A last-minute booking for a Chinese friend mine...who reports she was extremely happy. A small but clean room with shared bathroom. But at £30 for one night with a good breakfast thrown in, good location, plus a very friendly and helpful owner, this was ideal for her. Highly recommended.

Arrived at Firs to be greeted by note on door . Please note Guest checking in today we are closed from 1pm to 5pm there is no access before 5pm.
Early check in by prior arrangement only. I was told any earlier and I would be charged £10.00. I'd booked through Booking .com other wise would have found some where else.Spent the afternoon walking streets in poring rain.Returned 4.50pm no reply. It wasn't until dead on 5.00 pm we were allowed in.
None of the doors fitted correctly and could be heard slamming all night.
couldn't get Wi fi as advertised.
WE WON'T BE STAYING AGAIN. WISH I'D READ REVIEWS PRIOR TO BOOKING

Regarding your recent stay. I sent you a message regarding the check in times and if you required early check in to reply to the message I sent to you. we received no reply from you that you would like early check in. we have to make the necessary arrangements for guest arriving early. It does state check in are from 5pm , early check in by prior arrangement.
we do have to go out to buy shopping ect and have appointments to attend Hence the check in times .. Once we have dealt with breakfast , cleaned up and serviced all the rooms ready for the next check in , and any repairs needed before check in washed all the laundry plus ironing , deal with paper work , bookings ect, telephone calls. This does not leave us much time , we cannot wave a magic wand for all to be finished ready for early check in that why I sent a message to you if you required early check in . The wifi works absolutely fine and there are nothing wrong with the doors.

We booked this b+b last minute after our airbnb cancelled. It was very well located and walkable distance to the hoe and Barbican. Rooms were clean with ensure bathrooms and breakfast was good- options of continental or English breakfast. There is no sitting room but there are plenty of places locally to sit if it is raining. Of note the b+b is not open from 1-5 for checking in so if you are going to arrive at this time call ahead and they will organise to be there.

Had to go on a very last minute work trip to Plymouth. The Firs was very accommodating about my late arrival in the evening. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom facilities were good.

Breakfast was tasty and filling. I would certainly stay there again if I had to return to Plymouth.
