We can't rate this hotel highly enough. Everything about our stay was exactly what we'd hoped it would be - in fact it exceeded our expectations! From the moment we arrived we received a lovely welcome. Staff were friendly and went out of their way to be attentive to our needs. The hotel itself was clean. We were concerned before... More

My partner and I had already had our "main" holiday back to Kefalonia in June when we stayed at the Porto Skala Village Hotel. However, as work had been particularly stressful during the summer we decided to go back to our home, Kefalonia, again in September. We had a look round, as you do, and found the Captains House Hotel... More

Have just returned from skala and stayed at the captains house. It's all about the location, only 50 metres from the beach. Yes there are many hotels in skala but if you want old fashioned Greek charm on a bed and breakfast basis then you could not ask for more. There is no pool, but if like myself you prefer... More

I have just returned from a week staying at the Captains House Hotel, Skala. I thought I would write a review as found some of the ones I read on here to be untrue. The staff on our arrival were extremely friendly and helped take our cases to the room. We were in room 44 which we had been warned... More

The Captains Hotel is quite simply, the best place to stay in Skala. Lovely, simple rooms, right by the beach and run by the loveliest family ever. They also have the best bar in Skala - The Captain's Bar, right across the road, where you can drink and chat the night away. We had an amazing week there, and cannot... More

We booked this hotel based on the positive reviews which probably has contributed to our disappointment. While Skala and the island themselves have much to offer the hotel is only ok. Lots can be improved by little means. We had little interaction with the personnel as we ourselves planned our daily outings and trips. On arrival information offered was sparse... More

We had an absolutely fantastic time staying at The Captain's House Hotel! All of the staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room was at the front of the hotel, with two balconies; one overlooking Captain's Bar & the other with a sea view. We never had any problems with noise from the bar,... More
