In June 2012 I spent two weeks in Plymouth. I was there to work, so I did not have much time to visit the city and the surroundings. However, thanks to the very friendly atmosphere created by Helen and Patrick and the perfect location of the Mayflower B&B, I really enjoyed my two-week stay. If (as I hope) I'll have...

The Mayflower is just what you need, a well-priced, friendly and clean B&B close to everything you need. Helen & Patrick are very hospitable and the rooms are a good size and very clean. The breakfast is great too, although the serving times are a bit restrictive being from only 8am - 9am. As with all of Plymouth's little streets...

We have stayed at the Mayflower on various occasions over the past 3 years, most recently being a week ago. We are always made very welcome, the rooms are clean and comfortable and breakfast in the morning is always good. The location of the Mayflower is great as you are a 5 minute walk from Barbican, Hoe and city centre....

We have used the Mayflower for a few years now after using others in Plymouth. This is the best by far. The hosts are friendly and extemely helpful and provide you with any help and assistance you need. We have booked again for our next visit and highly recommend it.

I have been using the Mayflower hotel for the last five years, the welcome is always warm and friendly every time I come to Plymouth. The breakfasts are good, rooms are clean and tidy. Location is great as very near to the Barbican/Citadel. I will be using again next time I visit Plymouth.

Mayflower was recommended to me by its neighbouring B&B The Four Seasons, which was due to be closed the weekend I was planning my visit to my old university town. I booked a single room with private facilities but was given a double en suite for no extra charge. The room was charming, the welcome was warm and I was...
