The New Continental Hotel has been meticulously restored, loved and refurbished continually by the Hajiyianni Family since 1984; offering old world charm, a warm family welcome and staff that are passionate about guests’ experiences during their time in Plymouth.
It’s not just how our Grand Old Lady stands today that we love so much, but how she has played such a vital role in the ever changing city around her large footprint.
Working within the hospitality sector, we get to share what we know and what we love about our hotel and a city we care so much about; which means our passion grows and our knowledge has to keep up! It’s interesting what you have to find out in order to answer guests intrigue and questions, and as a hotel it really is our responsibility to know our hotel and city well; not only what’s happening today but also, what happened in our yesteryears!
