    Fabulous long weekend
    Although the hotel is getting ready to close down the pool area shortly the facilities were fine. Free upgrade to sea view was a very nice touch. Staff friendly and gave good recommendations for restaurants. Overall great stay and look forward to returning.

    Fabulous hotel with character in a great location
    Just lovely - Angelo the concierge is amazingly cool, calm and so knowledgeable. Delighted to be given an upgrade at check in. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone at this hotel. Will return for a third visit in 2019!

    Memorable hotel would be hard to beat!
    Fantastic experience from start to finish beautiful setting outstanding service plush ambience and the views were magnificent thoroughly enjoyed and delighted with our choice. This hotel is the one if you want to feel pampered and indulged.

    Good 6.0
    Very disappointing
    To be honest, it was rather disappointing. It is supposed to be a 5 star hotel, but very few Staff were pleasant or obliging. We were hoping to use the Lord Byron Restaurant for our Son's Birthday meal, and noticed it does not open on a Thursday! In the middle of summer, with a full hotel - seemed a bit strange to us. We asked for a special table for breakfast with Prosecco on his Birthday, and was told 'it is not possible'! Even though the Breakfast room and terrace was only quarter full. The whole place had a feeling of being tired and of a bygone age. Although we had a balcony, the room was very small, it would have been more suitable as a single room.
