The Phantele is a family-owned and operated bed & breakfast in the Stoke area of Plymouth. We pride ourselves on fresh decor throughout the Phantele, as well as cleanliness, tasty generous breakfasts, and a friendly welcoming atmosphere.
Our building, constructed in 1893, has resulted in accommodation that is modest in size and distributed over three floors accessible by stairs. We have complemented the historic constraints and character through the use of white linens, bright paint and fabrics and shabby chic furniture. Natural light floods the halls and our guest bedrooms all of which have their own personality. We display some local artists paintings and photos throughout the property of the surrounding areas of Plymouth and Devon.
We are only a few minutes by car, 15 minutes by bus and half an hour on foot from the city centre. A short taxi ride from Plymouth Railway Station or Bretonside Bus Station brings you to our doorstep. Devonport Naval Base is in walking distance. HMS Rayleigh is easily accessible via the Torpoint ferry and there is free parking on the adjacent side street to our premises.
Phantele Guest House’s prices include a cooked breakfast with a range of choices. Discounted rates for long-term stays are negotiable. Please click the booking button to book online and check availability. We are happy to cater to health and dietary needs – phone or email with special requests.
We look forward to your visit!

An Important Centre of England’s Maritime History
Plymouth is renowned as the starting point for many historic voyages. The Pilgrim Fathers set out from the Barbican’s Mayflower Steps for America; Sir Francis Drake played his famous game of bowls on Plymouth Hoe before sailing off to defeat the Spanish Armada. Sir Francis Chichester began and ended his first solo circumnavigation of the globe from the city; Captain Cook and Charles Darwin embarked from the busy harbour to explore the southern oceans. The Royal William Yard attests to the importance of Plymouth to Great Britain’s seafaring and navigation.
A Desirable Destination
Spectacular sea views from Plymouth Hoe and the Barbican make this waterfront city one of Britain’s most beautiful locations. Plymouth nestles between Dartmoor National Park and the Atlantic Ocean. A mild climate and open green areas make Plymouth one of the best city environments in the UK. The city’s low crime rates, vibrant waterfront nightlife and friendly locals make it a desirable place to visit or live. For those with onward destinations, Brittany Ferries depart for France from Millbay.
Heritage and Culture
Smeaton’s Tower, an operational lighthouse in the 18th and 19th centuries and rebuilt on the Hoe, is Plymouth’s most photographed icon. Standing at its base and looking west, you glimpse the rolling hills of Mount Edgecombe Country Park with its historic house and garden. A short stroll behind you are the Theatre Royal and Plymouth Pavilions, featuring live performances. Near by are the Aquarium, City Museum & Art Gallery, and The House, Plymouth University’s new performing arts centre.
Shopping & Dining
Plymouth is the biggest city in Devon and has the largest number of businesses and shops in the region. The city centre has a three-story indoor mall, a wide range of shops and large department stores, and a city market. Plymouth Barbican is a great source of the unusual – shoppers can browse through a variety of independent businesses, including antique shops and art galleries. Afterwards, enjoy a drink or a meal in one of the Barbican’s many ‘al fresco’ venues, offering views across the Marina.
