I'd taken this booking as a result of a colleague going sick and I'd had to cover his course. Always dubious about going into somewhere I'd not personally booked but what a pleasant surprise. Clean, tidy, great meet and greet from owner Dave and his wife. Assisted to my room by Dave. Although my room was right at the top...

We spent 3 night.here with David and Karen the very friendly helpful owner. They have done very well with a listed building and we had a spotlessly clean and well presented ground floor room (I have mobility problems). The bathroom a little small but could not be avoided due to listing but was well presented and we managed well. Breakfast...

Very good location for Plymouth being within walking distance of The Hoe, Barbican and town centre. Proprietors, Dave and Karen have been there for long time and are happy to recommend eateries, places to visit etc.. Good choice at breakfast all cooked to order...Only issue was size of shower which was difficult to move within.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you felt the shower was too small but our showers are normal standard size due to the size of the room.

Many thanks for your review and for highlighting our cooked breakfast and convenience to the Theatre Royal and restaurants. Mentioning clean and spotless makes it all worthwhile for us.

Very good location for The Hoe, Theatre Royal etc. Room and ensuite very clean; however the bed was not very comfortable and from our room (No 5) there was some traffic noise. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Good value for what it was.

Thank Helen H
David M, Owner at Caledonia Guest House, responded to this review

We are sorry to hear that you thought the bed was uncomfortable. This is the first mention of this .We will investigate. Unfortunately we are a Listed building and the traffic noise is beyond our control and the Council will not allow us to change our windows.

Wonderful hotel. Friendly staff, clean rooms with adequate selection of beverages. Nice breakfast selection and the English cooked breakfast was one of the best I have had. The guest house is ideally situated for city centre shopping, theatre Royal and the Hoe. Fantastic!
