“Delightful place, but beware room 9.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2009

Just back from a week at the Cavos Inn. It's a lovely little hotel, the owners are a delight, the free breakfast is delicious and healthy, Assos is beautiful; quiet, even in the busy season. I've been to at least 20 odd destinations in Greece and I have to say that the Cavos Inn is blessed with possibly the best view I've ever experienced. And that's where my problem lay. We booked through Ionian Islands, there was one room left, no.9. With a 'side sea view' according to their brochure. Now, when I think of a side sea view, I imagine a view from the room of mountains/ the village/ a field/ something, with a partial sea view, but not a solid wall six feet from the balcony, extending to the height of the hotel and past the air con unit and Room 8 to the left. (See photos.) This means no direct light enters the room and it feel dark and claustraphobic. And quite spoiled my stay. Having said that, if the brochure description had been accurate, something like: 'Side sea view, but seriously restricted by facing next door's house wall, 6 feet away' at least I would have known what to expect, if I still decided to take the room and would not have had such a dissappointing surprise.
I do reccommend Cavos Inn, but warn you to make sure you get one of the romms with the fabulous sea view, or else are happy to have a view of a wall.

We have just returned from two weeks in Assos, staying at the Cavos Inn. It is a truly magical place. Our room had a small balcony which overlooked the incredibly blue sea. Blue sky and hot sun every day. Assos' little beach and harbour were perfect with crystal clear water, fishing boats and yachts. A few tavernas, most of which overlooked the harbour. About half an hour's drive away was Fiskardo, which was also really nice, but much busier. Great for a coffee and watching the world go by. Also good for hiring a little motor boat for a trip across to Ithika Island. If you go to Ithika, Polis Bay, it's worth making the hot walk up the hill to Stavros and visiting the little restaurant with the garden (I can't remember the name). A little bit off the beaten track but absolutely lovely and delicious food. Nowhere else in Cephalonia comes anywhere near Assos and Fiskardo.
