Veláni Country Hotel - Crete

Experience Level

Sun and Riding

5 star rating   2 July 2019

The riding guide at Velani was great. We were able to go out in a small group of just me and two friends all of similar riding ability. This meant we could explore more terrain and had some great challenging rides.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

This small family hotel was really lovely. All staff were so friendly, food was excellent. Especially liked the fact you could select off the main menu rather than it being a set menu for those on riding holidays.

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

The only thing would be to ensure that the final balance can be paid using a credit card especially if one person is paying on behalf of a group. Although Lucy did sort it for me which was much appreciated.
