The Lambros Hotel is an authentic Greek base for a holiday to Samos. The exterior styling is rustic, with terracotta roofs and whitewashed walls. Inside, the bedrooms are kept simple with tiled floors and hardwood furniture. Plus, there are only 10 of them, so there’s a personal feel made even better by the friendly hosts.
At the back of the hotel, there’s a decent-sized pool that’s flanked by a handful of loungers and sunflower-yellow parasols, while plants in bloom add a pop of colour. Breakfasts are a continental affair, so expect a great spread of treats! Some of the produce is homemade, too.
