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

Dear Martha, I am speechless! How come you have managed to see things exactly the way I had them consieved back in the times when I was only dreaming on how and what I would like to create. You have captured my soul and you have analyzed my mind. What better way to communicate with a fellow human being. Thank... 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

We stayed for 4 nights with our 2 teenage daughters. Katerina was good enough to meet us at midnight off the long bus/ferry journey from Athens and gave us a reviving soup on arrival. The rooms were an incredible passage back in time. Full of memoirs from an earlier Greek age inherited from generations of Katerina's forbears. A lovely setting... More

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is very good in several aspects – the quality of rooms, meals and above all – the warm hospitality of Katerina and Barry. Katerina initiated a complete operation to support our trip's goal – to memorize an occasion that took place 60 years ago. Her energy and very good spirit... More

Wow. I did not know what exactly to expect when I visited George Molfetas museum hotel in Faraklata. What I had planned was a relaxing getaway with my mademoiselle. I had hope to find somewhere charming, romantic, & one of a kind. I was not disappointed. I searched on the internet for such a place on Kefallonia. I discovered George... More

My friend and I read all the reviews and thought surely this is too good to be true... BUT it's not... This is an amazing retreat in the hills of Kefalonia...It is quirky and charming filled with amazing artefacts and crammed with history...But what makes it so special is the personal link the artefacts have with Katerina...and she and Barry...

There are no words to frame all the sentiments that flow within me when I read reviews like this. I feel the enormity of responsibility to make more people happy and rejuvenated and "spoilt" but then, in this I find the true meaning of my existense. I am serious! When I consived the idea of the "George Molfetas" I thought... More

We knew right from the start, as soon as Katerina and Barry came out of the front door to greet us that this would be unlike any other hotel experience : simply because we felt more like being at home than in a hotel (even though one gets all the comfort and privacy of a 5-star hotel). Katerina's impeccable sense... More

This is one of the most unusual places I have ever reviewed for Tripadvisor. The value of this place is the absolutely fantastic food that Katherina cooks (the best food we have eaten in Greece), as well as the emotional personal relationship one develops with the owners of the hotel, Katherina and Berry. In this respect, to me, this is... More

This was our second visit to this little gem of a hotel and we plan on returning again next year. Katerina and Barry excelled themselves yet again and made our stay truly memorable.

If you want your stay in Kefalonia to be special and something to treasure then this is just the place. You will be greeted by the beautiful, warm and welcoming smiles of Katerina and Barry.
