About our business

A defining figure in Plymouth’s past and present, The Duke of Cornwall Hotel was built in 1863 and has endured at the heart of Britain’s Ocean City for more than a century and a half since.

The landmark hotel’s 72 uniquely decorated bedrooms include single, double and twin rooms, so there’s an option to suit every need.

Plus, the hotel’s Superior and Luxury ranges – which include sensational four-poster suites – offer extra space and features for special occasions or indulgent treats.

Whether you’re visiting Plymouth for business or pleasure, or attending a special event, a night at the Duke is always an experience to enjoy.

Surviving two World Wars and radical changes in its surrounding environment, the hotel stands as a strong and steadfast connection to days gone by. Its splendid Victorian gothic architecture drew admiration then – and makes even more of a statement in the contemporary cityscape.
