Great hotel for visiting Plymouth

Posted Aug 16, 2017
Pros: The proprietors Paula was really friendly and helpful
Cons: Couldn't fault hotel in any way
Location: Plymouth Hoe, historic dockyards, home to Beryl Cook exhibition, lots of events throughout year including Plymouth firework championships in August
I took my husband to the Plymouth Hoe fireworks championships for his birthday and stayed at the Alma hotel that was both convenient for the Hoe and peaceful for a relaxing two day break. The hotel is situated approximately 0.6 m from the centre of town and a frequent bus service right outside runs to the town centre and the Hoe, or if you prefer walking, a very pleasant and straightforward walk through town. The proprietors Tony and Paula were very welcoming, friendly and most helpful. The hotel was pristine, wonderfully comfortable and very quiet. Really loved our room and fabulous bathroom with shower and bath. The breakfast was top notch with both a full English or a really good vegetarian alternative. Can't get much better than this and with free parking space outside

Short Break in Alma Guest House

Posted Jul 8, 2017
Pros: Very friendly family-run business; not 'in your face' but one only had to ask for somethng and it was taken care of. We liked the electronic door key.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Location good. Convenient bus service into and out of town.Parking for 3 cars in the forecourt. Also free street parking in the road alongside.
Wonderful stay, nothing too much trouble, breakfast great. Lovely big towels all fluffy and soft to use. Will definitely return when down that way again

Many thanks for your lovely review. Pleased to read that everything was to your liking. Also pleased that you mentioned the parking, as we are very fortunate to have free private parking. Not every B & B has the luxury of free parking. Very pleased to hear you will want to return and look forward to your return to Plymouth. Kind Regards from staff at Alma Lodge.

Well located for the centre of Plymouth.

I stayed for a weekend whilst visiting old friends and found the staff very welcoming & friendly. The room was a double with a large on suite bath/shower room. A good full English breakfast both mornings.

Service with a Smile

I had difficulty in finding "Alma Lodge" but got there eventually. Clean, convenient, well prepared breakfast all provided with a smile. Left my face flannel behind hopefully will get it back when I return to Plymouth next?

Thank you for your review. It is sometimes great just to leave the car behind, especially when having driven for so long. The pleasure with Alma Lodge is the parking is so convenient and free. As you so quite rightly say, the bus route is handy and we are so close to the City Centre. Buses are very regular to the City Centre from here. Thank you once again for your kind words.
