We hoped for the usual Greek 3 star hotel - usually one more than it would rate in UK, but were very pleased to find a hotel that was up to 3 star standard, and in some aspects better. Our room, 306, had a reasonable sized balcony, plenty of room for the 2 chairs and table. It was lit and had a perfect view of the sea and harbour. The room was a very reasonable size, and had all the usual hotel fittings - good sized wardrobe, large bed-settee etc....Good size bathroom with marble basin surround,always plenty of hot water and good pressure for the shower! Aircon was quiet and had a working remote.
Breakfast was better than many of the hotels we have visited in Greece and Turkey, a good selection of hot and cold food, with a selection of fruit,Yoghurts and cereals.
Staff were without exception friendly and helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
Room cleaning and pool cleaning were excellent.
We enjoyed our stay here very much. We havent been to Crete for some years and previosly usually stayed in Chania, but being closer to the centre of the island was much better for exploring. We certainly intend to return to this hotel,its position and standard of comfort would be very hard to beat for the price.
Car hire was expensive at 40Eur. per day - might be cheaper to book in the UK.
A large ring doughnut at Arkady monastry cost 4Eur!!! Food was otherwise about the same cost as UK, but we were disapointed with the quality, it was always edible but even Greek specialty dishes were not good as we are used to in Bristol.
