Guestbook comments from the owner

“Lovely! Compact & Cosy, everything at your finger tips!”

My two adult daughters & I had a lovely two night stay in this ideal, fully equipped flat. Captains Rest was the perfect choice. We had everything we needed to go out exploring for the day then come in for the evening to cook our meals & chat around the table. Complimentary wine was a bonus. Thank you Lee for being in phone contact & directing us.

Highly recommend Captains Rest, I am so pleased we found you.

“A Tidy flat, close to some fantastic Scenery”

Very pleased with the flat and with the owner who was more than happy to help with anything I needed. There is parking right outside the flat and the location means you are ten minutes from the wonderful harbourside,is great for exploring Dartmoor and so many other areas. The city centre is also quite nice.

“Arrived to a warm welcome, apartment lovely and clean .”

Well equipped, just like being at home, a lovely complimentary bottle of wine, fruit and flowers.

Good accommodation in Plymouth

  • 4 of 5

As described apartment. Good easy parking and access, close to all you need Would stay here again if needed. Could do with an airing - smelt a not musty, though it is a Victorian house.

Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here and many thanks to Lee for little extras and flexibility.

Lovely quiet house with everything required for our break.

Added bonus that it was within walking distance of the reason for the trip... 'Sir' Rod Stewart at Home Park.
