Leave the sleeping bags and tents at home this festival season; relax and unwind at the @ContinentalHote

Published by .


There really is nothing nicer than knowing that you have a beautiful little city break away on the horizon; fuse that with a festival or two and things just got a whole heap better!

We have so many guests stay with us to enjoy the amazing plethora of events that Plymouth hosts; and our festival scene is a winner for many!

Festivals have the power not only to bring people together, to entertain and inform, but also to educate and inspire and provide the very best runway for your wardrobe!.

Plymouth’s backdrop and rich history lends itself to great arts and cultural festivals; challenging perceptions and providing a new point of view via a wide variety of mediums.

First up this year is the History Festival, which starts in the beginning of May.

Our sensational food scene also creates the perfect pull to attract the very best food festivals; with top city chefs sharing their knowledge … and some fabulous giveaways..yum!

The Seafood Festival and Flavour Fest are massively popular; with guests booking year after year to enjoy the food vibe.


Part of the holiday fun, is the holiday fashion…

Our guests choose to leave their tents and sleeping bags in the garage and stay with us while they explore our cities treats; and who could blame them, given the somewhat inclement weather which has taught us that even in spring there’s no guarantee the sun will shine!

But no matter what the weather – events in Britain’s Ocean City are sure to add sunshine to your holiday.

If you’re among the lucky ones that have planned your trip to enjoy Plymouth this year; you will be guaranteed an unforgettable combination of music, people, art and perfect Instagram moments!

But preparing what to pack can be a minefield! Travel-inspired fashion has been on the runways for years, so too has festival fashion. We asked our fashionista travellers what they pack to blend both city travel AND festival, for the perfect Plymouth luggage!

What we found out…

It turns out the flower crowns may have officially died; but the sequinned garments, feathered head pieces and tasselled jackets; bold colours, joyful prints and sarong-like wrap skirts are all going strong!

But how do we fit all our splendour into a single weekend tote..?

Well, that’s the bonus of staying with us during your festival adventures; your essentials are here waiting for you, like the hairdryers, iron and ironing boards – meaning you can pack without worrying about the big and bulky and the left behind creases!

Our central location and onsite parking means if you want to pack that extra bum bag, pearl and shell jewellery, headscarves, tie-dyed t-shirts and Cuban shorts (just in case the sun greets us!) there’s really no reason not to!

PLUS our offers page on the website always has the best deals and promotions (some even offering a deal for just £50 per night for two sharing).

So, if you’re planning on enjoying the wide range of annual festivals this year, helping us celebrate Plymouth’s diversity through food, music, dance, history and more, then leave your dry shampoo at home and stay with us; in the centre of all the action where even in the rain, you can still look hot!
