“Room with a view”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Ebrington House can be a little hard to find, but once you are in Ebrington St, if you find Sainsbury's and look across the street, it's behind the black iron railings. If you have trouble, just call the owner, and he will patiently give you directions. Twice, in my case!

The apartment is up three flights of stairs, but is very well lit and not cluttered by pushchairs, bicycles etc.

The apartment is very well laid out, and most importantly, very clean. All the mod cons, including dishwasher, are included in the kitchen area.

The lounge is very cosy, and warm. Two comfy leather sofas, and dining room table and chairs. One of the things I always like to check, being a movie fan, is if the TV has USB/HDMI connections, so that I can plug in portable hard drive. It doesn't have them. Not the end of the world, as the owner has left a small selection of DVD's. There is wifi available, at no extra cost.

It's a 5-10 min walk into the main shopping area, but if you just want a sub, there's a Subway and kebab shop right next door, or Tesco Metro a couple minutes walk. There is a pub right across the street, with a Wine Bar 50m past that.

The bathroom is a good size, and the shower/bath is just about right. Hair dryer and iron are stored in the bedroom wardrobe.

The bedroom is a very good size, with a CD/alarm clock next to the bed.

If I had to make one change to this otherwise superb apartment, it would have to be the bed. It was a little to low for me, and creaked whenever I moved. That said, it was comfortable, none the less!

Parking out the back is a bit tight if you have a large vehicle. There is rear access to the property, which adds another flight of stairs.

“3 week stay in 2009 - 4 week stay in 2011 - 3 week stay in 2013, what more can I say”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Stephen Newell, A most generous and accommodating man. My first trip in 2009 he was most factual about Plymouth and gave me an incredible "man-about-town" review. I could never have found all the places I visited without his knowledge. The apartment was wonderful. try finding a hotel for the price of the apt "not possible". Well yes you can but would be a lousy hotel. To have an apartment versus a hotel room, what more could I ask for.
Obviously I like the place otherwise I would not have been there 3 times in 6 years. Oh yes, I live in the USA thus a trip to England is every other year. I will be back in 2015, to celebrate my 75th birthday lol. The apartment is so central , I enjoy walking and thus was very happy to find places so close to the apt. I love the Plymouth sound and the Barbican and both are within walking distance of the apt. If you have a car, there is space at the back of the apt for parking your car.

Well Stephen I hope this review gives me a free night in 2015, just kidding.
