Reviewed 21 September 2008

Lovely located in the harbour of a nice city, so what could go wrong?
Yes, everything!
Very expensive, but an almost empty breakfast buffet, no towels for the (overcrowded) swimmingpool, no entrance to the water to swim, no sorry after complaints.
So al in all not a place to go to, unless you're a BMW or Audi lover: you can see more exclusive models here than at the dealer...

This hotel is a good example that spending a lot of money does not create a good place to stay. Shortly: expensive, cold, silly decorated, bad surrounding, NOT a 5 star hotel

LOCATION: Great. Not in the heart of the city, but pleasantly on the outskirts, on the marina and 5 minute walk to the beach and heart of the town.

BED/SHEETS/PILLOW: Very comfortable bed. Linens & pillows are fine.

LIGHTING: Great in the bathroom, a little dark in the bedroom.

BATHROOM/SHOWER: Bathroom is the highlight here; really different and stylish. Too bad the rest of the hotel isn’t in the same style.

TOILETRIES: Very good.

CLEANLINESS: Bedroom and bathroom are spotless.

A/C: Present but didn’t use.

CLOSET SPACE: Tons of space for 2

STYLE OF ROOM: This is the issue here. Everything is really nice and the owner clearly spent a lot of money on décor. The problem is that I think I am with the majority of discriminating hotel guests that prefer not to have a nautical theme. It’s like staying at one of those nice hotels in Vegas with a stupid theme that ruins the experience. If you like this theme, you may really like this place. The backboard of the bed is a boat steering wheel. It shows that money can’t buy taste.

SOUND: The room was exceptionally quiet.

FOOD: One of the best breakfast buffets we have had in our 4 months of traveling.

TV/INTERNET: Weak wireless signal in room and fast corded internet for $2US/hr or $10 for 24 hour period. TV has satellite and a few English channels

SERVICE: Fine.

COMMON AREA: Very nice and spacious. The spa/pool is exceptional although both the pool and the spa where too cold. There is a nice steam room (Turkish bath) and sauna. There is a masseuse on staff that has prices without the duration of massage. I asked her how long the massage is for and she said sometimes 25 minutes, it could be 50 minutes, just depends on your body.

TIPS: I checked out every hotel in the area. This is by far the nicest and most luxurious of them all. However it doesn’t justify $140 Euros/night, double the price of the others unless you just want the nicest room in town and don’t care about the price/value. We wanted to stay at San Rocco (20 mins) away that was charming, beautiful and everything I would want in a hotel (without seeing the rooms). I would only stay here if you want the best and San Rocco is booked.

New hotel in Novigrad - bit too flash, trying a bit too hard in my mind, but you can't argue that the rooms are large, the bathrooms spot on, the quality of the finish tremendous and the location (about 200 yards from the main harbour) is good.

Although the hotel only has approx 40 rooms it seemed very large - we weren't sure whether it was because we were off season but at times it felt cavernous and lacked atmosphere.

Staff were friendly - happy to sort out a reservation at a local restaurant and there when you wanted them, not when you didn't.
