Historical Traveller Reviews of Annabelle Hotel

Fantastic service!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was concerned by some of the reviews below that suggested the hotel was a little delapidated but was delighted to find that this was not the case on the whole, indeed while we were there some (non-disruptive) refurbishment was underway. It appears the some rooms have been recently refitted whilst others are a little dated - avoid the Aphrodite wing, it is in need of some updating.

The best things about the hotel were:
The Food - consistantly absolutely fantastic. I would happily pay more than the half board supplement for the dinners in london. The afternoon tea in particular should not be missed!
The service - the staff simply couldn't do enough and made a real effort to remember your name and room number etc.
The ambiance - this hotel has the quiet sophistication of an expensive hotel but is in no way stuffy - perfect.

The worst thing about this hotel was:
The hidden extras - it was a little irritating that the pay per view movies were nearly GBP£10 and there was only one english channel on the advertised 'sky' tv in the rooms. There is a surcharge for use of the jacuzzi which seemed odd and the drinks are pretty expensive.

We had a great time - I'm in my early twenties and we were by far the youngest guests as most guests at this time of year were retired couples - some staying for over a month. But it does mean guaranteed peace and quiet. Off season this is not the hotel for anyone looking for a lively break or people with children but for a spot of winter sun, pampering and quiet relaxation I would highly reccomend it.

Annabelle v Anassa

Looking for a 7 day break not too far we thought of Cyprus.We had been to Northern Cyprus a couple of times some 15 years ago but expected considerably more sophistication on the Greek side.We chose the Annabelle over The Anassa because we thought it would be more central and local restaurants would be more accessible.
We had one of their 6 private pool suites.This was OK but the private pool was so cold as to be unusable and these top of the range suites are near to the staff walkways and kitchens so can be very noisy.
It became apparent that having one of the 6 top suites in the hotel carried no importance elsewhere in the hotel.Service was patchy throughout and in the hotel's top restaurant one of the waiters was unforgiveably rude.
The choice of dining was limited for such a large hotel and on some nights the full package approach of trying to herd residents in to one restaurant only was apparent.
Paphos seems to be very 'English pub' or Fast Food with few fine dining opportunities.The hotel did book us in to one very good restaurant (Pavarottis)but clearly being guests of supposedly the best hotel in town staying in their best suite counted for nothing as we had the very worst table in the full restaurant.
This hotel may be above average at basic room level but falls woefully short of the standards expected at suite price level.

Much better than I expected

from UK0AP
I booked this hotel only a few weeks ago, having heard only good things about it. Once I had booked, I looked it up on tripadvisor and was extremely worried. We had been given a good deal by Zenna Holidays, which included half board for the price of B&B and 3 days free car hire. I had been told (not by Zenna holidays) that there were some refurbised rooms and I emailed the hotel direct to ask if we could be given once of these rooms. I was very pleased with our room (219), it was a side sea view room, but otherwise quite basic. Having said that everything worked well, the hair dryer was in just the right place to see yourself easily in the mirror (not universal in all hotels) and there were plugs close to the mirrors if you wanted to use your own hot brush etc. The room and bed linen were spotless, yes, the bath towels were sometimes frayed, but they were changed twice daily, the turn down service was good and all the staff were very helpful and pleasant. The bed was very comfortable. The heated pool was very clean and I am very fussy, so I would not have used it if it wasn't and the temperature was perfect. I can understand some of the comments about the hotel being in need of refurbishment, but, it had a "soul", the other guests, by and large, were late middle aged or young old aged, and the tattoo/piercing factor was very low! The hotel had the air of a good 1950's/1960's Torquay hotel, the staff made the hotel. The fact it is owned by a family, not some faceless organisation was, to me, a good thing. I suppose, if I had paid a vast sum of money for my holiday I might have been cross about some things, but if I wanted perfection I could have stayed at the Annassa, also owned by the same family, at great expense. However, I would not have been able to stroll to the harbour or visit the Mosaics so easily, I would have been out on a limb in a world of perfection. I would not recommend the hotel for families, I think it is most suitable for couples who want to relax and enjoy good food. On the subject of food, it was not Michelin starred, but it was always possible to get an enjoyable meal and I am missing the whole experience already. Do not be put off the hotel by the other reviews, had I read about the hotel before I booked I would not have gone and I would have missed a very relaxing week in Cyprus.

Well past it!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We booked a stay at the hotel for 10 days with my family, daughter 6 and son 6 months. We had a family studio booked and arrived to find that it was a single room on split level, clean but tired and sub-terrainian, there was no light to speak of, and to top it off they seemed not to believe in overhead lighting. So the following day we upgraded to a suite. What a mistake this was! It had great views and lots of space but was just as tired. The lamps (again no overhead lighting) were constantly fusing, despite being repeatedly fixed. The toilet broke and we were told that it couldn't be fixed for two days because the maintance man was off. Even when it had been fixed, still did not work properly. It also smelled of sewage. The Jacuzzi’s controls didn’t work, the jets only worked on a separate switch, which was hard to reach when you were in the bath! The pool was not clean and the grout between the tiles in the pool had mould growing on it on the bottom of the pool. The problems were endless, but suffice to say it is not a five star hotel, the whole hotel seems to living off its reputation, a reputation that might have been deserved 20 years ago, but now those 20 years are very much apparent.
The only five star quality this hotel had was its staff, who were fantastic, helpful and courteous. I can recommend the babysitting service. Any member of staff we spoke to know about all the problems with the hotel and seemed embarrassed by it but obviously it was beyond their control.
To surmise to expensive for what it is.

