I was in north greece as part of my job. I had to stop outside the town of Serres. There is a small village named Akritohori. I stayed in a new hotel by the name Melina. they have a site too. it is www.hotelmelina.gr.
the family who owns this hotel is so friendly so is his family who run this hotel. the breakfast was excellent , and all the dishes I had too. try the local spinach pie, it so tasty.
as for the rooms, they are so spacious, with a wide balcony , a jacuzzi too. extremely clean rooms and the sheets and thick expensive towels were changed every day. it so peaceful in this village that I am planning to visit this hotel next year with my family. Lake kerkini is very close too. it is a preserved wildarea with all kind of animals.
The locals are so friendly.
I left with the BEST IMPRESSIONS of this area and friendly hotel.
