September may be at the tail end of the summer but the week we have just spent in Kefalonia has been one of the most pleasant breaks we have ever had. The main reason for that? The Summery Hotel. A perfect location with perfect staff, so much so that within hours of arriving we felt as though we were among... More

We have just returned from a week's stay at Hotel Summery. From the minute we entered the small reception area, we were blown away by how friendly, helpful and cheerful all the staff were. The hotel itself could do with a bit of an update but all in all,definitely worth another visit.

Being a Trip Advisor addict (!) I had read just about every single review before deciding that this was the hotel for us. So, armed with all this knowledge (and very high expectations), we arrived at the Summery on 8th September and found it all to be true! The staff really are the most friendly, helpful, polite, courteous people and... More

The staff at the Summery were without exception, friendly, polite and helpful. I have never met nicer people than the Kefalonians anywhere in the world and that is the single reason we have visited the island twice this year! we could learn a lot from them. The Summery is clean and tidy and everything works just as it should. The... More

Dear guests, we are really happy you appreciated our hotel and the " Greek side of Kefalonia". Lixouri is indeed recognised even among the locals as the most untouched and typically Greek town in Kefalonia, so your judgement was pretty right! Another thing in your review that made us really happy and proud, not just as hotel owners but as... More
