“Family hospitality and a fabulous view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

We stayed at the High Mill for 3 nights as part of a Sun Island Tours island hop package purchased through Flight Centre in Australia.
The High Mill is located just outside the old town of Parikia and a fairly easy walk. We arrived in Parikia by ferry and caught a cab there initially as we had luggage, but after we settled in we generally went into town on foot.

The hotel is a family concern and upon arrival we were met by the daughter Anastasia who speaks great English and took the time to explain the layout of the premises, how to find our way into town, places of interest and how to catch the local buses.

Our room had a fabulous view and was very comfortable although I have to say the bed was somewhat on the firm side, although this seemed to be the case everywhere we went. Despite this I managed to sleep quite well. The room had a combined bath and toilet and is quite small. If you are a larger person, this might not be suitable. Once again, this seemed to be the norm in most of the places we stayed so if you need space, check before you book. As this is not a big issue for us, it didn't detract from our experience in the hotel.

As it was not yet high season, only breakfast was available for us. However I believe that in high season there is a fully functioning restaurant.

Overall, lovely hosts, comfy room and great location.

Went last June and stayed at the High Mill with my husband. First, let me say that what made my stay wonderful was 100% the staff... so nice and accommodating, it was a pleasure chatting with them. The hotel was also really really clean and we loved the view from our balcony of the hotel pool right in front, with the ocean stretching behind it as far as the eye could see. I put 4/5 for the room since the shower stall was a little difficult to navigate (ladies that need to get ready for the beach, keep it in mind!) and sometimes if taking a shower in the evening (but not in the morning) the water was a little cold. Other that that perfect and relaxing stay, and would stay again! :-)

This is a friendly family run hotel with a lovely atmosphere. My room was basic but spotlessly clean, and the view from the balcony spectacular. Room has a fridge, the TV and wifi did not work, but the wi fi in the lobby worked. Four of the six days of my stay there was no hot water. When I asked at the desk they said when the hotel is full there's a problem, and added something about 3 boilers. The next 2 days I had hot water, and after that I didn't. It seems as if they only turn on the 3rd boiler if you say there's a problem. Bed is very hard but not uncomfortable.
If you stay here ask for a room on the top floor. I wouldn't stay here again because hot water's important and I don't enjoy having to ask for it. But the atmosphere and the owners are really very nice. Lovely swimming pool too.

Room Tip: Top floor room, if possible in the extension so you don't overlook the restaurant.

Stayed here for 3 nights in September '13. Hotel is owned by a family, very friendly owners and always ready to help and give advice.
Was a nice hotel with a pool, but nothing fancy. Pool is a little outdated, could use a new lick of paint, but it didn't really bother.
Rooms have airconditioning and were cleaned every day. All of the rooms have a view over the pool and the sea, so you can see the sunset from your balcony every evening.
Shower is very small, even for women.
Breakfast is good, but not much choice or variety. Lovely having breakfast outside on the patio.
The hotel is located just outside of Parikia town, but it just takes you a 10 minutes' walk to get to the center.
Had a wonderful stay here and would definitely go back!

We stayed here in a triple room for 5 nights in sept. the hotel is good value for money and has a lovely pool area. Nice room with fab sea views. breakfast not great and tiny shower cubicles.... which is a common thing in greece! But if like us you are travelling without a car it's probably not the best option. It's about a 15 min walk into the busy part of the port and the walk is on a busy main road.

For the low prices charged by High Mill, you get a lot. Conveniences such as free wi-fi, air-conditioning etc. are all part of the package, and most rooms have awe-inspiring views of the sea and opposite side of the bay. That said, the hotel is not modern, slick, polished or manicured. So if you want new and squeeky clean, this is not where you will find what you're looking for.

Overall, I'd describe the High Mill as old world villa style accommodation. Comfortable and suitable for people who need a base from which to explore Paros.

Friends who live on the island had recommended us high mill because of its location. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by the receptionist and shown to our room which had a spacious balcony and a superb view of both see and pool.
Throughout our stay the service from all the staff was superb, you can really feel they care.
