Fodor's Review

Built in 1862, this grand Italianate mansion has been superbly restored with spacious modern rooms tastefully decorated to reflect the era in which the building was constructed; six rooms have hot tubs. Many rooms have panoramic views over the Tamar, and the property is just a quick walk from the city center. Continental and hot breakfasts are served in the elegant dining room.
