Reviewed 9 November 2016

Stayed here recently and were happy with the overall experience. This is a great value guesthouse 5 mins walk from a long beach and the village centre. Easy to find with regular bus service all day long. Clean, en suite (small baths) and reasonable size for 40 EURO per night. Nice little touches like fresh orange juice upon arrival, free WiFi, free safety box in each room, free boarding pass printing and plenty of excursion options. The owner and all team are friendly and welcoming.
Amazing value, highly recommended and if we return to Crete, we will certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to get those facing the pool

My wife and I had a lovely time at Summer Lodge for 2 weeks in September 2016. The rooms are very comfortable and the refrigerator is an added bonus. We had some lovely walks around the area but spent most afternoons lazing by the pool. Vassilis and Rebecca were such friendly hosts and nothing seemed too much to help us have a lovely time. Vassilis is very knowledgable regarding the island and is eager to offer advise. We would recommend Summer Lodge to anyone seeking a quiet relaxing holiday away from all the hustle and bustle of larger resorts but within easy walking of many good restaurants. We've already booked for next year.

Room Tip: Upper rooms have a nice balcony

Myself and my mother stayed at Summer Lodge for 2 weeks and had an amazing experience! The family who run and own Summer Lodge were extremely welcoming and went out of their way on countless occasions to make our time in Crete extra special. The rooms were roomy and clean and each had a space outside to sit and have your morning coffee. We were offered fresh fruit such as grapes and oranges from their own garden which was a lovely touch.
It is close to the beach, just a short walk away and there is a bus stop which runs frequently just 5 minutes away, which takes you to many towns and cities such as Chania.
You can book many amazing tours through Summer Lodge and they have lots of information at hand if you have any questions.
We had an incredible time exploring Crete, somewhere I've always wanted to visit, but I owe such an amazing and special overall experience to Summer Lodge, Stamatis, Vassilis, Revekka, Athena and Maria the maid.

Thank you for making our stay so special :)

I would definitely recommend staying with Summer Lodge.
Im already looking forward to going back!

Just back from a week at Summer Lodge; very peaceful and quaint guesthouse, the owners Vassillis & Rebecca were welcoming and helpful. Local beach at the end of a little lane, very picturesque and quiet. Bus service to busier resorts easily accessible and less than 2 Euros.
Its simple, authentic & lovely

Room Tip: some rooms have a shared balcony so if you want a private one ask

From the moment we arrived at the Summer Lodge until the time we left the staff was amazing, always cheerful and helpful despite working long hours. Our room overlooked the orange grove and the swimming pool was simply furnished but there was a fridge, a safety box and a cooling fan. Free Wifi was much appreciated. The room was cleaned, bed linen and towels changed twice a week. Thanks for organizing our excursions and transfer to the airport. An amazing, relaxing week at a highly recommended guesthouse.

Room Tip: Upper floor if you want more view. Rooms on the ground floor enjoy cooler evenings

Friendly greeting with a glass of fresh orange juice from the owner as we arrived which made us feel welcome. Rooms were basic but the whole place was clean and we had cleaning with fresh towels and linen twice a week. There is a little fridge to keep your drinks cool and free WiFi available. The cooling fan in the bedroom was also welcoming. Very nice pool and a garden bar were breakfast is served. 5 mins walk to the beach and a choice of restaurants around the place. Convenient bus service until late at night and despite all these articles on the media about the financial or the refugees' crisis, allow me to say that they are just stories as it is fun and perfectly safe the whole destination. I would return to this guesthouse and would recommend a visit to my friends. The owners are exceptionally nice and make you feel very welcome at all times. They even printed out our boarding passes for free. Thank you for the tour arrangements and the lovely stay !

Room Tip: All rooms are fine, those on ground floor are a bit cooler.
