“the worst ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2010

We've booked our stay to Thalero after watching the hotel's web site and we have chosen it due to it's location and rooms. Unfortunately we made the worst choice as the room wasn't clean and the cleaning ladies have entered only once to change our sheets and do nothing else. The bathroom curtain had black spots all over, there was no soap to clean the dishes and finally during our last night we found a cockroach to the kitchen. Note that we weren't able to use our balcony because it was too small (also the above room's laundry waters fell into ours) even for 2 persons. The worst was that the stuff & owners were really unfriendly and had bad service. The good thing is that we have finally decided to leave this hotel and went to some beautiful rooms in Nikiana, cheaper & bigger and with an excellent view!

the rooms were too small and they had no sound isolation! we had difficulty to sleep all days there.
the cleaning personnel was rude and not efficient. the day we arrived one sheet was dirty.

the only good thing is the location of the hotel,because it's about 5' from the town, but it's not enough. we didn't get what an average person expects from a hotel,(cleanliness,good service,relaxation) and we are disappointed.

I've stayed twice now at Thalero Apartments and would certainly look forward to a third visit in the future. It's an excellent base from which to explore the fascinating and diverse island of Lefkas.

The apartments themselves are clean, spacious and well equipped. The staff and management are friendly and helpful with a fantastic swimming pool, garden and bar area.

I would not hesitate in recommending the place to anyone.....!

when our accomodation was changed to the thalero we were a little concerned having read some of the older reviews. must say that maria and her family seem to have taken notice. our room was cleaned regularly bins emptied and floors mopped every day sheets changed twice a week which is fine. the rooms have air con and a tv and a radio alarm. no kettle but thats normal. pool is great and pool bar well stocked . my only gripe was that the bar did not open until about midday and closed at 8, just when we wanted a pre dinner drink. we solved that problem in the village though! not the most cheerful hosts we have had but it was the first week in june and only three rooms were let. picked up next week though. all in all we were pleasently surprised, wish someone would strangle the cockrell next door though3.00 am after a night at the art club is not funny!

Well , we soon found out that we should have stayed at Christina's .The rooms were basic , they hardly ever cleaned up , althought the 2 women who doubled up as gardeners did their best .They were not treated very well by the owners mother.The pool is lovely , they keep that area clean at least .We found the family who ran it very unhelpful , very rude .We made the best of it , we spent time at Christina's where we always got a very warm welcome , she baked caked , cooked meals which she did not charge for .Spiro her husband took guests out on his fishing boat free of charge.
We had several Cockerills to wake us up at 4 am , and then keep us awake .
The Art bar is the only bar around , it is run by a lovely man called Spiro , he owns some lovely clean modern appartments , he fed us all sorts of wonderful things , he is the best bartender in the world.He plays great music , you can use the internet for free , he made our holiday .
We have stayed many many times in Greece , we have always had a warm welcolm but you wont get that at Thalero.
