I can only confirm all the excellent reviews of this small boutique hotel. My boyfriend and I stayed at the villa for 5 nights / 6 days in mid-August and had a great time. Our experience exceeded our expectations. If you're looking for an escape from the hectic city life and the office calendar, this is definitely the place for... More

We booked our stay having read the amazing reviews on Tripadvisor - and they are all true! This place is really something special. It seems wrong to call it a hotel; it is more like staying with old friends. Katerina is an amazing woman, warm, welcoming, and an incredible cook, but also well travelled, well read, and a great conversationalist.... More

If you’ve read other feedbacks you must be notice that all of them are full of emotions. It’s really not easy to write feedback about George Molfetos Museum Hotel in down-to-earth style. But I will try! ))) Without doubts it is the best choice as for Cephalonia (and may be as for whole Greece!). Location – 5 min from capital,... More

Katerina's hotel is literally like a dream. She and Barry took care of us like a mother and father would. The most wonderful and gracious hospitality. The most flavorful and healthy home-cooked meals (I am a spoiled foodie, trust me). Awesome conversation. Amazing recommendations and tips for every day of travel. I can't imagine a better place to stay in... More

We just stayed 5 days in this quaint hotel. It was spotless and the owners very welcoming and friendly. The exaggerated media response to the Greek crisis was just that. Exaggerated and we never felt anything but calm and normality in the town centre and cafes and restaurants. We as tourists had no limit to the amount of cash taken... More

An amazing Greek dinner enjoyed together with friends and the host couple made my special day very extra special, indeed. The kitchen enchanted fabulous tastes out of traditional Greek ingredients - lamb and vegetables. Let alone the chocolate cake!! The renovated building, unique rooms and garden has brought Greek history alive. If you are looking for a place which offers... More

Perched on a gently sloping cliff, just ten minutes away from Argostoli, the George Molfetas Museum Hotel keeps alive the spirit of a true Ionian grand home, turning back time to a day when vintage hospitality was the standard. While more recent renovations have renewed with respect to its history and aesthetic its beauty, the Ionian home qualities and philosophy... More

We were a group of friends travelling through Kefalonia and the boys had booked the hotel as a surprise! And what a beautiful surprise! We were first greeted warmly by Katerina and Barry, who were the warmest and friendliest hosts. We got shown around the hotel, and I couldn't decide which room is the most gorgeous as every single one... More
