Lots of homely touches that made us feel at home straight away. We had great communication from Kerry both before and during our stay and we were greeted on arrival with flowers, tea, coffee, biscuits, milk etc which was a really nice touch. Thank you. We agree with a previous comment that the sofa has seen better days but we thought the bed was very comfy. It is equipped with everything you could possibly need and the icing on the cake was the super fluffy towels. Would definitely recommend.

It had everything we needed and there were plenty of buses into Plymouth so we never had to take the car. Parking in the allocated space was a bit tricky unless you have a very small car but there is parking just round the corner
