A Conference With Confidence & Care…

A Platform For Change…

One million plastic bottles around the world are consumed every single minute. Isn’t that incredible to think?

Here at the New Continental Hotel, we have always tried hard to be as sustainable as possible and, as much as the business has allowed, to always act ethically and responsibly.  So, knowing that over eight million tonnes of plastic waste ends up in our oceans every year, we knew that we had to work hard to help make change happen.

Although small steps, we know that any steps we make now will add up to making a difference; and if we want to play a part in a shift and see a future where our planet is less battered by our waste, we simply have to act – and act now.

By 2050, it is said that there will be more plastic (by weight) than fish in the ocean; something that all of us here at the New Continental Hotel don’t want to be a part of. So, with this in mind,  we have made a commitment to do all that we can throughout the entire hotel and our events and conferencing department is cheering this change.

We know that we can’t get rid of plastic altogether; it’s useful, durable and affordable and so as a result of this, we use it every day in some form. But how we use single use plastics can – and is changing.

Although we have completed a full audit and the hotel introduced an Environmental Policy in 2016; our bars, events and conference offering has also had its own overhaul more recently.

Our Food & Beverage Manager removed plastic straws and bottles in 2018. Where possible our events team  work with our organisers to share our tried and tested environmentally kind tips; and they are going down a treat!

Thank you to everyone who has helped and assisted us along the way. 

How You Can Help US:

These tips have been really popular and so, we thought that we would share them! If you’re thinking of, or holding an event with us, you can see how together we can all try and take small steps to make a united difference. 

Go-Paperless! Use apps, QR codes and websites to save paper. Also, make sure to put your agenda and any event information online! For organisations that don’t have their own website, we happily host a page FOR FREE on our website leading up to the event. A central place for those without a website to host all of their event information.

Email Know How! Pre-conference emails offering information such as links to information and also our Wi-Fi password in advance really helps. It means that delegates can be encouraged, empowered and enabled to go paperless!

It’s Not Just What We Say! We also offer our sustainability statement to go on any of event or conference information.

No more plastic! We no longer stock plastic water bottles for our events. Instead we place glasses and water pitchers in the meeting space. We also happily provide biscuits not individually wrapped if requested.

Go Local! Where and when at all possible our event food and beverages are locally sourced to decrease our carbon footprint.

On The Go! We no longer offer take away Coffee from events as we do not stock paper cups.

Be Collective! We suggest that even though we have ample parking, organisers suggest that delegates set up carpools and offer public transport details for their events with us. As we are in the city centre we are really easy to get to!

Our Marketing At Events:

Bin It! We do not use throwaway marketing materials within conferences that we host; nor do we give handouts to delegates.  We will always put any information either on a memory stick or send before or during the event via email.

No Swag! We don’t promote our businesses products or services with any ‘swag’ style items at events we host. We don’t give away pens or branded free gifts that don’t have a ‘sustainable’ theme.

Below is a little about what we do as a general rule at the New Continental Hotel, and also what we aim to develop in the future:

What We DO:

We are undertaking the following actions to strive to responsibly lessen our impact on the environment wherever we sensibly can, by: 

  • Factoring the environment in our everyday decision making at management meetings.
  • We are Raising awareness and encouraging our staff to carry out more sustainable business practices by informing and involving them at induction and during regular meetings throughout the year.
  • Recycling paper, newspapers, glass, batteries, fluorescent and long life bulbs, cans and cartridges.
  • Operating a ‘switch off’ policy for office staff to turn off computer equipment and printers, lights and heating when not in use.
  • Operating a ‘switch off’ policy for function spaces no longer in use.
  • Reducing our usage of harmful cleaning chemicals and replacing these with eco-friendly products wherever possible.
  • Reducing our usage of paper by printing double sided and re-using paper wherever possible.
  • Encouraging our guests to explore the local attractions by public transport or on foot by providing information on walks, cycle routes and cycle hire information and bus timetables at Reception.

 

We will continue to:

  • Use low energy light bulbs in public areas.
  • Have motion light sensors fitted where appropriate and safe to do so.
  • Monitor our energy consumption of gas, electricity and water.
  • Use email where possible to reduce the use of paper.
  • Turn off unnecessary lights and taps.
  • Buy in bulk.

