“Wonderful Service”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

Set in beautiful surroundings. Sophia and the staff can not do enough for you, they all go that extra mile. The apartments are spacious and very clean. The Hotel is small and charming with lust greenery. The views are stunning. Can't wait to come back.

We stayed at the Dafnoudi Hotel for one week, and cannot fault it. Set in beautiful gardens, with stunning views to the sea, the hotel is perfectly located for a peaceful, memorable holiday. The apartments are spacious, beautifully decorated and cleaned daily. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly The local restaurants serve excellent food, and the 'hustle and bustle' of Fiskado only a short cab ride away (5 euro). Stunning beaches a short drive away, Jerusalem beach being our favorite. The taverna here serves delicious traditional Greek fare.Would highly recommend hire of a car to fully appreciate the local area.
Cannot wait to go back!!!!

I stayed for six nights and would have loved to have stayed longer in the peaceful Antipata village of Erissos, some 2.5kms from the main town of Fiskardo to the East. I was allocated Apartment 6, a spacious, comfortable, clean, and well equipped with a balcony view out to the hazy blue Ionian Sea. A bottle of wine awaits you which is a nice gesture. It is cleaned on a daily basis. There is a good (free) Wi-Fi signal across the site, now essential for the traveller.

The owners are attentive, helpful and make you very welcome. The staff just excellent and friendly – Kelly on reception and Sofie looking after you at breakfasts as well as looking after one area of Apartments. I had breakfast on the terrace each morning and did enjoy the food. The Greek yogurt (grandmother’s recipe) is the best I have ever tasted and combined with local fruit – you cannot get better. Sofie’s omelettes – also very special.

The village has two restaurants, a mini-market, gift shop and an excellent café called “Picnic” (five minutes walk). I got an enjoyable packed lunch the day I climbed Mt Ainos (1,632m), the highest point on the Ionian Islands. "To Pefko" the restaurant/bar I used is excellent serving many authentic and well cooked Greek food. It also sells Myhos beer which is good. This restaurant features in “Walk & Eat Kefalonia” (published by Sunflower Books – www.sunflowerbooks.co.uk) – a very informative book on the Island. If you want a good map go for – Anavasi Maps (www.amazon.co.uk)

There are lots of well sign posted local walks and many more further afield and I did a lot of these as well as walking to three beaches – Dafnoudi, Kymilia and Embissi – all well worth the walk. The scenery all around the Island is just stunning.

If you are to travel to the North of the Island I would hire a car from the Airport as to take a taxi is very expensive.

For me a wonderful relaxing holiday before I flew to Athens. Do not miss out on the wonderful Island of Kefalonia.

Room Tip: Go for room 6.

Nice hotel, not too expensive. You reach Fiscardo in 5 minutes by car. Near the hotel (2 minutes walk), you have 2 excellent typical taverns. This hotel is quiet and clean, and the owner is very friendly and give you all the information you need.

I stayed 5 nights at Dafnoudi for my friend's wedding in Fiskardo this month, the stay was excellent. Kelly, the woman at reception, was very friendly and helpful and the owner himself was also extremely helpful in accommodating some difficult requirements I had for my stay. The apartment itself was very big and spacious, contained everything I could possibly need (safe big enough for my laptop, ironing board and iron, lots of storage space, balcony overlooking the pool area, cooking facilities - oven, hob, fridge etc) and I was pleasantly surprised to be welcomed with a bottle of complimentary wine on arrival. Each day my room was cleaned to an excellent standard and the cleaners were very non-intrusive when I was actually inside. The bar was great and, again, the staff there were extremely friendly and welcoming. Close to the apartments is a mini-market, restaurant and cafe (where the food is excellent). I did not try the breakfast or fitness centre so cannot comment on these. It is probably best to hire a car if you intend to visit lots of other areas of the island, although taxis to Fiskardo Harbour are only 5 Euros so if you don't intend to go far then taxis will be sufficient.

Me and my partner spent 3 nights at this wonderful hotel in may. The staff were so friendly, the room was tidy and clean, the bed was so comfortable and the location was perfect for a quiet peaceful holiday. Great location just a 5 min cab ride from the harbour. Amazing restaurants and scenery.
On our arrival home we realised we had left my partners chain in the hotel safe, we contacted the hotel who sent us the chain here in the UK. We were stunned at how helpful the staff had been , it was so refreshing to see there are still some honest people around!! Amazing holiday overall!!

I am happy to have stayed at this cute place. Situated next to the wonderful Fiskardo! Close to Myrto, Assos. The people working there will welcome you so warmly and take care of all your needs. Efi there is a darling! The rooms are like a doll house. Very clean and all the tools you'll need to cook a meal are there! Everybody should visit Dafnoudi! Value for money...just enjoy :)

Room Tip: all of them are wonderful. You can also contact the apartments. They will be happy to assist.
