The hotel is situated in Paphos old town with lovely views of the beach and sea. Local boutique and mainstream shops (e.g. Marks and Spencer) are nearby along with the local market. The bus station is also within 5 minutes walk that goes to local villages and the harbour - a bus service goes every 10 mins to the harbour, 15 mins in the evening from outside the hotel. Our room was clean, if a little tired looking but the hotel is due a refurb. Air conditioning was free which I've never encountered before as some hotels charge extra! The staff were very good, especially Victoria and Karin. Christianos, David and Bogdan in the bar kept smiling despite not having many people to serve on occasion and Tom and Joe in Reception were also helpful (on our last night Joe was bombarded by people asking questions, wondering why their phone wasn't working and so on and he kept his cool magnificently). The food we found excellent - breakfast was a mix of British (Cyprus style, not Walls sausages, Heinz baked beans etc.) and Continental and dinner saw a home made soup, various salads, two meat types, vegetables and four desserts. Chef Steve did work hard to produce good fare! As for the concern over the 'other guests' who ate in a separate restaurant, after chatting to them in the lift in perfect English, they hail from Palestine. Noone seemed to know if they were asylum seekers, refugees or as the manager states, paying guests. Invariably the only time you will see the other guests is at mealtimes. I never found these guests a concern to me, if anything some of the other British and other European guests were poorly behaved and rude and were an irritation. Fair play to the manager for defending his corner from 'little England'/Daily Mail syndrome, especially as swathes of Cyprus are occupied by expats!
An excellent hotel that is great value for the price paid!
