Stayed here for New Year, excellent location, spotlessly clean, good facilities. Nothing negative to say about the Swiss Chalet. Phil and Maureen were so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble for them. Only stayed two nights and would have stayed longer but there was no availability. If you are looking to stay in Pahia we would highly recommend this place.

I will say that i have never stayed in a cleaner, more presentable older style accommodation in all my travels. The owners Phil and Maureen made my wife and I welcome from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble for the owners or their staff. Dont expect the Hyatt hotel but do expect a comfortable, clean and...

Phil was a most welcoming host. Under cover parking isn't something we come across often. The presentation of the property and grounds was immaculate. Very nice to be given proper milk in a carton. The towels were beautiful.

Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean and well appointed rooms, lovely atmosphere, undercover parking if it had been wet, which it wasn't! Fabulous location close to town. Will recommend this town and this accommodation to others.

Slightly different looking from the typical motel with a style that does look somewhat like a Swiss chalet. Covered and safe parking close to the harbour. All the facilities you would expect plus a "Smart" TV. I was able to share my mobile screen to the TV, streaming news from the UK. The owner let us park there after checking...
