We have recently returned from an ALFA tour to this lovely hotel.the food was good, beds comfy, and overall cleanliness was excellent, especially the thick fluffy SNOW WHITE towels. The trips to various parts of the island took us to some beautiful locations. The theatre just off the main street is a great place to visit, but be warned, you... More

This is just a nice hotel which is obviously aimed at the older generation and there is nothing wrong with that. Externally, it is a 1920's retro style building but inside it is a clean, tidy more modern 80's style building. Staff are friendly and do their best but they obviously don't have enough waiting staff. Food is distinctly average... More

Good rooms and parking plus entertainment. However the dining experience was a total shambles. Tables were not fully laid up, breakfast dishes and cereals were frequently in short supply and the staff (mostly untrained East Europeans) seemed to be unsupervised and not allocated to specific tables. A wait for service of 20 minutes was not unusual. Reception staff were excellent... More

I was part of a group of 17 pax booked into this hotel on a B & B basis only. We arrived at approx. 4.00p.m and several of us asked about an evening meal, to our astonishment we were refused by the manager saying he was too busy that night. I have always understood that one of the 'rules' was... More

I read previous reviews complaining about the service at meal times. On one occasion I had to wait 2 mins and it was busy. The rest of the time it was prompt. Food was good with a choice of meals. My only problem was no bar open until five o'clock so no drinks in the afternoon. I found out the... More

Staff were exceptional, working very... More
