    A simple but comfortable and friendly hotel where you are made very welcome.
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Double or Twin Room
    • Stayed 7 nights

    Breakfast isn't available until 9 am, which is a bit late if you're heading out for the day - but there are bakeries close by to get your own snacks etc. You do get a fair bit of road noise, but soon get used to it. Our room - 14 - would be better for just 1 person, as the double bed was against a wall on one side. It also has a shared terrace, so not too private.

    A very friendly place, only a short walk from the beach (pebbly) and with a good pool and garden. The owners are very helpful with ideas and information about places to visit, and can organise a number of trips. The location is good, with shops within walking distance and Chania only a short drive or bus ride away. It's a good starting point for exploring western Crete. Quieter and less touristy than staying in the bigger resorts such as Platanias. It's not deluxe - so no aircon, and only small bathrooms - but that's reflected in the price. All in all a very pleasant place to stay that we all enjoyed.

    Even though I ended up having to work during my holiday, I had a lovely stay and felt very well looked after! The beach is just a few minutes walk away down a quiet track and almost empty. The room was very clean and simple with a nice view of olive trees and the sea.

    There were a couple of rainy days so there was no hot water for the shower early in the morning. The road outside was a bit noisy at times (but also gave great access to other areas of Crete). There were some guard dogs nearby which barked a lot at times.

    The rooms were basic but clean and fairly comfortable. Vassilis & Rebecca were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The pool was lovely and sunbathing around it was great. We enjoyed having our lunches on the balcony overlooking the pool.

    Nothing really. The family were very welcoming and could not do enough to help.

    All the family are so lovely. I was a solo traveller and they went the extra mile to make my stay enjoyable, be it advising me on trips or charging my kindle :-). I loved having my breakfast in the little shaded garden every morning. I had free wifi in my room and my bed was very comfortable.
