Phone answered when running late so lyn waited for us to turn up. A warm welcome and comfy beds and a nice sized room. Good for short stay and close to the city where we were seeing live music. Parking right outside and good value. Will surely stay there again. Thank you lyn for a comfortable stay x

Arrived and found the place shut - despite telling them of estimated arrival time in advance. Eventually a very very rude woman came to the door and aggressively demanded payment on arrival. I'm not surprised because you wouldn't want to pay once you'd stayed in this shabby little place. Possible the worst hotel experience ever.

Even if it was the last room left in Plymouth I wouldn't stay there. We struggled to get in the hotel and when we were in at 1 minutes past 10 in the morning there was a knock on the door and I was handed a mobile and told to speak to a very aggressive owner who told us we...

“Family room was spacious enough for 3 adults one child and a baby. Also with all the luggage. Ground floor is good for access with buggy and wheeled bags.”
