Just returned from a weeks stay at White Rocks Hotel and am pleased to confirm the majority of the previously noted comments are an accurate reflection of the hotel. Fantastic location with stunning sea views (if you managed to book a room with one of course!) and a lovely little private beach. Despite reservations of buffet style evening meals we were very surprised by the variation in menus and the quality of the food on offer. Had booked half board and still planned to sample some local restaurants and tavernas during the week but ended up eating in the hotel every night. Nearby Lassi has a few nice cocktail bars and not too far to walk after a hefty evening meal.
Hiring a car for 3 days took us to every corner of the island - Assos is stunning as is Fiskardo and the ferry trip from Argostoli to Lixouri opens up another corner of the island including the stunning Petania Bay. Took advice from an earlier review and hired the car in the UK before departing - good move as was much cheaper than sorting it over there.
Hotel staff were all very friendly and even managed to keep on our room until leaving at 2pm on the last day for the very short trip back to the airport - a really nice touch, thank you!
This was our first trip to Kefalonia and would highly recommend this hotel as a perfect base to explore this beautiful island.
