Places to Stay in the Torpoint Area

Our Pick of the Hotels, Inns and B&Bs in the area

The Grand Hotel in Plymouth is just one of many Victorian-era establishments still in business.

Torpoint itself might not be rammed with places to stay but the area, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a decent night’s stay in the surrounding area.

Plymouth was once one of the most popular holiday destinations in England and as such it has a well-earned reputation for hospitality. There’s much more on offer here than just bog-standard hotels though. In the Torpoint area you’ll find something for everyone, including cosy inns, aparthotels and pubs.

Edgcumbe Arms

On the banks of the River Tamar lies the Edgcumbe Arms, a wonderful example of a Cornish pub complete with lively locals, tasty ale and great food. With all this to offer you might be surprised that this well-established pub also has some very comfortable rooms for guests. Couples can stay for as little as £70 per night – a price that includes free Wi-Fi and full Cornish breakfast.

Drakes Wharf Aparthotel

One of the hottest properties in the area, the Drakes Wharf Aparthotel sits right on the waterfront offering guests stunning views out over the marina. Situated in Plymouth’s historic Grade 1-listed Royal William Yard this old building has been given a fresh update in recent years, complete with modern internal doors and a clean design aesthetic. Apartments start at £140 for a 2 bed flat.

Pure Serviced

Choose from one of three classy Plymouth locations on offer from Pure Serviced – a company specialising in bespoke apartments that put you right in the heart of this historic city and in the lap of luxury.

The Rusty Anchor

Housed in a Victorian town house just across from the harbour, The Rusty Anchor is an elegant six bedroomed property offering chic, stylish properties that are perfect for couples looking for a romantic getaway. Described as ‘shabby chic’ on the website, this is a truly unique place to stay and one that you shouldn’t hesitate to book – if you’re staying in the area. Rooms at The Rusty Anchor start at around £75 per night (including breakfast).

Copthorne Hotel Plymouth

Whilst some may argue that the Copthorne Hotel harks back to a rather retro age of hotels, this is an establishment that can still compete with the best of them. Set right in the centre of Plymouth, this 135-room hotel has more than enough choice and range for most budgets and makes for a great introduction to the area. Rooms start at a very reasonable £55 per night.

The Invicta Hotel

Light, modern, airy and effortlessly cool – this Victoria-era building has been carefully renovated and updated over the years, resulting in the handsome hotel that you’ll find today. Run by the Martins since 2002, they have been showered in praise in recent years from recognised brands such as Trip Advisor, Laterooms.com and the AA. Book a double-room here for as little as £125.

Torpoint Foodie Getaways

Eat your fill and then stay the night.

There are plenty of excellent takeaways in the Torpoint area.

Spring is finally here and there’s never been a better time to take a trip down to Torpoint!

We’re major foodies down here in Torpoint and there’s nothing we like more than a slap-up meal to sort us out at the end of the day. If you’re thinking of making the long trip down to see us here then you should think about booking a table at one of these restaurants before you set off. Whilst there are a wealth of decent takeaways that open late most nights, we also have a handful of cracking restaurants that you should really visit whilst you’re down with us.

These are our favourite Torpoint restaurants along with a comfy place to put your head down – once you’ve got your fill, that is:

The View

The view from this restaurant has to be seen to be believed.

There are very few restaurants in Cornwall that can rival the landscape afforded the aptly name View restaurant. This family-run establishment has been serving precisely cooked, locally sourced meals for the last fifteen years. Chef Matt Corner escaped the world of fine dining to set up his slice of seafood paradise; his restaurant is stylishly subtle, the meals are artfully prepared and the seafood is always fresh. Dinner courses start at around £20, or you can drop in for a fixed 3 course lunch from £18.

Book a couple of nights in at Rame Barton, just a half an hour walk from the restaurant. You can leave the car at this 18th Century farmhouse and stumble home with a torch in hand. Twin suites including breakfast start at £110 p/night.

The Devonport Inn

The Clock Tower Suite at the Westcroft Guesthouse offers this roll top bath.

Renovated in 2010, this immensely popular local pub is ram-packed during the summer but they’re open all year round! Dawn and Jerome Leopold are the owners here and they run a tight ship. Hailing from Lorraine in France, Jerome takes local ingredients and puts a French twist on classic pub grub dishes. Kingsand is a truly picturesque corner of Torpoint and the al fresco dining areas of the Devonport make the most of the tranquillity, with plenty of tables offering gorgeous of the bay. Lunch meals start at £6, whilst mains for dinner are around the £15 mark.

Get the true locals experience by booking into the Westcroft Guesthouse for the weekend. This artfully decorated B&B is just down the road from the Devonport Inn and makes for a fantastic home from home. Room start at a very reasonable £90 p/night.

Pirates Galley Cafe

The Chicken Kebab at the Pirate Galley Cafe is a hidden gem of Torpoint.

Keep it distinctly nautical (and affordable) by diving into the Pirates Galley Cafe for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This cosy nautically theme cafe is quintessentially Torpoint: humbly decorated with nice sea-faring touches and mismatching furniture. It’s an unfussy place that makes, amongst many other things, one of the most raved about kebabs in Cornwall. Should you wish to be lazy, you can even call in a food delivery and get this lovely grub delivered right to where you are. Get the much raved about Chicken Kebab for just £5.50.

There aren’t many Airbnb options in Torpoint but the aptly named Captains Quarter is one of them. For just £80 p/night you can stay aboard this converted boat. There’s plenty of room to relax in the cabin, which also has a couple of cosy leather seats to recline in after a day of exploring.
