“Really enjoyable”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

After reading some of the comments we travelled there with trepidation, only to find it was perfect for myself and my wife, biggest problem was the first night we had a little trouble finding it, really need GPS, or taxi - but a hire car is a must for travelling.
We had no problem with the staff, in fact my wife and I felt at home with the .owners, and their mother was great, a superb lady, rest of staff were exceptionally friendly , and helpful. Food at meal times very good and plenty on offer. I guess after travelling round the world, and staying in various grades of hotels, you get out what you put in room was very good, well decorated, quiet exactly what was required, and the location top class, for walking and as said, the staff as good as any 5* hotel we have stayed in, really friendly would return any time

After arriving at the hotel to be informed that they did not do room service we where advised not to eat in the restaurant because the food in the village restaurants was better. The owners of the company are dated my wife and I felt we where unwanted guests living in their house. In the morning after our first night stay we went to the restaurant around 9am (they closed for breakfast at 10) only to be meet by the rude son of the owner saying we where only aloud to sit outside as the restaurant is closed! there are 100 more stories i can go on with, how ever we had 4 nights booked and we stayed 1 and left after breakfast WITH OUT A REFUND of the other 3 nights which we did NOT STAY. Book cyprus did help us at all we lost 380 euros! more info e-mail d-l-e@hotmail.co.uk

The hotel is a small family owned and operated one. Very clean, friendly and willing to fulfill your requests to the extend possible. Excellent location and we will definitely be back.

The hotel apartment section is not actually apart of the main building. They are actually down the road past the New Helvetia hotel. The fridge and freezer did their job and were in good order. House keeping came around 3-4pm on evening two. Only real negative thing was the fact there was loud construction across the river from the chalet that went from 6am to 6pm. Which made for a far to early of a start to the day. They asking briefly tried charging me a second person fee despite the fact Expedia.ca already did. I recommend bringing a print out if booking through an outside agency.

The location is excellent. The building is very pretty from outside. We did not expect any luxury but the 90 euro per night we paid for BB was too much. There was no restaurant amenities at the hotel during our stay, so even for a snack we had to go to the town. The breakfast was quite good, however. The toilet had comparable leg space with an airliner but the worst experience was the bed; we had the most uncomfortable and painful sleep ever in our life with sore back and shoulders in the morning. We packed and checked out by 8:30 am the next morning.
