

Stayed here from the 24th-27th for a passing out parade and had a wonderful stay.

Everything was immaculate! Andy and Dot were incredibly welcoming and nothing was too much trouble no matter what time of the day they were always there to help.
Both our double and the single room were spotless, comfortable and well stocked with tea, coffee and biscuits.

Breakfast was amazing and had a much better choice than anywhere else I have ever stayed (They even have lemon marmalade!)

I would recommend Chester House to anybody planning a stay in Plymouth. It was fantastic value and perfect service we will certainly be staying again!

Thank you Dot and Andy for a truly wonderful stay!

I have stayed at Chester House several times whilst studying at the University. It is 5-10 minutes walk from campus and the main train station on a fairly quiet suburban street.

Dot and Andy are very welcoming and friendly, the rooms are clean and comfy. There is free wi-fi and tea/coffee making facilities. It is lovely and quiet overnight (I was always on the side of the house that was away from the road when I stayed).

Amazing power shower on the first floor and equally fantastic breakfast to set you up for the day, including vegetarian option.

Chester House is great value, particularly if you are in this part of the city, very convenient and comfy.

Stayed here, over the weekend, when taking my daughter to Plymouth University, over arrivals day. Andy and Dot are more like family, and treat you exactly the same way during your stay. When we arrived there was a very welcoming cup of coffee and indeed biscuits as well, after a very long journey. Any questions we had in regard to absolutely anything, e.g. directions, they were fully explained, with Andy even giving us a few "local" tips. The room itself was very clean. As for the breakfast, absolutely fantastic, and sets you up for the day. Really handy to the train station. Chester House is an "untold secret", but I had to tell someone, and is a "Jewel in Plymouth's Crown. I can't wait for my next visit and will definitely be staying with Andy and Dot.

Brilliant B&B run by Dot & Andy, very freindly and helpfull. Imaculate rooms, and good value, would recomend Chester House. Limited choice for places to eat, a very nice Italian restaraunt a short brisk walk away. Will be going back again.

Andy and Dot are lovely. Very friendly and welcoming and they run a tight ship. Bedroom was clean and comfortable and spotlessly clean. Good value for money. Beautiful gardens front and back. Fairly convenient location although not scenic. Ideal for us though with easy parking.

Just stayed at Chester House for a second time. Chose not to have an en-suite room but the bathroom was just next door with a great shower. The room had a sink and tea making facilities. Everything was clean, tidy and well cared for. I was made to feel very welcome. The rate includes a full breakfast, cereal, etc.
Totally recommend for anyone looking for a quality B&B in the area.
