This is well and truly a family-run hotel. It is small, homely and intimate with a brilliant view to the Skopelos bay.
I am a fun of small units such as this one, as I do not like the impersonal approach of the big ones.
The family makes sure you feel welcome and are helpful with all issues and queries, with a relaxed and friendly approach, making you feel like home.
I was able to access the free Wi-Fi from my room (the hotel claims access from common areas only, underselling really this feature), although it was relatively far from the common areas, using my laptop and a USB wireless dongle (Airlive WL-1600USB).
The free breakfast was great with local produce. However, only 3-4 tables are covered by shade during breakfast time and when there are more guests some makeshift tents are added on top of the tables towards the center of the outdoor breakfast area. Speaking of which, it is just a brilliant place to sit and admire the view in the evening when the sun goes down.
The hotel is quite and there were no problems sleeping there. The shutters used do not block out light 100% so if you are fussy about this you can ask for some dark-coloured drapes.
Skopelos port is just 4 mins away following a path through the village, this it the most central you can be without sacrificing peace and quiet.
I will surely go there again if I happen to revisit Skopelos
