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.

By the title of my review, this is really all you need for an overnight stop. We had a twin room at the rear which was clean, a decent size and with everything you needed in it, even proper glasses. It was actually really quiet at night which was a bonus. The owners Karen and

Wow, what a lovely review, so nice of you. For Ray & I running the guest house ourselves is quite demanding but it makes it all the more worthwhile when people enjoy their stay with us. Thanks again Hope that you return to Plymouth From Karen & Ray

Thank you for taking the time to write a really nice review about our guest house and glad you felt that we were good hosts. We are in a good spot right near the Barbican with the Hoe in front of the house and it is quiet considering it is a City Centre. The parking is metered but we do have visitors permits available to our guests which are good value. Hope to see you again if ever you return to Plymouth. Best wishes from Karen & Ray

"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."
