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.

We had an amazing 3 weeks stay at Hotel Telesilla in September - where everything had been carefully considered to cater for guests needs in spite of restrictions put in place due to Covid. We have stayed at the hotel on many occasions and every time the family have made every effort to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible - making us part of the Telesilla family, and nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are up to date and extremely comfortable, reception and breakfast areas are luxurious and up to date, but extremely comfortable. Whilst the pool area/bar/restaurant is spotlessly clean. The restaurant serves the best food in Kontokali and both lunchtime/evening menus offer a wide selection of perfectly cooked food. But what makes the hotel so popular and amazing, is the staff! From the friendly ladies who clean the rooms snd public areas, through the bar/restaurant/reception staff right up to the family who own the hotel - from the moment you arrive until the time you leave - you are treated like family. And, whilst ALL staff are friendly and caring for your needs, I have to mention Elizabeth, who oversees the running of the hotel, always ready with a smile to offer any help - her brother Makis who manages the running of the restaurant, with a lot of help from Yannis, always ready to cater to your needs, Hara, a ball of fun, with a ready smile and happy to serve you drinks and snacks during the day, and not forgetting Tomas - the best barman in Corfu - flamboyant, funny, friendly and a connoisseur of cocktails. In short the family run Hotel Telesilla provides a perfect place to stay where nothing is too much trouble and every need catered for.

I came here for a week with my girlfriend and loved every second of it. The staff were friendly and helpful from the start. We had a brilliant room with a view of the pool and one of the mountains that is nearby. The bar was brilliant with good choices of drinks and brilliant cocktails. There are also plenty of great restaurants nearby that have excellent food! Not to mention, there is a regular bus that runs past the hotel towards Corfu Town that is really cheap and quick! I will definitely come back and recommend to anyone!

The service at The Telesilla is outstanding. From Makis, Elizabeth and all the staff, Yannis, Aggelos, Aggeliki, Hara and Alma and of course not forgetting the first class barman, Toma, the face to face staff here are a pleasure to be around. Behind the scenes the hotel is kept in magnificent order by the cleaning staff, who everyday, work extremely hard in these difficult times to ensure the hotel is spotlessly clean and safe. The food available at The Telesilla, whether it be breakfast, pool side snacks, or in the restaurant is just simply splendid. Moussaka to die for, Sofrito which is an outstanding Corfiot dish and of course Stifado, which is cooked to perfection and many other fabulous dishes on offer, all served by a friendly and cheery member of staff. There is a reason why so many people return to this hotel, year after year and often several times a year. It is Outstanding, magnificent, splendid and more. Don't just take my word for it, check it out for yourself!
