Reviewed 31 December 2013

Mill Houses is a hotel in a good distance from Fira, close to restaurants, bars and cafes but not so close as to be bothered by the noise. Our room had an amazing view and was the ideal place to enjoy our breakfast every day. The staff was very friendly and available at all times to satisfy every request. They helped us organize a cruise to the volcano and a visit to the ancient Thira. They also recommended very nice restaurants and places to have fun in general.
The 10 days we spent in Santorini were some of the most beautiful of our lives and Mill Houses was one the nicest hotels we've ever stayed.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and wish it could've been a memorable stay.
I contacted the hotel in advance about their airport teansfer. The e-mail communication was smooth cinfirning our pick up.
As soon as we exited the airport we saw the driver holding the Mill Houses sign.
The drive was about 15 mins to get to the hotel. I have to agree with other reviewers who said the steps to the hotel is challenging, especially in the rain.
We booked a junior suite room and found that its size is smaller that we had expected. 
The bathroom was also small and there was no shower curtain, so the floor was very slippery after we showered. 
Our room had a large window facing the caldera, and the view was unbelieveably amazing.
The breakfast is another special treat. We filled out a sheet with our choice of breakfast menus and they brought it into our room every morning. 
The hotel restaurant was closed for the season and the nearest restaurant is in downtown Thira. Thankfully, Simos Taverna (about 5 mins walk) was a great place to get food.
Our impression of the hotel was, super friendly staff, great location and view, what a breakfast.
It could've been a better experience if the bathroom was updated, had continous running hot water, staff had some suggestions for food delivery since the restaurant was closed, tv can be upgraded and had strong signals, and though the internet was free, the bandwidth was poor.

Additionally,  I can't recommend anyone come to Santorini in December. During our stay, most of the restaurants, cafes, and small shops were closed for the season.
I'd say about 50% of the hotels were also closed and not open until April. If you are expecting to capture glimmer of lights in the evening, you will just see dark builldings.
I had high hopes to capture images of this most renown Greek island, but the weather was so horrible. Cold, windy and rain.
The local bus was easy enough to get to go around the Island. It was also the least expensive transpiration. However, due to low season,  it goes every 2 hours.
If you decided to get a taxi,  they didn't use the meter. Make sure you negotiate the price before you get in. Ask your hotel for the current rate. 
I'd agree that the view of the caldera was unbelievably amazing.

Dear guests,

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Ιt is really pleasant to accept reviews which are designed to help us be better in the future for you. The individuality of the caldera in addition to the hotel's location is what primarily determines the size of the rooms. We have tried to take advantage of every inch of the rooms on the benefit of our guests in order to make your stay as intimate as it can be. We wish you the best and hope to welcome you in the future during the Greek summer period so you can have much more options during your visit.

Τhe Mill Houses team.

Santorini is one of my "must visit places". So we chose Santorini for our honeymoon trip.
When we arrived they pick us up, carried our big luggages down the stairs to the hotel..
The staff was very helpful. they helped us to rented a car, setting up the table for dinner, they gave us useful information, etc.
Our room was perfect. We enjoyed sunset almost everyday at our balcony. Amazing sunset, amazing view, it was just perfect for our honeymoon.
Totally recommended!!

Santorini is one of the most romantic places in the world with a large number of good hotels to stay which makes the choice difficult. The Mill Houses is definitely one of the best and safest options where what you see is what you get. I can say that the hotel staff “pampered us” and made us feel very comfortable as if we were at home. Transport from and to the port was done by what hotel. After our request they adjusted the breakfast according to our eating habits and needs- something I don’t remember to have met in another hotel. It was very good - everything was fresh and delicious.
As for the sunset-it was unique. Great colors and images that stay forever in your mind and heart. And all this from the private terrace of our suite! The swimming pool and the room were very clean. We enjoyed professional body treatments and had great cocktails by the pool. We even had an unforgettable sailing tour around the island where we got to visit the volcano-the hotel organized it for us. Overall Mill Houses made a really good impression!

We have always dreamed of travelling to Greece and especially Santorini. That is why we chose Santorini for our honeymoon. After too much searching and consideration we chose Mill Houses for our stay and we must admit that the choice was right.

Our room was wonderful-we enjoyed almost every sunset from our private terrace as well as beautiful dinners by the candlelight. We tasted the food at the restaurant of the hotel and it was exquisite! Since we're both lovers of good wine we couldn’t help by trying Mylos Restaurant wines. It has a very good wine list- try the local wines they are quite well. From the hotel they helped us organize a visit to some local wineries – a pleasant experience. They also gave us useful info and tips on where to go and how to know the island better.

The massage services were also very good. I tried the holistic massage and my husband Shiatsu. Deeply relaxing.

Very friendly staff, amazing view, inspired dishes, very beautiful suite.

It was an unforgettable honeymoon.

This is one the hotels which gave me eternal peace and happiness. I wish i could just be there, be with myself, and just glee.. It was as perfect as it could be.

The staff makes you check-in with perfect smile and simplicity and style. They help you with luggage right from the airport till your wardrobe. The passion these guys have is amazing. The Hotel makes themselves very clear about the policies which re well documented in the intro magazine.

The rooms are so cozy, bright, and classy, that it will always be in my memory. The small kitchenette makes you feel home, the room in the cave, is like sense of safety and cuddled in nature. Inspite of begin in cave / look alike, all the modern facilities are strictly in place. At any point you will not feel that the things are compromised.

The view from the room is one of the most beautiful views i have ever seen in my life. I am sure, that i would rarely get an opportunity to see such a beautiful view in my life more.

The gentleness and warmth they prepare the morning breakfast, and serve for you just outside the room. Every small thing was just fantastic. I wish i could just be there once more at least. ( i missed to enjoy the seasonal time of santorini, so i will wish to return for sure)

Room Tip: The rooms at the pool level are good, the room at the middle level with private pool is also very ni...

We stayed in this hotel during our honeymoon in mid october (stayed in the Honeymoon suite). It was a cave-like room & very spacious! The balcony we had was overlooking the Aegean seas. Such a breathtaking view! Service and the staff was so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay so much. It was like a 15 minutes walk from the Hotel to Fira town, a place where you can buy lots of souvenirs.
