Taking into consideration the price we paid (a special offer available from the hotel's website) the overall grade could be more than average, nevertheless we have decided it to grade it as such because of the way the hotel is "advertising" itself which denotes an inconsistency in our opinion.
The room is simply adequate (certainly not boutique) in any way, regarding the behavior from the hotel staff let's just say we were not overwhelmed by their friendliness and warmth.
The gym equipment is not properly maintained (practically not possible to have a proper workout), the breakfast offered as actually quite poor (and the not-really-tasty home-made marmelades won't cover for the fact that you only have bread, omelette, some ham/cheese and very few croissants to eat... Oh, and it's only 8-10 and at 10 they come and grab our coffee cup to wash it and be done with it.

On the other hand, the lounge/patio is exquisite, with chillout music helping enjoy the mountain scenery outside and the very elegant furnishings inside.

We didn't try the pool, so cannot comment on that.

Dear Protoporos thanks a lot for your review even though we can not find out what was the point of it. You had an extra extra offer of 45 Euros per night incl breakfast buffet, pool use and gym. Such a price with all these offered must have made you happy. We try the best for our clients and as for the breakfast you stayed 2 hours and tried all of it and as your table had lots of plates on it and coffee cups we just wanted to clean it so you could feel better. You could tell us to leave it. Sorry for that. As for the room which was not like a boutique hotel just a definition of it : Typically boutique hotels are furnished in a themed, stylish and/or aspirational manner. Boutique hotels are often individual and focused on offering their services in a comfortable, intimate, and welcoming setting.
Would also be lovely to make a comparison of the price you payed with other hotels and rooms-to-let in the area and tell us your experience about.Thanks a lot again and hope to serve you on a next visit to Arachova area

We just came back from a short stay in Boutique Hotel SKAMNOS.
The hotel is amazing and is on a very nice location on Mount Parnassos and offers well furnished rooms. The Breakfast area just superb with mountain views and the home made crepes, marmalades and many more were as we expected to be.

Very nice stay, overall a great choice, with a fantastic pool and spa area...anyway, we intend to go back soon.

Room Tip: we stayed in a studio with fireplace with grey - pink walls and country furniture. The view from the...

Skamnos is a lovely boutique hotel based literally in the mountain of Parnassos. It's location is fantastic and there are a lot of activities that you can do from skiing in the winter, bycicling and horse riding. The hospitality and rooms are great and a relaxing bar exists with chill out music. Finally there is a SPA available with an indoor pool, xamam and sauna that completes the relaxation.

I stayed, at Skamnos, for two nights, on a business trip to Arachova. Very close to the city and close enough to the ski center. Even though I went in an out of season period (May), the service was excellent and the personnel very kind and helpful. Very nice premices, and a yummy breakfast. Thank you Skamnos .. I will return soon, for pleasure!!!

This is an excellent hotel in the Mount Parnassos range. Wonderful service and a great location made our stay memorable. Summer is the off-season here and the elevated position provides cool walks and a respite from the summer heat.
