Everything about this "Family" run hotel is faultless!! Perhaps one thing, you come home having gained a few lbs from their superb breakfast (home made cakes included!!) The staff cannot do enough to make your stay perfect. We love it and 'we shall return" !!!

Loved this hotel. It was in off the road so had it's own element of seclusion. Convenient for the strip, the beach, and The Red Lion pub across the road that does a great spag bol. My two friends who were booked into another hotel spent most of their time here. The ambience around the pool especially at evening time...

The owner gives a warm welcome, but several people who are working in Drossia are arrogant and not that warm as the owner. We had booked a big room and we got a small room. We also were missing components in the room, like the microwave, the waterboiler, some cooking pans... When you ask for these things the staff answers...

Stayed here for 4 nights. Hotel is lovely. Pool area is really nice. Bed was extremely comfy. Room was cool. Breakfast was fine. The only problem was we didn't have internet in our room. We had it on balcony and in bathroom but not in room.
