General - the Future Inn Plymouth is a modern and spacious, 143 bedroom purpose built hotel, situated just 4 miles from the City Centre and within easy access to Dartmoor National Park. It only opened in March 2006 so it is still fairly new. The hotel offers ample free parking, rare for most hotels in Plymouth. There are different types of bedrooms available, and all rooms can sleep up to 4 people being equipped with either 1 Canadian sized double bed and a sofa bed, or 2 Canadian sized double beds. There are also King Suites which you can upgrade to for just 25 and these rooms are twice the size as a standard room, they have a huge Canadian sized king size bed and the other room is a lounge with sofa, second TV, dining table, chairs and even a fridge. All bedrooms have flat screen TV's with free Internet access, although limited to checking your emails through the TV, access to movies on demand and a selection of music. There is also a broadband point if you wish to connect your laptop to the Internet, this is charged at 7.95, very reasonable.

Rooms are a good size, have air-conditioning, the beds are very comfortable and the whole room is very clean including the bathroom.
