Before going I had read some mixed reviews but on the whole I found that from my experience of other Greek hotel Despo was above average for the price. firstly the staff were warm and friendly and very helpful. They spoke excellent English (as my Greek is pitiful) but... More

Despo hotel is excellent value with really good quality food home cooked daily. The rooms are basic more then adequate for the price and all the staff are exceedingly helpful and welcoming. Strongly recommended.

This was not a problem, staff provided another sheet for the single bed without a fuss. Room was basic, no fridge, no tv (not that that... More

I recently stayed at this hotel with my Mother in her early seventies. The rooms were very small and our furniture was in need of refurbishment. There was patio furniture but it was a struggle to open the door and sit down because of such a small space. We enjoyed the wonderful greek food and hospitality,I have never stayed in... More

Have just returned from the Despo having spent a week there with my daughter. Basically I cant believe some the comments posted about this hotel. We paid £450 all inclusive each, which judging by other comments, was very high. However, we had a fabulous time and really dont understand what people expect. Certainly those paying only £250 each - what... More
