Everyone loves a family holiday…Coming to Plymouth and staying at the New Continental Hotel makes so much sense @EllieMEaton

Published by .


There is no question about it, if we could all be guaranteed a couple of weeks a year when we could diarise time off together; we would. Ok, so we would also all diarise non-moody teenagers, tantrum free toddlers and partners with patience – but time at least is something most of us can manage!

Easter is the perfect time to get away; it’s a reward for getting through the first part of the year, and the springboard that connects us to summer, which is just around the corner!

Coming to Plymouth and staying at the New Continental Hotel makes so much sense; it is the perfect destination and home away from home for all the family to enjoy!

Make Plymouth Your Own…

Situated in the heart of Britain’s Ocean City and easily accessible; we offer an unbeatable location and the warmest of family welcomes.

Surrounded by iconic architectural, cultural landmarks and Plymouth’s sensational attractions and events; the New Continental Hotel is in the perfect location to explore Britain’s Ocean City.

Our Grade II listed, Victorian hotel is perfect for families, with a friendly yet professional service, offering everything you need for your break away.

For visiting family and friends, we love nothing more than to open our doors to allow everyone to enjoy the riches on offer here in Plymouth; of which there are many!


Inside The Hotel…

Club Continental is our in-house leisure complex; complete with sauna, steam room, two air-conditioned gyms and an indoor heated pool. With FREE use of Club Continental for all our guests and opened 7 days a week, it’s the perfect addition to the hotels facilities on offer.

Delicious freshly prepared to order breakfast is worth waking up for. It’s also FREE for those little ones six and under. Whether it’s getting fresh & fruity at the breakfast bar; a full Classic English breakfast; a warming all butter croissant or perhaps some of our favourites like grilled kippers or smoked haddock.

Everything is prepared just how you like it, so you just have to sit back, relax and wait to be wowed!

Steve’s Brasserie is our in-house restaurant; with a children’s menu perfect for any little hungry tum!

What’s more, we don’t only have an amazing Pizza Oven that produces pizzas everyone falls in love with; but an Early Evening and Ala carte menu for any hungry traveller!


Outside The Hotel…

As ever; Plymouth is putting on quite the show this Easter, so if you’re lucky enough to be spending the holidays here, your whole family is in for a treat!

Plymouth as a city offers so much to see, do and be part of all year through – and Easter is no egg-ception!

There are lots of free activities as well as theatre fun, the National Marine Aquarium and MUCH, MUCH MORE!

The Theatre Royal Plymouth always has an amazing programme of work on its stages; and this Easter there are some truly extraordinary performances. What’s more, it’s just a two minute walk from the Hotel!

Saltram House is an amazing National Trust House & Garden and a winner with our guests every year. It was once a home to the Parker family and is now a home to lots of wild animals. You could easily spend one or two of your days in Plymouth exploring the park, dressing up in the house or finding out all about natures ‘Grand designs’. There is an infamous Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt too. {Easter Egg Hunt | 24 March – 8 April | 10am to 4pm. £2 per hunt. Normal admission prices into the house and garden apply. There is no admission charge for Under 5s and National Trust members.}

Plymouth by Foot & Bike is an amazing FREE activity. Given our cities history; there have been many famous people walking the Plymouth cobbles. Follow in the footsteps of these infamous explorers, pioneers and artists and walk the Southwest coast path from the Royal William Yard to the Barbican.

You will encounter iconic naval buildings, breath-taking views over the natural harbour of Plymouth Sound and the intriguing characteristics of the former towns and villages that make up this original marine city.


Plymouth’s Food Scene…

Food feeds holiday memories; as well as your tummies and soul!

The Plymouth restaurant and food scene is a joyful mix of old and new, and most importantly perhaps, like many things in Plymouth, old informing new!

An ocean city famed for its fresh seafood as well as honouring food diversity. Diversity potentially born from a city that thrives on collaboration, culture, history and the Arts; we have a food scene that is a melting pot of excellence on our door step!

With golden oldies that have stood the test of time; to new independent gems. It’s not just our holiday makers that are in owe of Plymouth’s amazing food diversity; Plymouth is a city that meets over dinner, so there is no shortage of options!

From restaurants at home in the glamour of the Royal William Yard, a Grade-I listed former Navy building situated on the entrance of the River Tamar; to city centre wonders that will take your breath away and barbican beauties waiting to dazzle; Plymouth promises an explorer’s ransom of options – the hardest thing is perhaps making the choice!

Getting Here By Road…

Plymouth is a city that is easily accessible; the road trip here can be good fun too, thanks to some tips on how to survive ‘The Family Road Trip’ – shared by staff here at the New Continental Hotel! They have added some great printable resources too!!


With so much to see and do; check our  availability or contact us for more details. We would love to be part of your Plymouth holiday and live on in your memories for years to come, as a city that does family holidays for everyone to treasure.
