The Barbican Base property offered by Plymouth Holidays occupies an unrivalled location right in the heart of the Barbican, Plymouth's historic harbour. Stroll through the picturesque cobbled lanes, discover fine dining, secret gardens, lively bars, boutique shopping and beautiful art galleries all minutes (if not seconds) from your front door. Yet despite all this, being set in a private, gated courted back from the main street, the apartment offers peace and privacy away from the bustle of the street. We are confident that no other holiday rental in Plymouth can offer a better all-round location.
The apartment itself is furnished to a high standard. It is laid out over two floors with a double bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Downstairs there is a large living room with adjoining dining area and fully-fitted kitchen (including a large fridge-freezer, oven, microwave and washing machine). The living room offers a large flat-screen TV, DVD player and hi-fi system, as well as a double sofa bed, allowing up to four people to stay in the apartment. Round the back of the property steps lead up to your own private roof garden (with table, chairs, parasol and even a small barbecue available).
Towels and linen are provided. A memory foam mattress and free, unlimited wi-fi are just some of the other features of the property to ensure you enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay. We will always look to meet our guests at the apartment to show you around and ensure you settle in. If required, we can even provide a free collection service from the local rail and coach stations.
There is plenty of on-street parking in the vicinity, although this is typically metered between 10am and 6pm. Blue badge holders can park for free. There is also a choice of public car parks within minutes of the apartment (one of which offers weekly parking for £25 for those guests requiring longer stays).
We are proud of the fact that all the electricity supplied to the property comes from 100% renewable sources so by choosing to stay with Plymouth Holidays you too can do your bit for the environment.

"had everything covered"
Superb position, right where we wanted it to be. A little loud on Saturday night, but only to be expected. Could have been a littler cleaner, when I say that it wasn't dirty just quite dusty and … More
Thank you for your review. We do give the apartment a comprehensive clean between each booking and I am sorry it wasn't as clean as it could have been for your stay. I will make sure all the nooks and crannies are given a thorough dust. As for the kitchen bin, this would of course usually have been emptied and clean; I'm sorry that this had been overlooked for your visit. Kind regards. Matthew

"Good location, clean, but disapointing insome aspcts."
Very good central location. Clean and tidy. Cooker hot plates useless, no heat at all from them. The roof terrace has no views apart from surrounding buildings and no privacy even if you were tempted to use it. There is no views out from downstairs windows, just surrounded by walls. Thank goodness we had a week of perfect weather, would have been a bit depressing being stuck indoors. We also had trouble with the shower temperature altering all the time.
Thank you for your review, although I'm a little disappointed that you didn't contact me during the stay regarding the problem you experienced with the hobs - I would have been more than happy to help. I checked all the hot plates individually after your departure and all of them were fully working (I tested them by using each to boil a saucepan of water and they all managed this quickly and without any problems). I can only think that perhaps the unit had not been turned on at the wall.
Thank you for letting me know about the shower. I hadn't had any complaints before but I will also investigate this further.
Regarding the apartment's surroundings, I'm actually very proud of its location. It couldn't be better located for the excellent tourist attractions, restaurants and bars that the city offers. You are right in the heart of the Barbican and just a few minutes from Plymouth Hoe. Granted the apartment has other buildings around it but I consider this a huge benefit as the private courtyard gives you peace and security while not meaning you have to compromise on your location. The apartment has plenty of windows and lets in a good level of light.
