Great location,it was close to Corfu and other places that we wanted to visit. Free parking, bakery next to the hotel. Rooms were cleaned every day. The bathroom was very small, especially the shower. Good food in the restaurant and delicious breakfasts.

Second year we've visited for drinks and meals - sorry don't know about the rooms but if they are anything like the rest of the service they will be good. A genuine family business, nothing too much trouble. The guys that work there are superb, so friendly and Thomas that works the bar is a an amazing character. Really recommended.
