Certificate of Excellence
Telesilla is a fine 3-star family-run hotel ideally situated almost at the center of Corfu. The city of Corfu, its famous old town and both the island's airport and main port are only a 10-minute drive from the hotel and the prestigious Gouvia Marina is at walking distance. It's cosy and comfortable and has a reputation for its friendly and joyful atmosphere. All rooms include a new flat-screen satellite TV, new air-conditioning unit, free Wi-Fi, safe deposit box, a small refrigerator and a hairdryer. Iron and ironing board, baby cot and extra towels are offered on request. Our Business Centre (two laptops and printing services, available 24/7) and 24-hour wake-up call service as well as taxi service arrangements and plenty of luggage storage room are also available to all our guests. We offer a hearty buffet breakfast and our swimming pool and roof garden (equipped with sun loungers, umbrellas and showers) as well as the snack bar are available from 09:00 am to 18:00. At 18:00 pm, the pool restaurant and the cocktail bar start serving delicious homemade dishes and elaborate cocktails. In addition, we host live performances, including traditional music or lounge and jazzy styles, at least 3 times a week. Moreover, Telesilla is a perfect base for excursions and tours. The public bus stop, with frequent services to the city of Corfu, is a two minute walk from the hotel and, in case you want to rent a car or take a boat trip, our staff can give you all the information and handle all the arrangements. We can also suggest great places to visit. Telesilla is accessible to persons of reduced mobility to a satisfactory degree and has successfully served such persons in the past.

Couldn’t recommend this hotel highly enough. Beautifully clean and well maintained. Staff all lovely and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in room 210 which was 2 beds and for a family of 4 including two teenagers was perfect. Already looking to book again!

Hotel's Favorite
Stayed for 11 nights end of June - begining of July and were very pleased with our choice. We normally go for larger hotels but opted for the Telesilla due to the reviews and were not disappointed. Owners and staff were all exceptionally welcoming and helpful and made it their business to make sure guests enjoyed their stay. Room was clean and comfortable. Air conditioning was quiet and efficient. Bathroom was recently refurbished and interesting to note that the shower cubicle had cleverly been enlarged, which goes to prove the owners take on board previous guests comments and are keen to improve . Double glaziing very good for sealing out noise. Hotel is spotles throughout including the pool and bar area. The poolside restaurant and bar has a great vibe, especially on nights when entertainment was laid on. Dinner menu was varied and food was delicious and plentyful. Service was 5 star. Spoke to many other guests who have been returning year after year - it's easy to see why. Thanks to ALL the Telesilla Team, especially Makis, Thomas ( world's maddest barman- but great cocktails), Yannis and Aggleos. Patrick&Jane

Nice hotel with friendly common areas and well appointed rooms. The staff was very helpful in providing information about available services (a laundry 2 doors away and bakery next door) and arranging car services for transfers and early breakfast for early departures. The family owned restaurant was excellent both in terms of service and food. Only complaint there was that the music played at least until midnight even on week nights, so bring really good earplugs. There was also a lot of road noise at all hours. A nearby marina was a relaxing and quiet place for a walk. Nearby restaurants were largely touristy but contained a few gems. Close to bus stops into Corfu Town for sightseeing.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
Corfu has its problems. The infrastructure is crumbling, litter is prevalent and sanitation less than satisfactory. This might come as a shock to a first time visitor. We were lucky enough to find this excellent hotel which helps alleviate the problems described. Firstly it is situated in the middle of the island with excellent transport links. Bus stops are located outside the hotel with a cheap and reliable bus service to all points. Now on to the hotel itself which is clean and comfortable and when we stayed in October very good value considering the temperature was still around 28 degrees. The hotel has an excellent restaurant situated around the pool bar where you can relax with a drink from the well stocked bar including the hotels own excellent wine . Special mentions must go to Thomas and Yannais who as well as being extremely professional were also very personable. Another mention must go to Sofia on the desk who provided all necessary info and arranged trips, All staff are multi-lingual. A great experience!

The hotel is lovely, staff is helpful, the restaurant has good food and service. Just don’t plan on getting much sleep. Between the heavy road noise and loud music from the bar until past midnight you will need a hefty set of earplugs to get any sleep.
