It's hard to say anything different to all the others reviews, as I agree with everything that's already been written. This is such a special, wonderful place to stay. Never had a more comfy bed and pillows anywhere else. It is a haven of peace and tranquility made all the more wonderful by the amazing Katerina and Barry. This is... More

Hotel Museum George Molfetas feels like a secret waiting to be discovered. The sort of place you can’t wait to tell your friends about. Spread the word. “You really must stay here!” Concealed up a narrow lane beside the church in Faraklata hidden behind a heavy wooden door you will find a delightful sanctuary of such rare charm. The allure... More

We were for days thinking and discussing the fascinating morning before you left: we could have stayed for ever and talk, talk about so many things! It seemed unreal that we had just met some days ago. So much of common ground-even Wales, would you believe!!!! We thank you with our minds and souls for the lovely times we had... More

I am a loss to find the right words to describe this wonderful hotel and the impact our stay has had on us.

I am still discovering the beauties of Greece, but I can say that after experiencing the warm and friendly welcome of Katerina and Barry, the level of excellence will be difficult to reach for any other places. What to say... excellent food, home made, precious advises on where to go, interesting and captivating discussions around some good Cephalonian wines... I... More

Katerina and Barry couldn't have made us feel more welcome at their little oasis in the Kefalonian hills. Our room was full of character and the breakfasts in the sunny courtyard were absolutely superb, a real treat! Katerina's wonderful home-made dinners were a treat every night and we felt totally spoiled! Not cheap, and a little bit out of town,... More

Dearests, How divine to get a warm review right in the heart of winter. It was a boost for my usual uncertainties and the winter blues. We do not live without all of you, our "kids", to cook for, to love and care. Thank you, thank you, again and again. Love, Katerina and Barry More

Far away from the tourist thoroughfares there nestles a hidden gem. The Hotel George Molfetus is a little slice of heaven on this absolutely beautiful island. Tranquil, romantic, secluded, picturesque. This is not the place to come if you want five star hotel facilities - a pool, a gym, nightlife. It is a place to come for those who appreciate... More

Hotel George Molfetas is without doubt a very special place to stay. We stayed there for a week in September and felt we were well and truly spoilt by our hosts Katerina and Barry.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Museum Hotel "George Molfetas" was meant to be a sanctuary for people seeking not only what the eye sees. It is an effort to bring to life the hospitality of the era it represents, the 1890s, which was the all-inclusive model of the luxury guest house. The actual impact on our guests is an immediate sense of being "at home." And this is our ultimate dream: to offer a home to the traveler and the dreamer of our times. ... more   less
