As a boutique hotel, Plymouth’s Duke of Cornwall offers a stunning aesthetic experience. The building itself is a shining example of Victorian gothic architecture, and stands as a true icon of the city. Stepping into the grand but welcoming entrance hall, the impact of its style and luxury unfolds further. Beautiful spaces, ornate period details and high ceilings bring drama. Enjoy a fascinating glimpse of history throughout this unique hotel in the heart of Plymouth.
The Duke boasts a variety of public spaces, each with its own distinctive character.
Just off the entrance hall, you’ll find the lounge, where wood-panelled walls, chesterfield sofas and a stone fireplace create a classic but cosy atmosphere. The restaurant, with its grand columns and dazzling chandelier, adds a further dimension – plus a fitting setting for our sensational fine dining experience. And the fabulous ballroom, perfect for dances and banquets, brings yet more style and glamour in this highly individual boutique hotel.
Another of the hotel’s distinctive architectural gems is its sweeping Grade II Listed staircase.
This light-filled stairway, with its generous proportions and ornate details, is a magnificent sight. Plus, it provides the perfect backdrop for photographs at weddings and other special occasions.
Climb the staircase and you’ll you discover the private rooms on the Duke’s upper floors. Here, the hotel’s sense of grandeur continues. Its 72 bedrooms are each individually furnished and decorated, with exceptional results. Each has been lovingly styled to complement the high ceilings, large windows and period details of these stunning rooms. All of which enhance the experience of boutique luxury for guests in this unique Plymouth hotel.