We are working on projects to:

  • Update our website with green travel information e.g. local bicycle hire.
  • Continue to reduce our energy consumption by looking at energy saving devices, insulation and working on long term projects such as implementing LED lighting.
  • Use more organic produce, seasonal vegetables and local produce.
  • Use recycled paper for our brochures with a reduced print run.
  • Get involved in local community projects.
  • Reduce water use by continuing to fit water saving devices in toilets and rooms throughout the hotel.
  • Donate half used bathroom products and towels and bedding to local homeless charities.
  • We will always comply with the law in all our actions and will continuously review our policy to improve our environmental impact.

We are dedicated to balancing our commitment to our Environmental Policy without compromising on the comfort, standards and enjoyment of our guests

 

Happy International Women’s Day from this Grand Old Lady! 

More than just a city centre hotel; a business; a workplace or a historic building. This Grand Old Lady represents courage, strength and willpower…

The New Continental Hotel. A Grand Old Lady who’s seen and survived horror and history. A location that many of us have used for celebrations and special life events.  A history that many of us have been part of, be it dinner & dances in the Ballroom or drinking in The Grapevine!

Not just a bricks and mortar city centre structure; but a Grand Old Lady who’s been part of many of our lives and who has witnessed centuries of change and challenge, yet has gracefully and seamlessly adapted and endured…

She is as much a part of Plymouth as the Plymouth people. As familiar to us as the face of a friend. Yes, she has seen struggles, but here she still stands. Waiting to see Plymouth’s transformations, waiting to be part of Plymouth’s future, knowing that she still has the spirit to be exactly what she needs to be, in a city she is proud to call home.

Isn’t that what incredible women need to do?

The strongest of actions for anyone is to love themselves; be themselves and shine amongst change. Building his or her own world, wearing their past pain with pride.

She has been through The Blitz, being in the hands of the receivers, being battered by storms and by the social climate! But continually in pursuit of opportunity; trusting in her value and knowing that she can be and do anything she wants; because she is proud of where she’s come from.

Happy International Women’s Day from this proud,  Grand Old Lady!

National Apprenticeship Week…

Before we start:

As we are now in the middle of the annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships, we wanted to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to the team at City College Plymouth, their amazing students and to our apprentices, those with us now and those who have flown the nest to amazing new careers in hospitality.

Today we take a sneaky peak at the life of an apprentice chef…

It’s always hard saying goodbye to an apprentice. But when you know you have played a part in connected them to their future and to a career that they are passionate about; it really helps with the farewells!

Growing up, our natural aptitudes and interests often lead us to pursue certain careers. Sometimes we follow our parent’s footsteps, join the family business or simply look for the best paid jobs!

Sometimes we look to the future, to see where there might be growth in a specific sector. Perhaps we look at predicted skill shortages, or staff predominately made up of a generation starting to retire, with no one snapping at their heels to replace them!

However, sometimes, you are lucky enough to know what you love to do, what you’re great at and then consider the merits of a career based on your value; turning your passions into a profession!

Now isn’t that something!

As Plymouth bounds forward with growth and regeneration, as the city centre continues to develop and as Plymouth is growing in popularity as a destination, there has never been a better time to be in the tourism and hospitality sector.

Today we specifically look at ‘Chefs Life’ and see how, over the past seven years, we have been working closely with some amazing young talent.

The kitchen is intense, fast paced and dynamic. There can be long, stressful hours. It takes bags of energy, passion and charisma and it’s anything but easy! It’s full of pressure and high expectations of you…

…we aren’t really selling it here are we!

OK! Let’s help with that!

Staff Have Their Say…

We ask our Executive Chef, Paul Doidge why he feels that hospitality, specifically the kitchens, makes such a good springboard to connect young people to a career that will grip them and keep them inspired:

“ For the past seven years, I have seen many apprentices join us and leave connected to their dream of being a chef. All a step closer to their goal. Being in the thick of the action and really empowering and enabling apprentices is a massive part of all of our responsibilities; ensuring that the future of our craft has innovative new chefs emerging, learning and growing in confidence.

