“A mixed bag”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2006

The Ino is above average for a Greek island hotel, but we found it to be a mixed bag. If you book for more than a few days the hotel sends a taxi to pick you up and return you to the airport. The location offers stunning views over the bay and the sunsets are simply stunning. However, the walk back from town is a bit of an effort and if you go in a car the combination of narrow road, blind bends and Greek drivers makes for an exhilarating experience. The hotel facilities are excellent and the staff unfailingly efficient, friendly and helpful. The choice of dining is a bit limited if you don’t want to walk or drive far: it’s either the hotel or the Kalami Taverna at about five minutes walk [and very good it is too].

The rooms are in need of refurbishment: in ours the bathroom suite was a dull brown colour, the chrome was worn away on the taps and the only light in the bathroom was the striplight over the mirror.

The food on offer shows a remarkable contrast. Breakfast is a very poor affair, don’t be fooled by the photos on the website: the coffee is lukewarm and tasteless, the fruit juice watery and the butter is mixed with something so that it looks and tastes like uncooked cake mix. You can get filter coffee and freshly squeezed orange at extra cost, but that is not the point: why not just add a couple of Euros to the room rate and provide better quality food? Worse still you are expected to clear away your own table. This might be expected in a works canteen or a youth hostel, but you don’t even do that in a Formula One hotel!

In complete contrast the evening restaurant is quite outstanding. Comfortable chairs and big tables with no pressure to eat up and make way for the next diners: the table is yours for the evening. The menu is limited, with a daily special, but the quality, price and quantity are all remarkable: try the seafood papardelle at 7.50 Euros: it would easily feed two.

Would we go back: on balance yes: the pros outweigh the cons: you don’t spend much time in the room, and it makes for a comfortable and relaxed base for a holiday in Samos,
