“Great little hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

My sister and I recently stayed at the Debono in Sept for 10 nights and had a great stay!

The hotel has been refurbished to a really high standard. The rooms are a great size. Comfy beds and all the usual things you would expect in a hotel of this standard. The bathrooms are a really high standard, with a great powerful shower. All rooms seem to have a really good size balcony as well.

We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and the standard was very high. There was always choice. You never felt rushed when having breakfast which you can often feel in some hotels and you had the choice of eating breakfast inside or outside. We usually sat outside in the calm atmosphere!

We only used the pool once and we got a sunbed easily. The lady who runs the restaurant is a real gem. She is so friendly and goes out of her way to help in anyway possible.

The staff at the Debono are also another plus, nothing is too much trouble and they are always smiling.

The location of the hotel is just perfect whilst a 10 minute walk to the local beach in Gouvia it's easy to get to various places by car or bus. Corfu town is only 20 mins by bus and is a must visit with amazing places for dinner and coffee, you can sit and watch the world go by. Also the architecture and little streets are amazing! Also the hotel is a perfect location to other beaches such as Dassia, Pelekas, Glyfada and Paleokastiras - all of which are a must see.

This hotel is a gem and is a much welcome change to many of the bigger hotels in Corfu!

Thank you to Julie and her amazing team for a memorable stay and we can't wait to return!

A well designed hotel tucked into a magnificent environment of Mediterranean vegetation and flowers, every view composed in harmony, to wake up your emotions and rest your thoughts. Very quiet hotel, yet not boring, with a lot of ambients to explore and enjoy. The hotel has recently been restored into a very pleasant space, all in good taste and without typical exaggeration, natural materials and colors to soothe a soul on vacation. I was impressed with a simple yet pleasant design of the rooms and their spaciousness and functionality, bathroom especially. The staff is very helpful and always smiling, service in general was excellent. Food, cleanliness and overall comfort was a delight. The hotel is a good starting point to explore the whole great island of Corfu, situated quite close to the Corfu town, a wonderful, lively place to enjoy your evenings in a romantic restaurant or just strolling through its "Venetian" streets and historic, marvelous sights. Overall, a magnificent experience on a magnificent island that I recommend and hope to visit again!

On the spur of the moment my husband and I decided to visit Corfu while on the mainland in Igoumenitsia. We were on a driving tour and after arriving in Corfu drove around for a place to stay and accidentally came upon the hotel. They had vacancies in late August and we were able to have a double immediately. The service, cost, amenities and convenience of location (if in a car), with breakfast included was very good value and we would go back there anytime. Dinner was also available in buffet form for a small very reasonable cost. A very pleasurable stay with lovely garden and swimming pool ideal for families.

We were very pleased with our stay at Debono Art Hotel. The room was spacious, the food (breakast, dinner) was very satsfactory ( I was a little bit dissapointed the first day with dinner, but the other days everything was perfect), and the location is excellent ( if you move by car).
Our children really enjoyed the pool. The stuff was very polite!
Generally, a very pleasant say!

Room Tip: In order to find the hotel, turn left at the first stop lights after the Corfu General Hospital!

This hotel has clearly been recently updated and the rooms are truly beautiful We were in five different hotels in Europe and this was by far the cleanest, prettiest and most spacious. The women at the front desk were completely hospitable and generous with their time and advice. The pool area has the potential to be very nice but could use a little updating. For example, all rooms are supplied with pool towels but they are not all the same color so it looks a little sloppy around the pool. They probably should update their pool chaises because many do not adjust so one can sit up and read. Irini in the snack bar was wonderfully accommodating.....she does the cooking, the serving and the bartending with ease. Gouvia itself is fair, not that stunning. Corfutown is definitely worth the 18 euro taxi fare to get there. The pool was sparkling clean, as were the accomodations and the A/C was the best we had in any hotel!

Room Tip: Our room on the second floor was great and no complaints

Our experience was much as other recent reviewers' - pleasant, clean, well-equipped hotel with extremely helpful staff. The pool was very nice and there's a tennis court with racquets etc. on loan from Reception. The buffet-style dinner was a pretty good mix of salads, a soup, 5 or 6 hot dishes and a range of desserts.
The location of this hotel is one of its strongest features. Even without a hire car it's easy to get to Corfu Town, the beaches of the East Coast and Aqualand (17 euros each way for a taxi). Gouvia village and the marina are both walkable.

Room Tip: Junior Suites have a large double bed in the main area, with a second area holding two single sofa b...