Becoming a chef is a career with surprisingly broad appeal. You can travel the world with it, teach with it, care with it; you can work across all sectors and you have a skill that many are envious of.

Almost everyone cooks at some point in their life; unlike plumbing or carpentry for instance; on a fairly regular basis the majority of people will prepare and serve food. When you’re good at it, you and everyone you cook for instantly knows. It’s a natural aptitude that is unlocked. Perhaps in your own kitchen, a friends or at school; access to the tools are readily available and accessible. Let’s face it, very few people will ever say ‘I’d rather you didn’t cook for me’!   

We have an apprentice currently that knew he was an amazing ‘chef’ from a really young age, after cooking at school and home and gaining rave reviews. For me, to nurture and extend that passion and energy with additional skills,  sharing my knowledge and experience,  is one of the many pleasures of my job.

Plenty of jobs require skills that you’ll never use outside of the office. Being a chef is an amazing professional talent that can also be used and shared in our daily lives.”

If you are still wondering if a #chefslife is the life for you; then perhaps this may help: 5 Reasons Why A Chefs Life Is A GREAT Life! 

5 Reasons You Might Become A Chef…

For seven years Paul Doidge, our Executive Chef, has been passionately banging the drum for his profession and working closely with our chef apprentices. He shares  with us  5 reasons why people often consider a career as a Chef. 

At FIVE:

The perception for many is that cheffing is a ‘low skilled’ professional. You can rest assure that anyone making this assumption has never been a professional chef! It’s not only about a natural talent and creativity; depending on where you want to take your future, cheffing is a profession that is highly scientific, mathematical and requires exacting precision. High-level cooking is as much a science as an art.

 

At FOUR:

The freedom, possibility and direction is endless! There are jobs for chefs all over the world,  on cruise ships, in large restaurants and little bistros… You don’t have to take a year out to have a globe-trotting lifestyle, you can do what you love, make people happy with your food and make money all at the same time! If you really want the freedom to travel, working as a chef might be the way you can make that happen.

At THREE:

Artists work to please the eyes; chefs do the same thing, but for every sense and the soul!  The work of an inventive and dedicated chef is every bit as much an act of passion and creation as that that goes into a painting or sculpting.

At TWO:

Giving people experiences they will fondly remember and moments they will never forget is a huge attraction for the caring chef. People with giving, passionate personalities tend to thrive as chefs for exactly that reason. As a chef, you can use the power of food to get people to enjoy healthy eating, or explore different cultures, or even just smile. There is nothing better than to hear people compliment your food and say what a lovely time they had.

At ONE:

The love of food! Possibly the very best reason to become a chef is because you just love food. It doesn’t have to be any more complicated than that!

The History Of Holidaying..!

It’s really no big surprise to us that the UK receives more than 30 million tourists a year!

Which ranks us in the top 10 most visited countries in the whole world! 

When you work in Tourism, you see first-hand how truly blessed we are here in Plymouth; with our hugely diverse landscape, sandy beaches just a short drive away, hidden coves, moorland and more!

With all this on the New Continental Hotels doorstep; we love hearing our guests’ talk of their explorations and their ‘Devon Discoveries’!

With 2020 now in sight, and the big celebration of the Mayflower voyage 400 years ago; we take a look back at holidays gone by. We make our own predictions when we ask:

“What might the future look like for travel?”

Jetting off to foreign lands will always hold a certain sense of adventure. Like for those that we will commemorate on the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower, who sailed from Plymouth to America; carrying the pilgrims who founded the modern United States.

They were off to foreign lands for an ‘adventure’ – but how we choose to ‘holiday’ has changed so much throughout time.

Travel…

The travel industry is a sector that will always undergo dramatic transformations; be that due to digital revolutions, fashionable trends, politics or the social and economic climate.

What has never changed though, is why we holiday; it’s to make wonderful memories.

That’s what we love to be part of, and that is why no matter what transformations take place; our passion for holidaying here at the New Continental Hotel and in Plymouth will never fade.

Holidays Gone By…

It was in 1841,  Thomas Cook started the holiday industry rolling with their ground-breaking offer of a shilling-a-head rail excursion from Leicester to Loughborough! Then followed swiftly in the 1870s, with the Lancashire cotton workers, who really helped develop UK holidaying. They saved all year to convert the traditional (unpaid) one-week holiday into seaside breaks. A chance for the whole family to come together and enjoy each other’s company; without the stresses of everyday life!

