8.45km from Maristow ParkWith the world turned upside down at the moment our holiday this year was 10 nights in Devon instead of our usual continental destination. We chose this hotel mainly for its ideal location on the outskirts of Plymouth giving us easy access into historic Plymouth as well as easy access to Dartmoor and the attractive villages. Also the drive across to Westward Ho! and Dartington crystal was reasonable. The hotel itself was clean and comfortable with very easy access. The service was very good and the staff were extremely helpful, friendly and very welcoming. As we are getting on in years check in changed us to a ground floor room with easy access to our car. The bar area and restaurant were well decorated and comfortable as was the lounge area. Clearly during these strange times distancing and Covid regulations were over-riding considerations but the staff worked very well within the statutory restrictions. Overall we did not feel worried about how things were being done. We had booked B&B, opting for the buffet breakfast rather than the full cooked. It came with a pot of porridge and a jug of hot water to put in it, croissant with butter and jam, breakfast biscuits, yoghurt, an apple and a drink, I opted for the coffee. In the event we also used the restaurant for our evening meals as it had a good choice of very good food and we could have wine without then having to drive back to the hotel. The refurbishment of the rooms had been put back because of Covid problems but we found our room satisfactory, clean and comfortable with an efficient shower. We had seen revues that said that the rooms could get a bit hot so we took a fan with us and found it useful on three particularly hot days, a minor point. We had also seen revues that said that the hotel was near busy roads causing traffic noise but we did not experience this.
