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.

... most beautiful places I have ever been. There were sheep and goats everywhere just chilling on the edges of cliffs! There were some awesome rocks to jump around on and sit on at the edge. But There were so many steps! I'm talking about 300-400 each way! By the end of it my legs were shaking! Then we had to walk all the way back to the car. But we stopped at a nice pub for lunch at like 2:30pm which was nice. We then headed to Boscastle which is a mini ...
... about mid afternoon. But it made for a good drive because it was all hazy and misty which was cool because then we stopped and Ron and I took photos of this cool bridge and creek that was covered in moss. Then we headed home after lunch because of the weather and to have a relaxing afternoon. Ron and Abi went out to the shops and I just stayed and chilled with Margaret and showed her some of my pictures and then had ...
... really cool. Then we headed back off the island to have lunch and I had my first pasty in England. We also came across the place Mike (Abi's dad) was born in during the war. It is actually like a castle, they moved the hospital to there while Plymouth was being bombed and it is such a nice building. So we stopped and checked that out because abi had never been there. I was impressed that he can say he was born in a castle and I have to say I'm born ...
... I know mum wanted me to check out. I didn't realise people still had them, we even saw one being restored. We then headed off to Plymouth which was another 2.5 hour drive. I have been feeling sick the past few days and felt the worst today so I just slept in the car. We arrived at Abi's uncle John and aunty Janes house and had dinner, but we didn't stay long because they had there meeting and I was feeling sick. So we headed down road to Abi's ...
According to my travel companions, I am cursed with bringing the rain everywhere. Plymouth was a lovely day trip and in the summer I imagine would be a very popular destination. However we were not off the train 10 minutes before it started pouring with rain. We made it to a monument park (which had some great war memorials) and decided to wait out the rain in a lighthouse. This was a great idea! The lighthouse was part ...
