Reviewed today NEW

Stayed for 3 nights whilst on business in Plymouth. The building has some beautiful architectural features, for example the central stair case. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are sufficient. Mine was not large, which was fine for a business stay, the bathroom needed a refresh - decoration peeling and rather out of date, but adequate. No fridge...

Outdated (some might call it quaint) hotel that requires a bit modernising. Staff were friendly and a good English breakfast was available. The shower was a bit disappointing as well as the inability to control the room temperature. Car park at the back is rather small but plenty of off street parking in the area.

This large hotel is conveniently located in Plymouth, the staff are welcoming and friendly. The breakfast is freshly cooked and a good menu. The room I had was large but a little tired, saying that it was perfectly comfortable.

I'm a huge fan of Best Western having enjoyed stays around the globe, but this was one to avoid. The facilities weren't great, rattling windows, squeaking floors, noise from bone and broken facilities. Staff were very friendly but just made loads of mistakes. Soft eggs were hard (boiled for 8 minutes!, 'immediate' service was 24 hours, key cards incorrectly programmed.

We stayed the night following the New Years Eve Gala celebration. The hotel brands itself as a luxury hotel and while the public areas have a grand feel, our room didn't feel luxurious at all. The bed (as mentioned before in the 'yellow' room) had springs coming through the mattress and was so soft that when one of you turned...

We stayed in Room 101, well refurbished with neat ensuite (but shower valve not thermostatic). Comfortable, central, and convenient. Substantial English breakfast. But we could listen in on the smokers conversations in the lobby below till 1 am, and later in the corridor. Also, we left an Apple charger plugged in, and after we contacted Reception the next day, we...

Wow the wonderful charm of this hotel made me feel like I was in a Agatha Christie novel. Please don't ever change this atmosphere that is rear to find. Staff were great, breakfast to a high quality. I can't wait to return and stat there again.

Would definitely recommend to all. Only disappointing part would be the lack of availability of some of the menu choices. Not good if you are a fussy eater as I am. Staff were friendly, room was amazing, decor was just up my street but might not be for those who like modern buildings. Would have loved to stay longer.

Sadly this is a very tired hotel with cramped rooms that have had bathrooms built into them. Would I visit again, in a word No. Had a rear facing room, the decor was awful with yellow hydrangea wall paper and matching blinds and lamp shades, shades of the 50's. The bed was so soft when one of you moved the...
