The guesthouse is a family-run business and the family that owns it is absolutely lovely and extremely friendly, always happy to help or even just chat. Breakfast was a large spread including local produce (some home-made), and the rooms comfortable and tastefully furnished. They also had balconies (ours with a view towards the mountains). Parking and internet were free, and tea (usually with something homemade) was on offer in the afternoons. There were also signs to it from the edge of town, which was helpful.
Impressed with the care taken to create a hotel built in the traditional style and in a high quality fashion. Excellent staff, friendly helpful and proud of their hotel.Excellent dining room with pleasant ambience.

Fantastic! I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Diaz. The Beautiful rolling countryside and coastline reminicent of North Yorkshire on a rare hot day! I made new friends! :)
However, the village is somewhat isolated unless you have access to a car. The slow pace may well suit some.
Unfortunately, the local railway servicing the smaller villages was abandoned some 15 years ago, in favour of the high-speed intercity railway, which is limited to servicing major towns and cites only. The bus service cannot replace the value of rail travel. With parallel to the disasterous mistake the British government made in the 1960's. (See: " The Dr. Beeching Report".)
This lack of funding for local transport can only cripple the economy.
The now defunct village station of Mykrygialos stands proudly as a recent relic of a bygone age.
Though once you find transport, you will unlock a tremendous trip from the coast to Mount Olympus and beyond.
Having looked at the pictures I had high hopes from this hotel but unfortunately it was a let down mainly because the minute we arrived we were told that none of the close by restaurants/bars even the hotel pool were open as the season doesnt start until 20th May.... but we were never told about this when we made the booking!!!
Staff were friendly but could had to call them for service everytime we needed to order something even thought the bar or restaurant was empty.
Having said that Costas the Bar Manager was fantastic and knew what he was doing.
For the price we paid we felt it was a great bargain, especially during high season (beginning of July). The staff were excellent in making us feel comfortable and were very willing to help and answer questions we had about the hotel or surrounding area. Since they had a group coming in one day later than our check out they were VERY willing to give us a late check out to us at no extra charge. The whole experience of finding them online and reserving and paying through Expedia was very easy without any problems. We reserved a apartment for 5 and it had plenty of room with a great big balcony for us to enjoy breakfast on as a family.
