“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 friendl.


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.

Beautiful apartment sited in a gorgeous area. We were very comfortable and this apartment had everything we needed, after a long drive from Newcastle we were able to make a hot drink as soon as we got there. There was loads of space and it was very clean and homely our only problem was the toilet didn't flush properly. We had a lovely stay and would definately use this apartment again. I would highly recommend this accommodation . Thank you so much for the hospitality.

One night stay June 2016

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well appointed and in a great location. The welcome was warm and knowledgable. We didn't use them but there are plentiful bars and restaurants within a five minute walk. Two things; the first was that the bin wasn't emptied after the last tenant, as such a rotten curry smell was wafting around the apartments. The second is more of a watch out - you need to make sure you have registered your car prior to arrival, otherwise you might get a ticket. Overall a nice place in a great location. We would stay again if we had the need.

short break.

  • 5 of 5

Having only one key and fob caused some issues as the group had to stay together or one person stayed at the property when the others went out + one of the bedrooms had no electric points. The extractor fan in the bath room and kitchen were faulty.

Very 'on trend' apartment but lacking comfort. We were six adults and the pull out sofa in lounge was only suitable for children. Bathroom radiator position right next to toilet no controls and extremely hot, very dangerous. Seating in lounge area very uncomfortable one of the sofas was supported by a yellow pages phone directory and a next catalogue, area very much a concrete jungle with no outlook from appartment, disappointed would not return
