We had the great pleasure to stay at Hotel Skamnos for four nights in May, 2014 The owner and her family went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Kaloussa provided a very complete list of places for us to visit in the area ranging from coastal towns, museums, and a monastery We even visited a bauxite mine that is about 30 Km from the hotel.
As others have said, the breakfasts are really very special, with all manner of home baked items and preserves prepared by Kaloussa's mother.
Kaloussa also provided us with valuable information about other nice hotels in different areas in Greece.
If you are looking for a restful location away from the urban hotels, then we would highly recommend staying at Hotel Skamnos
