We are sorry that you did not approve of payment on arrival. For what it is worth we do not like to do it either. We have been in the business for over 14 years and not everyone is honest! We made this decision to take payment on arrival due to people doing a 'runner' plus other misdemeanours that have...

I stayed with Karen and Dave for about 9 weeks on and off from March to June. They were a really sweet couple who treated me wonderfully. They made up my bed/room the way I preferred, they remembered how I liked my breakfast every morning. It was nice staying with friendly people at a time when I was spending a...

Our room was super clean and provided all that we needed. Breakfast was promptly served and had a fair choice - although I would welcome more breakfast 'traditionals' such as...

Many thanks for your review. Our car park situated at the rear of the house is accessible by a narrow back lane and can take up to 6 vehicles which can include transit vans etc. We do offer a full English breakfast including a sausage but no black pudding.

Stayed here in early May, our twin room had a large double bed, a single and a good little en-suite. The room was immaculate and very comfy with tv and tea/coffee facilities. Breakfast was great and owners David and Karen were wonderful hosts, going above and beyond to help out my disabled mum. Perfect position in Plymouth between the town...

Would stay again, yes. We visit Plymouth once a year for a memorial service on the Hoe, we will come again. Plymouth has a fabulous position overlooking the sea, lots of historical interest about the history of our country. Recommend Chloe's restaurant close by.
