We didn't stay at this hotel but came to the bar for their fabulous cocktails! The music was great, the bar itself is lovely with comfy seating areas and the service was spot on. We had the same waiter each night (sorry can't remember his name!) and he knew what we liked and made suggestions if something we wanted wasn't... More

The hotel Axos is located on the main road through the town but was never busy and easy to cross. The hotel is a low rise building on 2 floors with a lift to the upper floor. The rooms were... More

This review is for the Axos Bar NOT the hotel so please bear that in mind. We tried the bar on our first night as the music was good and varied and to our taste and the setting was quite chilled. In fact we enjoyed it that we visited most nights and as mentioned the two brothers that run it... More

Lovely hotel, on main street but we had a quiet room at the rear of the building. Room was clean and of a good standard. The pool area was kept well and plenty of sun beds. The bar was good and you always got a friendly welcome. We didn't eat at the hotel as we only booked the room. The... More

We stayed for two nights. We knew before that we won't have wifi in our room. But even in the public places and especially at the bar there were really bad wifi. Although they announced that there will be wifi in these spots. The breakfast was ok but not that good. I wouldn't recommend it.
