The fringes of Dartmoor

A travel blog entry by boomermaxwell

Dartmoor is extensive high ridge country north of Plymouth, with open grassland, forests, gullies and gorges, wild ponies, sheep, army, prison, pubs, and lots of legends.

We had lunch with Allan and Lesley and Jake at a pub run by an award winning chef, then did a loop up over the moor on our way to the next call at Ivybridge.

One last entry

Since we got back from our travels almost 18 months ago, a fair bit has happened.

This will be the last ever entry in this blog before I call it "Finished".

We had a great reunion with all my family for my Grandad's birthday and it was emotional seeing him surrounded by all his nearest and dearest and remembering fondly those who are no longer with us. Sadly he passed away in March ...

Whitsand Bay, Cawsand, Mt Edgecumbe

A travel blog entry by boomermaxwell

We stayed with good friends John and Liz Ellison in the lighthouse keepers' cottage on Whitsand Bay. The shoreline has been devastated by the winter storms, so the white sand of previous years has been removed to expose great bars of rock.

On the peninsula there are small villages, one of the prettiest being Cawsand.

Also the Mt Edgecumbe estate is home to an extensive and spectacular carmelia ...

Plymouth

Plymouth has always been a strategic port for England, none more so than when the Spanish armada called. Part of the armada anchored in the bay, whereupon Francis Drake declared he had to finish his game of bowls before sorting them out. The storm gods were on his side, and the rest is ...

Aaaaaand I'm off!

What an emotional few days its been! Not crying when I expected to and crying at unexpected moments. Probably not helped by my organisational skills (or lack of them) and leaving EVERYTHING to the final few days to sort out; including jabs, rucksack buying, moving out, selling belongings, packing, opening bank accounts. Remaining surprisingly calm and not ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Plymouth

Maybe I was just unlucky

from

I stayed here on business for one night in July 2005 at a rate of 92GBP including breakfast, for an Executive room which was on the 10th floor with good views over Plymouth.

Not what I expected

from

Having read some of these reviews I was apprehensive. i needn't have worried the staff were helpful and friendly. I needed help opening my case and a maintenance guy was sent up to the 9th floor promptly and opened the case with a smile. My room was clean and had all that I needed for my short stay. The gym was small but again friendly. There were renovations going on but not too intrusive. Food was excellent although a little pricey but I chose to eat there. And i lost my scalf but the next day it was hanging in the restaurant for me to collect at Breakfast. Just a small tip book the 9th and 10th floor it has been recently renovated(2003)

Nice hotel, great service

from

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights at the start of Jan 2005. We had booked 2 double rooms but our friends couldn't make it. We were upgraded, free, to a better room. The first night I went down with 'flu and my wife dined alone. Not an auspicious start but the staff were excellent and offered any help she may need.

The hotel was of the usual, high, Moat House standard given that it could be any good hotel in any city in the world.

The food was good. A fact I only discovered on the last night when I felt like eating again.

All in all, we'd happily return and may well do.

Threw away lost property!! Unbelievable attitiude.

from

We left a very small bag behind in this hotel. After contacting the hotel, it was retuned to us by post - MINUS THE CONTENTS!!

We contacted the hotel to ask them to keep the contents until someone could pick them up, but they had already 'disposed of the contents'. UNBELIEVABLE!! There was not even an apology, for this appalling behaviour.

I would not recommend this hotel at all.

Liked the Moat Inn Hotel

from

Contrary to some remarks we read, we were very happy with our stay at The Moat House, the staff were very very accomodating and treated us with great kindness on our arrival. We came from Canada in the early hours of the morning, and the young lady at the desk was most kind in getting us a room,which was clean and roomy and we were most comfortable during our stay, we would highly recommend The Moat and would like to thank all those who made us most welcome.

Horrible hotel

from

Absolutely disgusting, very overpriced, lifts don't work. Had to queue 30 mins to check out. No where to sit in the bar had to sit in closed restaurant .

Very disappointed - the premier lodge is a much better bet

Disappointed

from

Disappointed, nearly 100 for a night in a room that should have been renovated ten years ago.

But, rooms have good views and are clean, staff were efficient and friendly and there is a good (if a little expensive) bar.

It is a bit of a cheek to charge guests 3.50 for parking though, especialy after having paid so much for such a sub standard room.

Loved it!

from

A lovely hotel in an excellent location with stunning views. Right by the sea and all the nightlife but far enough away to avoid the noise.

Fab indoor pool, sauna and gym. Nice, clean, spacious and well-decorated room and ensuite. Highly recommend this one.

Nice hotel

from

This is a fine example of a good 4 star hotel as it fulfils most requirements of a four star property. The room was clean and spacious with some view. Admiring the view from the penthouse house at breakfast time is indeed an enjoyable experience. Though I cannot say the hot breakfast buffet was the best around. Location wise, it is a short scroll to the Barbican, park and hoe; away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre, ideal for a relaxing weekend. Car parking is charged separately and be warned that the spaces are microscopic!

The best in the west...?

from

I like Plymouth. I spent three years there at University and now go back about twice a year to catch up and relax.
