Had a recent 3 night stay in the Mill Houses. Our room was a traditional cave room (Room 104 which is a junior suite) spread over 3 levels which was quite unique. We didn't have as much space as other rooms but the uniqueness made up for this - we had a brief look at some other rooms which are all different and have pro's and con's (more room, better view etc etc). The view from the hotel is spectacular and we enjoyed sunset from here every night. It’s a pleasant 10 minute walk to Fira which passes by a number of nice bars and shops. The service from the Mill Houses team was good from pick up to drop off. Drinks prices were reasonable as was the laundry service.
A couple of minor points - bathroom towels are looking a little tired (we ended up using the much nicer and bigger pool towels instead) and the fridge could do with updating although it was still very useful for water and wine. Also, the shower wasn't built for tall people - be prepared to crouch a little if you are over 5'8"!
There is a good restaurant in walking distance which wasn’t in TA called Vanilia, would highly recommend this. The Ginger Sushi Lounge also looked nice although we never ate there. Restaurant recomendation within Fira (10/15 minute walk) was Assyrtico - Fantastic meal and great wine.
We would recommend and will consider staying here again when/if we return to Santorini in the future
