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

1st floor basic room. TV was useless and way too big for the room. Yet to adopt LCD flat screens although I suspect satellite would still not be that good! Anyway who goes on holiday to watch Greek TV? Good breakfast Good location. Best restaurant in the area if you turn right outside the hotel and carry on for 100... More

We booked for 5 days wished we had stayed longer- the Hotel has stunning views of the sunrise from the bedroom - The balconies all look out to see. Breakfast was included and was great. It is in a quiet area but only 200metres from the main restaurants along the sea front. Good value - no web site yet (under... More

I stayed at 'On the rocks' last June with a friend of mine. I would agree with another review that the air-conditioning didn't work properly. Also there was a problem with our shower as the bathroom would kind of flood every time we had a shower. Other than that it was great! The staff were super friendly (The young lady... More

Visited and paid for hotel but the actual rate is rented rooms. Poor cleaning, definately not day by day linen change, as it should. Excellent breaklast and good service at the reception. Definately overpriced for a typical room. The moisty atmosphere and average air condition quality made our sleep, a dream that didn't came truth...