Past it

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed for 7 nights with my family from 22 October in 2 deluxe rooms. Joke..frayed towels, holes in the bed linen, cane furniture from the 70s, dirty walls and very tired corridors with heavily worn carpets. My son almost got electrocuted from a loose wire in a hairdryer. I think the family that own this hotel are just trying to hold on to their money for as long as possible before having to spend it on a refurbishment of the hotel! Don't know how so many travel companies can rate this property as 5 star...maybe they haven't visited it in the last 10 years.

Very tired

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from The Annabelle after staying there three times before and was very disappointed. The hotel needs completely refurbing and is very tired. The first time I stayed in the hotel was in 1991 and I dont think anything has changed not even the bedding1 The place should not be given a 5star rating until they upgrade everything and I mean everything!

Been to Better

from A TripAdvisor Member
We went to The Annabelle for 10 days and all in all we have come away disappointed. This is certainly one of the weaker 5 star hotels we have stayed in. The hotel itself is approx 10+ years old and as such we found that it could do with a bit of an update. We had to change rooms because the walls were thin and we could here the occupants in the next room. They did change us over no problem, but you dont expect a 5 star hotel to have walls as thin as a travel Lodge! Not impressed. The staff were ok but nothing wonderful that I had expected, little things like serving morning coffee in a pot without the lid on, asking the maid for a lightbulb as the one in one of the bedside lights went and she didnt do anything. Little things, do make a difference and overall we were disappointed. The Medditrean restaurant on the front was wonderful and their BBQ evening was truly excellant on the tastebuds.

We will not be making a return trip to the Annabelle, and we wont be recommnending it to our friends or family.

Very disappointing experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was encouraged by the comments I had read from previous guests on this site and booked an 8 day break with my wife and 18 month old son in a garden studio at a nightly cost of £340/ $600 however we were obliged to check out and move hotel after only one night.
This decision incurred a not insignificant 3 night cancellation penalty but this did not disuade us to get away from the hotel

The hotel is very dated and while its website evidences many awards all seem to date from more than 5 years retrospect the first warning sign!

The room was frankly not upto scratch or standard: pervasive smell of tobacco, niocotine stained walls and a/c controls, broken ac vents, rust stained bath surround, smell of sewage in the garden outside, sloppy decoration with paint drips and overpainiting on chrome room furniture
And the icing on the cake- plastic covered pillow protectors which crackled in your ear every time you moved!Not to mention the noise from the town nearby

OK you might say perhaps we are too particular or have unrealistic standards but the reality is my wife hates to complain so it had to be bad!!

We moved a short distance to a newish 5 star hotel- the Eliseum- who were very diplomatic but were clearly not surprised by our decision as it seems we were not the first short notice guest they had\received looking for a room for similar reasons

Clean fresh rooms decorated and furnished to a high standard at 60% of the cost of our room at the Annabelle

She may have been pretty once but she is now more than showing her age and suggesting the hotel is 5 star is stretching the benchmark of current and newer hotels in that category

Annabelle return

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I returned to the Annabelle for an 11 night stay in June, having been there twice previously. Our flight from Birmingham was delayed so it was after 11 pm when we arrived at the hotel.
After a refreshing drink while we registered we were immediately taken to our room which overlooked both the pool and sea.
The Annabelle is a hotel of quiet sophistication. The staff are extremely efficient and friendly and we could not find anything to fault it.
We have been to Cyprus many times since 1989, staying at a different hotel but the Annabelle is a class above others.
The rooms, restaurants and facilities are excellent. My wife describes it as "understated elegance."
We are returning next June.

Excellent hotel

from Lew1
We have just come back from 1 week at this hotel and it was excellent. The rooms were very spacious (we booked the cheapest) and well equipt.

You recieve cold towels on arrival and a complimentary drink.

The bathroom has slippers and robes, nail files etc and a great shower.

The pool is very large but quite slippery so watch out. There is a smaller pool with a waterfall and swim up bar but I did not go into that one as it did not look all that clean.

We did not eat at the restaurant although we met people who did and they said it was lovely. We took a walk along the strip of shops and restaurants and found one called 'The Moorings'. The food was excellent, staff great and great prices too. We went back every night of our stay.

Outside the hotel there are quite a few shops and restaurants and behind these is 'Bar Street'. Not many people knew about that because they had not walked down the side roads and found it. If you want a lively night out go there as there are so many places to choose from you will not get bored.

We did not see one cloud all week. It was between 30 - 35 deg everyday which was lovely.

The staff at he hotel were very friendly and polite. The maids make up your room every morning and then come back at night to make up the bed and re-tidy the room!

This hotel is pure luxury. We found the best deal by far at Travelbargains, they were nearly £1,000 cheaper than anywhere alse we looked.

The only bad point was there was not a real beach here. You can get a bus into Coral Bay, takes about 20mins and costs about 50p. They have a nice Sandy Beach but the pool at the hotel was fine for us.

We went Jet Ski-ing which was great fun and costs £25 Cyprus pounds for 25mins. Well worth the money so make sure you try it while you are there.

Top Local Tips for Paphos

Mosaics Well worth a trip to see the Mosaics in Kato Pafos. But take a hat, sunglasses and some water - there is no shelter and it gets very hot. The area is mainly rock which intensifies the sun. But don't be put off the mosaics are beautiful and extensive and they are finding and uncovering more all the time. The light house is being done up and should be open soon.

Using Local Teraqnsport All buses anywhere within Pathos region only cost 80cents per trip

wax work museum Dont go to this, it is at the end of the harbour and it is £4 cypriot to enter and it is a small roomwith all sorts crammed in, we went in because they lure you at the time Shrek 3 had just been realised and they had Shrek & donkey outside, but that I can honestly say was the end of the interest. There are much more interesting and much better value fir money sights to see so i would recommend avoiding this museum....
