This is a B&B run by a wonderful family on the island and while I found everything i.e. rooms, location, cleanliness etc. very good by Patmos standards what really makes this place special are the people. Nicolas and his family are very warm and friendly - they do more than what is necessary in terms of just "business" and will help you out any way they can when possible.
The studio I stayed in had a mountain view (if you kept the room door open) and a sea view of Skala Harbour from the balcony. Studio was spacious, very clean (cleaned everyday with change of towels), simply but nicely furnished (2 single beds, small dining table + chairs, glass sitting table with chairs, some crockery / cutlery and cooking utensils, small fridge, a large wardrobe and two small chests of drawers beside each bed), air-conditioner capable of heating included and working, and the bathroom is basic (no shower box or curtain, just a shower place although the floor has a drain as is customary in most Greek island homes) but clean and with good water supply. Breakfast is simple and just fine - a fat slice of bread with butter and jam, biscuits, greek cheese puff, some fruit, coffee, fruit juice, cheese and home toast, and yogurt) and will be brought up to your room. The locality is pleasant as is the rest of the beautiful and relatively tranquil island of Patmos.
Nicolas is well known on this island and is in good standing so you can benefit from his network for certain things like car rentals for instance.
The only thing that could be improved would be to create a shower box or curtain of some sort in the bathrooms.
Overall: an excellent stay for me.
