The Royal William Yard is an ever increasing development with new restaurants, lounge bar dining, marina and businesses.

These include the Seco Lounge, Prezzo, Bakery, The River Cottage Canteen and Deli, Wagamama, Las Iguanas, Le Bistro Pierre, Le Vignoble wine tasting and Martin Bush Gallery.

The Royal William Apartment is conveniently above the Seco Lounge, located in the heart of the development and access to all the facilities.

The Royal William apartment is a high spec apartment similar to the Brewhouse. The Royal William is above the Seco Lounge with double bay doors. So the apartment is subjected naturally to higher noticeable noise levels from the outside seating areas and Al Fresco dining. However as part of the business conditions in the royal william yard, leases and licenses, these tables have to be vacated by 22:30 pm. Most are vacated at 22:00. So it should be noted that at times of good weather the Royal William Yard atmosphere will be noted in the apartment. The apartments having heritage 1 windows are not soundproofed.

The Royal William Yard in Plymouth originally conceived by Samuel Pepys when he was secretary to the Navy in the 17th century and constructed by Sir John Rennie between 1825 and 1831. Designed as both a factory and supply depot for ships victualing needs, here the Royal Navy refueled with rum. It continued to supply right up to its closure in the early 1990s, which has now been redeveloped into a world-class development.

The Royal William holiday apartment is centrally located on the Plymouth waterfront, close to all attractions and facilities.

The Royal William (including the Brewhouse) is our most sophisticated luxury apartment with fantastic views and overlooking the marina in the Royal William Yard. It is our most popular apartment, interesting it is a favourite with our corporate clients, in particularly with VIP guest and celebrities that visit Plymouth.

The Berth fees vary on the size / length of the boat and period of stay. The period of stay is either short stay (4 hours), 24 hours, weekly or Monthly.
