We stayed at the Melrose Hotel in September and was wonderful. The hotel is located in the street above the main street, which give you a short walk to the beach and promenade, but in a more silent street, only 10-15 mins to walk to the old town and Venetian harbour, fortress. Rooms and apartment was modern clean with very comfortable beds, bathroom with jacuzzi ,balcony with sea view( 3th & 4 th floor). They have a very nice outdoor pool as well as an indoor jacuzzi/pool. The Melrose also has a gym ( We did not use) and spa ( We highly recommend massage). The breakfast has everything I feel is needed (I just wished a little more variety on the local food). But where Melrose really makes a difference is with it's staff. The staff was wonderful, extremely welcoming and super helpful. Everyone is focused on making your stay memorable, from the cleaning lady to the reception desk. Special mention to Manager Konstantinos and Maria on the front desk ( thanks a lot for everything) best staff I've ever experienced. We highly recommend this beautiful hotel. We would love to go back!

We were warmly welcomed by Maria (front desk). She pleasantly answered our tourist questions and provided good recommendations. We got an upgrade for our room and we enjoyed our 3 nights stay. Good service during the breakfast buffet. Loved the variety and quality of the breakfast in our 3 days there. Great location, cross the street to the beach, shops and restaurants. Also has a nice pool area where you can hear birds chirping. Has a small gym, jacuzzi and sauna. Thoughtful of guests by providing departure shower area.

Nice hotel close to the beach! The room was very clean and nice daily service! The bathroom shower needs a bit of an update (the curtain was quite outdated) a nice glass door would make it much better so the water dont go over the floor. Overall, we enjoy the stay!

Hotel: Very well maintained (recently fully renovated) in excellent condition, great facilities, super clean, modern design. Staff: Extraordinary friendly, always willing to help/answer in various requests. Special thanks for the 5+ star services to Maria @ reception. Breakfast: Always fresh, top quality with a wide variety of sweet/salty options. In general: A absolute Value for Money choice in Rethymnon. We will definitely come back and also recommend to everyone.

What a fantastic hotel, the pictures didn’t do it justice. The staff are so friendly and accommodating it’s like you have known them years. Cleanliness is outstanding. The choice of food is unbelievable, nothing missing. I will certainly be back.

The most fabulus hotel we have visited during our holidays in Crete! Clean, modern design, nice location, friendly staff, breakfast variety, nice coffee. Thank you for making my birthday a special day! We will definitely visit you again!

Very good hotel. Nice spacious room, well designed. Helpful and friendly staff. Nice pool area, with poolbar. Good wifi connection.Room cleaning and tiding up, satisfying. Nice location, close to the beach and a ten minute walking distance to the old town. Good breakfast.

The hotel, which has recently been refurbished to a high standard, is a short walk from the beach and about 20 minutes walk to the Old Town.Staff throughout all levels are friendly and helpful, customer focused and work as an effective team. The ambiance is very relaxing. There's a wide choice of fruits, cheeses, cold meats, cereals, breads, pastries plus cooked, The swimming pool is quite small but adequate. If your intention is to train as an Olympic swimmer, this may not be the right hotel for you. Overall, on any criteria, this is the best hotel that we've stayed at in over 20 years

Very good and quality service. The staff at the reception was very cool and friendly, we we greeted with warmth and kindness and given directions on where is the closest supermarket and restaurant located. The personnel was ready to help at any time with any questions. Everyday housekeeping was very quick and at a very convenient time. Blankets, pillows and bedsheets were sparkling white without any stains or marks. The beds were comfy and cozy. A/C was silent and worked really well. In the room there were everything to make tea and coffee, two wineglasses and two regular glasses. In the bathroom shower gel, body lotion, solid and liquid soap. Towels were gigantic and were changed everyday. Breakfast is fine, you could always find something new to try. A walk to the sea will take 2 minutes, near the hotel there are lots of restaurants and supermarkets. CONCLUSION: Very good hotel, we had a great time there!

From 25th of May to 3rd June 2019, we had spent a torrific stay at the Melrose Hotel. This is one of the best hotel we have done so far! The location is perfect: 10 minutes from the city center and really close to the beach. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and the modernity of the establishment: indoor and outdoor pool, sauna, gym (small but very well-equipped). The hotel has been renovated in 2018, and we can see it! Every facility has been made to have a delightful stay in Rethymno. Not to mention the enthusiastic staff! Every time we asked for advices on tours, transfers, restaurants, etc. the staff always provided us with very good tips, allowing us to discover for instance local taverns, far from touristic areas. Constant smile, availability, Cretan hospitality is not a myth in the Melrose! And don't forget the phenomenal breakfast! Local products, high-quality buffet, greek yogurt and honey, etc. We will sure come back to the Melrose where everything is stunning. Ευχαριστώ!! (Efkaristo)
