We stayed just one night in the Grotta. We needed to catch a ferry to Kefalonia early in the morning, so wanted to stay near the port. It couldn't have been any closer to the ferry, and the little harbour was picturesque. Just a few tavernas and a restaurant on the beach where we enjoyed grilled fish and authentic Greek starters and white wine.
The hotel owners did not seem to be expecting us and did not register us in any way, but simply showed us to a room.. The room looked straight out over the harbour and had a pleasant view. It was also very peaceful. However, the room and bathroom could have been cleaner and there was no running water from the sink taps. The shower was tiny and the curtain did little to stop the entire bathroom getting drenched. There were no toiletries or added touches. We did not sleep well - the aircon did not seem to work and we had mosquitoes irritating us all night since we had to sleep with the window open.
The next morning we were given a nice breakfast of orange juice, coffee and toast with jam and butter. The staff were very nice and the price was extremely cheap. 30 euros for bed and breakfast for 2!
For a quick stopover and dinner before the ferry it was fine, i just wish it had been a touch cleaner and we had slept better!
