We stayed at this place in the dead of winter, and were the only people there. We had a great time and found this clean, friendly, well-situated place to be entirely adequate for our needs.
Situated on a bluff overlooking town, and accessible to it through a short flight of steps leading to a pretty olive grove just behind town, the hotel has an awesome sunset view (which all rooms get). We had a decent-sized balcony. The rooms are functional rather than stylish - white walls, marble tiles, old-fashioned fittings - and the bathrooms are small and without any hint of avante garde - but that was OK for us. Aircon and a radiator combined kept the cold of winter at bay, not that this area gets really brutally cold anyway. The suite we were in had a small kitchen/dining area that’d suit a small family, if you wanted to cook/eat in. Breakfasts were hearty with a great variety of cold cuts, cheeses, fruit, yoghurt with honey, omelet, pastries, etc. We didn’t need lunch after this!
At the price, this was one of the best-value places we stayed during our 2-week Greece winter sojourn. The location is great (esp. for walkers, as it backs onto the hills where great trails can be found), the service attentive, everything is clean & functional, and the sunset view priceless. I’d stay here again.
