What can I say about Heracles place we had been before in 2008 and loved it and yet again it was brilliant the Rooms , service everything is top class , spotlessly clean and comfortable beds. The breakfast comprised a selection of Homemade jams etc. which were very tasty they must have been as we brought some home with us.... More

We stayed one night to see the surrounding areas and visit a beach on the southern shore. As others mentioned, Heracles and his wife are friendly and the sparse rooms clean. Breakfast was overpriced. Overall, we thought the pension was a bit overrated.

We decided to escape the heat from the beaches in the south of Crete and head for the cool mountain air. It was a great decision. When we drove into the small parking lot at this small hotel, it was like the owner was waiting for us. He greeted us in the parking lot with a smile and helped carry... More

Spili in the mountains is a great place to visit. Make sure you visit the shops and talk to the nice ladies. Love meeting Helena and Zoe. Heracles Pension is a very comfortable and lovely place to stay.

We stopped for a night have cycled from Almerida near Chania and I was ready to stop! The lady who greater us was very friendly as was the Pension owner. Clean tidy rooms and a good breakfast. They were kind in a late check out and encouraging us to take our time exploring Spili the next day before we cycled... More

I think the address given for this hotel might be a little misleading. The pension is in the mountain town of Spili in the nome of Rethymnon, not in the city of Rethymnon. We stayed there in 2003 and again in 2013. Over those ten years, the spotless rooms have been quietly updated with a television set and other improvements... More

If you need a rest, there is no place like Spili, on the road between Rethymno and Agia Galini. This beautiful village, with the well.known Venetian fountain, is something absolutely extra. We came here some years ago, and the urge to get back was almost immediate. This time we wanted to wake up there, and so we found Heracles Pension.... More

Just what we needed for relaxation, Cretan hospitality and privacy. There are no words to describe the uniqueness of this hotel compared to the rest in the area. Just to name a few: Heracles and Christina, the owner and his assistant. Warm, caring and leaving u to enjoy your stay in peace without being strictly professional. To my eyes this... More

We started our GreekIsland holiday here, owing to the excellent reviews. Spilli is a small town of friendly people. We stayed 3 days. The restaurant choice is poor, Yanni's being the best, which we visited on night 2 and returned on night 3. The house wine really is the house wine. Heracles is a welcoming host and makes you feel...

Clean, quiet, and friendly stay in Spili. Our room was immaculate, secure, airy with balcony, well maintained, and with screens. We were welcomed by Heracles and his kind assistant (she gave us tour of the garden). Both conveyed hospitality. Heracles provided a map that he put together himself for a several mile hike in the hills up from town. It... More
