We have just arrived home from a fabulous fortnight holiday at The George Hotel, Nidri. The hotel far exceeded our expectations! We have holidayed in numerous Greek islands and when considering value for money it is the best we have experienced. The rooms were cleaned daily and were very clean (due to the hard working room maids.) We were provided with clean towels each day and regular change of sheets. We had a room on the first floor with lovely views of the mountains at the back of the hotel. The attractive pool area was great but the garden was even better as it was more spacious (enabling you to follow the shade of the parasol). The bar and dining area were also lovely and the food, made with their home grown fruit and veg, was delicious! Location was great as it was only a couple of minutes from the hustle and bustle of the main street and harbour but still very tranquil. But what made the hotel extra special was the staff. They made us feel so welcome and were very friendly and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble for them and any problems that we had were dealt with immediately and efficiently. By the time it was the end of our holiday we felt like we were leaving good friends. We will especially miss Martina, George, Khalid, Constantinos, Marcos and of course Maria and her laugh! We’ll also miss the world’s best mojito!! But I think most of all we will miss Billo, the sweetest little ‘rescue’ dog.
Now let’s address other people’s negative comments. Yes the breakfast didn’t include Greek yoghurt and fruit and I was initially a little bit disappointed, but then the homemade marmalade made up for it! The air con, safe key etc. were a little dearer than other hotels, but then the cost of our holiday (booked through Thomas cook) was extremely cheap compared to other hotels of this standard. Apparently Thomas Cook keeps driving the prices down. So if you want all the extras, well pay for a more expensive hotel in the first place!!
As for the collection box for Billo, well quite frankly we didn’t mind at all. Was anyone forcing you to put money in the box? We even bought doggie treats for her!!
This is the first time we have ever commented on trip advisor. Having returned from previous holidays we have always had the good intention on commenting but then have never got round to it. So the fact that we have actually posted this recommendation is proof of what a fabulous hotel it is!!!
