The Hotel is suberb, room decor, bathroom excellent, mountain view wonderful,(sea view is very limited so not worth the cost) beds are firm ,I slept like a log. Local beach is handy ,good tavernas surround it, this beach is gravel in most areas, however in fairly close proximity to many white sand beaches, like Trapezaki, Canali, Lithero up the coast in Lourdas, so no problems if you have transport, and a litlle local knowledge.
The staff in the Hotel are excellent, from the manager Sassa to the cleaners, very helpful,friendly,, the waitresses do a great job in serving with a smile, despite some customers attitude, the menu needs review, remembering that this is Greece, the food is typical Greek style, the Stifado was great, however if you have booked half board, this should be served one course at a time and there should be some options for vegetarians on the main course, there is not.
For some nights in the week the food was buffet style not a la carte,which does not suit everybody, the buffet breakfast is fine.
We would recommend staying here on B & B ,which is probably the best option, and then eat each evening in the excellent local tavernas.
The location is close to the gravel beach and a road full of Tavernas, but is fairly remote in terms of visiting other resorts in the north and the east, buses are great when they are running otherwise hire a car.
Pool area is superb, many loungers, pool bar, all drinks are expensive, but not much dearer than outside the Hotel, local wines from supermarket ,cheap and surprisingly tasty.
If you want a quiet break ,in the sun ,wonderful hotel and staff, Greek food, no travelling, this is the place!!!!
