My husband and I spent 4 nights at On the Rocks and found it to be a peaceful and well located hotel. It is a short walk away from the busier town and was quiet at night. Our room had a separate bedroom and a sitting area with a couch, desk and TV. This looked out towards the balcony which... More

Although the bedroom and bathroom are small this is a good hotel for a relaxing stay. Close to the main area of the town with fantastic views of the sea and mountains. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good with a wide choice of food.

We had a room on the first floor with excellent views of the water. The staff was wonderful and made sure that our special occasion was celebrated with great fanfare. The breakfast was wonderful and I would have to say that this is the best place that we have stayed in Paleochora (been here 4 times). Lovely and romantic.

We stayed here for 6 nights in August 2013. Our room was small but adequate. The view from the balcony is lovely - every morning we were able to watch the ferry to Agia Roumeli depart at 8.30 and return at 7pm. Breakfast at the hotel was excellent, with a great selection of fruit, cereal, cold meats, cheese, bread, croissants,... More

We stayed for 2 nights last week and found this little hotel to be way beyond expectations. Bright, clean with lovely balcony view of the sea and quite modern. The staff were friendly and breakfast was well presented and very enjoyable. The location overlooked the rocks (obviously the name gave us some hint!) and was a short walk into the... More

We were most impressed be all that this hotel has to offer: good-sized rooms and comfortable beds (and pillows!) with wonderful views straight out to sea and along the coast to the east, excellent breakfasts, and staff who are helpful and alert. All was clean and comfortable. The hotel's position is good too - 5 minutes from the town centre... More

We stayed three nights in late September. The room on the second floor with an eastward-facing balcony was quite satisfactory except for one thing: The mini-bar cabinet had been built with no exhaust air vent, resulting in that the cooling machinery ran all the time making the cabinet and the mini-bar quite hot! This was easily fixed by keeping the... More

We arrived in Paleochora without a reservation and tried a few places with no success - all booked up despite it being mid September. Then we saw the Hotel on the Rocks. It's in a nice part of Paleochora with great views of the sunset from the balcony. It's also a stone's throw from the ferry boat meaning you can... More
