I stayed for two nights at this hotel and was so fortunate to have a nice big room with my own balcony overlooking the Gannel. I know from the others in my group that I was 'the lucky one' - and did I enjoy it! The hotel is located in a quiet place with an outstanding view from the balconies,...

We stayed for the second time at this hotel July 15th-19th, first stay was 2yrs ago. Our return visit surpassed expectation, we had a relaxed and very pleasurable stay. Reading previous reviews l totally agree with the people who have praised this little gem, and for the critics, if you want 4 or 5 star and entertainment every-night, go find...

Having read mixed reviews of this hotel I wasn't expecting too much but was generally quite pleasantly surprised. The views are certainly wonderful, the staff are helpful but I agree with some other reviewers that the hotel needs a little TLC. Although the public areas are stunning, the bedroom that I had was rather dated in terms of decor. However...

It was located directly underneath the dining room on the main floor level and so when kids were running about it was like a heard...

We stayed at the Hotel California from 18.5.13 to 22.5.13 choosing to stay in the Gannel Suite following reading the reviews on this page. First impressions of the hotel are very grand although on closer inspection you can tell that some serious cash needs to be spent to make this into the 3 star hotel it claims to be. Chairs...

This is separate from the hotel so we rate this as excellent. Our son recently had his birthday party there and the man was so helpful to us, that we shall go again. He does everything !! We shall be back. He often takes his respite carer along.
