I do presume that this hotel is one of the 4/5 star hotels in the City Lodge group of hotels. I stayed at the hotel between the 9th to the 13 of February and must add that this hotel is average at best. Why
The service is slow , particularly during breakfast.
The breakfast choice is very limited.
Room service consist of menu's from outside restaurants, for a presumably 4 star hotel this is unacceptable. I would suggest that the hotel include more restaurants on their list if their kitchen stops service after breakfast or open their kitchen at night.
The staff is not all that friendly and seem not be sure when guest will depart. I for example returned to my room at around 1h00 on the 12th just to find my room not cleaned. When I ask the cleaning staff why, they informed me that according to the front desk I had to check out. Fortunately I returned when I did as I suspect that my room would have been allocated to one of the German guest who just arrived. The cleaning staff apologized for the confusion but not the manager or person at the front desk.
Because the hotel is next to the main road it can become very noisy at night,
On the plus side, the hotel is clean ,with amasing views of the sea. I like the fact that the rooms has its own balcony looking out on to the see.
