Terrific hotel, nice rooms, stupendous buffet. They even had honey comb. Very comfortable bed, and a nice sunny bay window with 2 chairs for relaxing. The patio bar on the 9th floor was too windy and/or sunny, but the bar/patio on street level was very nice to sit in.
supposedly no internet in the rooms, but once I got connected in the lobby I was able to use it in my room.
Near the seafront and lots of restaurants and ferries.

... was a great atmosphere, and the squad in the stands (Jill with her tonsillitis, Carly, Casey and Johno on her crutches) all waved and said hello before taking up their usual vocal roles to spur on the girls. I say they all took up their vocal roles, Jill was obviously very quiet, so her and Carly made sure they told Johno what to shout and she duly obliged.
We had a few chances in the first half, mainly passes to the Turkish keeper. Our player of the half was Alex as she seemed ...
