A truly relaxing small hotel where the staff (including the owner) were so friendly and helpful. Clean, simple and basic but everything you need for a relaxed feel. 20 minute walk down to the beach where there are some nice bars and restaurants. (We went in September but I can imagine that in the height of summer it gets very busy and there is a strip of bars etc which we avoided.) The 2 minute stroll into the village where there were so many fabulous eateries. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. My only negative comments about the hotel are perhaps the breakfast would be improved - disappointed with the fruit selection (and sometimes quality) and the coffee was awful! Perhaps individual cafetieres of coffee would be a simple solution. Perhaps also the bathroom could be modernised - a little dated and tired looking.
Overall I came away from a week of sitting by the pool feeling very relaxed. I would definitely return.

We've arrived at the hotel during midday and as such had no trouble checking in. The staff was very pleasant and showed us around the whole complex. Fortunately we had an amazing view from our rooms, which is not the case for all villas. The rooms themselves were of basic standards, hardly fitting for a 4 star resort. However last thing we wanted to do is spend our entire holidays in a resort so it did not bother us so much. The next morning we gotten an amazing surprise - kittens!!! The whole island is swarming with stray cats but as soon as we opened the doors in the morning we were welcomed by curious young cats. Quickly we went to the supermarket and bought some cat food and pretty soon we had a whole group of cats to play around with. I haven't seen them being very intrusive so unless there is a sound of cat food rustling in your room, they should leave you well alone, but for us it was a massive treat to care for all those cats. One minor inconvenience we've encountered was that even though we requested one double bed, we had two single ones. The receptionist said that this did not show on their end and it was only a request which the hotel did not have to meet, which I've found a bit unprofessional, however he was very keen to sort us out the next day, as the hotel was fully booked, no hard feelings. Overall this was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel to everyone looking for a fair-priced hotel in a very good location and a must if you love cats

This hotel is unique, but very interesting and pleasing! We were upgraded due to my husbands height. We needed a bed with no foot board. We were on the top floor....had a beautiful sunny deck...perfect for March sunshine! We looked out on snow covered mountains , a lemon tree, old buildings and roofs. And we could get a glimpse of the Fort! Very special for we two Canadians. Beds were comfortable, towels and supplies very nice. Breakfast included, down around the corner, was wonderful! Made to order, fresh orange juice, lots of bread, honey, special butter, yogurt topped with thyme and honey, eggs your way, and lots of lovely coffee. All of the staff treated us so well. English was spoken . A. Historic hotel.....an amazing experience!

"Very well located quirky hotel in the town centre"
Lovely hotel with amazing staff who were very friendly and helpful. Great location right in the middle of the old town. Loads of lovely restaurants within a very short walking distance, about 15 mins walk to the beach. We were upgraded to a lovely room with a great balcony.
The bathroom arrangement was bizarre with the shower screen in the wrong place so the floor got soaked every time you used it. The pool is quite small so don't expect to be able to swim really, and you can't really sit by it - but then this is situated right in the middle of the old town in a beautiful old building so space is v limited.
