well located hotel close to railway station and coach station, car parks close by. Near Drake shopping centre, other town shops and market. Close to the Royal Theatre and the Hoe. Buy your breakfast coupon from reception there it will cost £8.95, if you buy at the restaurant it will cost £11.95. Very friendly and helpful staff, the bar area is a disaster, though it has a nice selection of wines and spirits has no craft beers, or real ales only some poor quality chemical beers.
note: standard rooms nice and large no air conditioning just a fan, heating can be noisy

My room was five floors up. You need to be fit and able footed for this room as the last set of stairs are very shallow depth stairs. My radiator didn't work but the staff bought me a fan heater. My shower was cold on the second day and wouldn't warm up even on the maximum heat. The staff and breakfast couldn't have been any better and the location is great for exporing the Hoe and Barbican. Good value for money for shory visits.

Had personal reasons to choose this hotel, set in a luscious Estate we had high hopes. However the drive to the actual house needs an army truck to get down & in any way, was representative of the whole stay... tons of potential let down by the smallest of detail.
Taking into account that the hotel is in the amazing house itself and that upkeep of such is no mean feat. The house, the reception ( with a real fire), the dining room (with a real fire) , the magnificant stairway and the room itself were all lovely and made the room just about value for money.
But it was the little things that just took away the sparkle and edge to such a degree that it went from the potential for 5 star ratings from us to a 3 star.
1. The drive is almost un drive-able, and I was glad we had a high 4x4 car. Forget getting anything low down it.. a real minus for a first impression.
2. At least 3 cigarette butts directly outside the entrance to the house. ( Nothing against smoking and I know you can't control your guests, but it doesn't set a good 2nd impression after the drive...)
3. The bath plug in our room was very rusty and needs replacing. Keeping old features in good repair is hard but changing a bath is an option.
4. The room was good but no frills.
4. The dining room has a great view but the windows in the dinning room were dirty on the inside.
5. Staff were friendly, but not overly engaged and felt like you couldn't ask much more than the a basic level.
6. Breakfast is over overpriced.

The principal town of the south west, Plymouth is famous for its maritime legacy. The Hoe, where Drake awaited the Armada, overlooks the magnificent harbour (Sound): home to naval dockyards and warships, accessible on sightseeing cruises. The bustling atmospheric Barbican district by the inner harbour, with its narrow streets of Tudor and Jacobean buildings, is where the Pilgrim Fathers sailed from. Visit the Elizabethan House and the Plymouth Gin Distillery, as well as the National Marine Aquarium - one of England’s finest.
