Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gerrycj Plymouth Hoe
My room was on the 9th floor and had great views of the city but, the windows were dirty and did not open so my photos were not clear
The Penthouse bar and restaurant was on the top floor of the hotel and had great 180 degree views it's well worth visiting.
The hotel is located in the Historical area of Plymouth so its easy to walk to the Docks and Hoe.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Befrank. Handy for a visit to the Theatre.
My wife and I have been staying in the Holiday Inn on Plymouth Hoe for many rears, just short stays for Theatre visits and Veterans get togethers. We have always been made welcome and comfortable in the large rooms and roomy beds. We usually have a view across the Park. The dining room has views over the Hoe and out to sea. We enjoy a great breakfast and eat at least one evening meal which is always well cooked and served. We look forward to further visits and hope you can maintain this very high level of service for the very reasonable price. W.F.McClay

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Loobie6 Noisy building works spoilt our stay
The Hotel itself was fine and I appreciate that they needed to replace windows at the hotel but I am astounded that they put us into the room right next door to where the very noisy building works were being carried out.
We were not warned as I was extremely alarmed on exiting the bathroom wearing just a towel as 2 men appeared at the window on scaffolding that was being slowly raised mechanically.
It totally spoilt our stay. I did complain as was assured we would be given a refund on the price of our room upgrade I would have expected that to be for the 2 nights not just the one

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessTraveller11 A bit worn down and SLOOW internet
The hotel is quite worn down and could use a makeover but it's the internet connection alone that makes me select another hotel in Plymouth next time. Car park is also VERY tight with space. Location is great though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Double-T Thank you "housekeeping"
The stay was perfectly fine. The room was enormous. I can't comment on the food because I didn't eat there at all. The hotel is centrally located, and perfect for my purposes ( I have a friend who lives a few hundred yards away). However it was expensive and the prices seemed to change from day to day.
One minor gripe, the underground car park is tiny and spaces tight. I have a large car and had to pass up a number of spaces which were too tight to manoeuvre into. Only after the last turn and almost at the exit did I find a space. It was 8.30 in the evening, so I guess most guests had already parked.
On the other hand, a major PLUS. I left a charger in my room. When I spoke to "housekeeping " they found it and said they'd post it to me. IT WAS DELIVERED WITHIN 24 HOURS.
Thank you "housekeeping".

The weekend visit was to celebrate an important birthday and the Hotel met all my possible requirements.
The staff are both professional and friendly.
Every facility was excellent.
The value for money is offered at every cost.

As a Platinum member for years (& for a number of years), when in the area I always look to this hotel for accommodation. However most of the time the rates are too high, don't know why because the Hotel is in need of a renovation. The Hoe sells this Hotel, not the decor, which is a throwback to the old Queens Moat House days. When I do book the Hotel, I always have to ask for an upgrade room (usually declined! even when they are still selling upgrade rooms.)
Booked in for business purposes last week, again no upgrade & I had to ask several times to get the "upgrade" bottles of water sent to the room, definitely do not recognise Platinum IHG members.
Upon arrival found out why the majority of Hotels in Plymouth were fully booked, on the Hoe was a MTV music festival & the noise in the Hotel was horrendous, no apologies from the Hotel who were charging even higher rates than they normally do, the noise went on for 3 nights! Obviously not the Hotels fault, but to charge even higher rates?

Friendly, efficient staff helpful at all times. Room comfortable and quiet. Views from the restaurant among the best in Britain..a real delight to sip a glass of wine while watching the Brittany Ferry sailing across Plymouth Sound as the sun went down over Cornwall.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kennyb55 Disappointed customer
I stay at this hotel at least once a month and am a platinum member of the companies rewards scheme, I was booked in to the hotel for three nights from 14th July, I was disappointed to find my room did not have water or a biscuit which I have always had in the past, when I asked at reception if there was a reason for this the young girl just said you are not entitled to them. The shower area was also a little grubby with quite a lot of mildue on the tiles, I do realise that the hotel is due a refurbishment but it's still disappointing. I was also disappointed to find out on my arrival that there was a concert on in the hoe for two nights and that there would be loud music on till 11.00 at night. Overall this was a disappointing business trip.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Debs63 Comfortable room and good breakfast with great view
The room was clean and comfortable with two large double beds. The furniture however in the room was quite worn and was not of a standard I would expect. however that did not deter from the whole experience and we slept extremely well. Staff were very friendly and efficient and there was always somebody to ask if you needed anything. Breakfast was served on the top floor with a fabulous view every morning. it was self service but the choice was good and items were topped up regularly so everything was fresh; staff in the restaurant were efficient and friendly, clearing away regularly. Overall for what we paid we were very happy with our stay and would definitely return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ange eg great experience
This was a very comfortable room, with good quality linens and pillows. The front-desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Only problem was with the tiny parking spaces in the carpark. Location of hotel was excellent - very central to everything - we were able to walk just about everywhere.

