Don't go expecting 4 star standards in the rooms and you won't be disappointed. Our twin room was small with a minimum of furniture, a wardrobe (built in) with very dodgy sliding doors that jammed all the time, a fridge built in with the wardrobe and just a few feet away from the bed, so that you could listen to it switching on and off all night, and not enough drawer space. However, on reflection you probably don't need a lot of space for clothes, we took too many. A couple of pairs of shorts, some shirts and a pair of long trousers for the evening. Undies, sandals and a pair of casual shoes should do it. The bathroom was pretty small and really old fashioned with a shower that dribbled hot water when it felt like it and nowhere to put toiletries apart from a small glass shelf above the well worn sink. Rooms need a bit upgrading and a little money could make a lot of difference to the appearance and comfort of the rooms. Our room was a bit prison like, white walls and one very small picture hanging on its own - how about a repaint and some additional but tasteful pictures, a hook on the back of the bathroom door would be appreciated. Asked for a pool view when booking with Thomsons but in the event our allocated room looked out on the roof of the dinning room although you could just see the bar and the the corner of the pool!
Now the good things, the food at the Pela was good and we ate in every night except one. A good menu for a small hotel with very reasonable prices and choices, the house wine was acceptable and well priced. Breakfast was the usual buffet that could do with some improvement on the quality of the offerings but just about acceptable. Please folks get rid of that horrid coffee and hot water machine (makes some of the worst coffee I've tasted) and get back to basics with boiling water for tea and a proper percolator for the coffee. Everything was spotless and despite the age of the room our cleaning ladies did their best and kept the place really clean and tidy. It's a real friendly little hotel and the family are always on hand if you need drinks or snacks so you tend to forget the shortcomings because the people are so nice. The location is fine, just about seven minutes walk to the village. Would we go back ? Maybe, maybe but would probably pay a bit more and go for a slightly higher standard hotel although in terms of value for money the Pela would be hard to beat. Thomsons are not including Lesbos in their 2012 brochures and Thomas Cook don't appear to have the Pela in their brochure which in some ways is a shame. However you can still book independently at a special rate of 20 Euro s a night per room including breakfast by contacting the hotel directly. - just don't get room 103!
