We really had a great time at Melrose Hotel. First, the location was ideal. Rethymno is half-way between Chania and Heraklion (about an hour drive in both directions), it provides a great base to visit Crete's natural wonders: the beautiful Samariá Gorge, Balos Beach, Lefka Ori (the White Mountains) amongst others. The neighborhood around the hotel itself is wonderful, and just a few meters from the beach, which is really practical for rest and relaxation. The staff at Melrose Hotel is very friendly and treated us like family. Hospitality is their middle name. Everyone--from the front desk workers to the waiters--speaks perfect English, so we had absolutely no problems with communication. Speaking of communication, it was great (and reassuring as we don't speak Greek!) We regularly received information by e-mail and in person indicating catering options and hotel amenities. Staff is very reactive. We had a half-board option, so during one of our day excursions when we were not able to have lunch directly onsite, the staff provided us with a takeaway solution allowing us to eat while we were away. Meals taken onsite were delicious, and representative of Cretan cuisine (delicious!!!): Grilled vegetables, endless feta cheese, dakos...one of the staff even gave us her recipe for strapatsada (thank you :) Really felt like a family member. The room was perfect. Accommodations are modern and very clean. There was even a balcony which allowed us to dine in in the evenings, not to mention a very spacious bathroom. Finally, we had tea and coffee provided directly in the room (with a kettle), and a refrigerated...and in it a complimentary bottle of wine. We would like to give a big thanks to everyone there, our experience wouldn't have been the same without you. We will definitely stay with you on our next vacation to Crete! σας ευχαριστώ

In august we stayed 10 days in the junior suite in melrose hotel. We had a great stay. The hotel is near the beach. Just a minute walk. There are a lot of restaurants at the boulevard near the hotel. It was 15/20 minutes walk to the old city centre. Rethymnon is a pleasant city to stay. The room in hotel was beautiful/comfortable and it had a large balcony with sea view. The room was clean and fully equipped. The staff was very friendly and always there to help us. The breakfast buffet was good. The choices varied every day. We stayed at melrose during corona. Sufficient measures had been taken by the hotel to keep the staff and guests safe. Despite the measures we had a great stay. We would recommend melrose hotel to everybody who wants to visit Crete. We definitely would like to visit Melrose again.
