We stayed as a family in December for a weekend break. It is situated within walking distance of the city centre with free parking and right on The Hoe. We stayed in a huge room on the ground floor which was plenty big enough for us and our daughter. It was extremely comfortable and better than many hotels we have...

Well a hidden gem off the main shopping areas in Plymouth lies this unassuming but extremely appealing guest house in Lockyer Street. Family run with helpful and supportive owners who in the right circumstances will bend over backwards to please their guests and make their stay so much more than just a guest house. Having fridges in some of the...

We stayed at Number One for the weekend after reading so many good reviews. We can only endorse those comments. The hotel was spotlessly clean, Erica was extremely friendly and helpful without being OTT, and the breakfast was superb. We stayed in Room 10 which is at the rear so nice and quiet. The bathroom was really nice and modern...

The room was lovely, clean and bright. A very warm welcome. The Number One is handy to the shops and restaurants and are all in walking distance. The breakfast was nice but could have done with some white bread, as they only had wholemeal and granary.

Thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed your stay, we are in a very convenient location to walk to all of the main city centre and waterfront locations. Toasting bread is either granary or 50/50 (almost white, but keeping you on the healthy side!). If you prefer white bread it's always worth asking, we're likely to have some...

Ideal location, nearly on the hoe and only ten walk from shops, restaurant's etc. Given your own front door key and room key. Front door key required after 10pm. Bedroom a bit dated but clean. Breakfast freshly cooked as requested and very good. Stayed here two nights and would have no hesitation coming back

Chose this B & B from booking.com as a quick break. We love Plymouth and the location of no.1 is superb for walking along the hoe and the barbican being just a few minutes walk. We've had a thoroughly relaxing break here, very comfortable clean rooms with a lovely bathroom. Owners and staff were very courteous and that to me...

We were met by the proprietor, who was pleasant and offered to help me with my baggage up to the 3rd floor. The two nights we stopped over were comfortable. The room was clean and well furnished. The breakfast in the morning was of a high standard and we enjoyed our stay. The only issue I had was the parking...

We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us. To clarify our layout for future guests, we have one guest room on the ground floor, all of the others are on the first or second floors and we're happy to help with bags when needed. The car park isn't overly generous in manoeuvring space it's true, but we're generally able to...

A lovely bed and breakfast in a fantastic location. We arrived about 10am on the friday as we're were staying for a long weekend for my husbands birthday and we able to park in the car park immediately which was a real bonus.
