We stayed in Columbus Hotel from 7th of September for 9 days. The best rooms are with a sea view. We were very pleased with our holidays. Fantastic!!!! Very clean hotel, friendly and helpful staff, no complains what so ever. Maybe they could change breakfast meniu from time to time, but that's not an issue for me. Would definitely recommend...

This hotel needs updating. It's a shame as it could be a lovely hotel as it's in a perfect location. The hall ways are smelly, the rooms could be cleaner. The breakfast not very appetising , I wouldn't stay here again.

I'm a loyal Trip Advisor user - can't understand how I missed the reviews of this lamentable hotel. Awful rooms - small, dark, furnished in the seventies, nothing like the promo photos - depressing public facilities. Our sea view balcony? Directly opposite beach bar and stage. No maid service for 3 days but, when I called to say we'd left... More

It appears they stopped the clock thirty years ago for this hotel. Old building, smelly hallways, bad restaurant (By that I mean it had a very limited variety for breakfast and you had to get there early because by 10:30 it was all gone). I had never seen a room so old and dirty, not even as a student traveller.... More

First and foremost the hotel staff - a warm welcome EVERY time you walked through the door and help and service ALWAYS with a smile. The hotel was yards from the beach and had a big selection of restaurants and quiet bars, either side on the promenade , directly in front of it. The pool was always clean and never... More

We chose this hotel due to its close proximity to the beach. When we arrived we were given a warm welcome by the receptionist, she was very helpful. We arrived at 11am and we were told we could not check in until 2pm. We were shown to the luggage room. The receptionist then caught up with us to tell us... More

Fantastic beach front location. However, our room was dark and depressing, with a view of an overgrown building plot. No balcony/terrace, despite prior confirmation that we would have a balcony or terrace. Reception staff were quite dismissive and refused to change our room. After 3 nights I'd had enough and complained again. This time successfully and and were given a... More
