we have just returned from this gem of a hotel we were half board the food was great quality and very well cooked nice selection and fantastic staff. The rooms are spotless and well looked after by very friendly housekeeping staff The hotel is just across from the beach most of the main attractions are within walking distance along the lovely promende Next visit I would pay a bit extra for a sea view room we were at the side but could still see the sea and beach asked night porter for a taxi to airport at 4.30am it was outside by the time we went out fantastic service .dont bother with tranfer buses as taxi's are so easy to get
We have just returned from a 4 night stay here after spending a week all inclusive in Playa Blanca. ..We loved the diversity of this hotel...excellent position and beautifully maintained and managed. I had requested a quiet room and they allocated a lovely room on the 5th floor towards the back. My biggest praise of the stay goes to Vincent who is a real pleasure to watch whilst at breakfast. He does the work of at least SIX staff ...and so professional and fast. He slips any unwanted packs of sugar/jams etc surreptitiously into his waistcoat pocket and returns to the buffet whilst passing. The Management must be thrilled to have such an employee. The hotel is immaculate and we enjoyed the choice at breakfast ...wi-fi was brilliant...staff were friendly....No complaints...only praise.
My wife and I have holidayed in Lanzarote before, but only at the resort of Puerto del Carmen. What a great contrast Arrecife was - a genuine Spanish town where locals live and work. The Lancelot is in a superb location. We asked for a top floor, sea view room and that is what we got. Wonderful panoramic views over the beach. The room was clean, bright and spacious, as was the bed! Very friendly and helpful staff, good variety of food at the buffet breakfast. The hotel is very handy for the (cheap) buses. Recommend a trip up the coast to Arrieta where we spent ages watching the surfers. As we had booked for just B&B, we ate out every night, almost exclusively at the Cerveceria Gambrinus , just 50 metres on the right along from the hotel where the fish soup is divine, the service very friendly and a favourite eating place for locals. Only tiny niggle was that the air/con was ineffective and, yes, it was needed even on January nights! All in all, a great restorative winter break. We'll be back!
Location alone is worth a 5 star, it’s across the road from the beach. We booked this last minute 4 night jan trip for quite cheap and wanted to stay in a different area than last time (we stayed in Teguise) so chose this hotel due to its location. The hotel itself was ok, clean rooms, ok breakfast but we did pay an extra 60 euros for a sea view when we arrived. Also, if you want to use their mini fridge it’s 5 euros, which is a bit of joke really. Overall if you are looking for a cheap stay and good location to everything in Arrecife , this hotel ticks all the boxes and the service is good too, friendly staff.
Just stayed here for a week with full board. Really nice clean hotel in a superb location. We had a room with the sea view, well worth the extra charge. The food was nice , the only complaint I have is that the food was only lukewarm, especially the dinner in the evening. Lovely presentation BUT lukewarm, would not take full board again. We will definitely come back.
My wife and I were both recovering from the 'flu and just needed a few days sunshine. I chose the Lancelot on the basis of its location and good reviews. Our sea view room was worth the extra few pounds as we spent most of the time on the balcony overlooking the beach. There are some reasonable restaurants nearby, although mainly pizza and pasta. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. The only minor grumble was that English language TV stations were only Russia Today and China Global. BBC World would have been nice!
room safes had to be rented......no car paring on site, private car park costing 8 euros a day minimum......fridge in room had to be rented....cheapest rooms allocated to expedia customers.....apart from these comments it is a good well run hotel ......excellent breakfast ....right on the beach....excellent cleaning...very good reception staff.....very handy for public transport to the whole islan
We stayed for a week in December 2017, having chosen to holiday in Arrecife to avoid the tourist hotspots. The hotel is located on the seafront, across the street from the beach - a fifteen minute taxi ride from the airport. The reception area is bright and airy - the check-in process was efficient and fast. We booked a sea-view room and were lucky to find ourselves at the front of the hotel on the fifth floor. The room was a good size, recently renovated, very clean and well presented. Improvement works are ongoing - new balcony furniture was delivered during our stay. There were a few minor 'rough edges' from the renovation work in the room, but generally the hotel have done a very good job. Everything in the room worked well. Housekeeping is very good - bedding and towels were clean and fresh. The balcony was in full sun all day from approximately 10am (in the shadow of the awful Gran Hotel building before then). There is some slight traffic noise now and then, but never enough to disturb sleep. We went 'bed and breakfast' and have to say that the breakfast was a minor disappointment. There is a good choice but the quality of some of the food offered is poor (e.g. the yoghurt pots). We didn't try the hot food, so cannot comment on that. The coffee from a hot drinks machine is fairly good, but as there is only one machine there is a near constant queue to use it - not helped by the reluctance of tea-drinkers to use the adjacent hot water machine. If (when) the sole hot drinks machine breaks down, the breakfast arrangements will be in disarray - the hotel really ought to get a second machine. In summary, as the hotel doesn't claim to be more than three star, the breakfast is acceptable but not outstanding - I suggest that the hotel considers reducing the range of food offered and raising the quality of the remainder. We did not try the hotel lunch or evening meal, the pool or the gym so cannot comment. A short walk from the hotel is the Pasteleria Lolita - very clean, a good selection of fresh sandwiches and pastries, and excellent coffee - all at very reasonable prices. We ate at the Il Pomodoro restaurant and at Tabla (don't be put off by the slightly scruffy appearance - the staff are great and the food is excellent). All-in-all the Lancelot is a good mid-range hotel - the renovation work has been well executed, with good quality furniture and fittings. All the common areas of the hotel are very clean and well maintained. English language skills on the reception desk are a little limited (as is my Spanish), but all the hotel staff are uniformly polite, friendly and helpful. We will happily stay there again if we return to Lanzarote.
Good location for beach and town. General appearance is good. Quite modern and appears clean. To be honest I'm pretty certain that this is the first hotel we have stayed in that does not have hot drink facilities in the room. Had a right carry on trying to get a kettle organized. You pay for safe and pay for fridge!!!! The cook who does breakfast needs to cook some of the breakfast bacon fully. Every morning bacon appears that has just been shown the grill. not appealing at all. The coffee machine is really a joke. Always a queue and it is just so slow in operation. Please invest in one more machine please?Overall breakfast is poor quality.Thank full was not on full or half board. Would have been nice to have had at least BBC world service channel. Staff were OK. WI fi OK. No parking.Free parking around 700m away. Nice little pool on top floor.
A peaceful time. A clean hotel. Lovely to have the beds made up everyday. I can’t fault the cleaning. Furniture a bit tired, leg on the desk chair was broken but we didn’t use it anyway, Disappointed not to have a sea view room, especially when we had emailed ahead weeks in advance. Breakfast was always fresh and could probably be do with two coffee machines. Could also do with a mini kettle for a cuppa in the rooms! None of this would stop me coming here again, the hotel was in a great location, the buses were pretty good especially the little free ones up and down the main strip, having the sea facing room would definitely be a factor next time. I will be packing my travel kettle and iron as well. Pool bar and ‘gym’ on the 6 th floor and lovely views. Definitely an older or couples holiday, not much for kids, but it did what I wanted - gave me a relaxing 10days away from home and Christmas mayhem, definitely re-booking as long as I get that front facing sea view room nice and high up! Being 10mins from the airport was great first off and last on! Airport was a bit of a drama if you have Jumbo or Ace as shuttle disregard all the reps that jump out at you as soon as you get through the arrivals lounge. Go down the right side of the building and to the virtually last desk on the right, you get a number and then you have to make a bit of a trek out to the shuttle station, there are travalators but if you are a bit slow or have a medical condition it’s not the greatest!
