“A haven”
Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for nine days , wanting to recharge our batteries after a hectic year. Sougia is about as small a place as you can get yet still be on the map and it took us a few days to settle into the rhythm of doing absolutely nothing all day long , but we got there in the end .There are only four rooms in the hotel and as a previous reviewer mentioned number 4 faces away from the beach and I suspect is for short term stays , and there are of lot of these this time of year with walkers heading off in and arriving from all directions , god bless their energy . It is one of the nicest rooms we have had in Crete with a great shaded balcony overlooking the sea front . The pictures on the web site do not lie and the owners were friendly , welcoming and efficient .It is fairly new .I always like a haven to retreat to where we can sip wine / raki / etc.and read or just snooze and this is a place we will not soon forget .Its hard to get to , a two hour bus ride from Chania over spectacular , and dangerous , roads although little traffic and no real facilities .A perfect place to chill out but if you are looking for a heavy night life forget it .Restaurants all good and reasonable.

Stayed May 2013, traveled as a couple

Reviewed December 29, 2012

We had booked 4 nights here based on what we viewed on the website page. We left after one night. The website stated that the rooms faced onto the beach and sea. However, what was not made clear, either on the website or in communication with the owner, is that room 4 is at the back and the balcony faces a wall with an unsightly ladder going up to the roof. By extending your neck and looking round the corner one could make out the sea over trees in the distance.
The room itself was a reasonable size and in good condition. However, the kitchen lacked some basics including a kettle, small pan and a cork screw. The TV had no wall plug for the TV decoder (that we could see) with a tasteful display of wiring dangling below. Also the bathroom had an uncovered drain hole in the floor.
We did have the opportunity to look at a (vacated) room at the front and indeed the views were as advertised on the website.
To their credit, the manager in the taverna below did not make a fuss about our departure after one night and similarly the owner when we contacted him by email.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 4 if you want a sea view.
