We stayed at the Minos from late June - early July, and found it to be first class. As soon as we walked in, we were offered a refreshing orange juice whilst we awaited checking in, and a smartly dressed suitcase porter helped with our cases - royal treatment from the outset. The manager and staff were all helpful, humorous,... More
