As far as hotels go, there's nothing really amazing to brag about the New Continental... it's perfectly functional, the room was clean with a comfy bed, Tea and coffee, TV, big bathroom and plenty of towels etc. There was a trouser press and I think Ironing facilities. My review is more that the staff (that I encountered) are very friendly and very helpful. I was attending a wedding an had a nightmare with a late delivery of a wasitcoat. I asked the hotel if I could post there and they were very receptive to that, taking in and keeping my package safe.
Check in is 2pm, however they arranged for my room (and some friends) to have our rooms cleaned first and ready early (10.30ish) which was really good of them. The bar was reopened when we got back late. The reception staff where chatty and very helpful.
I didn't explore plymouth much, but the hotel is near to the harbour, and the cabbie told us there were some good eateries around. It's not far from the main stretch of clubs if that's your thing.
This hotel won't blow your mind, but if you're looking for a decent place for a drop in to Plymouth, it's perfect.
