We just spent a weekend with our friends, celebrating my wife's 40th birthday in this hotel, which was recommended by friends. We had the birthday dinner prepared by Christos and his team (top class food), and ended up having a dancing party, a perfect night altogether. The owners helped with bookings in nearby restaurants, and provided directions on footpath walks for a group of 14 people, during the weekend. Breakfast is very good, with a constant feeling that they will go that extra mile to satisfy all your needs. The service is immaculate and discreet, the team is very professional; this is not a combination you typically come across in this part of the world, unfortunately (praise to Fotis for his tireless effort).
The hotel decoration is unique, an english countryside lodge, combined with the breathtaking scenery of Pelion. The library room is something we all wish we had at home, a place to spend time conversing with friends over a glass of wine or brandy. If your first priority is a 70 sq metre room with a hot tub, queing up to sign the breakfast register and be seated, this is not the right hotel for you. But, if that is the case, why go to Pelion in the first place.....
We will be going back to this hotel, every year, i believe the same is true for our friends.
Looking forward to the another "excuse" to spend time with friends at the Lost Unicorn.
Keep up the good work Christo and Clare.
Note: do ask about the history of the building when visiting; interesting on how it got its name: Lost in translation......
