The place was so well equipped that we wanted for nothing. The owner even had milk, tea and coffee ready for us when we got there. Free wi-fi and immaculately clean. There is off road parking as well which is a bit of a luxury in Plymouth. We will be using this place again in our efforts to find a house of own in this area. .
