My mum and I have just returned from a stay in Plymouth where we had the pleasure of staying in this B&B for three nights. Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted by the owner who offered to help carry our bags upstairs which was a lovely gesture, particularly as a medical condition that has recently been deteriorating has made...

My wife and I had to travel to Plymouth to visit a sick relative and decided to stay overnight. We were fortunate enough to come across Poppy's and received a very warm welcome from Diane even though we were later arriving than we had originally thought. The room (No 3) was comfortable and clean with a particularly good shower. The...

So sorry to hear that your stay was not a 100% and that you experienced a drain smell in the morning. It is always a positive to report any problems at the time of your stay so we can investigate as quickly as possible to rectify any problems. This seemed to be an intermittent occurrence and hope this problem has...

What a wonderful place. Lovely welcome on arrival and offered a nice cup of tea. Our Room (2) was on the ground floor with a double and single bed. Room was exceptional. Bathroom had a walk in shower and was very clean and modern. Nice having your own kettle with tea and coffee, with free bottles of water. The breakfast...

So pleased you enjoyed your stay at Poppy's and that you would recommend Poppy's to others. We like to think our breakfast menu offers something for everyone from our big Poppy's breakfast to lighter options for those wanting a smaller breakfast. It was a pleasure to meet you both. Kind regards Diane

Poppy's is a wonderful place to stay. Dianne greets you with the offer of a pot of tea. The bedroom we stayed in was nice and clean and we were going to steal the duvet it was that good. (No Dianne we did not steal the towel). Some previous reviews have mentioned the parking at the rear being difficult, good...

We have stayed at Poppy's a number of times when visiting our Son who has been studying at Plymouth University. Recently refurbished it is now much more modern, especially the new bathrooms, and really pleasant. Diane, who runs it is always very friendly and welcoming despite seemingly doing everything ! It's perfectly situated only a couple of minutes from the...

I have stayed in many hotels and guest houses. I would rate this as one of best due to friendliness, cleanliness and spaciousness of bedroom/ensuite. The ensuite in the bedroom I stayed in although compact was beautifully designed. The generous breakfast was most satisfying with plenty of options. I checked in after a long journey and was greeted with a...

Thank you Chris for leaving such a positive review. We try very hard to get it right for our guests and offering a welcome drink on arrival is a small touch, to welcome our guests especially if the journey has been long and tiring. Hope to see again soon on your next visit to Plymouth. Kind regards Diane

We have stayed in many B&B's though out the country over the years and Poppy's is amongst one of the best. Very welcoming, quiet on the whole, excellent location and the breakfasts are surely 'the best in town'. As far as ratings go we would certainly give it a 9 out of 10. The only suggestion we would make would...

So pleased you enjoyed your stay at Poppy's. I have often thought about back ground music, but as I have a ground floor guest room, next to the breakfast room for those guests who cannot manage the stairs, I feel this could be a disturbance to their stay. We would love to welcome you back at some point in the...

Lovely B&B run by Diane who clearly works very hard to maintain her high standards! Great location too as a short walk away from the Hoe, the Barbican and the centre itself. Really lovely breakfast too! If we were visiting Plymouth again, we'd certainly stay here!
