Upon arrival we were greeted by the receptionist who was very happy and helpful. After checking in we went down to the restaurant, food and drink were lovely but the service we received was brilliant. We walked away after saying it’s the best customer service we have received

So it doesn’t matter who books rooms, anyone can cancel rooms. I had rooms booked, and they were cancelled by other people not me. Both rooms in my name, and the reception cancelled them because someone else photo bed up. As far as I was aware no one other than person rooms are

Thank you for leaving your review. We do have policies in place which would prevent this situation arising, however if there is someone calling with all the personal information we require, asking to cancel a booking we will obviously do our best to assist them. I am not aware of your specific situation, but I would love for you to contact me so that I can investigate and ensure our policies are working correctly. Please email me on elinor.eaton@newcontinental.co.uk Many thanks once again.

In the past we've had some bad experiences with hotels, but the new continental was great. All the staff were so helpful and friendly, and room had everything we needed with plenty of space. Downstairs the restaurant was beautiful and food was lovely. We used the heated swimming

Stephanie, thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. We are all thrilled that you enjoyed your time with us, it's always so heartening to welcome people to Plymouth, especially when they are visiting their loved ones. I am also glad you had some time to relax and unwind in Club Continental; it's always great to hear when people remembered to pack their 'swimmers' and make the most of the FREE entry whilst they stay. And we couldn't agree more. the food in Steve's Brasserie is delicious, and the Early Evening menu is perfect for those going to see a show. We can't wait to welcome you back next time, do have a look on our website at the 'offers' page, there are always really great promotions for accommodation and dining. Safe travels and see you again SOON!

Hotel itself was to a good standard. Parking was cheap at £3 for 24hrs for city centre parking in small car park at the hotel. Polite enough staff on arrival but after finding room we decided to go to reception to book a table at the onsite brasserie for 5.30pm as we were seeing

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review LSDEVON; although I am obviously devastated to hear that you did not experience our usual level of customer service that we pride ourselves on, nor our sensational food offer. I have looked into your experience in great detail. Firstly, I want to say that I am so sorry that the communication regarding bookings in Steve's Brasserie on that evening was not passed on to you in the way that we would have hoped. I also am sad that you did not get to experience the great food in Steve's Brasserie on this occasion, or our fabulous made to order breakfast. I would like to offer you my email address, so that you could perhaps contact me should you wish: elinor.eaton@newcontinental.co.uk Please be assured that we have taken note of all of your feedback and although the member of staff you spoke with at the time was new and still learning; we have ensured that this miscommunication will not happen again. I really hope to hear from you, and we would love to welcome you back in the near future, to have the opportunity for you to experience our usual level of customer service, Many thanks once again for your time, and thank you for your honest feedback which has really aided our induction training.
