눉We chose the room we thought was prettier (typically a girly decision!) which happened to front onto the main road/church, but found out a new night club had just opened in one of the flats opposite - on Fri/Sat nights they're open til approx 4am. (may not bother some if you're taking part, though or out late yourselves.)
눇Lovely location next to the church and opposite the Markellos Tower; the harbour is straight down the street, 3 mins walk away; the ice cream parlour is on the way! Lots of restaurants etc within walking distace, as is the ferry.
It's decorated with quirky style and based around two courtyards with plants and lights - very atmospheric - with the breakfast room above (you can look into the state room with the painted ceiling upstairs).
The owner, Rina, is very welcoming and accommodating,as is her daughter, and personally attends to you at breakfast (preparing rice pudding with cinnamon and freshly squeezed orange juice, as well as making her own preserves and cakes.) Nice to see a family run business on the island.
We were also given a choice of room when we arrived, which was nice. The rooms retain original walls, hand painted furniture and other features, which is great in terms of character, but be warned, the ants will find any baklava remnants you leave lying around!
There's TV and heating in the room if you want it, as well as a hairdryer. The shower was *fantastic* although you do need to switch it on 15 mins in advance, but we never had any problems. Sheets were changed for us whislt we were there, and the bins/towels were changed daily, again without us asking.
