Bed and breakfast accommodation in Plymouth

Rainbow Lodge

29 Athenaeum Street, The Hoe, Plymouth, PL1 2RQ. Tel. 01752 229 699.

This converted Georgian home is just five minutes’ walk from the City Centre and a couple of minutes away from The Hoe. En-suite rooms vary in price depending on size and cheaper standard rooms (with no en-suite facilities) are available. You can skip breakfast and pay less – which we think is a nice touch!

Bowling Green

9 – 10 Osborne Place, Lockyer Street, The Hoe, Plymouth, PL1 2PU. Tel.  01752 209090

This bed and breakfast lodging is so named because it’s right opposite the famous bowling green where Sir Francis Drake reputedly finished his game before repelling an invasion by the Spanish Armada. It’s in a great location with views over the Hoe – close to the city centre but not in the path of noisy night time revellers. Business clients will appreciate the free Wi-Fi.

They’ll even do an early breakfast for you for if you’ve got a ferry to catch. They go to a huge amount of trouble with their hanging baskets and plant pots in the summer months – so much so that they scooped first place in their category in the Plymouth in Bloom contest in 2007!
