“Great stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2011

Please ignore the previous review!!
The Princess is in a great location, right opposite a beautiful beach with amenities.
The rooms are small and basic, but are exceptionally clean(cleaned every day) and perfectly adequate for the amount of time you spend in them. The pool area is lovely and the pool bar is a great place to relax on a night.
The staff are really friendly especially Pamela and Mikhalis at the pool bar.
We had a great holiday in this pretty, quiet relaxed resort.
Top restaurants: Ionio, Nefali and Pheadra.

Stayed at the Princess Hotel from 14-28 May and had a lovely time there. The hotel is nicely presented with immaculate fittings and furnishings in the public areas and lovely grounds. As previous reviewers have said it is only a couple of minutes away from what we thought was the best beach on the island

Our room wasn't huge but there was more than enough space for the two of us - although the balcony was a bit of a tight fit. The room contains a fridge and free safe, which are both very useful.

I can't say enough about the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff, they were all brilliant - even those who don't speak a huge amount of english greet you with a smile and hello.

The only thing that lets this hotel down is the breakfasts - not very inspiring but it will fill you up. However, the bar food is good.

Things we enjoyed doing :

The walk from Lassi to Argostoli along the Finari Road - takes about an hour and a half

The ferry trip from Argostoli to Lixouri where we found a gift shop at the back of the main square that sells bronze models of the Greek gods - they make really different souvenirs from the usual tat.

Assos really pretty and the walk up to the castle is worth doing for the views.

The drive to the top of Mount Enos

Boat trip round Ithaca

The Mellisani Cave

And last but not least The Castle Cafe at Kastro Agiou Georgiou. Run by a Greek man and his English wife it has a beautiful garden to sit in, lovely food and for me perfectly made tea (i don't drink coffee) - there was even hot water to top up the pot! If you have a car and can get there do try it out but it does close at 6.30pm.

My hasbant and i stayed at the Princess Hotel Kefalonia in July for 10 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All the staff was exceptionally warm,friendly and helpful.
The hotels location was outstanding as it was just accross the best beach on the island (in our opinion after visited quite a few others) Makris Gialos. And just walking destance to shops and taverns. The food at the hotel was very god and reasonably priced.
Our holiday in Kefalonia and stay at the Kefalonian Princess was a nice surprise!!
Well done

We had originally planned on visiting Kefalonia a bit later in the month but are so glad we amended our itinerary since the hotel (and the entire island for the most part) closes for the season the second week in October.

The Princess Hotel is beautifully laid out with a nice pool and very lovely common areas. The staff is very friendly and most speak impeccable English (the family that own it, originally from Kefalonia, spent many years in New Jersey). There's also a beautiful beach just across the street and they serve a nice breakfast included in the price as well as a good dinner and a good bar.

Our room had a nice view and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was basic and nothing to rave about but was fine for the most part. I'd definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

Princess hotel is a jewel just a few feet from Makris Yalos, a beach with golden sand and crystal clean waters with spectacular surroundings that captures the imagination made my holidays an unforgettable dream.
The hospitality and the friendliness of the owners, the kindness of the staff, the clean and beautiful rooms, the delicious meals the vivid Greek & international nights, the swimming pool and the fantastic courtyard with the finely manicured lawns have made me captive of my desire to return many more times in the future to this imaginary site.
I strongly recommend it!!!

Plus points: Decent room, balcony with garden view, helpful staff, lovely pool. Free air con and safe in room (not always the case in Greece). Very clean. Fridge.

Negatives: Just the breakfast really. Juice was not fresh and most days there was no fruit. When there was it was canned peach slices! If we had been paying extra we would only have eaten there once, as it was we couldn't be bothered to go down for it a couple of days. Also, lots of steps which was fine for me but if you have mobility problems or pushchair etc it could be a pest.

The Princess Hotel was the pefect base for our holiday in Kefalonia. Our first impression of the hotel was how pretty it was with it's lovely grounds and unique character. The food was very good and the friendliness of the staff outstanding.

We went with our 7 year old son who enjoyed the pool and the beach (which is just a 2 min walk away) - it really is a perfect retreat for families or couples looking for a quiet holiday.

We have never loved anywhere enough to want to return, but the beauty of the island along with the high standards of he Princess make this well worthy of a second visit.
