The Duke of Cornwall Hotel is a grand old lady in a prime location for Plymouth's Theater Royal and the Pavillions. If you like the 'traditional' type of hotel, this one's for you. Every room is different, with differing windows, aspect, decor - there's even a four poster bed in one of the rooms.
The staff that we had contact with were all very friendly and helpful. We had a quick tour by a very experienced porter - what he didn't know about the place wasn't worth knowing! Some of the rooms face onto the main road, so if you like to sleep with the windows open, ask for a room that faces another way. Possibly the centrepiece of the place is its beautiful old stairway.
We were going to the pavillion, just across the road, for a concert, so we didn't have time for a meal, but the bar snacks were more than enough. Breakfast was very good.
I've booked again for when we go for a show in May and any other shows we go to, we'll be staying there too. less
