Perfect accomodation in a perfect setting”

A long weekend was made more pleasurable by our lovely accommodation. Based in the Royal William Yard which has an amazing position between the Sound and the River Tamar there is plenty to see and do even when cold grey and raining. Mills Bakery is in respectfully restored naval buidings which retain their heritage. The apartment has a fantastic view and is comfortable warm and quiet with all the facilities you need.?After being shown to the apartment we were left to enjoy our break I just wish we could have stayed longer.

We enjoyed a lovely stay and would strongly recommend this to friends.

We had a very good time and we enjoyed very very much the place and everything around!

We had a wonderful stay and would definitely return ourselves and we have recommended it to our friends. Thank you.

Fantastic view on the harbour, fine bistro/restaurant only some meters away, bus station at the entrance of Royal William Yard - it had very fine day there! Elderly Couple from Germany

When we arrived, the lady who let checked us in was very helpful and was able to assist with all our questions. Great view and peaceful location. We would stay again and willingly recommend the apartments.

Beautiful apartments in a very beautiful area,would deffinitely love to come back again. Will recommend it to friends. Housekeeper very helpful and friend.


We thought it was a beautiful apartment in a terrific setting. We had a lovely time and would come again.

The apartments were great - really good value and the check in at midnight was particularly excellent. We also found the whole booking process really easy. The overall complex is stunning and having spent 4 days in Plymouth we felt we'd made the right choice.

Great week away

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our week at the apartment; whilst small and fairly basic it's perfectly suited for two.

Brilliant location with excellent restaurants so no need to cook and with the ferry right outside we hardly used the car.

Would recommend.

Nice location but the bed was tiny and spent two sleepless nights - facilities good although a little tired -cleanliness not great -found someone's hair clips on the sofa which is rather off putting

Compact but comfortable appartment in an ideal location

  • 4 of 5

The Royal William Yard is an ideal place to stay, there are many varied restaurants and drinking places plus lots of events taking place on site. There is a lot to see and do there but it is also within walking distance of the town centre and other local attractions such as the hoe and the barbican. The apartment itself is not huge, but more than big enough for a couple. The furnishings etc are of a high standard and the bed was one of the most comfortable we had ever slept in. There is everything you need, for example a washing machine and even a small dishwasher. The only thing you need to bear in mind is that the apartment is on the first floor (though there is a lift) in the middle of the building so if you have a lot of luggage it takes several trips from the car. That however was not really a big issue for us and I would definitely stay again.

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, the room was very clean and everyone was very nice to us

This is a perfect location if you want to visit Cornwall & Devon and of course there are nice places in Plymouth too

The only thing I didn't find very comfortable was that there was no space in the room to put my baby's court. So we had to share the bed with him.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week in this apartment and were delighted from the minute we arrived, the location is fantastic, we were met by Steve who couldn't do enough to help us, even helping us unload our car, we were a little concerned about the size of the apartment because of previous reviews, but didn't find it that small, the down side is the cooking area and you really would not be able to do much cooking at all as very little space but if you intend to mostly eat out its not a problem. We did take a fan and it was a godsend especially at night but all in all a fantastic holiday and would definitely recommend.
