We stopped for a night have cycled from Almerida near Chania and I was ready to stop! The lady who greater us was very friendly as was the Pension owner. Clean tidy rooms and a good breakfast. They were kind in a late check out and encouraging us to take our time exploring Spili the next day before we cycled... More

I think the address given for this hotel might be a little misleading. The pension is in the mountain town of Spili in the nome of Rethymnon, not in the city of Rethymnon. We stayed there in 2003 and again in 2013. Over those ten years, the spotless rooms have been quietly updated with a television set and other improvements... More

If you need a rest, there is no place like Spili, on the road between Rethymno and Agia Galini. This beautiful village, with the well.known Venetian fountain, is something absolutely extra. We came here some years ago, and the urge to get back was almost immediate. This time we wanted to wake up there, and so we found Heracles Pension.... More

Just what we needed for relaxation, Cretan hospitality and privacy. There are no words to describe the uniqueness of this hotel compared to the rest in the area. Just to name a few: Heracles and Christina, the owner and his assistant. Warm, caring and leaving u to enjoy your stay in peace without being strictly professional. To my eyes this... More

We started our GreekIsland holiday here, owing to the excellent reviews. Spilli is a small town of friendly people. We stayed 3 days. The restaurant choice is poor, Yanni's being the best, which we visited on night 2 and returned on night 3. The house wine really is the house wine. Heracles is a welcoming host and makes you feel...

Clean, quiet, and friendly stay in Spili. Our room was immaculate, secure, airy with balcony, well maintained, and with screens. We were welcomed by Heracles and his kind assistant (she gave us tour of the garden). Both conveyed hospitality. Heracles provided a map that he put together himself for a several mile hike in the hills up from town. It... More

We arrived on Easter Sunday afternoon without having booked. The door was open and on the table was a note from Heracles saying which rooms were free and asking any prospective visitors to help themselves as he was out and would be back later. What a wonderful show of trust and friendliness, it was just the start of a really... More

We visited Spili for 3 days in February, and found it just wonderful. It was in the very beginning of the flowering season. Heracles can give you advice on where to find the different flowers. And he gives you great advice on several hikes. For us staying in winther-time, the heating in the rooms was essential. As a matter of... More

I think my tastes run more rustic than the other reviewers, in that I did not at all like Spilli as a town. The first thing is saw as i got out of my car was a cat whose tail looked like it had been freshly cut off. Then after checking in with the LOVELY Heracles, I went for a... More

The rooms are clean and spacious, equipped with a fridge (and TV if you want one!) Heracles is a lovely host. The village was lovely for an evening, with a few bars and tavernas, with a friendly laid back atmosphere. Highly recommended.
