My partner and I stayed the New Continental Hotel for two nights in August. The hotel is easy to find and is well situated with free, secure on-site parking. The double room was of a decent size and was clean and tidy. As others have noted, the decor of the rooms is very dated, but the bed was comfortable enough... More

Stayed overnight at the New International last week. The hotel exterior does look a little sad but everywhere inside was well cared for. The breakfast was excellent and the staff first class. We had read a review about a grumpy receptionist and asked our very helpful and pleasant receptionist who it was. She said it was her! Certainly not the... More

We had two rooms (106) which was a single room and (102) which was a family room. The family room was huge with one double bed and a single bed in and another room with... More

Hotel situated in the centre. Good wifi. Rooms are clean, hot and very dated, my nan would love it. There are a lot better hotels in plymouth for similar money, must make sure I book one of them next time.

Most weddings at hotel venues I have attended have... More

We ate at the bistro on the night we stayed and the food was exceptional, the staff attentive which... More
