We have stayed at Magnolia twice now and will stay there again in 2015. We love Katelios more than any other place we have stayed at, we are beach lovers and don't really use the pool, we hire a car from the airport and drive to the hotel ourselves. We have to book through Thomas Cook who I don't like,... More

Echoing the comments of previous visitors, there is a lot to like and overall a great holiday hotel. But a few things were less good. First, the breakfast. With fresh fruit in abundance at the end of the summer why serve tinned fruit for breakfast? Also, as others have commented, the breakfast coffee is truly terrible. That served at the... More

My husband and I stayed at this terrific hotel, which far exceeds any other 4* hotels we’ve been to in Greece (and we’ve been to many), for two weeks in September. I originally wasn’t going to post any comment because I felt as though the hotel spoke for itself. That being, I was shocked and angered to read the recent... More

I’ve been returning to Kefalonia since I was 10 years old and have stayed in many hotels, villas and apartments but I have finally found a hotel that I won’t return to. The Magnolia is beautiful, spotlessly clean and in a lovely location but it almost feels like guests are not really welcome and that it was more of a... More

Lovely hotel cannot fault cleanliness or furnishings however, I have to agree with a previous reviewer the owners seemed to take an enquiry or question as some kind of complaint. Be warned if you are going on an early morning start excursion take a torch as there is no lighting early on a morning. The hotel and corridors are pitch... More

My wife and I returned to the Magnolia Resort for a second time recently to see if we were just lucky the first time around. Well we think it was even better this second time around. Although it did not start in the best way as we had a full day of heavy rain with the customary thunder and lightening... More

This was our first visit to Kefalonia and to find this gem of a hotel was just the perfect holiday. Ector , the owner, welcomed us and showed us to the room explaining how the air con , electric shutters and room safe worked. The room was beautifully furnished and the bathroom had a wonderful rainfall shower which suited us... More

We stayed at the Magnolia for the first time in September, we found it to be excellent in every way. The family that run the hotel are very approachable and ready to help, the rest of the staff are friendly and very helpful, even when outside of the hotel. As mentioned by others the rooms are spacious and well presented... More

So glad we found this beautiful, tranquil place. If you have a busy, stressful life, and live amongst noisy neighbours, Magnolia and the lovely village of Katelios is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Magnolia is family run and we found everyone to be friendly and helpful from the minute we checked in. Our room was beautiful and kept... More
