First, the place itself was brilliant: Clean and comfortable feeling. The bedroom, the garden, the reception and breakfast rooms -- everything had a welcoming feel and were clean and tidy. Our bathroom was clean and well maintained - even the trashcan was in a good spot, you could reach the open lever with your toe while still sitting on the loo. If you've ever been to Greece, you know why that is important. Location of the hotel was good too -- with great views and the center of town was a short stroll away.
Second, the owner and her cousin were friendly, personable, and welcoming. They are clearly a very efficient and competent team. "Very hospitable and generous" as other reviewers have said. The owner speaks English (she's Australian)
Third, the breakfast was delicious and there was a bountiful and varied spread. We were encouraged to take some for our lunch later.
The little extra pluses - water pressure was decent and you could take a nice hot shower. A mosquito net hung over the bed, if you were so inclined to use it. The room and bathroom were a good size, not a matchbox, and the drain in the loo was off to the side (so a puddle didn't form right at the door and you didn't have to worry about getting wet feet every time you used the loo). Someone was smart in designing the bathrooms.
The kind of place that could become a second home.
