Got along with everyone really well, the workers Brad and Matt and the owner Nikos are a good laugh and easy to get along... More

One of the best hotels I have stayed in! Staff are so nice and welcoming! Had a couple of hiccups on the holiday and they were there to help us through! Couldn't ask for a nicer hotel. Wouldn't have been able to cope on the holiday with out them! Thank you to Nikos, Mat and Brad <3 !!
