Have stayed at this hotel on business trips for the last month on and off and can thoroughly recommend a stay here. The hotel is situated in a commanding position above the city of Plymouth approx 25 mins from the sea front, in a large acreage of parkland with a great golf course. The building is old but well looked...

I stayed here on business. I searched travel inn then did booking.com for an alternative with a gym at the same price! Bingo! So upon arrival I was concerned that this hotel could be very run down. The pink exterior worried me. However, upon entering the front door my worries subsided. The check in was pleasant and I was allocated...

Stayed at this hotel for a night while on business. I had a nice tidy room, actually the room was massive. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly but the place could do with a bit of modernising. Used the hotel gym which again like the rest of the hotel was OK but some of the equipment has seen...

Stayed here one night and got a great rate. Friendly reception staff, massive room but bit dated, gym ok for killing an hour, bar does good pub food and nice cooked breakfast. Would stay again if in area and recommend for short stays.

Visited the Spa for a relaxing getaway from the kids. Everything exceeded my expectations, beautiful warm crystal clear pool, clean facilities, amazing massage, but it was the staff that made it for me. From the moment I walked in they look after you, the tall young lad on reception (Tayler?) introduced himself, made me a coffee (needed it!) and showed...

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for a birthday treat for him, I got a great deal which included a massage, 3 course meal, one night stay and breakfast the next day. After reading some of the reviews on here I nearly cancelled it but I'm so glad I didn't because we had an amazing time. The hotel is very...

Ok. Before I start I'd like to say that the hotel did give us a refund for half of what we paid also we weren't charged for drinks we had. Christmas day 15 plus a baby. 10 adults and 5 children aged 3-12. We were booked in for a 12:45 sitting. I arrived at around 12 to get a drink...

Wish I'd slept in the car. Worst and most uncomfortable bed I have ever experienced. Tired spa facilities. Came back from a restaurant for a night cap at 10pm and everything was shut....no staff to be found anywhere and the bar locked up. Get what you pay for I guess.
