We stayed in 4 hotels in Cyprus over a 10 day period, and this one probably had the best decor and pool, but was one of the most expensive.
Friendly reception staff at check in and manager spent time to talk about sightseeing, shopping etc in the vicinity which was very helpful. Room a decent size and clean. Breakfast good with a variety of interesting jams and eggs cooked to order. Location is ok, about 15 mins or so from old harbour, and 10 mins to roundabout with buses etc.
There are quite a few things to see in the area around Kyrenia, but we had only two nights, so another night would have been useful here. We did go to Heraclion castle which cost 60 TL by taxi return. We arrived from Nicosia which took about 30 mins on 4.5 TL bus.
We have recently returned from a trip to Bodrum, Selcuk and Istanbul and the prices in Kyrenia were far greater which was a bit offputting but still competetive compared to the UK.
Wifi is free in this hotel as you would expect.
Breakfast finishes at 10.30 am which was good for us, as we hate hotels with an early breakfast finish time.
Despite the large size of the pool they only had 32 sunbeds which was not enough to go round half the pool! They have far more than 16 rooms so this was very frustrating and must be a real problem in peak season. I made do on the floor, and my girlfriend pulled up a chair from the bar. Not ideal..
Bathroom looked good, but the shower screen wasnt really up to the job, a simple shower curtain would be better.
No shampoo provided which is unusual for this class of hotel, and lower class hotels in Cyprus did provide it.
The nearby mosque can be heard quite easily so ear plugs recommended.
Kyrenia is a lovely place in Cyprus, and I would recommend for 3 or 4 nights, but I would not want to stay at this hotel for a whole weeks holiday as not enough things to do in close proximity. (Pafos overwhelmingly gets the holiday vote...)

... we showered, changed and headed off for our meal....Kays calls it the one man band place as its run by one old boy who cook, serves and generally does the lot! We arrived to find only one person sat at a table, so just sat ourselves down and after the drinks order was taken out came the meze dishes....at least a dozen small plates with dips, pickles, meats and salads on them. Plus pitta bread, chips and the famous grated cabbage. Then we had the full kebab which was hellim, ...
Up and at them early Saturday as some shops shut at lunchtime....John went off to town for the great drainpipe hunt whilst Sarah pottered tidying bedroom after the paint had dried.
30 mins later and drainpipe shop found.....how exciting! However; being senile had to return home just to double check again length of pipe and exactly what bits would be neeeded. Quick breakfast and we were off again. Very helpful lady in the shop and soon we ...

Kyrenia, however, is unmistakably Turkish- we could have been in Marmaris or Bodrum.
We were booked into The Colony Hotel for two nights, a short walk from the harbour and castle, with the most ...
... setting. I had dinner here at night. The sound of the water is really peaceful with the backdrop of a castle and fishing ships in the harbor. It is one very cool place. I was hoping to stay in the Kyrenia dorms, but they were full. It was located just behind the harbor in a back alley, but there was another place nearby for cheaper. It is very hard to find parking near the harbor, but I parked in the castle parking lot, which is just around the bend from the harbor. ...
... behind and they need to work to cover their expenses like we do, but No Thank you…..I am not visiting another time! There are other more interesting and more beautiful places to see in the south…. thank God! And this is what I intend to do as from tomorrow. Follow my entries and I promise I will show you some very interesting spots on the island.
