“Great value, location good and staff brilliant.”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

From the minute we stepped into the hotel Janet and Gerry were brilliant. Breakfast is continental but everything is fresh and local. Rooms are clean and spacious - all of the staff are friendly with nothing being too much trouble. Gardens kept immaculate - plenty of sun beds at all times. Lixouri is great with loads of restaurants at good prices. The island is worth a tour - amazing beaches - got the ferry to Agostoli which was lovely - will definitely be back.

A wonderful week back at La Cite Hotel. A warm welcome from the wonderful ladies Gerry and Janet who do everything to make it a real relaxing home from home. This is a smaller family run Greek hotel providing everything you need to recharge your batteries on Kefalonia.
Lixouri has many restaurants to choose from, our favourites being V&S Corner Bar for something a little special, Maxims for a good range of tasty food and Akrogiali restaurant serving all the wonderful traditional Greek meals. We hired cycles a couple of days and cycled to Xi and Vatsa Bay. Both quite different from each other. We were also fortunate to go to a music concert one evening, a stones throw away from the hotel, 2 local guys performing & a pianist who we gather has played internationally with Nana Mouskouri and Julio Iglesias. We were heading back to the hotel, heard the music, went to explore and got invited in to the open air concert.Kefalonia always delivers. We will be back to La Cite soon.

Room Tip: All the rooms we have stayed in have been very comfortable.

My fiance and I spent a week in la cite. Hotel location is amazing. Only few minutes from town square. Easy access to the shops, restaurants and bars. Janet and Gerry really looked after us and made our stay enjoyable. They helped us to rent a car, we collected key from reception, everything else was sorted for us. Hotel is kept very clean and there are plenty of sun beds available all day. Hotel breakfast is simple but we've enjoyed greek yoghurt and peaches. There's a wide choice of nearby restaurants with great selection of greek cuisine as well as foreign. I would definitely come back to la cite, for its great location and staff.

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing week at this hotel. We were very well looked after throughout by Janet and Gerry who could not have made us more welcome. The hotel is kept very clean and the pool area is immaculate, with plenty of chairs and sun-loungers.
Rooms are clean and comfortable. We paid for the air-con (5 Eur per day) and were glad we did as it was very hot the week we stayed.
The location is very convenient - just a 5 minute walk into the main square with a good selection of places to eat/drink.
Breakfast is a simple selection of bread, jam, honey, cereal, Greek yoghurt, boiled eggs, tinned fruit etc.
To get to the hotel....We arrived at the airport at about 8pm, got in a taxi to the ferry in Agastoli (20 Euros). The 20 minute crossing (2.50 Eur each) was lovely with views of the mountains. We then walked from the ferry, along the right side of the square, crossed the road (by the supermarket on the corner) and continued up the hill for about 200 yards. You can turn either left or right to get to La Cite (garden door is left, 'main' door is right). The ferry trip was a lovely start to the holiday.
We've had a lovely holiday and definitely hope to return to La Cite.

My wife and I stayed at La Cite from 9/6/13 until 23/6/13, this being the fifth year running we have stayed there. La cite is a lovely hotel and right from our first visit we have always been made very welcome and we now treat the place as a home from home. Many guests return year after year so the hotel must be doing something right. The rooms are a good size and are always spotlessly clean. There is a good selection of food for breakfast and snacks from the bar are very good also. The pool is always clean and there are always plenty of sunbeds and space to put them. The hotel is located less than five minutes from the main square where there are several excellent bars and restaurants. Our favourites are Peros, V&S Corner Bar and Restaurant and Novita. Guess where we are returning next year.

Booked this hotel on a late deal and we were not disappointed one bit. Rooms are clean, we had a balcony overlooking the pleasant gardens. Janet and Gerri were helpful and friendly, We were made extremely welcome. The pool is clean and there is never a problem with sunbeds as it is a small hotel. A great base to explore the Island. Breakfast is standard greek fare and enough of it.
We had to pay 5 euro per night for aircon and 2 euro per day for safe box but we had expected that. All in all a fab time and we would definately go back as so many ppl do. As others have said catch a taxi from the airport to Augostini and get the ferry across makes a wonderful start to the holiday

Have just returned from one week at la cite. A wonderful little hotel within five minutes walk of the square at Lixouri. Take a taxi to Agostoli harbor and ferry across to Lixouri. The rooms, bedding and towels are all spotlessly clean with hairdryer and kettle provided.A/C available for 5 euros per night. Breakfast is more than adequate with a selection of cereals,boiled eggs, bread,peaches and greek yogurt. The pool area is small but perfect for lazing in the sun or in the shade under various fruit trees.Plenty of sun beds available.The pool bar serves good food at a reasonable price 2.50 for a toastie and beer served in frozen glasses. Unfortunately the beach at Lixouri is a bit of a disappointment, however there is a bus to xi beach and taxis will take and pick you back up at the time of your choosing at a reasonable cost. The square and harbor have some lovely restaurants, we enjoyed Novita and Maxims. Finally, the staff at the hotel are wonderful nothing was too much for them. Thankyou for a wonderful holiday.
