We stayed at the Garden City Resort for almost 2 weeks recently in a Superior Junior Suite. The suite was delightful, nice balcony, plenty of space within the room, very modern with a lovely bathroom which included walk in shower. One little criticism was that staying for almost 2 weeks storage space for our clothes was quite limited, we had to use both couches to lay most of our clothes on, but it was manageable and didn't cause any issues for us. Breakfast, which was included, was Greek buffet style, which for us was great. The choice was great, including hot and cold meats, salads, cakes, cereal, bread etc, with quite a lot of it home made, which was delightful. Now, for us, the most important and really special aspect of the hotel were the amazing staff. They are a small group of really special people who make a huge effort to do that little extra to ensure your stay is a little special. The fantastic guys and delightful girl on reception were such a great help in arranging laundry, restaurant recommendations, calling restaurants for reservations, arranging taxis, they were all brilliant, so Aris, Panagiotis, Panagiotis (2) and Panagiota, thanks for all your help. Our rooms were cleaned to an extremely high standard everyday, lovely fresh towels, delightful toiletries and fresh crisp sheets. Thank you so much Vaso and Christina is was great to return our suite every afternoon knowing it would perfect for our little afternoon nap. As I said earlier, breakfast is a traditional Greek buffet and Eleni and Stauroula in the kitchen served such delightful treats every morning, especially their home baked little cakes, which I loved to enjoy with coffee every morning, the fresh fried eggs, bacon and sausage but it was the fresh tomatoes, olives and Greek treats we loved most, thank you ladies for setting us up extremely well for the day ahead. Complimenting the delightful cooks were Anna and Olga, who both served and looked after us at breakfast. Wow, they were both brilliant, Anna and Olga thank you so much for making a fabulous cappuccino every morning and for the delightful cup of fresh juice at the pool mid morning to help cool us down. Both of you were brilliant at looking after us at breakfast every morning, thank you so much for going that extra mile to ensure our start to everyday was met with a smile and a cheerful "good morning"! Lastly, thank you Thanasis for looking after us every evening, serving us a cold beer or making a coffee for my parents, it really was appreciated. Thank you to the management of the hotel for looking after us extremely well and for the little treats you arranged almost every evening, we really appreciated this, so another huge thanks. So we are now at home reflecting on a wonderful holiday in Kalamata, a delightful friendly city in Greece but our memories will always be of the Garden City Resort and its magnificent staff who succeeded in making our holiday there extremely special. A huge thanks from all 4 of us!…
Stayed at the Garden City Resort for a couple of nights over New Year's weekend and just had the best time! The hotel is terrific... great location with beautifully appointed rooms and common spaces. The staff is super friendly, professional and went out of their way to assist us with anything we needed. Had dinner at hotel's Saffron Restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We'll definitely return the next time we stay in Kalamata!!
Modern, clean and neat. Very nice swimming pool and terrace where you can take your breakfast which is Greek and excellent , of course there is other thing to eat (croissant, eggs…) The staff as always with Greeks is simply wonderful and friendly. Great experience We will come back surely Hotel is well located by walk you can reach the seaside where you will find gelataria , restaurant, bars…conversely if you want to go in the downtown you will have to take a car or taxi .
Very nice boutique hotel in the city. Great staff, friendly service and modern rooms. Comfortable beds and very clean, with a contemporary design. We also requested laundry service which was fast and returned pressed and clean clothes within 8 hours. We were pleased with our choice!
The staff here were so kind and helpful, the food menu for lunch was delicious and the breakfast buffet was varied and more than sufficient. The hotel itself is kept sparkling clean and the rooms AC was good and we received an upgrade upon arrival because the hotel wasn't too busy when we visited. There was great care taken for implementing covid protection. It is in a good location, just a 5 min walk from the beachfront strip and a brief cycle to the city centre and old town which you can easily do on the bikes that the hotel has for free hire for the day. Would definitely visit again.
Visited the city for one night. Made my staying in Kalamata a pleasant experience mainly because of the extremely professional and kind front desk employees (if I remember well the name of the lady was Dimitra) the rest employees and of course the greeeeeeeeat cleaning conditions of the room.
A lovely clean modern hotel. Very friendly staff, lovely comfy superking size bed and a very good shower in a well appointed clean room. About 5 minutes walk from the sea front in Kalamata where most of the Tavernas and restaurants are. We’d defiantly stay here again when visiting the area. Breakfast was include in the pool side restaurant which was great.
The main entrance of the hotel is located on a busy road so it is not really possible to go out here with luggages. You have to go to the back where the hotel parking is located and then go through the garden and the restaurant with the luggages which is not very convenient. In a 5 star hotel, I also expect to have my luggage being taking care of.. which was not the case. The garden, pool, restaurant, and common areas are all very modern and beautiful. However, we were disappointed with the room. We had a Superior Double Room (for 4 adults). It was in adequation with the pictures but these last ones are a bit misleading. We felt cramped in the room and the decoration was just not in adequation with what we saw in the common areas. The finishings were not on point. The worst part was the cleanliness. Hairs in the bathroom, dirt on the balcony... During a pandemic, the cleanliness should really be perfect, especially for a 5 stars hotel! Breakfast was good. Lots of choices. Shame that fresh juice is extra. From a general point of view, the hotel is alright but it has one or two stars too many.…
Spent 2 nights in this lovely hotel at the end of our fortnight escape from London. Staff were great - special shout out to Eleni who put up with our constant demands x thanks for being so lovely x tbh they were all great & thanx again for the Earl grey tea!
