This hotel is well established & is one of the hotels recommended by the Xpat community for a day visit for spa & food. For lunch we had sweet chilli seafood bisque, cheese piede (a cheese stuffed elepticle bread) & some of their exceptionally scrummy Cyprus chips. Everything was spot on. Comfy seats around an outside pool.
The pool was on level 4 with a restaurant attached & when some serious black clouds approached some electric windows were turned on & closed off the exposed 3 sides of the pool area thus protecting us from the prevailing wind & later a little rain. Everyone was helped to move inside when the time came. The spa & fitness centre were down a half level & comprised: steam room, sauna, Hot Springs hot tub & a relaxing area with half a dozen couches around a low table with hot tea & fruit water. The staff were most amenable. It was not too dark as there was a window at one end where light entered from the reception area & the fitness centre. Use of which was included in our day entry price if 50tl.
Praise to the friendly & thoughtful attendant on duty who’s actions deflected the behaviour of a verbose guest.
Would highly recommend The Colony. We went twice during our stay in Kyrenia. They make one of the best hot chocolates I have ever had. Not tarted up in any way. Just a good simply tasty glass of hot chocolate

Just returned from Northetn Cyprus after spending a week touring the ancient sites. Hotel Arkin Colony is perfectly positioned for access to the old castle and the harbour which comes alive at night. The hotel is exceptionally clean, our room was spacious and every detail thought of in the lovely marble bathroom with bath robes and toiletries and the mini bar was well stocked and reasonably priced. The breakfasts were plentiful and the waiting staff always on hand and friendly. The rooftop swimming pool was such an added bonus and welcome as the weather for October was great and in the high 20’s. The bar/lobby is beautiful with an exquisite vaulted ceiling and comfortable seating arrangements. Bar prices were very reasonable and just right for a nightcap after returning to hotel after a night out. I would certainly recommend this hotel and would certainly stay here again if we return to Northern Cypress which is a beautiful place to visit.
Well done Arkin Colony management and staff !

Very nice hotel. Kept very clean. The staff are friendly and polite. Food at breakfast was very good, lot of variety. The evening menu was ok nothing exciting but eatable. There are plenty of good restaurants near the hotel. The best meals we had were at lunchtime up on the 4th floor where the swimming pool is located. The chef is brilliant. Would definitely put it on my list to visit again.

Room tip: Just ask for the quieter side of the hotel

My wife and I stayed for a week in this hotel as a base used by a UK travel company.
The location is excellent being on the edge of the shopping area and with easy walking distance of the picturesque harbour and magnificent castle.
All public rooms are very well appointed. There is an attractive lounge, bar and casino at ground level. There is a lovely open air swimming pool together with bar and restaurant on the 4th floor with views over Kyrenia.
There is a very large choice of food at breakfast and evening buffet (ground floor) or in the 4th floor restaurant which specialises in fish.
The modern en suite bedrooms are a good size with all facilities including safe and a gorgeous walk in shower with seat.
Taxi and Dolmus services are very close.

Upon arrival on 9th September the reception looked very nice, the man in reception was polite but when I asked for a room not overlooking a building site he went quiet. We were shown to the room which was very nicely appointed however when I looked out of the window the only view was that of a building site. I immediatly asked for another room unfortunatly we had to wait until the next day to move wasting half a day. Our new room without a building site view was again very nice. Food wisr the breakfast buffet was extensive and generally very nice, the evening buffet not so it was extensive but not local dishes there were boiled beef and carrots, rather tough chicken, chinese food none of which was very nice. The other hotel option is a fish restaurant on the roof which closes if they have a function on. The lunch time food on offer here is the best the hotel offers it is a good menu that is very cheap. The staff at the hotel are friendly enough although sadly their English is not very good (I shouldn't complain too much as I don't. Know a word of Turkish). The pool on the roof is nice not to crowded and a plentiful suply of clean towels. The area surrounding the hotel is a bit grotty several garages and a few downmarked restaurants that said it's only a short walk to the pretty harbour and some nice restaurants.

Room tip: As for non building site view and lower floor to avoid noise when function room is being used on roof.
