Imperial Plymouth

Hotel in Plymouth
Image by

The pick of the small hotels on Plymouth Hoe is in this 1840s town house that once belonged to an admiral. A few heritage features remain but it has been thoroughly updated and feels quite modern, with beige carpets, wooden furniture and the odd bit of Orla Kiely wallpaper.

There's also a 12-space car park.