Excellent stay. Great room with great view. Interior of rooms need a little work. This was the first room in all our travels that my wife hasn't asked to move after the first night!!!! We had several issues which were all attended to immediately.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tractor girl Spectacular views
The hotel is well positioned, within easy walking distance of a large shopping area and right on The Hoe which has beautiful views. The hotel staff are all very helpful and also knowledgeable. The food in the restaurant was good and varied but the most impressive thing was the view from the 10 floor restaurant over the hoe, it is spectacular and cameras are definately recommended!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cazgamlin Fantastic hotel in a brilliant location!
Situated on Plymouth Hoe, there are stunning views of the fabulous harbour and coastline from the Penthouse floor. A very nice breakfast is served in the restaurant on this floor and the staff are very friendly and efficient. There was a long queue on checking in but the staff at reception dealt with this quickly and with little fuss. I stayed in an Executive seaview room and was very pleased. It was clean and comfortable, and there was plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits and bottled water provided. If you need your stock replenished or you've forgotten your toothbrush, toothpaste, shower gel etc... then the staff are more than willing to provide you with whatever you need!
For those who wish to shop, it's only a 3-4 minute to walk to the high street shops and a further 5 minutes to Drake Circus shopping centre. If you are looking for something to eat or drink then you are only a 10 minute walk from the popular Barbican area where you will find plenty of pubs and restaurants.
Overall I had an excellent stay here and would definitely use the hotel again and recommend to others.

We stayed here for a wedding and was very pleased with our large room. It was very clean and the bed was very comfortable.
The staff were very friendly throughout the hotel.
The Ballroom was magnificent for the wedding reception and Plymouth is a beautiful city to stay in.
Would definitely come back again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sorry traveller Never again
How can the Holiday Inn think it is acceptable to put paying guests in a grubby room with badly stained carpets, a bathroom that smells of stale urine and a 6 foot high black wall 2 foot away from the window completely obscuring any view? There are obvious staffing issues with bickering and arguing in front of guests both in the bar/restaurant and overheard when calling room service. The room service was dire, 55 minuets from calling them and being snapped at when calling back to enquire where the food was, to a wrap with some grey sludge inside and half a lettuce leaf on the side, not quite the chicken breast with crunchy salad advertised! There are cheaper, cleaner and better hotels in Plymouth.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Josieann Great location and helpful, friendly staff
Stayed for 2 nights last weekend - had a fabulous time and couldn't fault it. My partner, daughter & I had a family room which was spacious & clean. The bathroom was small and a bit dated but adequate for our needs. The staff on reception were friendly and helpful as were the staff in the penthouse bar & restaurant. We were given some vouchers so breakfast for the three of us cost a total of £15!! The variety and standard on offer was excellent and the views from the penthouse across the Hoe were stunning. Plymouth in general was superb with lots to do & see from Smeatons Tower to the Aquarium, the Barbican to Royal William Yard. Well worth a visit and looking forwards to returning!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LucyKaty STAY IN PLYMOUTH HOE
Overall I found it a good experience although the service at breakfast was not great and at twice (out of four occasions) the bacon ran out and was replaced by bacon that was barely cooked. I certainly could not eat it, and neither could the rest of my party.
Most of the staff at breakfast time were good, we were shown to our table and asked if we required tea or coffee, which was bought straight away. However, on a couple of occasions, we were shown to our table and NOT asked, and after five or ten minutes we had to ask staff for our drink.
The bar was very nice and staff were friendly and efficient. The rooms overall were fine, but we felt the whole hotel could do with a bit of a re-furbishment.
We booked a parking space on arrival at £3 per night and when we checked the bill we had been charged an additional £5 per night for a reserved parking space which we did not request and did not receive. This amount was deducted but could easily have been missed by someone who hadn't already checked what was owed.
Swimming pool was barely deep enough for a swim and the one time I tried to go in the steam room I had to come straight out again as it was burning hot .

The best hotel in Plymouth for location.
Staff were very attentive and polite.
Bathroom very small and water from bath took a long time to drain away.
Car park on site is a big bonus.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MadAxeManUK I'm sure that it was lovely in the '80s.
A tired and unmodernised throw-back to the 1980's.
The windows were poorly fitting, Aluminium framed, did not lock closed, and offered no noise attenuation. The constant braying from the seagulls was quint for the first hours, but not the rest of the night. The bathroom had broken tiles and sealant, although the shower had been updated since instillation.
Being in the penthouse suite I was excited: this was quickly dashed. It was a cramped 'bun fight' with too many people for the size of room, the choice was 'modest' and the quality fair.
Staff were generally pleasant enough, but not all of them were particularly welcoming.
The only redeeming feature: Location.

The Holiday Inn Plymouth has been a favourite hotel for 7-8 years partly for it's central location and Elliots penthouse restraurant with It's stunning panoramic view over Plymouth Sound and not to forget the great food.
Parking is easy and the staff are always attentive and friendly.
Rooms are generally spacious and comfortable with good quality furniture although would benefit from a makeover.
I highly recommend this hotel and will stay again when visiting the area.
