Superb value for money Excellent service very friendly team. Nothing too much trouble. The facilities are excellent and great value for money. Lovely breakfast served by a very friendly engaging landlady. It's clean and safe with much thought given to safety etc with smoke detectors etc in the rooms. This is very reassuring. I can't fault this place and clearly...

I stayed for three nights, and was extremely well looked after. The room was very comfortable, and the decor really nice. The breakfast was superb, with an exceptional variety of cereals, and juices. Would definitely stay there again, as it was exceptional value for money.

Only stayed one night but was absolutely delighted with the guesthouse. It is obvious that a great deal of thought has been put into the comfort and convenience of guests. The room was lovely, the breakfast excellent. The position for buses / park and ride / and Plymouth Argyle ground was all that could be desired. We went to see...

We've just returned from a 3 night stay whilst we attended our son's Royal Navy passing out parade. We would most definitely recommend. We were made very welcome. Beautiful rooms. Very clean and comfortable. Hearty breakfast to start the day. Thank you ��

Normally we would have been able to house your whole family in our large family room that sleeps five, but unfortunately this was not available at time of booking. We were very pleased that you were happy with accommodation, however, we did note the comment about the fan and have noted these comments and now ask that anyone in that...

We received a very warm greeting and found the facilities to be excellent. The room (for three people) was plenty large, the double bed large and comfortable and the breakfast very good. As our stay was to visit relatives who lived close by, I cannot comment on the situation with regard to visiting the city, shops, etc., but understand that...

Many thanks for your lovely review about our Guest House. You were correct to suggest that the distance is not far to the City Centre. There is an excellent bus service and the University and City Centre are in walking distance. If wishing to go in that direction, ie down hill into Centre, there is a turning on the side...

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alma Lodge, from the cleanliness to the extremely helpful nature of the landlady. Nothing was too much trouble, and our room was really comfortable and had all the necessary amenities. We will definitely be visiting here again. Many thanks to the staff. Andy Bannister.
