Passed it's prime
The bathroom edging was all water damaged and lifting. The door handle to my daughter's room fell off on the last day. The whole room has linoleum flooring with no carpet at all. We found also it difficult to get service at breakfast. Other than this, the staff were good and the hotel itself (amenities and restaurant / bar were good). The breakfast buffet was great with a large variety of food on offer.

Awesome Time
I had a lovely time at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had great messages from the Spa. Although it was a bit cold to swim, chilling by the pool soaking up the sun with a cocktail in hand was one of the best highlights! I will definitely go back on a warmer day, at least to try out the pool! I would recommend the President Hotel to anyone!

President Hotel Staff
Facilities and Room was great. Staff at reception was an issue, checked in at 4:30am and waited a good 30mins to be checked in after clerk wanting me to pay extra. Had a slight arguement and eventually got what I wanted. Clerk was rude and did not want to listen to reason! The last thing i wanted at that time of the morning. Then key card did not work at the room, and I had to go back to reception to get it rectified. Also called to reception at 10:30 on that same morning to find out when check-out was and they told me 11am on the same day that i checked in on. Decided to leave and not have the breakfast the room came with. All in all, i spent 5hrs in the hotel. Complete waste of my money!! Will not be going back.
