Very clean and spacious room! Bed was slightly small for a double, but I'm being picky! I cannot fault the cleanliness, customer service or food. It's a shame that so much of the outside was covered in scaffolding but I was warned about this at the time of booking so can't complain! Easy access to the city centre. We had... More

We booked 7 rooms for a family 50th birthday celebration over Friday/Saturday nights. So lots of people with lots of different requirements! All were totally satisfied by this hotel. Rooms are clean and tidy with comfortable beds - and if you get a chance to upgrade to the 4 poster room then you won't be disappointed. But what marks this... More

As you can see by my rating, I did not have a good experience at the new continental hotel. The building was falling apart, inside and out. The room I stayed in was very basic and unappealing. The fitness center is in desperate need of a refurbish as was many other areas of the complex. I assume that once upon... More

Plymouth is blessed with superb restaurants, so going to a restaurant for the first time can be slightly worrying, especially when you go in and it is very quiet on a Friday evening. People looking to eat at Steve's Brasserie should have no such worries as the place is clean, well set out and the staff very friendly. We had... More

My partner and I stayed for two nights last weekend (fri/sat) and were a little apprehensive seeing the scaffolding around the hotel however we were greeted by a very attentive receptionist who checked us in. The room was quite a way from the reception/entrance but was spacious, modern and clean. The bed was comfortable and bathroom was large and looked... More

Not a pleasant experience and hardly Christmassy ! Food was mediocre but my Christmas pudding was over microwaved and like concrete in the middle .When I tapped it with my spoon to show the waiter...

Staff dinner dances can sometimes be disappointing ... but not this time ! We were met at the door and advised where our dining room was by a friendly smiling young woman. There was somewhere to leave our coats, and there was plenty of staff at the bar. The food appeared and was delivered swiftly so we were all able... More

Came here as part of a university society. The venue it was nicely decorated and well kept! There was a bar situated in the room as well which was also good. We had a three course meal and all the food was a very good quality and of great value for money. All in all was a great night!

I am sure that the New Continental was once the pride of Plymouth. Whilst the hotel retains much of its character, it is a little tired. Compared to modern hotels the decor is dated, nor does it have the timeless quality of really excellent traditional independent hotels. Whilst in need of some love (and a lot of money) it is...
