Staff not friendly and rooms outdated. We did half board so we had breakfast and dinner, didn't realise we had to pay for drinks with our dinner. We had to make a complaint when we arrived about 2am because the sheets were dirty and the mini cooler wasn't working.

Giving this hotel a 2 star is a kindness. Had an awful stay, very dirty, food was disgusting, stained and smelly towels, overall I would not recommend visiting and staying at this hotel. The space outside was not suitable for the amount of guests they had as it was too small. The serving area in the dining room was dirty... More

Competent decent accommodation. No frills. Good value for money. Food a bit bland and unimaginative. Overall acceptable at the price. Could do with a room makeover. Bathroom dated needs freshened up. Entertainment aimed at the older guest but fine to pass the night.

I have read other reviews of this hotel and the responses from management. I can confirm what others have said, this is 2 star at best in my view. I note that the responses from the hotel are vague and do not address specific issues. In addition some of the positive responses seem to be clearly "planted" given their vague... More

I am generous giving this hotel 3 stars. The lobby may look the part but the rooms certainly weren't. They were basic and clean. No kettle but do have air conditioning and a hairdryer. The room had a tv but the only english chanel was sky news and a returnable deposit was asked for if you wanted a remote control.... More

The hotel is well situated two streets from Bugibba bus station, a five minute walk from the front and situated near loads of bars, restaurants and shops. However, the hotel itself looks tired. The rooms could do with a lick of paint and new furniture - especially new mattresses. My party had four rooms between and not of the beds... More

I would rate this hotel more as a 3 star. I feel some previous comments are unfair, The hotel is clean and tidy even if a little dated in the rooms. The pool is of a good size and the sections with different depths is good especially for little ones and non-swimmers. We found the staff friendly and helpful. We... More
