This place is great for children. Safe, plenty of space to run, nice swimming pool, good value and close to many restaurants. The staff is extremely positive and helpful. My boys made play-friends there while me and my wife were able to relax and enjoy our time!

We spent 2 weeks at the Ostria Hotel, returning 7th August. Our family , including 4 young children were made to feel so welcome throughout our stay. All the staff are friendly & extremely helpful. Anna & Sophia deserve a special mention as they both go out of their way to help you in any way that they can. They are a wealth of information about Skiathos but not at all 'in your face' . The hotel rooms are basic but have everything you need and are kept spotlessly clean. We had a 2 bed apartment & 2 bathrooms which was great. Our large veranda was straight onto the lovely gardens, where the children can play & beautiful mountain views.
The new restaurant is great, serving very fresh, delicious Greek food. They will even serve it to you on your balcony, which we did once when the children had an early night. The pool area is really nice & we often had the pool to ourselves as other people were at the beach, which is only a 2 minute walk away.
We will certainly return to this hotel as it is in a really good location, away from the road,very close to the beach & lots of tavernas. Customer service is superb. We had a wonderful time, thank you to all at Ostria!

Well, what can I say that hasn't been said before ? Geoffsale summed it up completely when he said that you arrive as a customer & leave as a friend, that says it all.
I must say BBQ stories is a great success, great food served in a great atmosphere. Do try & go to see & listen to Danny & Zoe they are great & play & sing a good variety of music.
Staying at the Ostria is such good value as so much is included in the price , things that you have to pay extra for at a lot of hotels such as air conditioning & a safe.
But the best thing as I have said before is the genuinely friendly service of all the staff & the family, they all work so well together to ensure that you have a fantastic time & want to return year after year.

We've been back to Ostria Hotel again and it just gets better all the time. We've been several times now and the accommodation is still superb and spotless and the atmosphere amazing . We meet old friends and make new ones every year. The owners and staff are also very, very friendly and just can't do enough to help to make your holiday perfect. It's safe to say you will arrive as a customer and leave as a friend

A new feature this year was the "B B Q Stories" restaurant which is open for meals every evening. Previously the only meals served were lights snacks but now there is a full menu with proper table service and meals cooked by a qualified chef on the outdoor barbecue. The meals are beautifully served and unlike many Greek restaurant the portions aren't overfacing, which we particularly liked as we are always watching our weight - especially after a few days on Skiathos. We particularly enjoyed the homemade steak burgers which I would normally never order in a restaurant. We can also recommend the veal steak and pork chops which are delicious. We have been many times to these apartments and have only rarely eaten at the bar area but we found the new restaurant to be a great addition and ate there several nights.

On top of that there is now a live music evening on Tuesdays with Danny and Zoe playing and singing old and new classics and if you are good enough you may even get to sing along! Takis can also usually be persuaded to perform some traditional Greek dancing - complete with flames - if the crowd are vocal enough.

The whole deal makes for a great holiday atmosphere and we have already booked for three weeks next year. In fact everyone who goes to Ostria seems to return regularly which really says it all! Five star plus for this small and friendly hotel.

We found the best part of this hotel was the Very welcoming staff. The rooms and accommodation were very clean but most of all was the personal touch.
Internet was a bit touch and go at time but we found wifi at the reception to be fine.

Previous comments and reviews from others say it all, i also was part of the birthday party and from the time i arrived when i was welcomed by staff with smiles and charm until the time i departed, the warmth never faded all week. Nothing was too much to ask of any of the staff, the accomodation was second to none and the facilities impeccable. The location is sensational just far enough away from town close enough to a perfect beach. The hospitalty received from Anna, Sophia, George and all the staff makes one feel so at home it is hard to leave. As i was travelling on through Greece and Croatia assistance from Anna with confirmation of transfers and other bookings made it so much easyier. Skiathos is full of fine accomodation everywhere but Ostria Hotel and Apartments stands out in the crowd.
