  • Historical site which has been restored and renovated with assistance from Plymouth University. The well maintained gardens are quiet and peaceful. Restaurant beside the Reservoir is operated by the University. Disabled access is not so good.
  • Genuinely peaceful and beautiful, if small, piece of local history in the middle of the town centre.
  • I love standing here watching the carp, there's some huge ones - the cafes pretty good as well.
  • Calm, quiet green space on North Hill. The fountains in the reservoir are lovely in the summer and the cafe does BBQs on Thursdays.
  • Friendly town. Can spend a relaxing afternoon here.

Where to stay in Plymouth

Lodging in Plymouth range from stylish brand names and cozy B&Bs, to affordable self-catering apartments and private inns. To be near the city's main attractions, stay near the waterfront. Farther inland, you can explore a world of less expensive but just as comfortable boutique hotels and hostels, all within walking distance of the city's finest shops, restaurants, and bars. For an even less expensive alternative, consider staying in the quiet suburbs. Though a bit far from the city center, suburban hotels offer top-quality rooms at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains.
