We had a fantastic stay at The Rust Anchor. Previous comments had mention Rising Damp, confusing as there was no sight of Rigby or Mrs Jones and there was no mould anywhere. The place was clean dry and very comfortable. Jan the land lady was friendly and very helpful. Great place for excellent sea views and walks along the coast...

We stayed hear on New Years Eve, the room was basically clean although small. The ensuite was tired and smelt musty although adequate for one night. The hostess was very nice and looked after us well, the breakfast was what you would expect at this price bracket and reasonable, that said we were not offered orange juice or cereals all...

I have stayed here twice, once on my own a year ago and this month with my teenaged son. Lovely friendly and welcoming hostess. Everything clean and comfy beds. We came down to visit my daughter who lives in Plymouth and she was made welcome too when arriving during breakfast time. We will be back!

I was staying overnight in Plymouth on business and needed a B&B close to Plymouth Hoe. The Rusty Anchor fitted the bill and was very near the sea front. On arrival I received a very warm welcome from Jan the landlady. My first floor room at the rear was a good size, plain, comfortable and clean. The Full English breakfast...

We arrived at the Rusty Anchor B&B by taxi from the Plymouth Train Station around 730pm. The front door was locked but our hostess Jan promptly answered the bell and checked us in quickly and efficiently. Our rooms were upstairs, very simple, clean, neat and the entire place was quite tidy! For our supper, she directed us to a wonderful...

We stayed in the family room. It had everything we needed and was very clean. The room had a double bed & storage, lamps, TV & tea coffee. There were two doors that closed off an additional room with bunk beds, storage & TV. Both rooms had a window with a sea view. It was perfect as we closed the...

We try and stay in B and B's to support the locals as in the past we have found some excellent B and B's but this is not one. The room was small and the en-suite crammed into a cupboard. The bed was held up on one side with a wooden block. We could hear the conversations of the other...
