Astor Hotel Plymouth
"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).
