Will return to this accommodation. It was cheap so of course it isn't top class but the breakfast was fab and the area was terrific. Most people staying were watersporting, we were just passing through but it was friendly and did what it said on the box. Rooms were basic and small - but what do you need. Clean and... More

Called in to the Iso cafe on weekend. Make sure you log your number plate at reception (I've been caught for a parking ticket before). The sofa seating is pretty uncomfortable and would be quite hard for an older person to get out of! We wanted a light lunch so ordered toasties and some cheesy chips. The brie toastie was... More

I have used the centre for many years, It has always been expensive to keep a sailing dinghy here and as each season passes the place seems to grow further into disrepair. If you can get into the changing room when there isn't a group of screaming unsupervised school children you will notice that they are falling apart around you.... More

We were going out to lunch at the Mountbatten Pub but forgot it was firework night in Plymouth and there was nowhere to park so we ended up at the water sports centre in desperation. However, it was very good - the meals - fish and chips were excellent - and the staff really put themselves out to help us.... More

Weather was not kind for diving so that was cancelled therefore more time then normal was spent in the room. The rooms at the center are just not suitable for those that need to spend time in their rooms. We booked a twin en-suite room and we got a room with bunk beds and when I spoke to reception I...

We used this location as part of a group scuba diving trip. The accommodation was basic but was what we expected and was warm and dry after a day on the water. The bar served cold beer and the breakfast was freshly cooked and set us up for the day. ALL of the staff we encountered were helpful and more... More

The centre is poorly managed, bar serves plastic beer, the food is awful and the car park is run by the mafia - shame really as its location is superb.

The Centre was incredibly helpful in helping our family find somewhere to stay after we had trouble with our previously booked hotel. The staff (especially Daryl!) were welcoming and kind; we ended up staying there and had a wonderful time.

My boyfriend and I decided to have a go at stand up paddle-boarding for the first time, we both like being in the sea and attempt surfing when we can, so we booked onto the SUP taster session a few weeks back.
