Having stayed at the New Continental Hotel for a wedding, I thought I would take some time to review the hotel.
When I booked the hotel it looked really nice online and upon checking prices in the area it was a tiny bit more expensive than others however.... With the Continental you also get breakfast and car parking in the price, which in fact saved a fair few pounds.
As I approached the hotel, my first thoughts were this looks nice but as I got closer I noticed that the outside of the building was in need of painting and I started to think if this is the outside what's the inside going to be like.
After parking up the car and walking into reception, I was very pleasantly surprised. The lobby had been recently redecorated. The check in was fast and painless and I was in my room in no time at all.
The room itself was on the fourth floor and again was very well presented. I was quite surprised how big the room and the bathroom was. In fact I would say I was very impressed.
The wedding itself went very smoothly and you can tell that the venue has this down to a fine art. The food, was good quality and plentiful. The only thing I could complain about is one of the waiters was very slow and after asking if you wanted coffee, gave you a cup and then walked off without filling it. Was quite random indeed.
I've read that other people were complaining about the rooms having thin walls and could hear the people in the next room, thankfully this was something that I didn't experience and the hotel was full.
All in all I thought that this was a great hotel and would consider staying here again.

.....well, scones rather than bread. After school, our "dirty dozen" walked to dinner with Alex and Hailey, natives of Plymouth who traveled to Fredonia last year. They cooked us pizza and authentic English food. The best was scones with cream and jam. It doesn't get more British than this! You cut open the scone and spread a bit of cream ...
... the main goal back in October. I'm just an emotional person who likes to reflect on the intensity of the "little things" so today was a big deal. There is a lot of new vocabulary to learn. For example, a "torch" is a flashlight and "have a go" means "just try your best". I'll try to post one new word a day. Tomorrow I will be observing the full day as the thirty students in my class engage in positive learning. ...
... Plymouth, Massachusetts! There is an Aldi store right up the street from where our house is. I struggled to pack all the groceries in my cloth bag....where is Francis when you need his expertise?! Tomorrow begins the real work: school. We are being given a tour of the school we are working in and perhaps learning what grade level we will be teaching in. It's going to be a long and short month all in the same respect. This city has already begun to feel like ...
... and presents at the table before we tidied up. We headed for Charlestown in the afternoon, a small port famous for its tall ships (it's also featured in the new series of Poldark). We walked down by the harbour then went to 'wreckers' cafe where we all had a cream tea. We then went to the Shipwreck & Heritage Centre and walked through its museum detailing the shipwreck and the history of the port. It included a section on the ...
We were all nursing various degrees of hangover this morning after an unexpectedly heavy drinking session last night. We hung around the cottage all morning before we set off to visit Lanhydrock, one of many National Trust sites down in Cornwall. We spend all afternoon here and really enjoyed the tour around the house and the wandering through the gardens. We stopped for a drink and a bite to eat at ...
