We (Family of 4) spent a lovely weekend based out of the Mount Batten Centre (dont confuse with Mountbatten Hotel), staying in a family room overlooking the water. The Centre offers a wide range of water sports and diving courses for all ages with accommodation on site and the added advantage of being right opposite the Barbican, which you can reach via regular water taxis.
All the staff were fantastic and there was a really nice relaxed feel to the place and the bar has a lovely balcony overlooking the boats. Rooms were all spotless, lots of hot water and cable TV.
If you are an active family, couple or simply want to visit Plymouth then this is a great place to base yourself. We will definitely be back.
I would also recommend you visit the Borrington Arms (Bori) for great beer and food, it is about 10 minutes walk down the river towards Plymstock.
