Historical Traveller Reviews of Queen's Bay Hotel
Very Relaxingfrom chassa
We have just returned from the Queens bay hotel and I have to say we had a fantastic time everything was just spot on. We paid £21 to up grade to a sea view room and it was worth every penny for the sunsets alone.Food in the hotel had great variety and never failed to impress, and the local wine list was great and had some excelent guidance from Leo and George who are both friendly and efficient.The games programme was very enjoyable and run by Khaled who has a wicked sense of humour.The entertainment in the evenings was varied and has to appeal to a wide variety of people so it could be a bit bland.The rooms were kept very clean and tidy. The only down side of the hotel is it's location, it's a bit isolated but only 80c on the bus to downtown Paphos or £4.80 in a taxi I would thoroughly recommend a holiday to the Queens bay hotel htey make you feel like one of the family.

Paphos in Decemberfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The room smelled a bit smokey so we paid a small amount extra and got the best room in the Hotel with a super seaview and sun from morning till night and it was worth every penny.There was plenty going on in the Hotel and it was the first time in Cyprus that we didn't book a car. It was easy to get to Paphos on a Bus.
The Hotel beach was only small but the sea was lovely and still warm in December when it was snowing at home. If you don't like the sea then the indoor pool was OK. The gardens were spacious and you could always find a quiet spot.
We would have liked a fridge in the room and also a lesson on how to use the ice cream scoop!
I am not saying which room we had because it won't be long before we are back!

Thanks a great timefrom A TripAdvisor Member
an adequate 3* with pleasant stafffrom philipellis
The rooms are small, though clean, and the tiny balconies are the smallest I've ever seen in any hotel anywhere.
The breakfast and evening meal buffets were pretty good, although by day 4 or 5 of our 1 week stay we were getting a little bored with both.
The hotel is totally isolated, and there are no pubs, bars or restaurants within an easy walk. The pool is basic but just about OK, and the "beach" can only host a dozen people in comfort!!
The hotel is clean, and the staff helpful, polite and attentive. It is an adequate 3*, which is all it claims to be.
On our return to the UK, we took action against our travel agent for hosting us at the Queen's Bay instead of one of the true 4* hotels we were originally promised, and we won our case in full in October.
We Loved Itfrom A TripAdvisor Member
overall a good holidayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel itself is quite good. All staff friendly. Rooms are basic, but generally clean. We moved rooms early on as we were allocated a room above the main entrance- very noisy. Upgaraded to a sea view which was worth doing. Found out that if you do it there it costs half the price of upgrading when you book. Everything else you had to pay for, i.e, fridge was £2 a day, safety deposit box was £15 for the 2 weeks. Not things that you would have to pay extra for in a 4*. Entertainment was mainly live music at 8pm. Was ok, but mainly appealed to the older guests. We would recommend bar street as mentioned in other reports.
They have one main pool and an indoor ( which is not heated). Both clean and pleasant. The sun bed situation was quite amuzing. The regular guests were very protective over their spots. They sit in the same place every year, and god forbid if you take their spot by mistake. Need to get out early if you want a lounger as people reserve them- which the hotel does try to prevent.
Overall, we would certainly go back to Paphos, but not to this hotel.
Paridise in Paphosfrom A TripAdvisor Member
They have a entertainer who organisers daily events for all ages from archery to French boules also water basket ball coffee making and wine tasting
There are 2 swiming pools one indoor and a big outdoor pool with excellent sunbed facilities if the beach is your thing there is a tiny inlet 2mins walk from the hotel and is excellent for snorkling there is a gymnasium and pool and snooker tables but for those people who like to watch football I would recommend other bars
The food is an absolute cullenry delight and made up of hot and cold buffet with soups and deserts that are outstanding they also have a carvery 3 nigts per week the staff in the hotel are very attentative and accomadating and are always welcoming you with a smile and a chat.
Entertainment of a night is varied and relaxed. I would recomend this hotel to anyone to either use as a base to explore the island or just to put up your feet and relax
I actually invested in a 4 wheel drive while I was there and would recomend you to look on the tomb of the kings road to pick up the best bargain
All I can end with is carry on the Queensbay Hotel another great holiday oh by the way I'm going back in October
Wonderful holidayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The buffet style restaurant was very well manned by the helpful waiters. But be warned men must wear long trousers!! (be it jeans, trousers or track suit bottoms) but not 3/4 length. It took my partner 4 hours of walking round Paphos centre before he was able to find a shop which sold long trousers. He then luckily found good old Next where he purchased a pair of Jeans.
We went half board and a few days ate lunch in the hotel instead of dinner so that we could go into Paphos centre and try out the many different Restaurants. For a really good steak try the Diane Steak House situated by the Aquarium (one of the best steaks I have ever eatten). The Players Lounge Bar made a great local with all the sport, friendly staff and cheap beer (just up from McDonalds). Bar Street is where we spent each night with many bars and clubs and you don't get ripped off!!
All in all lovely holiday, brill weather but if we went back would stay nearer the resort centre to cut down on taxi fares nothing against Queens Bay Hotel as it was a lovely hotel, clean with friendly staff.
Top Local Tips for Paphos
Latchi Visit Latchi on the west of the island. A good day out.
Cyprus in winter Paphos should be considered for a winter break as the weather is great. If you have the ability to stay for the whole winter as many retired people do then you will have good weather for the majority of your stay.
Kourion Ampitheatre Visit the Ampitheatre (Kourion) on the road to Limassol, a really interesting place to go for £1 each!!
