We had the pleasure of staying here as part of a friends wedding party. Although small, the facilities were spotless and the attention of the owners (Dave and Karen) great. Our room was super clean and provided all that we needed. Breakfast was promptly served and had a fair choice - although I would welcome more breakfast 'traditionals' such as...

Many thanks for your review. Our car park situated at the rear of the house is accessible by a narrow back lane and can take up to 6 vehicles which can include transit vans etc. We do offer a full English breakfast including a sausage but no black pudding.

Stayed here in early May, our twin room had a large double bed, a single and a good little en-suite. The room was immaculate and very comfy with tv and tea/coffee facilities. Breakfast was great and owners David and Karen were wonderful hosts, going above and beyond to help out my disabled mum. Perfect position in Plymouth between the town...

My fiancé and I stayed at the Caledonia for a short break in Plymouth and found the guest house to be value for money and a pleasant place to stay. The room and en suite were small but very clean and comfortable with the usual TV, wifi and tea & coffee tray included. Breakfast was very good with a nice...

Would stay again, yes. We visit Plymouth once a year for a memorial service on the Hoe, we will come again. Plymouth has a fabulous position overlooking the sea, lots of historical interest about the history of our country. Recommend Chloe's restaurant close by.

This has to be the best guest house that my partner and I have stayed in. Karen and David were friendly and helpful. The room we had was spotlessly clean and very well presented.

When I arrived at the guest house I was welcomed by the owner who was very friendly and polite, he advised me that the car park was just around the back of the house so that I could go and park my car which was hassle free. My room (room 4) was lovely and had been decorated with a modern...
