Location was good but food was very bland and had few choices. Reception staff gave priority to German Guests. We had a mistake with our booking caused by Thompsons but the hotel were totally unhelpful. Thomson also very unhelpful when we complained.

We've just spent two weeks at this lovely Hotel. Couldn't fault the Staff, everyone did their utmost to please us. When we arrived at 10.30ist in the evening, there was a meal waiting for us in the dining room, which was most appreciated. We woke next morning opened the curtains and our heart fell. Our view was very disappointing, to... More

I came here with my family in August, and my first impression of the place was that it's an okay place for a weeks stay. Wasn't too keen on the breakfasts unless you like stale toast or German sausages nearly every morning. Wifi was terrible to get down stairs as I could only get it in a certain corner of... More

We went to this hotel from 3rd-11th August 2014. On the plus side the hotel was extremely clean, the location was very central for tavernas and supermarket/local shops and an easy bus route to Rethymnon (tickets can be bought at reception).A welcome touch was that when we arrived at 1.30 a.m. there was a selection of snacks/tea and coffee ...very...
