“A fantastic holiday made special by hotel staff”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

It took me ages to choose where to stay in Santorini. But I made the right choice. This hotel was fantastic, the rooms, the location were perfect. The staff couldn't do enough for you. I am on a medically controlled diet which is why we chose a hotel which had self catering facilities. Sean asked me what I could eat and went out and bought it especially for me so they could make my breakfast. I was really impressed.

Couldn't fault it at all.

Thanks for making it a special holiday x

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite which was really nice and private.

We stayed at Mill Houses in late June and thoroughly enjoyed our two nights there. As other reviews suggest the views are spectacular, the hotel is ideally positioned a short walk from Fira and the breakfast was the best we had during our five week holiday through Greece and Italy. Most of all the staff that work at Mill Houses are just so accommodating, helpful and professional. They make a great place superb. The only blemish was the room we were allocated on night one. Whilst clean and comfortable the room was under the adjoining restaurant and bar. You can be distracted by the sound of moving chairs etc above. The second night we were moved to a far better room beside the pool which was very much appreciated. We would stay here gain.

Room Tip: Try to avoid room numbers 1 through to 4 which are the closest rooms to street level located to the...

We were staying for our honeymoon and on our first night were upgraded to a nicer suite (for the night). This was a lovely surprise. The hotel has amazing views, the breakfast is good - if you want anything not on the menu just ask for it. The staff were very helpful and gave us good tips on sights to see and places to eat. Our room was very comfortable and had 2 very good AC's. The pool was a little small but the hotel isn't huge so it's sufficient. Overall a nice place to stay with helpful staff!

We spent 11 idyllic days at Millhouses.
All reviews about this hotel focus on:
- the view
- the location (quiet, a short walk from Fira)
- the helpful, friendly and great team of staff
- the tasty breakfast

I will echo all of that - simply superb

You will also enjoy the peace and quiet and good food from the local restaurants (Pirouni is very good)
We loved the home made brownie that we were given each night as part of the turndown service, and the personal attention from the staff. For example, we often asked for a late breakfast and they simply left it in our fridge for us to eat when we returned from our early morning trip to the gym.
The hotel has a small number of rooms, all unique. We initially had a room with the bedroom upstairs, and this was novel. During our stay we asked for a room with a private balcony (it was our honeymoon) and this was simply and easily accommodated. Great customer service all round

We would definitely go back to Santorini and stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private balcony. The views of the sunset over the Caldera are stunning

The hotel is a little north of Fira, which is a GOOD thing because the area isn't nearly as crowded. The walk down to the hotel is completely fine, you'll go down several flights of stairs. We had a hotel employee pick us up at the airport for free, so he was able to handle the heaviest bags. The hotel itself is beautiful...you've seen plenty of pictures I'm sure, but honestly no pics do justice to the view. It is absolutely stunning. There is just an amazing quiet once you get to the hotel and you realize that you are in a special place. Upon arrival, the employee at the front desk offered us sparkling wine, which was very nice.

We got the traditional room, it was almost like it was built into the hill. Most of the rooms don't have a direct view to the Caldera, but honestly this didn't bother us at all. It was like a 8-step walk to see the most incredible view you've seen in your life. The pool is small, it reminded me of an apartment pool in a major city, but it was still refreshing to cool off for a bit.

The staff was very kind and helpful, they were friendly and engaged us in conversation. The hotel provided us a ride to the port, as well as the airport pickup, so you won't have to worry about that at all. They also arranged for us to rent the ATV...they let us know when the ATV was there, and they handled its return.

The breakfast we had at the hotel was the best breakfast we had for our entire stay in Greece. Its fresh and tasty and far superior to most hotel breakfasts. The best part of breakfast, of course, was the view...you haven't had a breakfast like this before. They let you customize what you want from a selection of many items, and they will have it ready for you at a time of your choosing.

As for the walk up the stairs back to the main road...yeah its a small hike and its easy to get lost going up, but its over with in a couple minutes. You're on a volcanic island, you're gonna walk up some hills.

Overall I would completely stay at this hotel again, if I am lucky enough to return to Santorini. Top-notch

Although the climb is long, it is well worth the effort! My daughter and I loved the jacuzzi suite and the service was impeccable !
Definitely would stay there again!
I am looking forward to returning.

Had a fabulous time on our honeymoon at Mill Houses. We booked the traditional suite but were lucky enough to get upgraded free of charge to the Mill House suite - it was incredible! The views are amazing and the rooms are so unique, built into the mountain with the lovely white washed look. The pool is small but there was never a problem using it, there were plenty of sun loungers too. The service was fantastic, apart from the upgrade, it was the small things - chocolate muffins at night, a free bottle of sparkling on our final night, the complimentary airport transfer etc that made you feel so special. The location is perfect, 10 min walk to the busier Fira (and its a lovely walk too with amazing views) and Firastefani itself has some lovely restaurants to explore. About a 20min walk to Imerovigli which while nice doesn't have the same vibe as Fira/Firastefani, it is much quieter (and more expensive!). Would definitely recommend the hotel!!

Room Tip: We were lucky enough to stay in the Mill House suite which was amazing - we felt very spoilt! Having...
