“Excellent Small Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is a lovely hotel - not a lot of room so very peaceful - we went out of term time tho - welcome drink was complimentary - not just a bland "cocktail2 but whatever you wanted
We had a superior room which was worth the extra - full sun for a big part of the day and very large balcony Beds a little firm but thats Europe!
Breakfast was simple but all ingredients on the cold buffet were of good quality - lovely pasties excellent OJ and stunning greek yoghurt - just a couple of hot options but I personally dont like a cooked breakfast in a hot climate
Very clean and tidy
There is a short walk 10 mins down to Fiskardo about 15 mins back - its a hill not Mt Everest so don't panic!
Staff very friendly but not instrusive or pushy

Room Tip: Book direct via the website - was cheaper for me than going via a portal Sunvil holidays have a goo...

The hotel is charming, very clean, with very good atmosphere, food ( in the hotel and also in Tassia restaurant ) and such a beautiful view ! Thanks to Elena and all the staff of Almyra Hotel: they all looked after us and always had a lot of attentions : we had a wonderful, relaxing and happy holiday, better than we could ever expect. We fell in love with Fiscardo and with Almyra Hotel...we'll go back for sure!

Just had the most wonderful stay at this lovely hotel. The owners are very accommodating and the staff are all a pleasure to deal with. Great location with fabulous views. The place is spotless and the very well kept.

I will definitely return to Fiscardo, a piece of paradise.

The hotel is located on a hill, 10 min walk to the harbour and a 20/30 min walk back if you don't get a lift from the owner or 4euro in a taxi ( taxis finish about midnight ).

There are a number of beautiful small beaches nearby, the hotel will drop you off if you don't have a car/boat, easy and lovely to walk back from them though not for elderly or disabled.

We tried a number of the restaurantsin the town and found the owners restaurant, Tassia, one of the best which is great with a 10% discount, complimentary desserts, liqueur and often wine on the house. Very generous.

Highly recommend this hotel and their restaurant on the harbour.

The Almyra is as good as everyone says, and you are always thinking can it be that good, and the answer is yes.
The location is superb, with great views looking over the sea and the distant island of Lefkas.
The hotel is beautifully kept and the staff couldn't be more helpful.
Fiskardo itself has a great choice of restaurants and lovely harbour setting.Not an ideal location though for children.

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view

We spent a week in this beautiful hotel and wish it could have been a month! Its location, on the hillside above Fiskardo and looking out towards Ithaca and Lefkas, is itself beautiful, and Alana and the team looked after us superbly. The rooms are lovely and because the hotel is not too big (27 rooms) there is almost a family feel to staying there. Breakfast (on a sunny terrace or indoors) was simple but satisfying and we also had lunch there several times: an equally pleasant meal. The Swimming Pool (with attached children's pool) and Sun Terrace was beautifully clean, and keeps the sun until late afternoon. Although we had a hire car and did not need it, the Hotel runs a minibus up and down the hill to the village several times a day and Tassia Restaurant on the harbourfront is in the same family and offers a 10% discount. As it is one of the best restaurants as well, there's little wonder that it is very popular. Fiskardo is a gem of a place and The Almyra Hotel will certainly be seeing us again!

Room Tip: They're all good, and all face the same way, to the sun!

My daughter and I spent a week at the Almyra Hotel in September, 2012. She had been there in July with her husband and loved the hotel so much she offered to return in just two months so I could share the same delightful experience. We had a huge room with a sitting area, a refrigerator, a large desk with free internet, a large bathroom, and best of all a very large balcony with comfortable chairs and a spectacular view. We had a delicious buffet breakfast every morning which was included in the price. We had a rental car, but anyone who needs a ride into the village or to the harbor, they take you and pick you up on the van. The price for all this luxury was about what you would expect to pay in the U.S. for one night.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front have the best view.

We stayed at the Almyra Hotel in August 2012 and couldn't have been more happier. Alana and her small team look after you very well and were very quick to respond to any request we made of them. Although it was the busy season this hotel had a lovely discerning feel about it, quiet yet friendly.

Being situated just a few minutes walk from the town means you enjoy lovely views of the sea from your room and pool. Breakfast was first class.

Alana's husband's sister is a famous Greek chef and guests of the hotel enjoy a discount at the restaurant in Fiscardo - which happens to be the most popular restaurant and one of the longest established in the harbour. We have been coming to Cephalonia for more than 10 years and love the cuisine of Turkey and Greece, and this has to be the best restaurant we have ever dined in. There are lots of famous people (UK, American and Greek) you can see dining here.

There's no need for the hotel owners to offer this discount as its such a popular restaurant so its so nice that they do.

We would definitely come back here and stay for longer next time,
