It was only a one night stay. The room was delightful. A large fourposter bed, and good quality furnishings. A very large window, and the afternoon we arrived, the sunshine was pouring in. The bathroom was minute, and we would not have wanted to spend more than a couple of nights in this room because of this. The towels were very large and fluffy, and there was plenty of hot water. Everything was spotlessly clean. The room was laid out well with comfortable armchairs and a coffee table. a desk/dressing table with good lighting, and plugs containing USB charging ports for our phones and ipads. A good hospitality tray. Also an iron and ironing board. The bar was OK, but the evening we were there, there had been a wedding, and the bar was full of rowdy guests and lots of children. (I am a Grumpy old woman!) Staff were helpful and pleasant, Breakfast was very good, but service was slow, i suspect because of all the guests staying on after the wedding. The car park was very small, and we couldn't get in, again because of all the wedding guests, so we had to park in the road outside, which was no big deal, £3.00 for the afternoon and overnight, but had to move by 10.15.am..
A really beautiful building, I believe the first purpose build Hotel, and many famous people have stayed here over the years. Very convenient for Plymouth Pavillions, which is immediately opposite. We would definitely go back. less
