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.

... welcome to stop reading them - I won't mind, honestly.
So, to business. For those who do not know, I am about to embark on a 6 week adventure around New Zealand with Rachael Durham; one of my best friends and a flatmate from university. We fly from Heathrow next Monday, 26th January 2015, and should arrive in Auckland on Wednesday 28th, with a brief, but I'm sure very relieving, stop in Hong Kong in the middle. From there the plan ...
... to stay initially and I have also made an alternate plan if I can't go from Portsmouth but have to do the Newhaven Dieppe run. I also didn't realise that one of the bits of paper I need to book caravan sites in Europe runs from January to January so I am having to wait until the 2015 version is available. Hopefully I may be able to buy it around now but then it will have to be posted to me and I will have to hang around until I get it. I ...

Then across to Dartmoor and Princetown, site of H.M. Prison for really bad criminals! Met up with old friends Jo and Andrew for lunch at The Plume of Feathers pub, where I had been many times in the past when I lived nearby. ...
... we could join the End To End Club, if we apply and provide documentation to show we had completed the trip. Again, spectacular cliffs, but very commercialised. Even met two lots of Aussies there. Could not believe our luck with beautiful sunny weather to see these fabulous sights.

Lazy day, with late brekkie. Drove with Liz and John via Torpoint and then Millbrook to Maker Heights, when we sat outside to eat lunch overlooking Cawsand - amazing in late November!
Then walked across Mt Edgecombe parkland along an inlet from the sea to Cremyll, when we had a drink in the old pub, the Edgecombe Arms, before walking back; in all, about 3 miles.
Lovely lazy dinner in front of a roaring fire. So good to see our old pals ...
