“A fine hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We returned from our stay at the Hotel Telesilla in Ocober with very fond memories. We had chosen it for its proximity to the marina and soon realised why it is such a favourite with the yachting fraternity.

The hotel is very well appointed, clean and comfortable and the staff - wonderful! We happened to be there on the last night of the season for the restaurant and what a great night it was. A buffet was provided for 9 euros a head. The table groaned under the weight of food which was of truly excellent quality. The entertainment was provided by what surely must be one of the best teams of waiters anywhere. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were perennially cheerful and entertaining in their conversation and attention to the wishes of their customers.

If you have occasion to visit this area of Corfu do not hesitate to reserve a room here you will not be disappointed!

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Telesilla on the recommendation of my parents who were there in September.

The public areas were fresh and airy and the rooms were spotlessly clean and well equipped. Ours had been recently renovated and had a balcony overlooking the pool.

The hotel is located an easy 15minute bus ride from beautiful Corfu Town and a five minute walk from the beach and Gouvia marina. It is on a main road but when you are inside it feels peaceful and quiet.

I cannot overstate how friendly, helpful and welcoming the staff at the hotel were. Within an hour we were made to feel like part of the family. Makis and Elizabeth, whose parents own the hotel do a fabulous job of making everyone feel special.

The food was delicious and Yani, the waiter was always able to give advice on what to try. Tomas the barman kept us endlessly entertained with stories and banter while mixing some seriously good cocktails. Elizabeth at reception was wonderful giving us advice on what to do and see on the island. We were even treated to some Greek dancing lessons from Makis!

The hotel's guests mainly come on recommendation, and having spoken to several of them around the bar I discovered many of them return year on year. It was easy to see why and we will certainly be back.

I stayed at the Telesilla for four nights whilst visiting my Mother who was in the nearby Hospital. It became a wonderful home for me during a very stressful time . I was so well looked after by Makis and his family and staff. The food was superb, big portions and fantastic quality. They make their own wine which I very quickly acquired a taste for. Fortunately my Mother had a successful heart operation on the mainland after which we returned to the Telesilla for a further 3 days where we spent a wonderful time together in this little gem of a hotel. I will definitely be returning for another stay.

My partner booked this as it had great reviews in trip advisor, she was not wrong.
After arriving there we were greeted and shown the choice of two rooms.
The rooms were very clean and done daily which I can not fault.
The restaurant was fabulous and very good portions, we never ate any where else at night time as the food was so good here, the staff were fantastic and made the kids more than welcome.
We will definitely go back there, can't wait.
Hotel Telesilla many thanks for your hospitality.

This was are 2nd year we have stayed at this wonderful hotel, the hotel is comfortable and clean with air conditioning. The resturant is the best we have eaten in in all of greece, plenty of choice and the portion size is very generous, the staff deserve particular praise for their helpfulness and attentiveness they give you 5* treatment when you stay here and you are made to feel part of the family . Thank you to all and hope to be back.
