I rarely write a negative review but this one deserves it. I'll start with the pluses, the hotel is reasonably well located, the bed was comfortable, and the room was clean. The minuses is a much longer list. The hotel itself is a dowager. It was probably nicer 20 or 30 years ago. Most of the rooms do not have...

Good location, clean but old hotel. Most of the rooms do not offer sea view. Decent breakfast (buffet style), average lunch (buffet style). Good restaurants in the neighbourhood. Ease of access to public transport.

We have just returned from a three week stay at The Diplomat we found the hotel clean comfortable but rather dated it would benefit from a complete refurbish, but goodness knows how this could be achieved as the Hotel is open all year long. Apart from that we found the Diplomat a pleasure to stay in, all the staff courteous...
