Three of us have stayed here twice now for the festival. John offered a choice of rooms on both visits. Beds are clean and comfortable and rooms have perfectly adequate shower or bath facilities. I believe that they take school bookings so there are lots of beds in the rooms which gives you room to spread. John was more than... More

To say this was a disappointment is about right as the owner is so friendly and helpful that it makes you feel bad about complaining about how dated the place was. We stayed in the family room which was quite large but the bathroom was only the size of a wardrobe. I could sit on the toilet with my feet... More

I was looking for a last minute family break on a shoestring budget, all the South Coast resorts were way out of our reach then I happened across The Altavia. I read mixed reviews but decided to give it a chance. I would recommend calling direct before booking. John, the owner booked our Ferry tickets for us saving us a... More

Had booked my short break through Expedia that was the start of things to go so wrong. My wife, my grandson and myself arrived at the hotel only to be told we were not expected, after lots of phone calls eventually we were allowed a room. Was then told by the manager that if we didn't like this room then... More

As another reviewer said, in time warp - like old folks home, needs big money spent on this. Booking in was like something off Hotel Inspector. Owner and staff trying to be nice but laughably inefficient. Told breakfast was at 8.30. They don't mean 8.30 - 10.00 - they mean 8,30... we were knocked up at 8.40 to go down.... More

Although the owner and staff could not be faulted for our stay, the hotel requires a bit more TLC, we stayed in 2 rooms (a double and a family room) both served the purpose we required, the double room was fine with en suite facility, the family room ample beds(1 double, 1 single and bunk bed) unfortunately a really small...
