It's all been said before. The hotel is very good in every respect and special credit to EVI for her friendly attentiveness at meal times. Breakfasts could be improved with fresh fruit instead of tinned, but that is nit picking.
The hotel faces east, so sitting on a balcony at the front, you look across the sea to Albania. The view might be obscured by an incomplete building directly in front of the hotel. The rooms on the right facing north look across the bay to the old fortress, but they get no sun all day. If sitting on your balcony in full sun is what you need, then have a room on the left (numbers 01 to about 13). There is still a pretty view from the higher floors too.
The blue bus number 2 goes into town every 20 minutes. Tickets are €1.50 on the bus, or buy them in advance from the kiosk across the road from the hotel at €1.10. The hotel sits in a one way system so the return bus does not pass by. You have to get off at the Avli restaurant about 300m away and walk back. Alternatively board the bus to Kanoni at Avli (same fares) and enjoy the magnificent scenery there whilst sipping on a cooling drink and watching the aircraft landing. This turned out to be a popular pastime with visitors of all ages.
There are several restaurants nearby, some of which seem to be very popular late into the evening, or you can easily get into the town centre either on foot, or by bus. The hotel's dinner buffet is very good value at €15, although I would not particularly want it every night, so a B&B package might be best.
Do visit the nearby Mon Repos palace and grounds, which provide a welcome relief from the heat of the midday sun. This is where the Duke of Edinburgh was born, and entrance to the grounds is free; the house entrance is only a couple of euros.
