2/10 Poor

The restaurant staff are very nice and friendly, however the hotel is very dated and i now discovered I have bites from bed bugs all over my feet, which is now ruining the first days of my holidays. A nice place to stay with great views however cleanliness comes first, so it’s a no go.

Overall okay but very bad service
Hotel was okay until we wanted to leave to Columbo and were trying to get an Uber but there was a few youngsters outside that sent every car away because they wanted us to take them for 3 times the price when we went to the hotel guy for help he offered to get us a taxi from the hote for an even more ridicules price and he would help us out with at all we honestly did not feel safe at that point and it was very disappointing how they didn’t wanna help us saying we welcome to call police but there’s nothing they can do
