Stayed at the Dubrovnik Friday through Sunday to attend the Special Olympics English National Powerlifting Championships. Our rooms were exactly as advertised, warm, comfortable and quiet during the sleeping hours. The Championship event was very well presented, hosted and provided for. The Gala Dinner after the event was wonderfully set up, great meal, good disco and bar service. However, the best feature of the hotel was / is their staff, who were wonderful in every aspect. We are looking forward to returning here for the next Championships. And our ladies are bringing the white shirt for Mr. Darcy.

Dear Colin715


Mr Darcy speaking. Please tell the ladies of Scotland that the shirt should be a fine white 100% cotton one!

You were a fantastic group of people and hope to see you return next year!!!

Thanks for taking the time to respond and send on our best wishes to every one.

Kindest regards

We stayed there for 3 nights and the service was excellent. We are particularly impressed by Simon, he is definitely an asset for the hotel. As there were problems of the wi-fi and he was giving us option to swap to another room. He also suggested nearby sightseeing places and restaurants as the hotel don't have dinners served on Sunday. His other colleague in the reception was also very friendly and the staff in their restaurant were very delightful especially the female waitresses. The restaurant was very busy on a Friday night and they did mention it ahead as there were a group of people they need to serve and a wedding on Saturday. Simon even offered the option to book a table for us if we want to.
One thing for further improvement is the heating, it was so warm in the room and if the temperature can be adjusted, it would be great. Housekeeping was good, toiletries and towels, tea bag & biscuits replenished daily.
Overall, nice location & lovely staff. Lister Park is literally 5 mins walking distance and fantastic restaurants (Thai & Italian) are nearby. A really worthwhile stay, 5 stars for the service.

Like Ladybanker55, my husband and I were also taking advantage of a Groupon when we enjoyed a wonderfully indulgent afternoon tea during our first visit to the Dubrovnik last Friday. What a treat! Although the unexpectedly heavy traffic meant we arrived later than planned, we were given a warm, friendly welcome and shown straight through to the dining area where a charming lady served our champagne. The cares of the week simply slipped away and, for a very indulgent hour or so, we were transported into a different world. The sandwiches were varied and delicious; the scones and cakes of a standard that Mary Berry herself would have commended. It's great to be able to recommend a family-run establishment for its ambience, service, attention to detail and food. We shall return!

I bought my husband an afternoon tea with champagne as part of his birthday present. On arrival a very friendly member of staff took us into the dining room and we had a choice of tables. We had our drink, then the afternoon tea was brought in, there was a selection of sandwiches and three home made cakes each, they were absolutely delicious. We had a cafetiere of coffee which was included in the price, we have had to pay extra for this at other afternoon tea visits. The lady who served us came to check if we needed anything else, very good service without being pushy. The staff we saw were very friendly. the toilets were absolutely spotless, the hotel is set on a hill but if you are driving this is no problem as there is a car park in front of the hotel, I would certainely recommend this hotel for the afternoon tea which I bought off Groupon, well worth the money.

Groupon afternoon champagne tea - no one asked our name or time of booking on arrival, or really spoke to us at all, just told to sit in the bar. As a result it was 4pm when we got taken in for tea when our booking was 3.30pm.

Food was nice, scones some of the nicest I have had, but completely marred by the continous repeat playing of Louis Armstrong's "It's A Wonderful World", this is a very short song anyway so for this to be the only song played meant we heard it approx 15 times. Maybe it is their way of getting people to leave as it definitely caused us to cut our tea short! Won't be back and wont be recommending it to anyone.

Dear Sunny Tigs


We apologies for any inconvenience caused. It was a busy afternoon and the waitress did not hear the music. We have informed them to look out for this in future. We could however, have simply rectified this if you would have informed us to prevent the torture which you say you incurred.

Many thanks for informing us


Kind Regards

My wife and I have just returned from a three night business and pleasure stay at The Dubrovnik which we enjoyed very much. The staff in the hotel are superb, and we received a very friendly welcome throughout our stay. We had 2 afternoons free and the staff recommended visits to Haworth and Ilkley Moor which we really enjoyed, although we needed to wrap up well because it was very cold! We ate in the hotel on the first night (Monday) and chose the salmon dish which was a very good choice for us. We then moved to the bar area and enjoyed listening to a jazz band which was exceptionally good - there were about 12 musicians in the band. The staff recommended 2 nearby (about 10 minutes walk) restaurants which offered early bird menus, and we tried them both. Orlandos is an Italian restaurant with a varied menu, whilst My Thai serves a variety of Thai dishes. Both were excellent in their own way and we can recommend them. We had a slight problem when we booked in because there had been a very heavy overnight frost and the heater in our room was not working at all well. Simon fixed it very quickly, but when it stopped working a second time he suggested that we might move to a different room. We were then upgraded to a better room (39) which was excellent, so we have nothing but praise for the way we were treated. Kath and Sharon on reception were helpful, friendly and professional, as were the other staff in the bar and the restaurant. We will definitely return if we are ever in Bradford again.
