Positive Reviews

Stay here just for the view!

The best thing about this hotel are the views, and you can enjoy them from very spacious balconies in some rooms, or from the outdoor pool It is really a beautiful setting and worth visiting just for that reason, as well as many others.

Great value five star experience

This hotel is deserving of the ‘grand’ in its name The interior of the hotel is magnificent with big sweeping staircases and has real charm The service from all staff, including the restaurants and bars, is top standard They treat their guests like royalty and go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay All this for a very reasonable price.

Comfort and variety in every sense

The Grand Hotel Excelsior succeeds on attention to detail alone The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very well appointed with everything you need With the restaurants you’re spoilt for choice and the food is all very good The breakfast buffet is particularly notable with plenty to choose from and pancakes or eggs made fresh to order.

Negative Reviews

Location not good for mobility

If you’re planning on walking at all, be aware that although the hotel is very close to the main bus terminal and city centre, it is up a lot of steps or a steep slope, and also crosses a busy road This may not be ideal for people with limited mobility.

Don’t opt for second best here

If you’re on a budget, this hotel isn’t recommended The cheapest rooms don’t have good views, and as it is some of the sea views are only partial views You’re better to go for the premium experience otherwise you will probably be disappointed.

Five stars a bit of a stretch

Some areas of this hotel need work and for that reason it doesn’t quite deserve a five star rating The exterior needs painting and cleaning, and some of the interior décor is quite dated If this matters to you then choose elsewhere.
