We travelled on the Orient Express. The Kokkini Porta Rossa beats it hands down.
Totally faultless. We are still in awe of the service received and doubt you could ever find anything better. Bespoke, unique service in a magnificent location.
You have just got to go - amazing!
From the moment we were greeted at the Red Door by Nikos after a very late flight, we knew we were somewhere special. We are well travelled and what Nikos and Angela provide here is a bespoke, unique service providing an individually tailored service that we have never found anywhere else in a magnificent location. You are treated as a member of the family from the moment you step inside the stunning interior. You are welcomed with any type of beverage you require, all free of charge. You are then asked what you want out of your holiday and it seems that everything that you want, Nikos and Angela provide, or know somebody that will organize on your behalf via a network of people that they recommend. This includes very informative personal guides for walking tours which we would highly recommend and restaurants which were excellent. They even go to the trouble of pre-selecting taxi drivers who collect you from right outside the door, which is not easily accessible by vehicle given the location of the property within the walls. Our room was Suite Deniz and it was stunning. Everything you could need and more. Complimentary mini bar with soft drinks and beer. Water every day and tea/coffee with nibbles on the tea tray and in the fridge. Fluffy towelling robes, very nice toiletries and a beautiful copper basin and shower. The bed was on a mezzanine level and was huge and divine. The breakfast is worthy of any high end London hotel and the courses, which are freshly prepared by Angela every day, only stop when you tell her to. Every morning the pastries were different and the coffee was endless and fab! Breakfast is served in a medieval walled courtyard surrounded by beautiful trees, ornaments and furniture hand-made by Nikos. We spent many a morning relaxing there being treated like royalty not wanting to leave. We are very much looking forward to returning next year and cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you Nikos and Angela from Gaynor and Alan xx
