We spent 6 nights in Tamaris. Our accomodation was clean and well-equipped. There was cleaning everyday. We got a entry card which was confortable instead of a key. The breakfast was the usual continental foods (like scrambled eggs, cold meats, cereals,..) The old center is about 10 minutes by car. It is worth the price.

Hotel is app 30 min away from city-centre. Rooms are newly refurbished and clean.
As Tamaris is mainly a restaurant known for lamb, it does smell all day long. Being a vegeterian, this is pretty disgusting.

There is no buffet table for breakfast and not much to choose from...

The only reason why our secretary book this hotel is price-quality ratio... And this one is great. But this is definitly the last time we are going here...

There are a number of vegetarian options as well!
This is one of our favourite restaurants in Zadar and we go there, and take others, often.
Tamaris is extremely well known for its lamb and there are often two spit roasting in the outside grill area. Lamb together with Peka cooked potatoes, an absolute delight. We have tried most dishes on the menu and would not fault any of them. Linda's particular favourite is their chocolate cake which was on the menu originally and has been so popular, it is still there.
As it is also an hotel, it appears to be used a lot by business people. But is also very popular with tourists and locals and is popular for special events.
Highly recommended

I used this hotel as a return to civilisation after camping at a music festival in the Croatian countryside. Very clean, good amenities, modern building, helpful and quite superb food (with a huge breakfast included in the tariff). Strong wifi signal, a touch pricey for a basic room, but it was high season in the Adriatic i guess... rather a long way out of the town, a good 30 minute walk to the old city and the numerous sights (and the bus station), but not a major hassle if you are happy to walk or hail taxis. Immediately opposite a large supermarket for any shopping needs. If you have any mobility issues this is not a good place as there is not a lift. Would stay here again for sure.

My room was on the top floor, with no lift, but it seems other floors are not in use for accommodation.
Room is a single, with bedside table, desk and chair, flat-screen tv, and wardrobe.
There is a toilet with shower cubicle. The room and the hotel block seems very new.
The accommodation block is attached to a restaurant, where breakfast is served as a sit-down meal, rather than a self-service buffet; it is served from 07:00 to 10:00.
Wi-fi in the room is available and the room has air-conditioning, but no fridge.
Buses 4 and 6 go past the door of the hotel, and bus 1 stops close by. It is probably a 20 minute journey to the man tourist points in the city and buses are not that frequent, outside rush hour, say every 30 minutes to an hour. Thus, the place is best suited to those with their own transport.
The hotel is on Zadar outskirts and as such is surrounded by hypermarkets: useful for shopping
Staff are very, very friendly.
Hotel is only suitable for people with own transport.
