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.

... the fun begins as we're going around roundabouts to get off into a service facility as we were rather hungary. Just twice around & we were off. Thank goodness Greg was driving. Once onto the A roads it w as smooth sailing until we went off & onto the country lanes. This was per PAM OWENS GPS. Despite taking us the quickest way ( through narrow, narrow country lanes) it delivered us fight to the footstep. Just keyed in postcode & there you have it. Thanks again PAM as it ...
Awoke to a glorious day with bright blue sky. Lazy morning and instead of fishing villages we headed to the town of Minions (and no we didn't see any little yellow people sprouting home truths!) and the Bodmin Moor - I have always wanted to walk on the moors after reading about it in books over the years! We saw horses, sheep and cattle wandering the moors. This part of Cornwall is famous for its tin and copper mining in the 1800s. It has now ...
Ok. Me and my mucker have just found out we can go for a whole month to Spain in October - plan to see all the cities and major towns whilst throwing in some 'costas beachy days' (weather permitting). Not sure which one of us is Thelma/Louise but think I should be Thelma cos I'm the oldest!!!! (by a day!!!). Anyway we now have to sit down and look at travel - don't want to fly so train, bus or ferry. Did you know you can get the ...

After a lovely cruise it was off to our lunch stop of Looe in delightful Cornwell. Our beautiful drive there through ...

A self guided tour was taken ...
