I was in other Greek Islands, each one has something special, but the beauty of Crete is that it has many assets and qualities, so you can choose different kind of holiday according to your will! You can choose between outstanding seasides and hidden...

We had a lovely week at Orestis in August. Clean, great views and a good restaurant nearby. We rented a moped, which was helpful as the hotel is located up the hill. The owner was very friendly and helpful.

We recently stayed at Orestis for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is perfectly situated in the quiet neighborhood of Stalos, which is about 10 mins from Chania town. The rooms at Orestis are very neat and simple with a view of Stalos from one end and a view of the pool area from another. Great pool...

Having just returned after spending a week at the Orestis Hotel I can thoroughly recommend. The owner Plantos is one of the most helpful “hoteliers” I have ever had the pleasure of meeting on holiday. He could not do enough to make us feel both welcome and make the most of our time on Crete – his advise on what...

Initially, we were concerned that the location would be an issue but we thought we would give it a try for a couple of nights and ended up staying for 5! There are 6 buses throughout the day that pass the door to Chania and the 1800m walk to the beach and main road for more frequent buses is no...

Just returned from our 2 weeks stay at this little gem. It's located well away from the touristy bits which suited us both fine. Both balconys (yes 2) had wonderful views.

We spent a week at the Hotel Orestis and had a truly memorable holiday. The room had a sea view and was modern and clean.
