We stayed at the Troodos for a couple of nights during a trip round Cyprus during the 1st two weeks in October.
Though there's supposed to be wifi in all rooms, when we arrived we were offered a room with a view or a room with wifi. We chose the view, and were not disappointed! Receptionist was very helpful and bar staff were pleasant.
The room was clean, modern, air-conditioned (though we didn't need it), with a modern en suite and a TV which had a couple of English news channels. Very comfortable bed. A large mozzie net pulled over the entire panoramic window at night to stop us getting munched. There was no minibar, but we didn't need one.
The bar food was average (we had an overly oily salad and an overly greasy pizza), and drinks are expensive (think London prices)- though this is the case in much of south cyprus. Atmosphere in the bar was nice though. Breakfast on the first morning was great - a sort of Cypriot take on a full English - but I ordered the same on the second morning and it took ages and when it arrived it was rather cold and the fried potatoes were soaked in water. Ate it anyway as I was starving after trekking through the mountains the day before!
The Troodos mountains in October are absolutely stunning. Highly recommend the 7km Artemis trail around the top of Mount Olympus which provides some breathtaking views, and the 4km return trip to a scenic waterfall starting just outside platres village. The temperature was great in October but I imagine it may be too much for most Brits in the height of Summer. You'll need a car to get around, or you can hire bikes in the village square.
