Reviewed April 5, 2009

Extremely poor management of this hotel which includes not replacing lightbulbs, not being able to plug lamps in the foyer into sockets as there were no sockets available, not replenishing toilet paper, not cleaning blocked toilets, not enough crockery and cutlery, very hard mattresses on beds, lift announcing the wrong floor number, inablity to set a table for dinner, not lighting the candles at dinner, no flowers in the lobby, no tourist leaflets in hotel, not replenishing coffee, milk or bacon at breakfast, limited choice of meals, over cooked vegetables, no plug sockets even remotely near a mirror in the room and an unrepaired hole in the wall by the electric socket in the bathroom. Towels are changed strictly twice a week by a very unfriendly maid. The dining room appears to be in a cellar - a bit like eating in a dungeon. Hotel entertainment is of the poorest standard imaginable with a singer on a Sunday night who can't sing and a disco on a Friday who doesn't have any remotely modern songs to play. The hotel is very central and there is no privacy to sunbathe as the pool area is completely overlooked by neighbouring flats and it is well away from the tourist area in Paphos. I would strongly recommend that you avoid this hotel at all costs.

This holiday was just a treat for us to escape the miserable and long winter and the doom and gloom of our godforsaken country. We got the weather on a good week with the exception of a couple of overcast days. I can honestly say this is one of the best hotels i've ever stayed in and this is largely down to the staff who run it. I do agree with one fo the previous contributors comments about breakfast, it was a bit samey but hey it's breakfast! Dinner on the other hand was tremendous and we did not eat one bad meal. my only gripe about dinner was the fact the chef serves it up so you kind of were given whatever portions he wanted to give you. My other half is a larger chap and he got given heaps compared to others just cos he was big. The other issue with dinner is that you don't get a complimentary tea or coffee as you would in other hotels ive stayed in where ive gone half board and i thought it was a bit of a cheek expecting to pay for it. Deserts were lovely and gemma from Edinburgh take note - i loved the jelly and you didn't have to eat it you know! it would have been good if they had offered an alternative if you don't have a sweet tooth like biscuits and cheese but I have sent this suggestion to the hotel management. The staff were so helpful and friendly and I had a couple of mishaps where i lost things so a big shout out to Steve at reception. The entertainment was enjoyable, particularly Nick the singer who looks nothing like his poster suggests. Rooms were clean and comfy and worth paying the extra few quid for the seaview as it is a lovely view. As we went off season the hotel did resemble something like a retirement home, but you know what, I'd rather have that than screaming kids getting on my wick and as most of them were long term winter residents, they imparted their knowledge on the area to us and were always willing to chat. There is a nice wee market further up the road. The harbour is about a 20 minutes walk from the hotel and its uphill to get back unless you take the service bus but we didn't mind the walk. I liked the fact the hotel was well away from the real resort area. Pafos isn't exactly as hectic as Limassol but I could imagine it would be in high season and this hotel is a nice getaway from the bustle, it is also near the municipal buildings and the Byzantian museum and turkish baths- worth a wander about.
All in all, I highly recommend this hotel, provided unlike gemma you don't expect the moon at breakfast time!

Had a nice enough holiday but to be honest the food was like school dinners with very little choice,infact no choice of veg at all.Desserts were stodggy with artificial cream so we ended up sticking to jelly (yes Jelly!) Breakfasts were poor,no fresh melon or pineapple as I had expected also you had to have butter,no margerine on offer.We weren't exactly the youngest couple there but it really is a hotel that caters for the elderly with folk staying there for the winter. There were 3 Golden wedding couples staying which was lovely but you know what I mean by elderly.Wouldn't go again although it was quite a good location and there were no problems trying to get a sunbed.Just a shame about the food!

Stayed at this hotel with my mum and sister and had a FAB time. Weather was kinda hit and miss (although it was snowing in SCOTLAND so really couldn'y complain) but we still managed to fill our time :-)

Harbour was GREAT, very pretty and only about 30-40 min stroll with things to look out for on the walk down.(look out for a cave like cut out into the hillside just past the traffic lights and across from the ROMAN hotel, it has some great tourist veiw points (we generally walked down and got a bus no 11 back) to right outside the hotel.

Taken the bus into Coral Bay, beach was nice and went to a little GREEK taverna type place near the beach. (was next to a chinese pagoda) The food was great and we even got a free banana, lol. Didn't really think it had much in the way of shopping but good for a day at the beach.

Taken the service bus to Limassol for the day, you get this almost right outside the hotel and it was cheaper and without all the pick-ups. Went into a wee seafront bar/resturant just along from where you get the bus back home. (Watch out for the 164 year old in his disabled car wanting to pick you up at the bus stop, lol) It was VERY clean and done great puddings (we only went in for a coffee and seen them and desided we MUST sample) Oh and they done great Fresh squeesed OJ.

Food at the hotel was good, only had one night that i personally didn't enjoy but it was the chefs night off, maybe that was the reason.

All the staff were VERY nice and had excellent Scottish/English. GARY and Theo were great (resturant and bar staff)

Room nice and clean (we had a connecting room) which was good. Well for us maybe not our room neighbours whom i think got fed up with us singing paper roses, lol

Entertainment was on Friday and Sunday but as we were there on VALENTINES night it was put on for an extra night in the Saturday - WOW. The bar had a HAPPY HOUR from 10.30 to 11.30 even on there cocktails which were FAB - yum yum.

The hotel is situated in the shopping part, which was good for us ladies but the Euro was rubbish and everything did seem VERY expensive. Just up the road from the hotel was the fruit market and general hoiday tat that we all know and love.

This hotel seemed to be most SCOTTISH and ENGLISH and was VERY friendly, eveyone spoke and said hi and asked how your day was or what you had done which was nice. As it is a small hotel you get to know a lot of the other guest.

BEST FREINDLY HOTEL i've been to and hope to go back again (maybe with our husbands this time) mmmmmm

The staff at this hotel are very friendly, helpful and polite, a special mention has to go to a young man named Gary, he is so bubbly and full of energy it was a pleasure to come down to breakfast in the morning. The hotel is a fair bit away from the harbour but it is walkable. It only has two nights of entertainment a week which left me with not a lot to do for the other five evenings as I was on my own I didn't feel comfortable leaving the hotel after dark. The food was superb but maybe the puddings need a bit of attention! Overall...a lovely two weeks was had.

The staff here are polite and respectful and helpful suggesting places for us to go, giving us maps, phoning friends for further infomation etc. The room was very clean and had heater/ AC a nice balcony and a lovely hot shower/ bath. The location was very central to the shops, museums but it was only a 2km walk to the harbour. There is a bus if you want but its a nice 20min walk. We went all inclusinve as Veggies and were well catrered for by the chef. Even though I lost my inclusive pass on the first day and locke the key in the room the staff were only too pleased to help me out. There is also a ery secure car park to put the hire car in which is great and very useful.

Booked last minute at cheap price ..really positive experience!!! better than expected and would really recommend for ppl wanting quiet break in friendly hotel in decent location. Checked reviews b4 we booked and genuinely can't understand any1 who could critisise..and i'm normally rather fussy. As vegetarians we expected some problems but the chef ..who is a star..insisted on making us individual meals..even when there was an option for us already. Staff just couldn't do enough to help and created very friendly atmosphere. As for rest.. clean and well presented.. nice room with decent views if you pay little extra for sea view( in the distance!!) Not near to the harbour and major tourist area but in very nice district near to the market and designer shops!!! Would recommend but not for younger ppl wanting wild time or those with kids perhaps!!
