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.
