As you will gather from other reviews the rooms are big! This is a heritage home and not a new-build hotel, and you get the grand impression as you walk in and have the stairs sweeping up.
We stayed here at the start and end of our trip.
We were warmly greeted and taken to our room on the top floor (2nd) during our first visit and first floor on our second visit. The whole places is full of character and the dark wood interior has obviously soaked up years of experiences.
Being an old building the layout and furniture reflects its age.
The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was also good - as was the enormous dressing room in-between the two!
The breakfast was OK and dining room overlooks the small pool at rear. It didn't encourage us to try dinner, as it looked rather gloomy at night time. We had an early morning flight and had to leave before breakfast on teh last day but they kindly prepared a packed breakfast for us.
We did use the Spa and the massages were good.
It is positioned facing the water and next door to restaurants and other hotels.
Overall we were very happy with Koder House. It was great value and its quirkiness adds to its charm.
They do have WIFI but it is not easily accessible in all rooms, but there is plenty of chill-out space on both the first and second floors.
