This has only been opened for about 5 years and is set out very well. The staff are very well informed and enthusiastic. We ended up with a much clearer idea of the whole process which was useful since we had seen thousands of olive trees during the course of our stay on Lesbos.

You have the Aegean sea in front of your eyes! A former oil press factory has been
converted to a hotel with an impresive thirty meters high chimney as a trademark.
The cosy guest rooms are arranged around an inner stone-paved courtyard, while others offer balconies with direct sea view where our privileged guests can enjoy the memorable, romantic Molyvos sunsets.
The hotel features guest rooms with air conditioning and mini bar. In addition,the independent studios are equipped with a kitchenette area. Internet corner with free Wi Fi is also available. The hotel offers the possibility to dine at itsrestaurant by tasting traditional greek cuisine or at its beach bar which is located near the swimming pool and the water sports.

We did this as part of a shore excursion whilst cruising the Mediterranean in July 2014.
How very interesting it was to see all the old olive oil making machinery beautifully restored, plus the buildings which house everything are really wonderful also.
We tasted a couple of olive oil samples & were able to purchase a DVD showing all aspects of the progress for transforming the building ruins & exhibits into what the Museum is today - only one complaint though, it's in Greek, unfortunately.
Would really suggest to Lesvos visitors that they should definitely pay a visit.
