We spent one night at the Spalnzia hotel on 27th September 2012 - the setting was perfect for what I had in mind - the backdrop to a marriage proposal!
The hotel is conveniently situated on the outskirts of the old town allowing easy access on foot to the best eateries and shopping areas Chania (and arguably Crete) has to offer.
On arrival the staff were helpful and came to our car to collect bags. They then askjed us to wait in reception while they "put the finishing touches to our room". This turned out to be fresh fruit and a bottle of wine and a free mini bar with water, soft drinks and beer. Lovely touches.
The staff in the hotel are just lovely - it is family run and the family are just so kind - Nikos and his brother (who I learned had studied in Bristol) made sure we had the best possible stay. They simply couldn't make us feel welcome enough, they were thrilled that we had got engaged at their hotel and were incredibly sweet.
On arrival they were keen to discover where we had been and showed us some of the best bits of Chania province and recommendations of beautiful beaches and restaurants were forthcoming. They were so proud of their little town, and the recommendations including a wonderful authentic greek cafe across the street were spot on. We will definitely be coming back and they offered a discount on another stay there.
Chania town is lovely, unspoilt and historic. We will definitely stay here again.
