“Fawlty Towers”
Reviewed 8 June 2008

The view from our room was spectacular and I have it as my mobile screen saver.

Dubrovnik is a beautiful place to be in. Hotel Vis is a fair call from that beauty.

Our room was tiny. It was like a room for 2 children that adjoined to their parent's room.

The house cleaning staff were great. Rooms were cleaned very well, sheets were changed daily, staff were really friendly.

Front end staff were pathetic. My travel partner and I complained about the size of our room, and the hotel manager raised his hands and said 'what do you want me to do?'

We ate 'a la carte' at their restaurant one night - the buffet looked like all guests had sneezed into all dishes on offer. They gave us a basket of bread - no big deal. We asked for butter. They charged us the equivalent of 2 Aussies dollars for each tiny slab of butter that hardly covers a slice of bread.

We drink spirits. One night we asked for some ice to have with our spirits. Never in the world have I been asked to pay for ice. We paid 12 kunas for a small ucket of ice - about 3 Australian dollars. In Ausralia we get 3 kilogram bags of ice for less.

Dubrovnik is beautiful. Hotel Vis is not beautiful.

  • Liked — The view from our room

Reviewed 16 May 2008

My husband and I stayed at this hotel during a Cosmos tour of the Dalmation Coast. We did not pay the extra for a sea view and our room faced trees and a road. However, the road was not busy and our room was very quiet at night. The room itself was comfortable and the bathroom appeared brand new. Another couple said their first room was not too nice so they asked to be moved and then it was fine.
Breakfast and dinner were included in our package. I thought the evening meals especially were quite good with lots of variety. Sometimes the food wasn't hot enough, but there is a microwave available.
All the hotel staff (reception, restaurant, bar, and cleaning staff) were friendly and courteous.
The only negative was the beach which badly needed tidying up. There were bits of metal and glass and only a few loungers. Perhaps they didn't expect people to want to use the beach in early May, but the weather was sunny and warm.

There is a fabulous cliffside walk on the opposite side of the bay, ideal for morning and evening walks. Also a promenade nearby with many bars and cafes, nice for a drink before or after dinner. The bus to Dubrovnik stops outside the hotel. The fare to the city walls is about 1€ and you can buy tickets at hotel reception. The journey takes 10 minutes.

All in all, we would stay here again.
