“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. The décor could do with updating, but it is lovely and clean. The bedroom could be described as the same. I had booked a studio via the tour operator, but this hotel does not supply studios (this is a matter I have to take up at this end with tour operator), no fault of the hotel. There is a lovely, spotlessly clean pool and nicely kept gardens. The only annoying thing is the Cockerel seems to be awake most of the night and day! I would return to this hotel again. The village is very pleasant with a nice choice of eateries.

Room Tip: No studio's available. Most of the rooms seem to be supplied with a fridge, kettle & mugs...

I spent a week at this hotel in Spet 2013. Upon arrival we were given a ground floor room small facing the side of the next building no view, I spoke to the manager and asked if we could move to an upper floor although we had a straight no choice booking he moved us the next morninig to the second floor room with a balcony.

The local village has a few resturants all documented on Trip Advisor. I found it had probably the best gym ever in Rhodes Isalnd in Pastida for those who want to train, it was huge with everything in loads of machines etc. The Hotel is out the way but ideal if you want quiet and a safe location, saying that Rhodes Town and Falaraki are 5 miles ish away and about 18 to Lindos I hired a Jeep from the hotel delivered to the door hassle free.

As the airport is near but costly in a cab like 20 Euros for a 10 min drive you would be best to hire from the airport booking in the UK before you leave. The airport is near but no real aircraft noise.

The pool and hotel is superb for the money and the food is basi for breakfast but nice however the menu for other meals is very good for a small hotel run kitchen, and cheap.

This is a simple location but well kept and very relaxing, not for the young uns and the adge group was pretty much 40s upwarss on average and 95% Brits with a massive return business peopel coming back for years and years.

The only thing I can say is a pain is if you are facing the rear gardens there is an olive grove with chickens where you get the eggs everyone rages about, with a number of Cockerals who start about 4am!! but as a seasoned traveller the old ear plugs sorted that out.

The rooms are simple but clean with regular towel and sheet changes, The atmosphere is very very relaxed and I found the staff more than helpful and did all I asked.

The manager does his best to help or did in our case.

I would stay there again but ask for a pool facing room on the sencond floor (of 2) down the far end.

We had a great trip I recommed you hire a vehicle and start out at Lindos and explore the numerous beaches all the way back to Pastida.

Thanks fro a great stay.......

Room Tip: Pool facing room upper floor far end numbers 77/78 i think or upper floor far end facing gardens.

Myself and my boyfriend are in our early 30's, and for our first holiday together wanted a nice quiet, relaxing and value-for-money hotel. We made a great choice. The minibus transfer to and from the hotel felt very personal, and made us feel very welcome from the start. At €15 each way it was also cheaper than a taxi and took the worry of getting one away, taking only 10 minutes from the airport. On arrival to our hotel, we were greeted by the oners with a complimentary beer, very welcome after a flight! The whole feel of the hotel is very relaxed and friendly, and they all go out of their way to make any request possible. The room was clean and comfortable, and we were given a room overlooking the pool as requested via email. No tv but not a problem as there was a tv in the bar area. we were here between 21-28 sept, and we were lucky to have temperatures of 28-34º and a locely warm wind. The food was amazing cooked by their 5* chef, and large portions on the whole. Free entertainment was provided most evenings, (even the staff took part!) and excurtions to the beach and local towns, faliraki, rhodes and the water park, for a small fee. We were made to feel very welcome and would definately return here. Its a beautiful hotel, lovely large pool and fresh eggs and produce for meals grown on their own land. Hopefully see you next year, a special thank you to Jenny and Eugene.

I always believe in being positive where I can and there is no doubt that the staff and management at the Garden Hotel are first class. In common with most Greek hotels, the accommodation is quite basic but sufficient for our needs and the addition of a kettle and fridge was a nice touch.Towels are a bit rough, although it was nice to see the bed linen being washed and aired.and we had the novelty of a double bed. Shower was adequate, toilet was typically Greek.

Our room, 76, is to the rear of the hotel which backs onto one of the main roads in Pastida and is therefore quite noisy until late in the evening and often into the early hours.Despite what others have said, the sound of aircraft taking off is noticeable and can disturb your sleep, even with the doors shut.

The biggest let-down for us however was the location. We like to explore the places we visit and despite the fact that the hotel do their own trips, they weren't sufficient for us and the local bus service is at best patchy.

We did however have a great holiday by hiring a car through the hotel for four days, so we could come and go as we pleased.

The food was pretty good but not great. The best part of the breakfast was the fresh eggs laid by their own chickens. Yummy. Evening meals again were pretty good, but I had better elsewhere.

Entertainment laid on by the hotel is standard British pub fayre ie bingo and quiz twice a week and karaoke once a week, together with a traditional night of Greek dancing with the accompaniment of a bouzouki and a keyboard player.

There are two pools to the rear of the hotel, neither of which we used on our visit - I prefer swimming in the sea. A pool table and air hockey table are also available, together with swings for the children.

It is quite apparent that many guests return year after year to sample the hospitality but,
unfortunately, despite the best efforts of the staff, the Garden is not for me.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool, as my perception is that these rooms were quieter, although you may...

Me and my wife are in our mid 20's and wanted a relaxing week in the sun, and this hotel was ideal. It's a 17 euro taxi ride from the airport and takes around 10-15mins.

The village of Pastida is a lovely little place with enough to keep you entertained. There's a few nice restaurants, cafes, bars and a cool cake shop too. It takes about 5 mins to walk there from the hotel.

The hotel is well maintained and clean and has everything you need. It's basic but if you're after a week in the sun it's all you will need. Our room had a fridge (no charge), shower, air con is 7euro a day or 30 for the week charge, but our room had a fan and it was mid september so we didn't need it. (Was about 28c most days) We also had a balcony with a table and 2 chairs.

The pool area is quite big and the pool has a diving board and it is deep enough to use, 2.5m.
The hotel does grow a lot of it's own fruit and also have hens, which was something different!

There's free wifi in the bar area, the bar had a good selection of spirits and the hotel restaurant did good 3 course meals for 10 euros per person. The hotel also has a minibus which takes you to places like rhodes town, falaraki beach and lindos for a small fee on certain days.

We took the service bus to rhodes town which was only 4.60 euros each way or two of us and took about 40mins. The bus stops opposite the hotel and the hotel tell you the timetable.

Rhodes town is well worth a visit, especially the old town which is stunningly beautiful with loads of great restaurant to choose from.

Overall, a great holiday for what we paid. It's not luxury but it has everything you need. The friendly atmosphere, nice surroundings and staff make it a really great place to stay and we would go back there again.
