High Life Hotel
Ranked #1 of 30 Hotels in Kyrenia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 October 2010

The High Life is an unpretentious, quiet hotel in a fabulous location. The rooms are large - much larger than an average Mediterranean hotel room and ours had a galleried bedroom upstairs. Excellent views of the sea and mountains. Towels are changed every day and bedlinen every other day. The whole place is spotlessly clean.

Swimming pool was a couple of steps away from our room - also kept very clean.

The terrace where meals are taken is set above the sea and is very pleasant. The quality of the food at dinner is very good, although the menu doesn't have a lot of choice and there is an occasional longish wait for the main course although with good company and a bottle of Turkish wine it's not that bad.

I'm not a cat lover and although there are15, they are not obtrusive, seeming to spend most of their day asleep in the sun so they didn't bother us at all.

This is a family run hotel and everyone is helpful. Our flight was delayed and we didn't arrive until 2.30am but one of the daughters was there to greet us with a smile to show us to our room. We had help with sightseeing directions as well.

It's very quiet at night as the hotel is some away from the road and the bar is a long way from the rooms, althought it's not the sort of place where people stay up late and that suited us fine.

Because of the location and the ambience, its all incredibly relaxing and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We stayed for two weeks in September and it was one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in. Everywhere was spotless , my room no 32 was fantastic. We had views of the harbour and the mountains. The hotel is small and very peacefull.The pool fabulous. We ate in the hotel a few times and the meals and the setting were just perfect.
Thankyou to the staff and management. For us it was so nice I have booked for Sepember 2011 . Kyrenia itself is really nice and close by.

High Life hotel is a super B&B. Rooms very well appointed, immaculately clean, with quality towels and plenty of hot water. Swimming pool very well kept, as is the whole sun lounger area round the pool. Everu room has a balcony, some with better views than others. First floor room have best view, but the sleeping area, up a flight of internal stairs does not benefit particularly well from the air conditioning.

The breakfast terrace is lovely, overlooking the sea, but the menu lacks imagination, and service can be slow with not always getting what you have asked for.

Dinner menu very restricted, unimaginative and expensive in relation to the other restuarants in comfortable walking distance from the hotel. Would be disappointed had we booked half board

Car hire from the hotel good, reaonably priced with full insurance included in the price.

Would we stay there again? Certainly. But we would bring our own tea bags and coffeet 75p for a tea bag from the hotel is nonsense.

Peter and Sue.

I reviewed the ratings and was hesitant to try this hotel. Since the location of the hotel is good as it is right on beach, we tried it. The stay was comfortable for the price we paid and it seems that the new management is working charms for this hotel. But it is far from where it was 3 years ago and we are willing to try again in another year or so.

Have been going to North Cyprus for 15 years this is the worst hotel we have stayed at. Food poor and had to pay extra for a lot of it (we were h.b.) noisy air conditioning, filthy beach, all bills were over charged check carefully. If you have allergy to cats beware there are about 12 of them there. Needs lots of T.L.C.

Dear Guest,

We are sorry you were unsatisfied with your experience while with us and appreciate your feedback.

Based on the feedback from our guests, we have decided to offer our full menu to our HB guests at no extra cost. We hope this change will be a welcome one.

The beach in front of us is a public access beach and although we do our best to help keep it clean, some days it is beyond our control that it is not as clean as it should be.

We have recently taken extra measures to make sure mistakes on bills are caught before bills are presented to our guests. If our guests still find errors on their bills, we make necessary adjustments right away without any hassle.

As for the cats, although majority of our guests tell us the cats never bother them, we are looking into finding a way to move some more of them away from the property to another location they can comfortably live at. We have already reduced their count during the last few months.

Once again, thank you for your feedback.

Regards,
Huseyin
High Life
