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. Rooms are clean, pillows are soft enough, beds are comfortable, and breakfast is standard nothing fancy. If you don’t have much time to go to beach, the pool is fair... More

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel and again it was absolutely superb. The staff are really welcoming and speak good English. We were allocated a junior suite which was stunning. We also received fruit and cake in our room for our anniversary- a lovely gesture. We had cocktails on the roof near the pool and the service was... More

Great hotel with very helpful staff, wonderful roof top pool, delicious food & fantastic cocktails. Really good massages in the spa. Been here six or seven times now & always made to feel welcome as a returning guest. Can't miss visiting here whilst in Kyrenia, Mrs Newlin

This was about our ninth visit here and we were not disappointed.The standard is excellent and deserves all five stars.We were even given four complimentary evening meals, the quality of which was top class. The hotel is well positioned for Kyrenia centre and the Harbour, within walking distance of all amenities. The pool area on the top floor is delightful... More

Just back from our second trip to the Colony - this one was for three weeks. The hotel is ideally situated with a short stroll putting you into the centre of Kyrenia. We had a room overlooking the main road and loved it, especially the large balcony. It can be noisy but this just adds to the atmosphere in my... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. The hotel offers all necessary facilities though I won't rate it 5 star. The view from the room was a petrol station which wasn't attractive. The room itself was nice and cost, not too big while Staff was helpful. The breakfast offered good variety of food. The pool is the highlight... More

Just returned from the colony - very nice hotel - staff friendly especially Yuri who was very thoughtful and proactive- the hotel didn't seem busy always a seat/table at breakfast and plenty of sunbeds at the roof top pool. If you want to swim in the sea sit on a beach then there is a free shuttle bus to Camelot... More

From the attentive staff to the plush rooms and the excellent roof top pool not to mention the delicious food the hotel is second to none.... More

Beautiful hotel. The cleanest rooms that we have experienced in Kyrenia. Pool area is stunning. The staff were all very friendly. The evening buffet was a let down and maybe the al a carte restaurants would have been a better choice. We would love to stay there again sometime
