Excellent!

5 of 5
We expected a decent flat to stay for a couple of nights, but this place was just excellent! It was airy and light, decorated with good taste and in accordance with the era of the building, and it looked like some original features had been preserved here and there. All the furniture was comfortable and solid. While there was only one double bed, the extra foldable bed and sofa bed were comfortable enough so that the rest of us could have a good night's sleep. The semi-open kitchen added even more space and was well equipped for all our cooking needs. It was even stocked with some essential foods and snacks when we arrived, which was a very positive surprise. The flat was very conveniently located for the Torpoint ferry for access to Cornwall, and had decent bus links to get to the city centre and elsewhere. Even the immediate surrounding areas had a few good pubs and charity shops worth a visit. Otherwise the surroundings were clean and quiet and family-friendly. When we start planning our next trip to Plymouth, this will be the first apartment we'll look at!
