It was an absolute delight to stay at this gorgeous little hotel which was originally the home of Captain George Potamianos. In 1973 it was repurchased by his family and who restored it as a hotel.
It has a very interesting history. In the reception area there is an enlarged photo showing the visit of Princess Marie Bonaparte in 1912 after the town was liberated from the Turks in 1912. There are many pictures of the Captain's sailing ships and an attractive lounge/library. It is beautifully furnished using antiques of the period, tasteful modern soft furnishings and very comfortable beds. It is absolutely spotless.
Our stay was split into two - six nights - followed by a week away - and then one night. We were very touched to find a handwritten card saying 'Welcome home' on our return.
The staff looked after us very well, and organised taxis for our visit to the archaeological site and museum. Unfortunately it was too late in the year [end September/early October] for us to participate in the locally organised trips to places of interest. We hope to go again and take advantage of these.
There are many tavernas and bars - a wide choice of eating places. The hotel has two bicycles which guests may use.
