A simple request for a bottle of local wine took an age to appear. They had to send downstairs? When we said we would like to order... More

We really had a lovely stay in this luxury hotel. It was extremely clean with the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Most days I found it pretty hard to wake up as the curtains completely blocked out the light - perfect. We had half board - the breakfast buffet was very good although the coffee was awful (would...

We booked a two week holiday via Cyrpus Paradise, flying into Ercan Airport with the transit in Istanbul, I would strongly recommend that you fly into Larnaca Airport and cross the boarder, its not much longer in Transfer and far quicker.

This is the hotel to stay at if you want to be in the centre of Kyrenia and get the feel of the city .Its only problem is the Manic Pinky and the petrol station which are right opposite the enterance to the hotel and rather spoil your view from front facing bedrooms! The hotel itself is lovely,not brash and... More

A classic luxurious hotel in the city with a nice roof-top swimming pool The hotel looks luxurious with a casino but its price is not that high. I think it is probably due to its city location without a beach, but it is convenient if you want to take the bus or taxi to elsewhere in Cyprus or it is... More

Colony is almost at the heart of Girne, the House bistro opposite of the hotel has delicious cuisine. The hotel is only 5 minutes walking distance to the Girne harbor.
