Exceptional 10.0
Great stay
Great location, spacious room and bathroom. Friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast had nice variety to it, you can get breakfast packed to go if leaving hotel before assigned breakfast time.
Lea, ca3 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Mostly good.
The room was ok, but rather expensive. Our balcony was so tiny we had to take turns! This was a real disappointment. The breakfast was good but the coffee (from a machine) was awful. Why don't Greek hotels offer Greek coffee? I appreciated the provision of a small fridge but it was fairly useless as the electricity was off while we were out of the room so nothing got cold.
Averil, gb5 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Good hotel
Nice hotel and staff. Everything in the room is more than adequate but not outstanding. A kettle would be nice. Breakfast good and plenty. Communal areas including pool are lovely. Position of hotel on edge of old town so very convenient.
