I've been staying here a few times a year for 2 year now cause I'm a distance learning student at Plymouth University.

Accommodation booked for daughter's graduation - great location within walking distance of The Hoe ( also very near to other local sights ). Helen and Patrick made us so welcome - friendly, helpful and most professional. A beautiful guest house full of character. Clean, quiet and relaxing, superb breakfast - would definitely stay again. Thank you both.

I booked a group of cyclists into the Mayflower at short notice and were impressed by Patrick and Helen's helpfulness and welcome. As soon as you walk into the room you know you are in a quality establishment and we weren't disappointed! A great location too, in future I will not stay anywhere else in Plymouth.

Yet another short break taken in Plymouth, always plenty to see and do in the local area, this time we stayed at The Mayflower B&B, a shame that we hadn't found this one before. Great hosts, Patrick and Helen were most helpful during our stay, a great location close to Barbican and the shops. We won't spend time looking for...
