This hotel is very well run, spotlessly clean and well maintained- the staff are very helpful and respond immediately to any problems. It is well located at the end of the promenade so it is quite quiet and right by the seafront. The rooms are fairly basic but have a small fridge, TV, safe, individual aircon, hairdryer, washing line and even a mosquito screen to the balony doors. Showering is quite an art as the curtain can stick to you but hey- this is Greece!The pool is clean and there were plenty of sunbeds and parasols and even a jacuzzi which is switched on on request. Breakfast is basic but good quality continental style, and the area serves as a bar during the day.The Pool Bar, which opens in the evening,is a delight, being lit up very prettily. A short walk along the seafront brings you to a great selection of cafes and restaurants and all reasonably priced- a large beer is 3 euros and coffee 2. Three courses with wine for two was around 30 euros and watching the harbour life was an idyllic way to spend an evening. Parallel to the promenade is a road with lots of shops,cafes etc so you are never short of places to go.The frozen yogurt and the waffles are excellent everywhere!
The bus to Lefkas town stops right outside the hotel, the other direction takes you to Vasilliki, both journeys about 20 mins and 2-3 euros. Lefkada is joined to the mainland by a pontoon bridge by Lefkas town, which swings over for five minutes on the hour every hour, to allow the boat traffic to pass and maintain it's island status (for tax purposes!) Quite a sight!
Back in Nidri, there are sunbeds and parasols available further along the front for 2-4 euros a day, but the beach is mainly pebbles.You can walk the 3 km to the waterfall ( best after it's been raining) or take a boat trip around the island. Although the ferry will take you to the island of Meganissi the timetable means that unless you go at about 7am you can't get back! About the only disappointment in a lovely relaxing fortnight.
