The staff are lovely here. They are very friendly and take a good interest in you, the rest is just okay. Breakfast is good to start off with but soon becomes rather boring, the rooms are basic and the shower is like a postage stamp however...

The beds... I'm 6ft4" and the bed in our room was around 5ft long with a big metal bar on the bottom end meaning I spent the entire holiday either halfway across my partners bed or with my feet either on top of the metal bar (very very uncomfortable) or hanging off the bed at the knee, again very uncomfortable.
The mattresses as well would be described as something between extremely firm and chiselled out of granite.

Everything else is brilliant, this is in no way a negative review of the entire hotel as everything else minus the bed and the shows size is really great!

Just returned yesterday from our stay here. We booked a room at the front of the hotel which in hindsight was a mistake on our part as the road out front is very busy and the traffic noise is pretty constant. The balcony was very small and there was no view at all. If we had asked for a garden view or a upper floor room we would have fared a lot better.
The whole hotel is spotlessly clean and very well run. Lovely helpful and friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble. We had bed and breakfast and the breakfast was very simple, boiled eggs, bread, ham and cheese. a bit boring but great value considering what we paid for the holiday. Agis, the barman is lovely and a dream to look at, so no complaints there.
The hotel is in a great location, just down from 2 main super markets and the beach is just a short walk opposite. The gardens are lovely and well kept and there is a large grass area out the back if you don't fancy the beach but still want to sunbathe.

I am a mad cat lady so please be prepared to help the little ones out, They are hungry and need your support. I bought 10 little tin pouches for them each day and put them up the driveway of the house next door to the left as you come out of the hotel, next to their carpart. Don't put food near the entrance by the road as this is dangerous for the cats as the traffic is constant and they will get run over. Don't buy big tins of cat food as the cats get their heads stuck in them and suffer from appalling injuries from this. Dried food or tin pouches are much better. Clear up the old pouches as well if you can as the man who lives there is lovely and kind to the cats as well.
There is a cat rescue charity called KAT's and a rescue centre called ARK. We used them as we found a kitten with very bad cat flu and 2 kittens whose eyes had become so infected they were blind. KAT's kindly took them to the vets for treatment and we made a voluntary donation to help this. They didn't ask for money, we gave it to them because they do such amazing work out there and they truly look the cats.

This was my 1st time at Irilena and in Kefalonia but it wont be my last. I will return very soon i hope.

Room tip: Choose a room at the back facing the gardens or a 1st floor room facing the street.

After having been to Lassi for over 15 years, we were recommended to stay at the Irilena Hotel by some friends. The hotel is run by the most pleasant of people who go the extra mile to ensure that everything is perfect. The room that we stayed in was exceptionally clean and tidy with a lovely sea view, the only downside was that it was on the corner meaning that we could hear the wind, and traffic as it looks out onto the road, however this was to be expected. The continental breakfast in the hotel was lovely and the very friendly barman is extremely good at making cocktails, (the best in lassi!). Overall, this hotel is in a very good location, close to the beach and restaurants, we will most definitely be returning!

The staff are absolutely great in the bar and make the best cocktails in Lassi. Nothing was too much trouble. Its spotlessly clean, lovely location on the main road yet secluded enough to feel exclusive.

Been to Kefalonia a number of time but first time staying here but not the last looking to return next year! They are only classed as 2* but deserve to be a lot higher if for nothing else other than customer service! nothing is to much trouble. rooms are spotless all staff are helpful.Breakfast is basic! and its opposite the best terverna on the road, very close at beach,shops tervernas,and bars. Well done Irilena see you all next year
