City break
Reviewed 3 hours ago

We spent 3 nights at the Continental and overall was impressed with the hotel. The room was well decorated and had lovely big comfy bed. The staff were friendly and helpful. Its ideally located for sightseeing and just a short walk down the road to get the hop on hop off bus. There are plenty of bars and restaurants close by too. We didnt book breakfast, so on the first morning we decided to have breakfast in the hotel. This is my only complaint - the dining room is too small when the hotel is full. There was no clear tables and people were still coming in lookin for somewhere to sit. Also tables didnt seem to be cleared quickly enough. We decided to give breakfast a miss and went to one of the nearby cafes, which would be my recommendation. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Second stay
Reviewed 19 hours ago

This was our second stay at the hotel. Can’t comment on food or bar as we didn’t use these facilities. Check in was slow, think it was a trainee but we got there in the end. Asked for card details for mini bar advised we wouldn’t be using it. Rooms cleaned daily and spacious enough for the length of time we were in it. Use a taxi company for airport transfers as it’s a lot cheaper. All in all the hotel is good for what we used it for and is slightly out of the way of the hustle and bustle of the city life. Would go back again :)

Not quite
Reviewed 2 days ago

A great location, a few minutes walk from the centre. The room was spacious, bed a bit hard, otherwise ok.
Breakfast was pretty good, but one morning we were in the overspill room as it was really busy. That was poor, nowhere near as good a selection.
Our biggest gripe was with the concierge. We asked advice on a hop on hop off bus service. They recommend the “giraffe” service, big big mistake!!! The worst of the 3, we were left stranded twice, one bus took 45 minutes, another was so crowded, we couldn’t see each other, never mind the scenery!! DO NOT USE THIS BUS SERVICE!!!!!
city sightseeing tours was clearly the best. We had 3 days to verify this, they are the one you should pick.

I should have made it a 3, they sold us down the river on this.

Why a three?
Reviewed 4 days ago

I ask myself why a three, it should be a five but for a few major issues! The floor in the suite we had has lifted from wet feet, for a hotel of this Calibre you would expect this small job to have been fixed really ! The breakfast is chaos’s and sone simple steps would rectify this you’d expect this hotel to be able to see this! The major issue we had was the rude and sarcastic lady in the bar that made us feel so very unwelcome then her colleague that confronted us when we paid the bill minus the service charge, when asked if he would have paid it he said do you not have the odd bad day ? We replied Yes about 200 per year that’s why we go on holidays and stay in nice hotels and don’t expect this rude and awful service followed up by a confrontation with a clearly angry member of staff? So it should be a five but for this incident alone it could have easily been a one! The rest of the hotel was excellent and the taxi service to and from airport very good, reception staff friendly and overall hotel pleasant. The bar staff should feel ashamed of the way they treated us!
