The Hotel Paleo Inn looks out over the sea, is a 5-minute walk from the beach, and is near a selection of tavernas and restaurants. There's a pool surrounded by lemon trees, too.
The Hotel Paleo Inn offers up some beautiful views. The property overlooks Paleokastritsa Bay, its harbour and the Ionian Sea. The hotel’s communal balcony is a great place to sit in the sun and watch the boats come and go.
Location-wise, the hotel is in a great spot. It’s just a five-minute walk to the beach, where there are watersports available and the sea is great for snorkelling. The property is also 15 minutes from Paleokastritsa’s harbour area, with its waterside restaurants and tavernas.
Outside, a kidney-shaped pool is surrounded by a sun terrace and sunloungers and the whole scene is backed a green garden full of lemon trees.
When it comes to food, the hotel serves a Greek continental breakfast in the morning and snacks throughout the day.
We were slightly disappointed upon arrival, you build a picture up in your mind by looking at pictures, but the Paleo Inn is squeezed back off the main road between other guest hotels and just looks a little neglected, signs with painted over previous messages and worn out green carpet leading you up a steep slope. Our room on the first floor had a balcony with a view of a stone wall and thoroughfare access for those staying on the second floor. Numerous scrawny I'll cats parade up and down this thoroughfare,
We had aircon, for an addition 6 euros a day, however some rooms don't have any aircon which was a surprise for some guests!
The rooms are small and basic as you can expect in Greece. All rooms have a fridge which is a nice touch. The cleaning regime did seem a little lacks, not much evidence of a good sweep but bins emptied and beds made. Our room always seemed to have a distant urine smell to it!!
The breakfast is poor, the standard is two pieces of toast with a sachet of apricot and strawberry jam and butter, watered down orange juice but the bonus, PG tips tea. If you want more such as scrambled egg you have to pay. This is served up on patio tables outside, weather permitting by the not very happy in the morning staff.
Be warned if you don't like sharing your holiday in a hotel with all other English, then this WON'T suit you. There are English football flags dotted around the bar area, with a large number of guests seeming to be returnees who enjoy many hours within the lounge and bar area.
The sun beds on the first floor sun terrace that were once white are dark grey, a joke with guests who have visited before as the management have apparently being saying they will replace them for a number of years.More

Basic bed and breakfast
After reading the reviews on trip advisor I knew what to expect. The Paleo Inn is a basic bed and breakfast , could do with a bit of tlc but it's clean with very friendly staff it had a great pool with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas . Paleokastritsa is a beautiful place , stunning views , and fabulous restaurants. Unfortunately we had a lot of rain which was disappointing but we had a nice time non the less. More

Great time was had at the Palio inn very basic but we new that, the staff were very friendly and helped to make the hol, met some great caricatures. Palikastretsa is a beautiful place with amazing views around every corner. The pool area is very quiet with plenty of beds all day long, breakfast and snaks are good, remember to budget for the air con its around 6.50 euro per day, you will need it in peak season. On the down side the wasps which there were plenty of spoiled most meal times and the mosseys spoild my legs lol, still had a fantastic time and looking forward to next year, see if we can get a smile out of Nicos befor 10am, and get Spiro to pay for a round.
