"Affordable Luxury"?

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 26, 2011

"Affordable Luxury" is what this hotel claims to offer on its website.

The word "luxury" I might disagree with but The Astor is certainly affortable and whilst perhaps not as ostentatiously luxurious as the other so-called "luxury" hotels in Plymouth this hotel is defintely a bargain for the money.

The building is a looker and the location, just off The Hoe, is ideal for anyone's purposes; romantic, city visiting, touring or even business. It's central, easy to find and on a quiet road where everything you could want is within 10 minutes walk.

Unique Quality: On my visit I enjoyed a nice simple check-in (booked through booking.com) and the leggy receptionist was a pleasure to deal with.

The room itself, with its little mirco balcony (I had one of the rooms overlooking the front door) was tightly spacious but sufficiently so for everything I needed - comfy bed, hot shower, work desk, working internet and even working light bulbs in every light fitting.

Great breakfast, friendlily-served, along with copious coffee made for a perfect start to a working day.

I wouldn't call it "luxury" but I'd definitely stay here again if the price is right. Good Hotel.

Directions: At the west end of The Hoe - if arriving by train get a taxi unless you like walking (or are a skinflint like me: in which case walk 20 mins).
