Very quiet this time of year........I think we were one of two couples staying there. The proprietor, George, was the perfect host. We spent much time drinking red wine at the bar and talking to him and a friend of...

This is by far the friendliest hotel I have stayed in while touring Cyprus. The owner also gave fantastic advice for where to eat and visit in the Platres area. The hotel feels like a family home, so I will definitely stay here next time I visit the area! Just don't expect a clinical Best-western type hotel when you visit...

An excellent hotel surrounded by pine trees! Feels like home! Excellent service and an enjoyable breakfast! Good vibes, fresh air with amazing view of the nature. Only 20 minutes away from Limassol. The best place to be for a short break from the daily routine! :)

A place i wouldn't recommend and do not want to visit again. The room had no bar, no fan (yes ! it's needed during mid-day), we could not get wifi (the router was probably too far away), two times around midnight pipes or something started to make sound and woke us up, no telephone, the tv was either not programmed...

As always, good to be back for my summer visit to the Troodos mountains, and especially so to one of my favourite retreats, the New Helvetia in Platres. On this occasion, I was combining my 2-night stay with an attendance at ‘The 11th Cyprus Rialto World Music Festival‘ 2-day performances. My accommodation in a Maisonette Suite was great, and the...

The hotel is located in the pine forest above Platres . The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was very good with a good variety of options on the menu. The down side was the shower in the bedroom was almost impossible to use and the fact that used towels were refolded and placed on the bed did not...
