My sister and I stayed at this lovely small boutique hotel (only 9 rooms and a suite) in June 2009. The hotel staff is very helpful and hospitable. Yota, the main hostess, is a lovely person, who told us lots of interesting stories about life in Greece. The breakfast is very nice, with lots of fruit and home-made cakes. Yota told us especially to take some chocolate croissants with us to our hotel room after breakfast, because she didn't like to throw them away. Each day the hotel serves eggs in a different variety (boiled, scrambled, omelets) for breakfast, and if anything runs out it's immediately brought from the kitchen. The rooms are of a decent size, although the shower space is a bit small. Unlike most Greek hotels, Fiscardo Bay Hotel has excellent beds. The swimming pool is lovely. It's not big, but then the hotel was only half full when we were there, so this was not a problem at all. At the end of our two week stay, we really didn't want to go home yet.
Fiscardo itself is great for those who like to have a nice dinner in a seaside restaurant and drinks in a cosy bar later on in the evening. The village is only a five minute walk from the hotel, so you can just hop down and and get a bite to eat in the evening. Lord Falcon, the Thai restaurant in Fiscardo, I would recommend especially - lots of wonderful Thai dishes and their chocolate soufflé dessert is mouthwatering. Lagoudera restaurant was another favourite of ours, they serve authentic Greek dishes for a very reasonable price. Fiscardo is a beautiful village with a lively harbour. I never got tired of sipping drinks by the water while watching the boats come in. Some travel sites have stated that Fiscardo has become rather 'touristy' may be right in that it isn't completely untouched by tourism any more. Certainly, Fiscardo has shops that sell souvenirs and hats and so on. Actually, I quite liked some of the shops (they don't offer any of the cheap stuff you see elsewhere) and my sister even bought a pair of shoes there. Admittedly, when we were there early in June, Fiscardo wasn't at all crowded - probably as a result of the credit crunch. Kefalonia is lovely and well worth a visit, and I consider the northern area - Fiscardo especially - the most beautiful part of the island.