Then, 80 years ago in 1939, we saw holiday leave became a legal right for employees!  And by 1975 most people had at least two weeks’ paid holiday a year!

For the rich jet setters 1976 saw the supersonic aircraft Concorde enter commercial services; people could now cross the Atlantic in a record 2 hours 52 minutes!!

Fast forward to 1979; a year when for the first time in history we spent more on overseas holidays than on holidays at home!

Why was this?

Well, for £50 you could spend a week in the glamorous Majorca – with the sun on your back and hotel bedrooms that had balconies and ensuite bathrooms!

And, when we talk about an industry that can be transformed overnight by factors such as social media and digital revolutions; could it also be perhaps transformed by TV?!?

In 1975, a new comedy aired on BBC2; Faulty Towers! A hilarious comedy that neatly exaggerated bad hospitality in the UK..! Could that have helped galvanise holiday’s abroad Vs staycations?!

Perhaps – but the way we book holidays today would certainly look like science fiction to the holidaymaker of the 70’s;  actually, probably to those in the early 90s too!

Package holidays were sold mainly from high street agencies, the only reviews in the 90’s were from friends at dinner tables. Travellers had little real clue what to expect before they arrived. Internet access was limited and the Smartphone still in development, holidaying in the 90’s was a very different kettle of fish!

Now, in 2019, we can see another big shift!  The Staycation!

Our favourite for obvious reasons! Travellers searching for better value breaks, with a growing demand for interesting destinations closer to home. Destinations like Plymouth, that have a plethora of history, heritage and beautiful vistas!

Interestingly, here at the New Continental Hotel, we have also noticed a connection that we like to call:  the ‘nostalgic staycation’!

If we look back to the early 80’s, when the UK entered a recession – with falling output, rising unemployment and a fall in the inflation rate; if holidays were taken, they were taken in the UK and just a short drive away from home – due to fuel prices.

We have had many conversations with adults holidaying with us, those in their 40’s, who are bringing their family back to Plymouth to relive their childhood memories.

The time was tough for families – but the holiday memories were so magical they want their children to experience them.

2018 proved to be a really successful year for the staycation market; we have also noticed that this year  looks like more and more families, friends and couples are also choosing to holiday in Plymouth. And that makes us immensely proud.

We ask our guests what the ingredients are for a perfect holiday at home. Top is obviously a great location; but also an extra eye for the details that matter, whether it’s parking, or high speed Wi-Fi, or a warm family welcome. It’s these thoughtful touches that make our family owned hotel a winner for many holidayers; those from both home and away!

Throughout the years; tourism has been the lifeblood of many communities up and down the UK and many travellers are realising the fun to be had by discovering what’s on offer just beyond their doorstep.

Looking forward…

What can we expect in the year 2039 – 20 years from now? Perhaps we will be sitting on-board a pilotless plane; with a chip in our wrist that tells the robot with the trolley our dietary requirements, and the exact temperature we like our Gin? Maybe we will all have a programme that aids us when speaking languages. Or no luggage as hotels will know what we want and our disposal holiday wares will be waiting for us. Or electronic implants that pay as we check-in..?

Who knows what our holidaying will look like 20 years from now; but one thing I am sure we can all be certain of; holidaying will always be that moment in time that we make magical memories … together. Like those on the Mayflower setting off on their adventures. Regardless of where we go, or why we go, or how we get there, or what we experience along the way; holidaying will always be about togetherness.

Whatever the future has in store; the wonderful world of holidays will always be exciting, because we will be with the people we love.

So, here’s to the next two decades of Devon adventures; of Plymouth exploring; and a hotel that hopes to help you create wonderful memories in Britain’s Ocean City.

 

How We Are Getting Ready For 2020…

Eating Up The Past! Our Kitchen Prepares For 2020 Celebrations…

We talk to Executive Chef Paul Doidge…

As 2020 approaches, the celebration of the Mayflower voyage 400 years ago is on the horizon, and we are really excited to be part of such a sensational moment in time.

