Very good location for touring the island by public transport in respect of which the 5 and 7 day tickets are good value.
We had a good sized seaview executive room but you need to specify this and pay a bit extra. We could see that room sizes varied a lot, typical of older buildings, and noticed that some of those not facing the sea were quite small. Also the live music could be quite intrusive (we were on the first floor more or less directly above it) and generally went on until 11.30p.m. There is also some street noise so my advice is to go for a higher floor if you are sensitive to noise or like to get to sleep early.
Staff were excellent, efficient and friendly. Our room was spacious, clean and comfy.The entrance to the hotel deserves mention as a very pleasant area.
The a la carte restaurant was very pleasant and the food was very good. The alternative buffet restaurant is downstairs and offers an interesting mixture of mainly Indian and Chinese food with a few British dishes as well. It was OK and you could eat as much as you liked but I dare say you could get a better purely Indian or Chinese meal in one of the local dedicated Indian/Chinese restaurants. A decent buffet style breakfast was served downstairs. We like to eat around and particularly liked the nearby Italian Job at the Villa Marina and Harbour Lights in the shopping area.
Specifically request a sea-facing executive room, preferably on one of the higher floors
