It is modern and expensively fitted, and they offer free transfer to and from the port, but they really don’t seem to understand the product, and the needs of guests.
Mina collected us, and showed us the room, then left, saying if we wanted anything her parents would be upstairs. They were very nice, but are elderly and only speak Greek, and this simply is not OK in the hospitality industry.
A lot of money had been spent on the room, eg very expensive double glazed doors, huge flat screen TV, fancy light fittings, furniture that was of good quality, but why put a king size bed in a very small room? We kept bumping into each other trying to get around it. One of those doors kept clashing with the wardrobe door. No proper thought had been given to utility for guests.
The location is really not good at all. It's less than 10 minutes walk from the town centre, but the last 100 metres are up a long narrow access road that is very dark at night, and along which cars drive too fast.
It says they accept Visa, but only with the greatest reluctance.
Unfortunately we think you would be best to try somewhere else.
