The Museum Hotel "George Molfetas" was meant to be a sanctuary for people seeking not only what the eye sees. It is an effort to bring to life the hospitality of the era it represents, the 1890s, which was the all-inclusive model of the luxury guest house. The actual impact on our guests is an immediate sense of being "at home." And this is our ultimate dream: to offer a home to the traveler and the dreamer of our times.

Travelling through the area we stopped at this hotel. We were welcomed by the owner and her dog who were very happy to show us around. This lady has a real passion to preserve the traditions of Greek life and the rooms are filled with authentic furnishings, books and memorabilia. They are simply beautiful! We were treated to coffee and had a very interesting conversation with the owner who was interested in our Irish background and our famous Irish poet Seamus Heaney who wrote about traditional home life in Ireland like her uncle George Molfetas did in Greece. We hope this establishment will be preserved for many years in the future.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The owner Katerina and her dog Noah are truly special and made us feel very welcome. Katerina gave us excellent sightseeing tips and was keen to share her amazing stories with us. The breakfast was excellent with lots of homemade ingredients. The room was spacious and very clean. We will always remember our stay at this place when we think of Kefalonia. :-)

This hotel is truly a real gem in Kefalonia. The owner had a great story and was very helpful during our stay, even packing a super delicious lunch for one of our hikes. Breakfast was delightful and very healthy which is a huge plus. I was able to have one of the best dinners as the food and the atmosphere was unforgettable. The hotel is small and not run in a typical manner so those looking for a full service hotel should look elsewhere. Those that are adventurous and appreciate culture and good conversation should definitely come. The house is extremely charming with a lot of character. I would not miss if staying on Kefalonia. Thank you!

It is I that wants to thank you William for pinpointing some points that were not mentioned ever before!!! This, of course, means sensitivity and real care for things that have been made with love and forthsight, aiming to the best for the hotel's guests. I am touched that you still remember my "vegetarian" sandwitches as I remember and I will remember the incident of your surprise when the boat with the hundreds of tourists appeared on a beach that you had conquered after a hicking of three hours. I still laugh when I talk about it. I am honoured that I finally hosted my first hikers and it was you. Nature has given me so much, and Kefalonian natural environment is unique in keeping so many places untouched by the massive "attack" of commercialization. Be well, happy and advanturous and keep investing in the best things in life: traveling and exploring the real nature. Thank you truely, Katerina

When I came I didn’t know anything about Kefalonia and just wanted to have a nice and calm ten-day-holiday. After arriving I found myself in a little paradise place which is run by Katerina, who is also the owner of the hotel. She takes so much care for her guests who immediately feel more than welcomed. I’ve literally got the best food at her place, she recommended me very beautiful places on the island, and i had life-enhancing conversations with her. I felt blessed with such a heartwarming host! One day I had the pleasure of a little tour through the rooms of the house and learned a lot about its history. This place is full of energy and special antique objects like furniture or hand crafted decoration. So inspiring to see how one can turn an old and decayed house into something comfy and authentic with so much care and respect. Katerina, you gave me the best time and i will never forget my stay at your place on the beautiful island of Kefalonia! I miss it already!

We stay in the Museum for 4 days and are the best days of our hollidays. The room is a real museum of old greek culture, the garden the best place for breakfast and dinner! Katerina is a perfectionist and make everything to feel at home.!Y ou can take the great breakfast with fresh fruits and many delicious local foods, yogourt and honey at any time and if you book Katerina can prepare a delicious dinner of Greek food the best I have ever taste. Our small dog also appreciate the garden. Tahnks Katerina for this wonderful days in Cephalonia . We will come back Kostas and Isabelle

Dear Kostas and Isabelle, Thank you for all the beautiful thought that you transmitted throught your review of the four days that we were together here in my little sanctuary. Although this summer was the busiest summer so far, for the 11 years that I have been taking care of "my kind of People", it has been the most relaxing one, as almost all the guests that visited were extremely wonderful: there was so much kindness, common view points, common interests, wonderful discussions, love for animals -my Noah has been in total bliss with the tender loving care that he received for more than 6 months! It was a joy and a priveledge to have you both on "board" during this time. It can only give me more incentive to carry on for as long as I can climb the steps of my kitchen.....Have a sweet Autumn and Winter. On any (grey) ocassion just bring the sights of Kefalonia that made you breathless and keep on smiling. Hugs to all three of you!
