4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Sammy's hotel is clean. The hotel staff are excellent, very friendly & helpfull.
We had a good room with a balcony. It has a very good swimming pool.
We had two evening meals at the hotel, they were OK, but there is room for improvement.
The breakfast was basic - cereal, egg, beans & toast. (I had toast & honey with juice, very nice).
We were unable to get any real fresh milk in the hotel (or anywhere else in Girne), only long life milk which was not very good.

Room Tip: Get a north facing room with a balcony(nice & cool)

just had a fab week at this hotel wish it had been longer.
went half board but i dont recommend that food was good but given choice off two menus to be given before lunch time + then told what time yor meal would be ready !!
that was the only down side for me would definately go back but bed + breakfast.
could not fault the staff all of them so helpful nothing to much trouble ... some rooms need updating but ours was fine ..

After visiting last year and having a wonderful time, we wondered if this year would be as good, if anything it was better. As mentioned in previous reviews the hotel is small and very friendly.
frequented by an older clientele and I would have to say that children older than toddlers might go stir crazy.
However it does provide lovely deep pool, bigger than might be expected for size of the hotel plus swim up bar. Adequate breakfast.10-15 minute walk to the harbour if you take the back roads, on this route you will pass the modern Amphitheatre, down the steep hill to the right of it you will discover the wonderful setting of Peanuts restaurant well worth a visit or two! Also locally the Blue Rose rear of Pia Bella Hotel, No14 by the Mosque in the old Turkish quarter, in town the Stone Arch down the lane adjacent to Georges cafe in the square, the House opposite the Colony Hotel, the Patio opposite the Rocks Hotel low key but again a wonderful waterfront location.
It is nice after a night out to return to the Hotel for the quiet friendly ambiance in the bar area for a couple of drinks chatting to the other guests and the friendly staff before turning in.
At the end of the road try Molly's which is a small cafe bar good for day time snacks etc. This is also where you can get a taxi and the Dolmus minibuses,if you want an excellent beach catch the Dolmus heading to Lapta ask for Deniz Kizi Hotel the bus will drop you at end of their drive walk down pay 10TL each for entry you will not be disappointed!
As per reviews many people return to Sammy's and It was nice to meet up again with old friends from last year.

Room Tip: Although very small ask for room with balcony

We have just returned from 14 nights stay at Sammys and this was our second year staying there. This is a small family run hotel which is ideal for those who don;t want to stay in the larger hotels available, 24 rooms all with good basic facilities. The outdoor pool is a good size for a small hotel. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The buffet breakfast although limited in choice is available in the hotel restaurant which is kept spotlessly clean. The harbour and town centre is only 20 minute walk away. There are many good restaurants within walking distance including Peanuts which is in a superb location, Blue Rose which serves excellent food, No 14 which is another stylish place to eat with a good choice of food, Mama Mias which serves italian fayre, the Stone Arch which was also very good and served excellent kleftiko. We made some very good friends staying here and we were sorry to leave.

Room Tip: If you book early you may be able to book either the suite of rooms or a room with a balcony.

Just come back from spending 10 days at Sammy's. This is our third visit to the hotel over a six year period and for us it’s perfect, from the moment we arrived we were meet by the family owners who remembered us and throughout our stay were always on hand to answer any questions or to say hello.
The hotel suits us as we stay on a B&B basis it’s a ten minute walk to town, fifteen minute walk to the harbour and there is an abundance of great restaurants to eat from No 14 close to the hotel, Kyrenia Tavern just in the town, the restaurants down the harbour and on this visit we made a fifteen minute taxi ride to the Ambiance restaurant...well worth the journey.
Turan and Umit are brilliant waiters such a good sense of humour always smiling and once again nothing is too much trouble.
The pool area is brilliant, loads of beds, the pool is a nice size with a swim up bar for a beer an ice cream or a chat to Huseyin....I’ve never seen someone work so hard all day in the heat always attentive always there for you smiling and polite....like all Sammy' staff.
The room we had was kept clean, the maids came in every day and tided around, air conditioning worked well, and there is even a safe in the wardrobe.
We attended the Friday night BBQ round the pool the food and ambience was excellent topped off by Brian Delaney singing live laid back music that I think everyone enjoyed....as most of them were up dancing.
Overall a brilliant ten days for us and we know it won’t be long before we go back

Sammy's is a family run hotel, and the staff are wonderful. Food is very mundane with eggs and beans every breakfast time. Rooms are small but clean and only a few have balcony's. Harbour is a good 20 minutes away, not good if you are elderly or can't walk far, but taxi's can be ordered from the hotel. A rural setting where barking dogs are abundant all the time, kept us awake at night. Not much to do in the evenings unless you are a drinker.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room otherwise you will be sleeping in a small and very hot room.
