We booked and paid for a room with sea view, did not receive a sea view. Manager would not change the rooms nor offer discount for his error. Air conditioner was broken in the room. The next day server staff in restaurant were slow setting out breakfast and as a result we did not get to eat before leaving the... More

Although the Lamon had tie ups with travel organisations, it was quite easy to book in independently by email.. or by telephone as some people did. I have stayed there many times over recent years as did a number of Brits and European people I became friends with.. and enjoyed the ability to go independently. I also felt almost a... More

We ordered what we hoped would be a typically Cretan breakfast at Lamon Hotel, but received the our worst meal in Crete. Whilst the menu promised dakos (meze with rusk, chopped tomatoes, feta, olives), graviera cheese and freshly squeezed orange juice, what were given was very disappointing: rusk alone, processed slices of ham and cheese and some cheap cartoned juice....

The hotel made a mistake our reservation, so we had to spent half of our holiday in another appartment for higher price. They cannot give us the rooms we have booked, but they confirmed it. The manager of the hotel wasn't helpful. She did not want to compensate us for the higher costs of the apartment and asked for the... More

We were a group of friends and had booked 2 bed apartment. We were given 2 rooms with 2 bathrooms and kitchen with an interconnecting door which proved the perfect thing for our group. The manager was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless, only the towels were a little hard. Breakfast was a feast, more than we could... More

We have booked 2 rooms in Lamon Hotel for 7 nights in August. It turned out only few hours before our departure that there is an overbooking and they cannot give us the rooms we have booked. The manager was trying to shift the responsibility but it was clear that they have priority for bookings via booking.com. Then she has... More

We spent 1 night at this hotel which we booked last minute online. After reading the mixed reviews we were open minded, but i must say we were very pleased we got a tripple room which was great it was very modern and clean and the bathroom was also very modern with a great shower.

Having booked specific rooms, with full sea view, 10 months in advance we were not given them on arrival, we had paid a deposit directly at the hotel and a receipt was given stating room numbers. I spoke to the owner who was very arrogant and expected us to just accept things for what they were. We were offered alternative... More
