Comfortable stay, in a great location for seeing Plymouth attractions and food places. Our host was knowledgable about the area. The room was clean and presentable and the breakfast was good. Nice place to stay. We would go back.

I have stayed here twice, once on my own a year ago and this month with my teenaged son. Lovely friendly and welcoming hostess. Everything clean and comfy beds. We came down to visit my daughter who lives in Plymouth and she was made welcome too when arriving during breakfast time. We will be back!
