We could not have been made to feel more welcome. Our host was lovely. She was knowledgable about the local area &norhing was too much of a problem. Our only regret was we could not stay longer. Can not thank the Rusty Anchor more for the way she made us feel at home. Thank you so much for a short but memorable trip.

The room had a seperate bedroom off it, with a single bed and it's own tv, which was perfect for our daughter. The en suite was just right too and Jan had put lovely little touches to the room like cath kidston mugs and beside reading. The beds were very comfy and the room was warm and felt like a home from home. The english breakfast was delicious, and my daughter ate faster than I've ever seen! Jan gave us really good tips for local places to visit and was very accommodating of my husband who ran the half marathon during our stay. I would highly recommend staying here, we left feeling like we'd stayed with family. We will definitely book again if we stay in Plymouth.

Going to a new place for the first time can be a little daunting . . . . However, young gladys and her owners were welcomed into the folds of the lovely and rather quirky "rusty anchor"by Jan.The moment young gladys was through the door she was off the lead exploring. She had so much fun and excitement that the following morning she was struggling to keep her pretty eyes open at breakfast(even with a yummy sausage in front of her!) Gladys says that the only negative thing about her fabulous stay was that her mummy should have booked more nights there to have more fun!!

Wholesome, friendly and tasteful. Great location, quiet street quick to seafront and restaurants of good standard. We opted to walk to and from historic areas and take ferry boats to local areas on day trips, all great and easy to do. The life sports Centre and park with pitch and put was used by us too. Would suit swimmer's and sports persons to stay here as Jan cooks breakfast to suit your needs. Some tiredness in deco and our bathroom was not really good enough, it was just a cupboard in our room and was too small and dark and noisey, but I think we were unlucky compared to other rooms we saw. Our son's bathroom was great and so we used his most of all. Lovely cotton sheets. Jan made it all very welcoming and that was the winning aspect for us as will as the location being so convenient and the decor not being pretentious but having some items of character. Loved the breakfast room too.

Excellent welcome, rustic and homely - Rating 5/5

Jan is such a welcoming host and the rooms were immaculate. Being situated right near the coast,the Rusty Anchor Guesthouse was in a stunning location. In the morning, it was nice to wake up to a home cooked full English breakfast to start our day.As we came back a bit later in the evening from dinner we didn't manage to catch the wifi code, but that's OK.I would definitely recommend the Rusty Anchor Guesthouse! It was a lovely stay.

service - Rating 5/5

having first been astonished at the prospect of a double booking and being requested to share! - The proprietor managed to correct the situation.Our bedrooms were clean, comfortable and quiet.Followed by a very enjoyable full English breakfast.Convenient position for The Hoe and Barbican made this guest house an excellent choice.

Lovely and quirky B&B - Rating 5/5

Had a lovely stay for 1 night at The Rusty Anchor as was meeting my daughter who is at Plymouth University. Owner was very friendly and even gave me £1 for parking as I didn't have any change. (Parking outside is free from 4pm to 10am so only had to pay for an hour). Nice, cosy, quirky house in pretty area and close to all amenities. Thank you.

Thoroughly enjoyable stay, Jan creates a very different kind of B &B experience, a relaxed and friendly experience that is low key and natural. I felt energised!

3rd stay at Rusty Anchor - Rating 5/5

This was the third time we had stayed at the Rusty Anchor in the last three years and we will be staying again at the Rusty Anchor later in the year when our son graduates from Plymouth University . We found a real gem when we first stayed at the Rusty Anchor and when visiting Plymouth we would not consider staying anywhere else. The accommodation is clean , convenient for the Hoe and above all Jan the proprietor takes real pride in her business and could not be more helpful , kind and welcoming . Her cooked breakfasts are also very scrummy !
