“Would stay here again - no problems!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Stayed here for a week in end of October 2012, and were very happy with the service of the hotel (originally we had only planned on one night, but decided to extend). Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was spacious and clean (we stayed in a family suite with plenty of room for our family of four). Breakfasts were also fine, with all you need to keep you going. I would agree that the Internet service in the rooms was slow though, but this wasn't important enough to take a star off.

We stayed here for one night last Spring and it was perfect! The room was clean, modern, new and the shower in the spacious bathroom was amazing! The staff helped us with everything we needed, and even made friendly conversation while I sipped my tea waiting for my husband. The location was right across from the ferry, so perfect if you are on foot. We had our car and found a free parking spot right across the street. The roof top deck had new comfortable chairs and was a nice place to go for an evening drink. The location is perfect and close to everything. There is even a little grocery store a few doors down for any snack or other needs. I would highly recommend the hotel...great night stay!!

The staff is very friendly and welcoming and the hotel is at a superb cation right in front of the harbor. It was disappointing and unjustifiable at this day and age that they don't have internet service in the rooms and that the small refrigerator is unable to cool properly, let alone make ice for the small ice cube tray in it, especially in view of the hot summer weather. The bathroom is very modern but the floor of the tub enclosure is dangerously slippery and there is no way to hang the showerhead overhead.

We spent four nights at Hotel Excelsior as an extended weekend break. It's handy in terms of location: behind the town hall/square and in front of the ferry terminal. I read reviews saying the ferry noise was intrusive but we had a sea view room and didn't really notice it. I should add we live in London so maybe a factor; the ferries quickly became background noise (windows are double glazed) and didn't wake us up. Actually we enjoyed watching the boats passing to/fro - reminded us we were on an island. Not having to hassle to find our hotel on arrival was also welcome. Rooms are middling size but spotless. Staff are very friendly. Location wise it's an easy 1 minute stroll to the town centre or along the waterside and there's a supermarket a few doors down. Breakfast has a bit of everything but isn't extraordinary. All in all a nice, clean hotel, very friendly staff and easy location. We had a nice stay.

Pros
A clean and relatively new property next to the ferry stop (never was troubled during my stay).
A good base to travel around this wonderful archipelago with the best beaches in Europe and great islands nearby.
A good place to dine around from.

Cons
Rooms on smallish side, internet in the room is very slooooow, hard to be in touch with your work. The personnel is probably part-time/seasonal, pretty indifferent to what is going on around. No spa,swimming pool, or fitness area (not a 4 star it purports to market).

Overall, with La Maddalena Hotel & Yacht Club closed until 2013, the best (and not expensive) option in La Maddelena, and archipelago is magnificent!
