This hotel was a fantastic find! It was opened in May 2009 and everything in it is of excellent quality and spotless. I’ve been visiting the Greek Islands for the last 10 years now and have come to accept that Greek accommodation is pretty basic- as long as I have a bed and the apartment is clean that does me as long as I have the sun and beautiful scenery. However this year we had it all with the Elena Hotel in Nikiana- a powerful shower working 100%, beds made, rooms cleaned and lovely new white fluffy towels every day. This was a real holiday.
There was a lovely spread of food for breakfast -continental and cooked with a selection of food to cater for the variety of nationalities staying at the hotel and a variation in the selection of food from day to day.
The pool is small but perfectly adequate for the size of the hotel. There are deluxe sunbeds and parasols and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxed.
Demitrios, the owner is an American Greek and is very keen to make sure his guests are comfortable, happy and contented. He is interested in guests’ opinions in order to make their stay even better. When I thought I had lost my new camera he immediately phoned the police in Lefkada Town and showed me on the map exactly how to get to the police station. Ariati on reception has excellent English, is friendly and always cheerful and gave us great directions for getting around the island and also to the mainland.
The bar this year has been franchised out and is possibly the only area I would not award 10 out of 10 to as the drinks are quite expensive and it was closed 2-5pm while we were there. Dimitri is aware of this and plans to run the bar and bar food himself next year.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to everyone. It is amazing value for money. It is the best hotel I’ve stayed in abroad and we were made to feel the most welcome of any accommodation we have so far stayed in.
