“Average hotel in excellent location”
Reviewed 15 May 2012

We took a driving holiday through Croatia and in most cities finding our hotel was a breeze – there were signs on the side of the road directing you to the hotel. So we knew we were in the vicinity of the hotel but the Kolovare didn’t really have a sign that is visible from the roadway – we must have driven past it a good five times before we went into a convenience store almost right next door to ask for directions. So make sure you have a GPS.

Once we found the hotel though we found it to be in a great location – free parking meant we could leave the car and walk along the water into town which at sunset was really lovely. Once in town we sat by the sea organ for a while which was out of this world.

The rooms were clean, the bathroom was quite modern and new-ish (with a shower over bath combination) though the rest of the room was a little dated.

Our room had a very pleasant outlook looking over the pool and the sea.

Breakfast was pretty average unfortunately, so we’d recommend eating out.

Recently stayed for a week on business. Stayed in several rooms as electrical problems forced a couple of moves on my first night. Determined that some rooms are nicer and more spacious than others (without much rhyme or reason). Some hold outdated and poorly maintained bathrooms while others are quite nice and recently updated.

All staff friendly and helpful, but I must agree with other reviews that rate the breakfast offering as fair or poor. The free WiFi and business center access were most helpful throughout the trip.

The location is excellent for a walk into the city center, and a large supermarket / the central bus station is just 3-4 blocks away.

For a "tourist bus" hotel it was fine. The breakfast wasn't much. It was late in the season so the pool was closed but you couldn't walk around because of broken glass. It was walking distance from the bus station and to the old town - that was good.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view or balcony.

It's a pity that such a great hotel has such a poor management, which allows itself to use the hotel's good facility to offer a poor service at the breakfast buffet. Went there on a business trip, and needed a good room and a good breakfast near the city. Good room I got, spacious enough, with a beautiful view of the sea, with nice bathroom. And besides, the hotel is spot on the beach, 10-15 minutes of fabulous walk from the old city on a peninsula but also 10-15 minutes walk from the business areas. However, cannot take it for granted that a breakfast buffet could not be better for this price. The hotel management business is not about selling the rooms, but about selling the service. There were nice waiters hopping around a really poor buffet table, trying to do the most with the least offered... With this superbly positioned location and such great architecture of the hotel, it's a real pity that there is a lack of a good management to raise this hotel's offer to a higher level.
Otherwise, the hotel is totally recommendable. A low rank goes to the management!

Room Tip: Opt for a room with the sea view and at the wing ends!

We stayed in this hotel as a group of 15 and I was pleasantly suprised. After reading some reviews I was worried before we arrived. The rooms were clean, nice showers, balconies and comfy beds - all you could need. The breakfast was just OK, and they cleared up too early (9.30 started clearing around us). The pool was small and the outside area was tired and not as clean as it could be. However it was fine, especially as we had it to ourselves!

Locationwise we were just a few metres from the sea, and only 10 mins from town. there was a great club just 200m from the back of the hotel.

All in all you would be hard pushed to find a better location for a bargain weekend away with friends, none of us managed to spend more than £100 for all meals and drinks (and there were plenty of those over two nights)

Highly recommended for what it is. Not the Ritz, but a cheap, clean hotel close to town. Hence the high score

Rooms clean and comfortable, tv could do with more english speaking channels. Breakfast was buffet not bad but not great, will get you through till lunch. didn't eat otherwise in hotel so can't comment on lunch or dinner menus. Main plus is location, right beside beach and 5 to 10 min walk to old town oh and good pool.
