Fantastic hotel! Fantastic, and indeed english speaking, staff!! Breskfast of your own choice in the restaurant. Very clean. New linnen and towles on day two even though we just stayed for two nights at the end of our holiday. We could not have chosen a better place for our stay in Rethymno.

Our first impression on entering the reception area wasn't good, the floor was grubby and the tables were covered with a... More
