Seymour Guest House

Room & Suite (8)
Dining (2)


Our Victorian house is situated in a pretty terrace right on Plymouth Hoe with views over Hoe Park and the Royal Citadel and to the rear of the guest house we have views over Plymouth City Centre. The City Centre, with its Theatres, Galleries, Colleges, University and large shopping centre is just a short walk away, as is the historic Barbican with its National Marine Aquarium, Mayflower Steps, Marina and Sea Front. HMS Raleigh is only a short bus ride or drive. Travel is not a problem as train, coach and continental and local ferry terminals are also within walking distance. We hope our guests take the opportunity to experience nearby places of interest such as Dartmoor National Park, The Eden Project and the wonderful surrounding countryside and coast of Devon and Cornwall. Our seven guest rooms are tastefully decorated in neutral shades of beige and cream and have good quality bed linen. All our bedrooms have beverage trays with various teas, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits. They also have colour flat screen TV's with CD/DVD players, hairdryer, alarm clock and toiletries are provided. Breakfast is included and is taken in our dining room. Full English, vegetarian or lighter options, yoghurts, fruit, fruit juices, brown or white toast and hot beverages. Early Breakfasts and special diets are possible by prior arrangement.

Lovely guest house, stayed before always made to feel welcome. Stayed here as it is handy when going to the pavilions to see a show, and handy for the old town. Breakfast is top notch, served hot and first class, Karen and Richard are very good hosts.

Thank you for you kind review. I am glad you thought our beds were comfy and that you had a good nights sleep. When Ray and I go away ourselves we notice what the beds are like as you need to be comfortable and we are put off if the beds and pillows are not good. Hope if you are in Plymouth again you will choose the Seymour.

"Room 4 has a limited view of the Hoe park this is not an issue as there is so much to see in the area you won't want to be stuck inside."
"Front rooms lovely view over hoe."
"Ask for an en suite. It is worth the extra"
"book early!"
"Great views over the Hoe and convenient for both the City Centre shopping and the Barbican port."
