Every one of the 12,000 guests we have welcomed since taking over at the Rainbow Lodge in early 2007 is genuinely unique. We have been amazed at the fantastic variety of people that have stayed with us - it's one of the things we most enjoy about running a guest house.

It follows of course that everyone has different information needs, and here are some of the great variety of websites with information about Plymouth that different guests have accessed through our free WiFi while they were with us:

4 Norwegian bikers riding Harleys had www.plymouthbikenight.org as one of their favourites.

Two keen golfers that weighed up www.staddonheightsgolf.co.uk, www.elfordleigh.co.uk and www.bigburygolfclub.com and decided on which was best before going to plant their tees.

A stately home fan and his daughter who visited www.nationaltrust.org.uk before visiting Saltram, Antony House, Buckfast Abbey and Castle Drogo during their stay.

Australians and New Zealanders who look for their forbears on a site like www.uk1841census.com and then go looking for the street and even the house where their ancestors once lived.

The incurable romantic that came and borrowed our laptop on an impulse to find and search www.victoriasewart.com for jewellery and then sneaked out to buy diamond earrings for his wife.

On this page we can't possibly list all the links that future guests might need but below are some obvious ones to vet you going. And when you are with us we are happy to help you search further to find what you are particularly looking for.
