“Expensive to eat and drink 1 bottle of wine 33 euros”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

This old hotel is probably in need of a refurbishment the room are basic and are not what I would say was 5 star in any way ? All rooms are sea view and totaly unspoilt we were on the third floor and the views were stunning , nice size balony with privacy walls both sides ,rooms were serviced every day with clean crisp sheets and fresh towels ,including pool towels ,basic shower ,aircon that did the job ,hair dryer ,mini bar, no tea or coffee facitiles .breakfast in the morning did the job Getting down to the nitty gritty stuff if you can afford to drink and eat here you can afford a better hotel eltswhere ,1/2 ltre local beer 9 euros ,1 bottle of house wine 33 euros,1 ltre of water 4 euros ,1 mixer 4 euros, 4 adults 2 house wine bottles and the multi choice menue 210 euros . Walking up the hill to Corfu town similar meal with two carafes of wine alacart Was 80 euros including a tip .one really good point to mention transfer time 10 mins from airport not noisy as planes head away from the island ,if you want to sit by the pool book a chair as the pool man reserves seats and the older couples get down to the pool as the sun comes up so that they have the best seats in the house ( very well organized retired pool worshipers ) this is not the hotel for the kids .Lovely part of the island well placed hotel but it needs a re think ,hope this helps the fellow travelers

Situated quite near the airport and within walking distance to restaurants and all the sights of the old town. Our room was big with a balcony and lovely views over the bay towards Greece and Albania to the left. Bathroom was big and clean with plenty of toiletries supplied. Safe deposit in room too. The swimming pool was large, one of the reasons we chose this hotel. It does need some updating but all the staff were so warm, friendly and helpful that it wasn't important.
Would certainly return.

Of wardrobe space. Furniture a little dated but this added to the charm of the hotel. We were
Very happy with everything on our stay.....the breakfast was varied and catered for every
Taste and the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely
Recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Corfu Palace hotel for 2 weeks in September and it was our first visit there and to Corfu. We stayed in a superior room on the 6th floor and the view was amazing. All the rooms are facing front and have a sea view.

It was billed as a 5 star hotel however the standard of furnishing and fixtures and fittings in our opinion do not live up to this. We had carpet in our room which was good quality and we preferred that to a wood or tiled floor.
The room was cleaned every day with fresh towels and also towels left for use round the pool. We we surprised that the pool towels were much bigger (bath sheet size) and of better quality than the towels in the bathroom which were really thin, small and on occasion had holes in! This was a bit disappointing I have to say.
The room was very spacious with plenty of closet space, shelves, a safe, fridge and good air-conditioning. The furniture however was dated and in our room there were 2 dining type chairs and a small occasional table. A couple of "comfy" chairs would have gone down well.
We did like the touch of having fresh fruit and flowers left in the room, that was really nice.

The buffet breakfast was very good with plenty of choice of hot and cold food that I'm sure would suit every taste and if you need anything you just have to ask a member of staff, they were very helpful. Tea and coffee are served to your table. You can sit inside or outside on the patio which is a nice way to start the day.

The pool area is very nice with a large pool (be warned though, it is salt water). The sun loungers and parasols do need some updating but there are plenty of both in both sun and shade areas and again the staff are happy to help if you need to move them or want an extra mattress.

It's only a short walk into town from the hotel where you can find some lovely restaurants, cafes and many shops! It's worth having lunch or coffee or cocktail on The Liston and watching the world go by.

All in all, although the Corfu Palace does not really live up to the 5 star rating, we really enjoyed our stay there and would most certainly return if we go back to Corfu.

Room Tip: Go for a room on a higher floor.

I have been staying in this hotel 3 times already and if I return only there. It has the best location in Corfu town, so everything is very close and can be reached by food. It is very quiet and relaxing in the hotel. The staff is very friendly and professional. The restaurant and pool bar serve very nice food. The only thing I dislike that rooms are always cleaned in the afternoon.

Room Tip: Room 609 was very nice to stay at

This 5 star hotel is just 5 minutes taxi ride from the airport and overlooks the beautiful Garitsa bay. The staff are friendly and efficient. The room we stayed in was OK - decent size, nice view, hard beds and slightly tired bathroom. The main town is about 5 mins walk away with all the bars, shopping, restaurants and great sights we needed for a week's stay. Overall a great choice for a holiday.
