Hotel Overview

The Best Western Duke of Cornwall Hotel is a wonderful place to stay in Plymouth and a true landmark. This pet-friendly hotel provides a great base from which to explore Devon, Cornwall and the Eden Project. Built as the first luxury hotel in Plymouth, it boasts an illustrious history and has had some famous guests – including explorer Ernest Shackleton, who stayed the night before setting off for the Antarctic and Laurel and Hardy.

The hotel's Victorian Gothic architecture sets the tone for its magnificent standards of food and service. You’ll love time spent in this wonderful building, but while you’re out and about, there’s plenty to enjoy too, thanks to the hotel’s excellent location. Just half a mile away is Plymouth Hoe, from which Sir Francis Drake sailed to defeat the Spanish Armada. Go a little further and you’ll find the Mayflower Steps – the point from which the Pilgrim Fathers sailed to the east coast of America in 1620 and ultimately founded the modern USA. That’s how rich in maritime history Plymouth is.

The Best Western Duke of Cornwall Hotel itself is a prestigious place to hold a wedding celebration and a great conference venue in Plymouth, with a large ballroom able to accommodate you and your guests.

A beautifully grand old building with thoroughly modern facilities throughout, it’s well worth navigating your way to Plymouth for a stay at the Best Western Duke of Cornwall Hotel.

I stayed in a single room and I can only imagine that this type of room does not get used very often otherwise the hotel would see the state it is in and do something about it... The whole hotel...

As our friends were getting married in the hotel we booked a room for the night. We booked via Booking.com as the hotel could not compete with the price we had been offered. The room itself was quiet...
