The placement of this hotel is very good, a 10min walk away from the town centre and a short taxi ride from the airport. The staff are lovely and always happy to help.
However, unfortunately the downsides do outweigh the upsides. We paid for bed and breakfast at the hotel, and breakfast was a buffet, help yourself style layout. Every single morning without fail, the hot items - fried eggs, bacon, sausages - were cold. The heaters they use to keep the food warm do absolutely nothing. And the quality of the food was not good, very oily and not tasty at all. We gave up in the last few days and had to spend extra money getting breakfast elsewhere.
The hotel is in dire need of renovating, paint is peeling from the outside walls, broken tiles in the rooms and walls - it’s very much weathered. The beds are very hard so if you have back trouble beware.
The room was clean, however the bathroom had build up of hair, soap scum and whatnot in the floor corners that had turned into black goo - not a pleasant sight. The in room fridge was also not cold at all.
I appreciate this is a 3* so I’m not expecting miracles, but a hot breakfast and clean bathroom is surely a basic thing to get right.
As above, the one thing I can’t fault is the staff. They are brilliant and always there when you need them. If you want a basic bed to rest your head at night then the Alkyon is an option, but avoid the breakfast.
