We debated whether to stay in Skala town or outside, but were so glad we chose to stay in Captains House. It's tucked away at one end of the harbour, with pretty views and easy walking distance to all the restaurants, bars and shops. Its a family run hotel, and the owner is really helpful and prepares a delicious breakfast buffet with home made croissants, cakes and really good coffee. You can eat your breakfast at tables on the small beach in front of the hotel. It is spotlessly clean and has been recently refurbished with new bathroom fittings, comfy beds and pillows. Undoubtedly the best rooms are those at the front with a small balcony and harbour view. If available it is worth spending Euro 20 a night extra for the suite 23 which has a balcony and is larger ( 4 beds), lighter with a bigger shower and Wifi connectivity. The shower cubicles in the other rooms are a bit cramped, and not all can access Wifi. The rooms at the back do not have a good view and are darker.
Next to the hotel is the old donkey path up to the Chora which is worth the climb for the views (about 1 hour walk).
