The air-conditioning is limited 5.30-12... don't come here with teenage kids... this place is for the dead and dying... snacks and beers from the pool side bar are... More

I found the staff at the hotel very friendly. Especially the lovely lady serving us at the pool. She was wonderful. Also, the manager is a nice fella, very welcoming. The South African lady too on reception was chatty and had a lovely smile :) The young barman was really nice too. The hotel is located near the taverna's in... More

In a parallel universe somewhere Fawlty Towers is located near Sami in Kephalonia, and is owned and policed by a Greek - Basil Pericles. The Greek Basil surrounds his Hotel with polite requests such as , 'Please do not change the Tv channel!', Please do not enter the hotel lounge bare-chested!', and 'Please do not bring your own food and...

Basic hotel but very clean, hotel staff were very friendly and very helpful, shower was a bit of a nightmare, very small and cramped and the hose wasn't long enough, you had to be careful that the curtain wasn't over the edge or it flooded so you had to hold in your hand rather than on the wall.

It's small family hotel. Clean and simple. People who are working there are all locals and very friendly. Big swimming pool. Very good location, close to Sami (10min walk) but far enough to feel relax and quiet. Nice simple breakfast. 2 bars. Very good cleaning service.

We travelled as a couple in late July and booked last minute (2 days before arriving) through Thomas Cook. We got quite a reasonable deal for 14 nights. Hotel, pool and rooms very clean although as commented in numerous other reviews - quite basic. I can confirm that the staff are indeed extremely friendly and helpful responding to minor issues...

Hotel was very clean and in a great location quite close to Sami (which was a nice walk away) Food was a huge disappointment as there was no restaurant. Breakfast very basic, we regularly bought fresh fruit and kept it in the fridge in our room (€4 charge per day) to take upto breakfast with us each morning. Pool area... More
