This place is fantastic I went for a couple of nights as part of an intended tour too good to leave still there 5 days later. Quiet charming place where you feel part of the family.I have been back twice and going again this year .

Rooms clean and comfortable and breakfast good value at 4 euros for as much delicious bread,ham cheesejuice and coffee as you could want. Lovely family offer warm welcome and become friends.

Try out the Black Cat inespensive down- to- earth food and delicious cake at bakery.

We have been staying at Summer Lodge for many years now. It is run by a lovely family who take excellent care of their guests. Room rates are very reasonable and the rooms are bright and comfortable. Lots of information is available from Vassilis over breakfast in the garden patio area. He is a mine of information about places to visit, ways to get there, local festivals, etc. Many of his guests have been staying there for years - we know of one who is in their 25th year at least!! Summer Lodge has a fantastic pool surrounded by one of the prettiest gardens we have ever seen and it's a great place to chill out after a hard day's sightseeing. There are great places to eat within walking distance - notably the wonderful family restauarant The Albatross, and the fantastic Black Lantern. It is really easy to get anywhere from Summer Lodge as they are on a bus route so you can get to Chania and even Elafonisi with no trouble at all, even if you don't have a car. There is parking out front if you drive. Highly recommended - just go and try for yourself.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good. None of them face the road and you don't notice the traffic. There is...

We stayed one week and we loved this place! Nice pool perfect for a bath at sunset, comfortable and clean room. The owner gave us a lot of information about the area, he suggested 3 of the most beautiful beaches of Crete, wery helpful people and great service. (They have best orange juyce I've ever drink from their own trees!) The hotel is not far from nice places to visit as tourist, maximum rate!
