Room Descriptions

Plymouth Hoe enjoys breathtaking views over Plymouth Sound and Drake's Island, protected by the breakwater. This is one of the most magnificent natural harbours in the world. There is a large expanse of public lawn with the iconic Smeaton's Tower lighthouse, beneath which is the art deco Tinside pool - open to the public for bathing during the summer months. The Hoe is steeped in history and includes the Francis Drake memorial and the Royal Citadel - a 17th century fortress. At the eastern end the historic Barbican with its ancient cobblestones and warehouse-style buildings is situated close-by and packed with art galleries antique shops, wine bars and bistros. In pure contrast to the historic setting, Plymouth is quickly becoming recognised as a superb sailing centre and there are now many excellent modern marinas offering all of the up-to-date facilities. The Royal William Yard is the latest 'go to' waterfront destination. In the past it was a naval victualing yard but more recently the old buildings have been brought back to life into a sympathetic mixture of living, working, retail and leisure space with a variety of restaurants and bars. Plymouth's main shopping centre has all the usual facilities that one would expect within a vibrant city, including modern cinema complexes and the Plymouth Theatre Royal - all a short stroll away from Elliot Street.
