History of Quality Hotel Plymouth
The Quality Hotel opens on May 1, 1970, as the Mayflower Post House
and characterize in The Herald at the time as being the finest hotel site in Europe
18 months to erect at a cost of £700,000
The building goes through the different owners, and was even the Holiday Inn, until the firm buys what was the Plymouth Hoe Moat House, in Armada Way, and renamed it in 2004.
At the same time, the Cliff Road building became the Quality Hotel.
The Site Closes Suddenly January 21, 2014
Guests are asked to leave the premises by 11 am with new arrivals having their bookings cancel while on their way to the city.
Most recently the hotel is gone leaving just a concrete slab in its place
From its smashed up interior to the random beds piled in reception we were one of the lucky ones to get in before the arson started
