“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.

Girls few days in Plymouth

We were visiting our sister who lives in Royal William Yard and so this flat was perfect! We love the area and the flat was very stylish, the décor of a high standard and very comfortable. Just a few minor things that need to be sorted including the fan oven which did not work and the drain in the wash basin in the bathroom which was slow to clear. The bed nearest the door in the twin room needs to be replaced as the slats broke every time I lay on it (and I wouldn't class myself as being that heavy!). However, I would say it was very good value for the three of us for 3 nights , and much better than staying in a hotel.

Stunning apartment in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

10 Clarence in Royal William Yard is a stunning apartment, upmarket, comfortable and has great facilities. The mixture of textures in the apartment, with stone, wood and steel, and the high ceilings and stunningly massive doors make the overall look of the place incredible. The beds are very comfortable, the shower spot on, and the facilities include all the extras one might need, for example a washing machine and ironing board. Royal William Yard is beautiful, steeped in history, with lots of restaurants and pubs. We missed out on going to the wine bar unfortunately, but we will definitely be back. We enjoyed the half-hour ferry trip to The Barbican at £3 each - a lovely boat trip :) A tact from the Barbican to Royal William Yard on a Saturday night at 1030pm was only £7. I can't recommend the place enough. A lot of "oooh's and ahh's" when we walked in from everyone, and a lovely place to stay.

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.
