First of all, I have to say that if you are looking for "value for money" in absolute terms, then don't go to Arahova. It's a popular skiing resort and a winter playground for rich Athenians so you are competing with customers who don't care about the figure on the invoice. Go to one of the adjacent villages if you just want a perfect night's sleep after skiing, without digging deep in your pocket.
With regards to the specific hotel now, I believe it is very good value for money, for Arahova standards. I stayed in a room in the old wing, which was big, clean, warm, had a huge bathroom and huge wardrobes. Fantastic view from the balcony over to Delhpi valley. Ok, the room showed its age, but that did not create any problems to my stay.
My four year old spent two hours in the swimming pool, which he absolutely loved. I loved it too; big pool, non slippery floor around it and a fantastic glass panel looking towards the setting sun in Delphi valley. My son also loved the children's play area, which although not equiped with anything other than 2-3 toys, at least it existed. The common areas of the hotel were very nice and the lounge staff was very helpful in getting together a small birthday bash for my boy. Also, the shuttle to the centre of the village came in very handy; parking in Arahova is a nightmare on Saturday nights.
Overall, I do reccomend this hotel to travelers who want a little bit of luxury and a share of Arahova's night life, without busting the bank (I've given 3/5 for value for money but this score is in absolute terms. I would grade them 5/5 with Arahova standards). I'll certainly visit them again.
