We did not pay for transfers - it is cheaper to get taxi from airport to Argostoli ferry (20 euro) then ferry to Lixouri (2.5 euro ). A 5 minute walk up right hand side of the square, going past supermarket brings you to sign for hotel, left is back entrance and quicker.
The hotel - small,intimate,relaxing,peaceful,friendly staff,clean,basic breakfast,nice pool and gardens.Air con is 5 euro per day, the fridge is 3 euro per day (we needed neither).There is a kettle but no tea coffee etc so good idea to take with you.If you enjoy sitting on a balcony then ask for a large one as the small ones are no use for 2 people.If you like morning sun ,you need a room overlooking gardens-if evening sun, then overlooking mountains.
There is a super beach - Lepeda -30 mins walk away.2 sunbeds and a parasol for 5 euro .A small cafe with tables on beach-nice meatballs,whitebait and greek salad (and a loo ,most important )
Only minutes from hotel to many bars and restaurants.We loved Novita-their pork venetia is lovely.Maxim do great Greek chicken.We also found a cheap place off the square where you can get souvlaki (chicken skewer) for 1.5 euro for one, add chips salad etc small bot wine 3.00 euro. Apart from there, everything same cost as U.K..
We loved our week here ,felt relaxed immediately.However if you want entertainment,dancing,games etc this is not for you.
The hotel is def good value and is so quick and easy to get to from the airport- we will def return when we need some R &R in a peaceful location. ( P.S-we are a couple in our 50's)

I can only agree with previous reviews. This is a very clean and friendly hotel. The staff are very helpful and happy people. It is situated a 2 minute walk from the harbour and square which has plenty of tavernas and bars to enjoy. I personally think a little background music would help create a nicer atmosphere when spending time poolside. ( The pool filter system is quite noisy). Also perhaps a weekly Greek night./bbq would be a good thing. But i was there in late season and everywhere was pretty quite. Overall it was a very nice holiday and i would return. The island is very pretty and its worth hiring a car, scooter or quad bike to branch out.

Just returned from a week at this hotel and can certainly agree with other reviews. This is a small friendly hotel where the staff get to know really quickly. The rooms are cleaned every day, the pool and garden areas are well maintained with plenty of sunbeds and tables and chairs. Breakfast is provided and my only gripe is that there was no fresh fruit available. They do have a small lift available if required.

The hotel is well situated for tavernas and shops. The ferry across to Arostoli is close by and costs 2.50 euros each way and takes about 20 minutes.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the garden.

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.
