Velani Country Hotel - Crete

Sun and Riding

5 star rating   15 May 2022

Louise who has been on 16 In The Saddle rides. Superb | The riding was brilliant with enough faster paced riding. The horses were well cared for and in good shape surprisingly for the terrain. The guides were fantastic. The accommodation exceeded expectations. The hosts were immensely warm and welcoming, the food just kept coming.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Food was delish the portions were too big TBH, though we had a good go at eating what was put in front of us.
My suggestion for increasing revenue would be to have some imported wines for sale. I understand the ethos of serving local produce but Velani could generate more revenue as the local wine does not suit everyone.
