More about Queens Bay Hotel
Good location- Good value
Holiday 23 Feb- 1 Mar. Couldn't be better.
The Queens Bay is an excellent family run hotel offering more for your money than many higher graded hotels. The location could not be bettered, sited on its own mini headland with small beach. If you like sunsets this is the place for you. The main Paphos to Coral Bay bus route is 150 yards away so it is most convenient for town or other sites such as Tombs of Kings. Fixed fare 80c (£1.) The setting is quiet, being away from the main road and no nearby properties. For details of hotel and photos see web ----------
I booked my trip last minute and although it was the cheapest on offer it was superior to many more expensive packages as confirmed by chatting to others on trips out and at the airport.
This was my second stay at QBH and it was just as high quality as before.I took family this time to celebrate a special birthday.The rooms were clean and comfortable the food excellent and varied and the staff particularly friendly helpful and courteous as before.I could not fault the hotel and my family were equally impressed.I have stayed at 3 other hotels in Paphos(Athena Beach,Avanti,and Porto Paphos)but the Queens Bay beats them all hands down.The bar is great,service fast and friendly,and the lounge/bar area has loads of room and atmosphere and is popular with a few locals as well as residents.The Folklore evening also the Fakir evening are especially entertaining.
You can get a bus every few minutes to Paphos or Coral Bay for 70cents.
A good hire car company is Pentaras Rentals new Toyota Rav4 jeep for £CY120 a week.I've used this company 3 times before.Their cars/service are excellent .No rip offs,problems,or added extras.Don't miss a trip to the Akamas or doing mild wheelies on Ladies Mile Beach near Akrotiri.You can also take your car to the crossing point at Ledra Palace Nicosia(car park £1Cy)then after walking across the border(green line) take a dolmus taxi to Kyrenia for £1Cy per person.You have to take your passport.The Turks give you a free separate visa to cover you for the day in the North.
Great trips and a great welcoming hotel to come back to-happy hour cocktails for £1Cy-and a superb dinner.
If you have a huge appetite try a moussaka at lunchtime!
I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel and look forward keenly to yet another visit.
Lousy weather - wonderful Hotel
Booked a break to this hotel in Cyprus. Location is scenically very nice indeed, peacefully located adjacent to a small cove in a very quiet backwater some 20 minutes drive north from Paphos - but it's a bit out on its' own so you have to catch the (very frequent and cheap) bus service or hire a car to get away from the hotel. Not that you will really want to as everything that you need is here. We requested, in advance, adjoining rooms high up (we had our 16 year old son with us) - hotel provided just that. Staff really helpful. Dinner was excellent, though breakfast was a bit limited on the hot selection - bacon and griddled eggs took it in turns with some strange sausages and scrambled egg on alternate days. Beans and a selection of meats and cheeses were always available, together with coffee machines with minds of their own!
There is an excellent gift and essentials shop on site - not only is the owner friendly but the prices are as competitive as you will find (which is unusual for a shop in an hotel lobby in my book). Rooms were very comfortable; although the bathroom was a little on the small side, the space had been used to provide extra space in the room itself. Worth paying extra for the sea view, particularly on the lower floors as rooms at the back stare straight into trees a couple of feet away from the balcony. Be wary of rooms that face onto the Atrium in winter - entertainment is held in the ground floor lounge and can be loud!
A most enjoyable stay, despite the weather being very cold for Cyprus at this time of year (one day it was 6c!). How anyone could complain about this hotel defeats me as the quality was 4* and the staff are absolutely brilliant.
And so much better than the serial ranks of other hotels being built like a traffic jam in the area between Paphos and the Airport - if there's a building site this week, chances are it'll be a hotel soon.
Incidentally, watch out for the timeshare touts in Paphos if you visit - they're a real pain, entirely plausible (would you like to visit our "hotel"? You've won a star prize!!, etc etc) and they "hunt" in and around the car park at Pahos Harbour. Don't be afraid of being rude to these pests to get them off your back quickly as being polite doesn't work.
My wife and I spent a week at the hotel on half board basis in mid-February 2006. The hotel is nearer Coral Bay than Paphos but a 20-minute bus service takes you to either Coral Bay or Paphos for the standard 80cent fare. The hotel was thankfully free from small children and is the ideal setting for us "mature types". The rooms were spotless and extremely comfortable. The food was excellent with plenty of choice for all tastes. The breakfasts were are classed as "continental" but there was fruit and yoghurt, cereal, scrambled eggs or fried eggs, boiled eggs, sausages or bacon, then cheeses and cold meat with a range of home made breads. All in all this is a great hotel staffed with extremely friendly staff. We will be returning.
cant wait to return
we booked a last minute holiday at this hotel and were more than pleased with it. The standard of cleanliness was very good with towels and sheets changed every day. The staff were marvellous, nothing too much trouble. We upgraded to a seaview room which was worth every penny, the sunsets were spectactular. It was so peaceful, no loud music and hardly any children which suited us oldies. How anyone could moan about the food i dont know there was 11 different soups during our 2 week stay and for once i could chew the meat, and at last not chips, chips chips every day but lovely roast, boiled and even mash potatoes, fresh veg too. I must have put pounds on eating all that food! The flask of iced water each day was appreciated too. All in all a memorable holiday and well be back
This was an anniversary present for my parents in law. The hotel was wonderful, food out of this world, rooms and hotel clean and tidy. Little touches such as fresh water in rooms were appreciated and never forgotten. Most definitely will have a return visit from not only my parents in law but the rest of the family as well. Superb and highly recommended
Cannot speak highly enough of this hotel and staff !!
Returned home yesterday and can only reiterate what others have said about this excellent hotel. I was disappointed in Paphos itself, but this hotel more than made up for that. The room was clean, comfortable, the staff were absolutely excellent - friendly, efficient, but not in your face so to speak! Buffet meals were superb. Activities were amusing. At this time of year there were many older couples who seemed very happy and at ease with each other and their surroundings. Didn't hear a sharp word in the whole week. Sea view rooms excellent - lovely view over the swimming pool, palm trees and rocks and lovely blue sea. Buses were very frequent to both Paphos and Coral Bay. Try the Statos wine - recommended to us and very nice indeed. We took in archery, boules, zavinia making, table tennis and short mat bowles. Everybody enjoyed themselves. Thank you very much for making our holiday what it was.
"Queens Bay Hotel"
Wow, everything about the Hotel was good, from the service to the clean room and the views. No complaints.
We hired a car for the 5 days we were there, not cheap, however worth every cent for the convenience to go where we wanted to go when we wanted to go and the bonus is that they drive on the correct side of the road??
Awsom views from the Hotel. Lovely swimming pool and plenty of activities to keep you interested. Loads to see around Paphos and surrounds. Fabulous Food, what more can I say.

RE: queens bay hotel in paphos
Griff, The hotel has a great reputation and it has it's own web site which i have attached, go to Bar St in Kato Pathos it is full of bars and restaurants, there is a Mexican restaurant which is excellent and a restaurant on the edge of Bar Street going towards the Aloe Hotel called Flambe' the chefs are all girls from the old eastern block countries, but they cook superbly (and look good to)at your table, so you can adjust things like garlic etc, there are boat trips from the harbour one is a deluxe trip, in other words no kids, all the drink and food is in the price, the Splash bar on the main road going away from the harbour but still on the coast road is great for having a beer and a snack, and they have a pool that you can use, one of the bar people is an Asian lad called Rosie, yeah your probably right with the name, but a good laugh, and good music....Have a great time we are going in September
