Dropped off on the busy main road with very vague directions from the coach driver & spent 20mins trying to find it!! No fault of the hotel though.... Luckily its on the lower sea road & away from all the noise & traffic. Artemis arrived & gave us a warm welcome - throughout our stay she was very helpful, friendly...

I think she got upset because I cancelled the 1st booking for getting the same room at a lower price, so I found dusty beds as they never cleaned the room in some months and neither they cleaned it during my vacation.

The Hotel Despina is exceptional value for a budget hotel. The staff are lovely, warm and welcoming and the rooms clean and ours even had a balcony. A breakfast of juice, fresh baked bread and preserves is included in the price. The hotel is about five minutes from the beach, in the centre of the town and shares a swimming...

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 5 nights on bed and breakfast. The hotel is very simple and basic but it was basically just our base as we were out most of the day so this was fine. We booked online with Holiday discount centre and we didn't really have any problems with them and it was a smooth...
