I must agree with other Tripadvisors that this hotel is not the 5 stars it is claiming. Yes it is a lovely hotel, grand by name and grand by first impressions, but it is the little things that don't make it the 5 stars. On entering the beautiful reception, spotless and so grand, we were looking forward to a really relaxing holiday, a well organised booking -in (even at 5 in the morning) a very clean room with a reasonable view- YES this is what we wanted, then off to breakfast, pleasant staff, a buffet to suit almost everyone with a good feed to set you up for a hectic day.We were on a half board basis and the evening meal was as good, no, better than the breakfast, a good selection of meats, fish,pasta,salads and sweets to die for, and so much choice I swear we must have put on a stone in a week. But then, the other essentials to make the hotel really good where lacking, the paintwork needed a bit of tidying up, the entertainment left a lot to be desired and the food that although was really good, was only ever warm and not hot as we wanted.
The location was, for us, perfect, a short stroll to the harbour and old/new town, shops and bars a-plenty just around any corner, across the road from the shingle beach, lovely clean sea ( a bit cold in April though). Perfect if you wanted to go further afield boats to Symi, Marmaris and others, a reasonable bus service, all in all a highly recommended hotel, absolutely perfect if the small issues could be sorted out.
We could highly recommend a meal in the Italian restaurant, after the scrum down of the buffet meals, the calm and peaceful ambience was a welcome change, the food was really good, not a massive menu list, but the food quality was superb and we had a hot meal for a change, Popi, the waitress was wonderful and attentive but not in any way intrusive. There is also a Chinese option which was always very busy but we did not frequent me not being into that food.
