My wife and I stayed for 5 nights and had a great time - thanks, in large part, to Carla's attentive service. Our room was spotlessly clean, spacious and airy with en-suite facilities. Our cooked breakfast was delicious each morning and Carla was always ready to answer any question we had. We could see she was going out of her way to make each guest as comfortable as possible, which really impressed us and really contributed to the enjoyment of our stay. We'll be coming back!

Stayed for 4 nights. Room good size v clean with e suite. Great breakfast freshly cooked with lots of choice. Landlady very welcoming. My only criticism and it was minor because we were out and about a lot was that the free wi fi wasnt very good in terms of signal. I had my 3G on phone tho so was able to use that. Good location.

Room Tip: has ground floor rooms for those with limited mobility

we stayed 5 nights at the edgcumbe guest house as we had decided to make plymouth our pivotal point while exploring the area. on the whole, we did not regret our choice, although the first impression of our room - on the top floor, no lift and very steep and narrow stairs - was mixed. the room was large, with basic furniture, but ... with a full working kitchen - which we did not need and which took much of the atmosphere of the room away. no other room was available, however, so we eventually got used to the situation.
on the positive side, which prevailed by far, are the ample parking facilities (except ... see later!), the excellent location of the guest house - a few steps from the port, with a large but comfortable pub, whose terrace offered us front row seats during the british national fireworks championship which took place on two of the five nights we were there (and which meant we had trouble finding a space for the car) and only about 10 to 15 minutes to the barbican and to the hoe, the friendly proprietors (who were unhappy that we did not appreciate the kitchen in our room!) and the more than adequate breakfasts.

Room Tip: NOT the top room with the kitchen facilites, if you don't need them! there are very nice and comfortable looking rooms with four poster beds, too!

My father and I were bringing my nephew from Australia on a visit to Plymouth to see the city where his mother was born and brought up. We were very happy with our stay at the Edgcumbe Guest House. I had a single room but in fact there was a double bed. The ensuite facilities were small but more than adequate and I was very pleasantly surprised at the effectiveness of the shower. The add ons in the form of toiletries etc. were more than I have experienced in international hotels. My dad and nephew shared a twin room - one double and one single bed and separate en suite. Breakfast was tasty and on the nail. For value for money, cleanliness and efficiency, you couldn't do better.

Although it looks quite plain from the outside, the Edgcumbe very sizable but cost rooms that are neat and clean. It offers a good breakfast and we found the location perfect. 10 minute walk to the old port area and 2 minutes walk to a great pub with very good restaurant quality meals. Don't let the online photo of the outside put you off, this is a very safe choice.
