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

We spent a week at the Captains house from 15th August, first impressions are great, the feel is very comfortable and quite plush but when you actually delve a little deeper there is room for plenty of improvment and based of the cost of £450 for a weeks B&B and constantly full, it's not like they cant afford it!

This hotel is located in a perfect spot to do literally everything you want to. With the average continental breakfast, free wi fi from the bar area and on a quiet but central street, this is a good hotel to spend your time and explore all of Kefalonia from here. 100m from the beach, 200 m to the busy shopping...

I, a 53 year old father, have just returned from a 2 week stay in this hotel, with my 16 year old son. The simple rooms were spotlessly clean and our sheets and towels were changed daily! Great location near to the beach and main street. All staff were friendly and helpful and only too willing to suggest restaurants etc.... More