This week, we take a look at what our amazing Kitchen Staff  are working hard on.  We will have many new additions for 2020. Today we look at the Kitchen Brigade and ask them what they are creating that will be an additional extra threading through Hotel Life in 2020. 

Our creations in celebration and memory of the extraordinary adventure…

So, with the theme ‘The Age of Exploration’ our amazing brigade are thinking about the many sailors and explorers on transoceanic voyages throughout the years. Brave individuals who made significant sacrifices to better our today’s. What are they thinking you ask? They are thinking ‘pickling’!

Yes! Pickling!

As one of the earliest mobile foods, pickles filled the stomachs of hungry sailors and travellers, but not only was it a great food source to store for long travels, it’s reported that Saurkraut also played an important role in helping prevent scurvy!

We ask our Executive Chef, Paul Doidge why ‘pickled food’ was such a good tonic:

“Fermented sauerkraut is basically cabbage which is finely shredded, layered with salt, and left to ferment. It may not look very appetising; but it is said to have played an important role in helping prevent scurvy aboard ships. Scurvy was a real and very prevalent disease,  resulting from a lack of vitamin C (ascorbic acid). It’s said to have been responsible for an estimated two million deaths between 1500 and 1800 — on sailing ships around the world.”

Scurvy plagued sailors aboard long-distance sailing ships for centuries.  All-too common, and life -threatening, many explorers made sure they had pickled food in their diets, as well as Rum of course! Even on the storied expedition to the New World, Christopher Columbus reportedly made sure he had plenty of pickles aboard for his sailors!

With Paul on hand, we ask him why food plays such an important role in understanding our history:

“Food, in my opinion, is one of the most underrated means for understanding, teaching and celebrating our rich history. Especially here in Plymouth where the food scene has always been so highly placed in our community.  Cooking is one of those life skills we all need, throughout every decade. Throughout time, food and the craft of cooking has been a survival skill. Employed by every generation of human beings, extending way back to the beginning of time. Food is one of the few means by which we come to know our ancient ancestors. To me it makes complete sense for the talented chefs in Plymouth to help and play a  role in telling the tales from the Mayflower Voyage.”

“Food plays an essential role, not only in our lives today but also in understanding cultures and those days gone by. It’s a great tool to explore trends and culture. We recognise this in main when we holiday or travel; when you go to Spain you will try their local dishes like paella and tapas; you understand so much about how they live their lives. The same goes when you look to the past, to understand how they lived and in cases such as with the Pilgrim Fathers how they survived trying times.”

In keeping with all of this, our kitchen staff  are on their own adventures. They are doing things a little differently for some 2020 Continental Mayflower Pickles!

Watch this space! There is a lot more to come! 

Benefits For Guests…

Money OFF!

There are two things we like at the New Continental Hotel. One is History & Herritage and Two is Money Off! Combine them and what do you have:

The History of PIZZA & £5 OFF!

Did You Know..?

Pizza is one of the world’s most popular dishes. It is enjoyed by people of all ages and on all occasions. Talking to a member of staff at the New Continental Hotel, they even told us that at a friends wedding, for the wedding breakfast, they had Pizza!

So, it goes as no surprise that with this popular dish, comes much speculation as to what makes THE best pizza and the most popular topping!

Our Pizza’s

In 2017 we had a pizza oven fitted in Steve’s Brasserie’s kitchen. A very welcomed new addition by all our guests, staff and dinners. We then created, after popular demand, a separate Pizza Menu. This can now be ordered as part of our  Room Service offer, as a Bar Meal or in Steve’s Brasserie of an evening.

The £5.00 Off is when you dine at Steve’s Brasserie and is for every guests staying here at the hotel or at our sister company Strathmore House Apartments. There is no limit to the amount of pizzas you order and the £5.00 applied to EVERY pizza on the menu!

The History Of The Pizza…

In 1889, King Umberto I and Queen Margherita first visited a newly unified Italy and came through Naples. Legend has it that they grew bored of a constant diet of French  cuisine and the queen asked to try some varieties of pizza.

A baker named Raffaele Esposito of Da Pietro Pizzeria (now known as Pizzeria Brandi) invented a pizza with red tomato sauce, white mozzarella, and green basil, to reflect the colours of Italy’s flag.  Queen Margherita approved of this pizza and it soon became known as pizza Margherita!

