Wonderfully helpful and polite staff. Good hotel and pool area. Easy walk to centre of Lixouri for the restaurants. Poor beach next to the hotel which had a lot of rubbish on it. Short taxi ride to better beaches.

With my husband we planned our vacation in Greece and chosen Kefalonia. This was the best decision ever! Beautiful island not toouched by commerce yet. Family run hotel right on the beach with beautiful garden. Do not expect the "5 star resort hotel" with hunderds rooms. This family hotel is a small quiet place with experience of real Greece.

Dear guests, thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and to post your lovely pictures. We appreciate and take into consideration your candid comments. As a matter of fact the Summery opened in 1981, but it is the first real hotel that opened in Lixouri (en-suite rooms were considered a luxury back then) and serves as a...

After research in travel books we decided to return to Greece. Many years since we had been, travelling far and wide in the mean time! We decided on Kefalonia, then Lixouri, then after reading Trip Advisor, The Summery Hotel! All fantastic decisions! The Family run Summery Hotel is a lovely place. The amenities for a 2 star hotel are excellent,...

Dear lukykuky, I'm sorry you couldn't have bacon for breakfast and that you left with a grunge, even though I tried to explain to you matters of hotel ranking, pricing and also local diet that we take into consideration when we choose what to put in the buffet (matters which paradoxically you seem to understand when it comes to room...

My partner and I came back yesterday from a week's break at the Summery Hotel. Having read the previous reviews before we booked, there is very little I can now add in regards to the location, aircon, wifi, breakfast, etc which were all excellent!

Cephalonia is a jewel in the Ionian Sea and we would add that the Summery Hotel In Lixouri is a gem in that crown. We always find it difficult to recommend a specific hotel because peoples preferences are so different. The fact that we have just returned from our 14th stay at this hotel means that we highly recommend it...

Once again, the team at Hotel Summery looked after us as though we were friends and not guests. New barmaid Angela soon discovered our penchant for a cold Mythos beer at 4pm every day!

What a fantastic place, family run hotel with about 80 rooms only about half of them were occupied when we were there. It's a very simple, slightly dated hotel but with everything you need.
