This hotel is a lovely, clean and cheery little gem. The rooms are not that small as previously described - however the shower room will be an experience. Ours had a shower curtain that really wasn't worth having - however when in Greece! The manager or owner was friendly enough as was most of the staff. The only 2 not-so-good points I feel I need to point out is firstly the breakfast. It is so repetitive and borning! Same stuff every morning - eggs, cheese, weird tasting ham, greek yoghurt. One day we were lucky and had tomatoes. Fruit would be a suggestion or even like in Turkey where they give you olives, cucumber, tomatoes. I have to say the bread was always fresh though! Secondly the hotel really does need either aircon or a large ceiling fan in the breakfast area as it was so hot.
Unfortunately Greece is no longer a cheap place to go - in fact England on most occasions now is far cheaper. Beware if you are a spirit drinker as at the hotel a vodka was 5 euros and a tin of diet coke was 2.20 euros!!! Lager was 3 so not too bad. Perhaps a suggestion of a happy hour?? Or a cheap cocktail night as 6.50 euros for a cocktail again was far to expensive.
Regarding places to eat. We were recommended by quite a few people to go to the Pinewood Taverna which is set on the beach - at the end of the road from hotel turn left not right towards the main strip. Also turning right at the bottom and on the front is Mamma Mias both restaurants had excellent home cooked food and at Mamma Mias you got freebies - i.e. Ouzo, Brandy, Schnapps! Nice one considering I had to mainly stick to beer due to the price of Vodka - ended up buying a bottle of Smirnoff in the supermarked for 18 euros!! Also try Apollon that again is home cooked food. We only had one bad meal and that was at Meganissy. Dont bother with the Tavernas on the beach there as they were of very poor quality compared to Nidri.
This island really is picturesque - our only regret was not catching the boat to around the other side of the island to what looks like pure white sand beaches unlike Nidri's stone and shingle - mind you 4 euros for 2 beds and a brolly is very good! I went to price up the Parachute thing on the beach and that was 45 euros!! Er no thanks! It was 15 euros just to sit on a rubber couch-like thing!
I would never go back to a Greek Island as there are far too many to see - however Nidri was by far the most impressive - just overpriced unfortunately.