Though given the royal blessing, pizza did not become well known outside of Naples until the late 1800s, when Italians began migrating  and carrying their tastes and recipes with them.

By the 1930s, the pizza business boomed. Italians opened up pizzerias across the globe; and in 1943, Ike Sewell opened Uno’s in Chicago, bringing forth Chicago-style pizza.
Pizza
In 1945, Ira Nevin, a returning soldier to America invented the Baker’s Pride gas-fired pizza oven. This allowed retailers to inexpensively and easily bake pizzas without the fuss of charcoal or wood. Restaurants around the world started selling more and more pizza to their customers – and they became more and more popular.

The real success of pizzas occurred when pizza made it to the high street! The advent of ‘The Pizza Chain’!
  • Pizza Hut opened in 1958
  • Little Caesar’s opened in 1959
  • Domino’s opened in 1960
  • Papa John’s opened in 1989.
Then, the BIG pizza push was in 1957 when they made it to our freezers!  Celentano’s began marketing frozen pizzas and pizzas soon became the most popular of all frozen meals!
Q) How many of us have a pizza in our freezer now?? 
So with this amazing history, we thought it was only right that we gave our guests staying with us at the New Continental Hotel and Strathmore House Apartments not only some fun facts; but also some money off!

On The Horizon | Prom Season

Prom Night 2019

Schools Almost Out!

Prom Season isn’t just about the gowns and the tuxedos – here at the New Continental Hotel we understand that a Prom for many is the springboard that connects them to their  unique and super important next chapter.

A right of passage that teaches young adults more than how to dirty dance on the dance floor and do up a bow-tie! Learning how to behave in a formal setting, using good manners, acting like ladies and gentlemen, are just a few of the lessons they learn without even knowing it.

There are the lovely clothes, the nice dinners, sensational tunes and understanding what reward looks like; reward for all the hard work they have put into their school years.

 

A Prom is a milestone in many young people’s lives. It’s a point between childhood and adulthood, to celebrate in a unique way. Often a once in a lifetime opportunity, and for many a farewell to friends made throughout our school years.

What’s more, a bit like a non-uniform day, it’s a great expression of personalities. We love seeing students come in their amazing dresses and suits; being bold, brave and curious and truly expressing their personalities through their fashion after being confined to years of uniforms.

With hair on point and outfits planned, what’s left to organise? The right venue of course!

Buffet Options

Sit-Down Dinner Options

The New Continental Hotel believes that we have not only got the perfect city centre venue; but packages that really work.

From just £19 per student you can have the very best Prom, one that everyone will remember with fond memories and amazing photos!

To check availability or find out more call our events team today; we would love to hear from you and hopefully be part of the goodbye to the old and hello to the new.

We would love to  hear from you! Just email: events@newcontinental.co,uk  or call: 01752 276783

How Do You Know If Love Is Real? 

There is something so incredibly magical about weddings. They demonstrate love, and let’s face it, there is nothing nicer to see than a couple in love!

Weddings at the New Continental Hotel have always been such memorable occasions. When you talk to staff about what they enjoy most about witnessing the celebrations, it’s not just about how the hotel is transformed, but more about the feeling in the air.

We asked our Wedding Coordinators what it is that couples tell them about how they knew they had found the one.

The ‘love indicators’ shared with them over the years melted our hearts; so of course we had to share them!

 

Weddings Using The New Continental Hotel Bridal Suites

Love Indicators…

“I knew that he was the one for me because although we don’t always share the same opinion about things or have the same viewpoints; we accept each other’s thoughts even when we don’t feel the same way”

“We don’t have conflict. Yes sometimes we bicker but we are always on the same side. We are a team; I never feel alone knowing I have her on my side.”

“It’s so easy being with him. From the very beginning I just felt at home in his arms. I love that I can be myself without judgement.”

“He pays attention to me, but not in a false way, in a real way.”

“She is my antidote. If I have had a bad day and I’m stressed when I get home she knows just how to calm me down.  She always makes me feel at ease, she makes me genuinely happy.”

“This will sound sad, but even if we are apart for a day, we actually miss each other.”
