We stayed for ten days in the Excelsior, and while we would agree with some of the complaints about the rooms being slightly dated, it wasn't as bad as some would suggest. Some scuffs and marks but nothing too drastic. Our major issue was with the food service. Generally the quality was very variable, ranging from an excellent if small... More

We can only repeat the majority of the findings of previous commenters on this excellent hotel. Five stars in every respect. I can only think of one issue in that the bar meals lacked a little in variety. Worthy of special comment: Staff – smiling, courteous and plentiful (Don't know the total number of staff but we were told there... More

We were greeted in a most friendly fashion by Jordain, a concierge, who showed us exactly how to book in - we were tired and travel weary. Reception staff beamed when they told us we had been upgraded. We felt privileged, only to discover our essential twin room had disappeared and we had a large double bed. Husband has nightmares...

Location superb. Deluxe room with full harbour view and balcony inc full daily breakfast buffet - good value for money. Staff were excellent - friendly, polite and helpful. Room was very comfortable with plenty of space and large well appointed bathroom. Pool area was an excellent place to chill out - great facilities, service and a nice (small) man made... More

This was my second stay for business in two years and I'm not sure I'll be back. While the hotel has spacious common areas that are vaguely reminiscent of a cruise ship (specifically, scenes from the movie Titanic), the rooms are generally dated with poor ventilation. My deluxe room had two twin beds with sheets that looked like they were... More

I was only here for two days on business but used the outdoor pool - very nice and restaurant with buffet one evening - excellent selection and very good - and breakfast - standard big hotel breakfast that is good - coffee though - awful! I had a room facing the harbour so can't complain about the fantastic view. The... More

It is always a big decision to return to a hotel a second time when the first visit was so good. Well no worries here, the second visit was every bit as good if not even better. Stayed for 1 week 10th to 17th May and we found the hotel location, ambience and service to be worthy of its 5... More

The Excelsior has a plain facade that hides an interior of rare quality. The views over the harbour are stunning and well worth the premium for rooms affording sea view. Evening meals feature a range of international buffets with the Indian evening particularly good but be assured all are very good. A useful wine list complements the food. Outdoor and... More

What a shame, an absolute shame. This hotel has 5 stars but does not seem to be able to differentiate twixt its role as a holiday venue or a business hotel. One can understand the need to attract business groups but I am afraid that during our stay the Harbour View Bar was completely overwhelmed one night (9pm) by a... More

Stayed there for 3 days Service is first class with efficient check in/out. Breakfast included all you may expect and more. Location at the water front, with a large swimming polo is an additional plus. The bar service in the lobby was however, very slow and rather inefficient. The transport desk arranged a nice private sight seeing + airport service... More
