“Perfect residence for a perfect holiday!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We spent 4 nights at Mill Houses from 16 Dec. All we can say is that we enjoyed every single minute there. It is professionally managed like any 5-star hotel, but with more personal touches. General Manager Dimitris is ready to answer all our questions, and make superb restaurant recommendations. Pilot, the pleasant and shy pool bar manager, carefully prepared sumptuous breakfast every day; we love him!

Excellent services aside, the spectacular view of Caldera from the pool bar alone is worth every day we pay.

My partner and I travelled to Greece for a 2-week break (and partly for me to attend a conference), most of which we spent in Athens and the surrounding towns. For our Greek islands experience we spent 4 days and 3 nights in Santorini, a paradise destination which was part of my bucket list. It was getting into the Greek winter there so many places were shut and there was hardly anyone around (probably about 10 people in total at the castle in Oia waiting for the sunset, as opposed to hundreds during the peak of summer!).

Mill Houses was an awesome place to stay in, & I’m glad that of all the accommodation options that’s the one we chose. The cost was reasonable too (We found a good deal on Expedia). To show how good the reputation of this place is, when I was at the conference describing to someone where I will be staying in Santorini, she knew that I was talking about Mill Houses!

Things I liked about this place:
- Great location – right in Fira, with shops only a walking distance. You go outside your room and you have stunning views of the caldera
- Complimentary transfers to and from the airport
- Room was stunning – white cave rooms, great facilities including an iPod dock. I loved the Bvlgari toiletries especially! We were in a studio room which was a bit small but very clean.
- Great breakfast service – You choose anything you like from their menu and they bring it to your room when you’re ready! (Wake up, give them a call, and 10 minutes breakfast arrives)
- Daily reminders are left in your room regarding the weather forecast for the next day.
- Excellent staff service, from the manager Dimitris to his other staff. Very courteous and polite. Dimitris took the time to recommend excellent places to visit and have a nice dinner as it was my partner’s birthday while we were there. Dimitris also helped organise a surprise birthday cake way before my partner and I arrived in Greece!

The couple of minor issues with the studio room: If you’re tall you have to hunch over so you don’t hit your head going down the steps to head towards the bathroom. The pure white flooring and the small area between the bed and the top of the staircase also posed as a bit of a hazard when wanting to go downstairs in the middle of the night.

Nonetheless, if you’re looking for an excellent place to stay in Santorini, BOOK THIS ONE!! This is definitely a great place to stay.

Enjoy your holiday!

I have never stayed anywhere else in Santorini so I don't have other hotels in the area to compare it to - maybe all of Santorini is this great. But, now that I've been to Mill Houses, I would never book anywhere else on the island just in case it isn't as wonderful. I don't think there is a single room without an amazing view, the decor is modern and clean, the breakfast that they bring to your room is outstanding and the rooms are very quiet. But it's the staff that makes this place stand out. Every single person we dealt with was professional, helpful, etc. We especially appreciated how honest everyone was.

We stayed during the low season, and unfortunately the weather was quite cold and windy.

The views however from this place is GORGEOUS! We were blessed to be provided with one of the honeymoon suites for our special weekend and the views outside of the windows and front door is straight in front of the caldera itself.

Dimitris welcomed us warmly upon arriving at the airport as we got picked up with the complimentary airport pickup and drop off service provided by Mill Houses. The rest of the staff were all very professional and extremely polite.

The room we spent 2 nights in was very comfortable, although we didn't like that the shower had no curtain or wall which ended up in an extremely wet bathroom floor. The top bed blanket had a few stains when we arrived which was a little bit gross, but nothing that would stop us fro visitting again.

The breakfast service was amazing, in that we were provided with a purely personal and all you can eat breakfast buffet which was delicious!

Reception was always available and all of our questions and queries were answered swiftly and precisely which really helped us with our entire weekend.

Definitely recommend staying here at any time of the year as during the quieter times, you will receive immaculate service seeing as there are fewer customer for the staff to take care of.

Truly a special weekend, and this accommodation played its key part in it.

Thanks Dimitris and Staff!

Room Tip: Just be careful not to touch the light fittings as they burned our fingers because they were extreme...

We had 4 nights in this beautiful hotel. We loved the decor and the feel of the apartment.
The cave rooms are fantastic, and I liked getting up in the middle of the night, and walking down the stairs which were illuminated in blue light.
Dimitri and his staff were amazing and really made our stay special. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were friendly and had a great sense of humour.
The breakfasts were fantastic and it was brilliant to have breakfast outside our room near the pool looking over such breathtaking views.
The only criticism I could make (and it is a very very minor one!), is that you couldn't lean against a headboard when sitting up in bed. That is a very minor thing though and I am 100% sure that if we had have asked Dimitri that he would have gone out of his way to provide some sort of solution.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. It was clean, quiet, well serviced and centrally located.
The views were just magnificent. Beers by the pool watching the sunset each night=heaven.
Will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Santorini.

I will rate this hotel to be the best in Santorini for the efficiency and cleanness and the clear sun set view from the hotel terrace.

1. Our reservation was confirm from the hotel website and was honored by Dimitris Mitsios in few minutes with a welcome email.

2. Our airport pickup was very smooth, was picked up by one of the hotel representative with a smile and signage of the hotel name and a lot of information on the way to the hotel. We got a return complementary pickup. :)

3. Upon arrival we were offered the welcome wine with a fruit platter, which we decided to take while we watch the sun set.

4. Dimitris Mitsios have shown us our room, we booked the junior suite and we got room number 105.

5.The hotel staff is very helpfull with all the information we needed in any manner.

6. We got a list of selection for our breakfast, first time ever experience a hotel manager/owner asking us what we will like to have, we tick all the good selections for breakfast.

7. From the hotel pool or the terrace the view of volcanic cliff of the world famous Caldera of Santorini is awesome and magical. Check out my pictures.

8. Rooms was very very very clean and spacious.

9. Free wifi internet is super fast and i am using it now :)

10. 10 minutes walk to the center of fira town or located in the village of Firostefani, less than 700m from the island’s capital of Fira and 15 minutes from Santorini’s International Airport and Athinios Port.

I will surely return to these hotel in March 2013 for 15 days stay, its the best they have in Santorini.

Room Tip: All the rooms are design in its own way, mine was junior suite and i am speechless on how to express...

My daughter and I had the perfect 5 day break at Mill Houses. We had room 104 which was ideal for us as we had bedrooms on separate floors. It is a cave room but that is part of the charm of the hotel as it is set in the rock face. The breakfast is amazing - delicious and plentiful. The staff are unfailingly polite, friendly and helpful. Even right at the end of the season Dimitris was still happy to answer all our questions. The transfers to and from the airport were much appreciated. We would recommend this hotel to anyone.
