Taste is average while the food... More

The location is excellent. We had a coffee in the morning and then went for a walk in search of a tavern. Unfortunately there aren't too many choises so we ended back to Apokryfo. Food was average and expensive for the quality offered. It worths a visit but obviously not to eat.

Visited the houses over a business meeting. Had a great time as we all met in the big house with a fireplace and some music. Cold weather but inside the rooms gets really warm. Water is nice and hot at all times. Breakfast lets it down a bit but otherwise all great.

Honestly I can't fault this hotel and I consider myself to be more critical than Alex Polizzi - the Hotel Inspector.
