Had such a good time last summer, we returned again this year and we never do that! Staff really pleased to see us and remembered all our foibles. Simple, great friendly feel with all the mod cons you need. Lovely swimming pool and staff

My husband and I stayed in Telesilla for a total of 11 nights when visiting Korfu and Albania this year. We were only supposed to stay there for 5 nights before we went to Albania, and then try another hotel when we came back. Sadly (or lucky for us) the other hotel (Maltezos, check my other review) was so dirty... More

The fact that this family-run hotel has so many repeat guests and diners is testament to the excellent service and value provided by the staff. On a couple of occasions we dined elsewhere but quickly came to the conclusion that we should just stay in the Telesilla rather than settle for second best. Rooms are spotless and well serviced But... More

I stay in many different hotels on business trips all over Europe and this, in my opinion is one of the best. It ain't The Ritz, it's better! To be fair it's not 5 star luxury, but it doesn't pretend to be. What it is is one of the friendliest, if not the friendliest place I've ever stayed. Great food,... More

This is a hidden gem and no wonder people go back year after year. The staff are very friendly and really look after their guests. Rooms are great, good size, in excellent condition and very clean. The only negative about the room was that the shower itself is a bit small. Food is excellent and also great value for what... More
