Hotel Avra
Ranked #4 of 18 Benitses B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 7, 2011

Just back to the UK after staying 2 weeks here and absolutely loved it. The Munros are so friendly and share a wealth of knowledge about what to do in Corfu. The rooms are so clean and beautifully decorated. The location in Benitses town is perfect, shops and restaurants on their doorstep (Big Bite!), 1 minute to the beach, within walking distance to Achillion Palace and a short bus trip into Corfu Town. It is a reliable service with a bus stop right outside the hotel. We were treated like family rather than guests and would recommend this hotel to everyone!

For those who like to travel...without the "tourist" feeling! Somewhat individualistic, but still with the feeling that "friends" are there for you when you get back to your room. (By the way, at any time of day!) Any questions will be answered, help - if needed - is a certainty, get to know the other quests...or be on your own with the privacy needed - you will find everything - at Hotel Avra.
I had booked a room in Avra over an agency for 2 days - had a 2 week stay in Greece - my plans had changed and I was in need of a room for a whole week. Called Sarah-Jane - her answer "Oh dear, don`t worry about the price - I`ll put you up" Since I was getting off a sail boat Sarah-Jane came to pick me up at the pier. Now this deed was out of pure helpfulness!
I had, as a single woman, an exceptionally great week, got the best tips, was off in a car for three days, breathed in Korfu......and left my 2 week vacation feeling wonderful!
All singles out there - get out and travel. If you are lucky - you`ll find the right places to stay and meet great people while doing so. Just like I did at Hotel Avra - with Andy, Sarah-Jane and Jamie!
Greetings to everyone,

Thank- you sooooo much for taking the time and effort to write your review and for your INCREDIBLY kind comments -especially when looking at other places you have visited - and for posting the pictures as well!
We have also taken on board the "cons" and will try harder in future - firstly changing the floor colour in 37 - cream was not the best option!
All the best for future travels!!
Thanks again - Sarah-jane, Andy and Jamie

Hotel Avra is a friendly, family run Hotel in Benitses. We stayed for a week in both a standard room and then a deluxe room. Both rooms were clean and had everything we needed. The deluxe room even had air-con and a balcony. The whole time we were there it was very quiet. The owner, Sarah-Jane, was always on hand to help us with our inquiries and make suggestions.

Best thing was, the hotel is a stones throw away from the beach and the main strip with shops and restaurants.

Benitses is a great beach-side town in Corfu, with good beaches, but is not over-crowded with tourists. It is also only a 20 minute bus ride to the Old Town.

This is a good place to stay if you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the beach.

We spent 8 days at hotel Avra. It was a really delightful stay! First of all, we found out that it is really clean. Then, we establish a really nice friendship with the owners, who gave us some useful tips to travel and enjoy Kerkyra. The breakfast is good, with some typical Greek products (and sometimes they served us their own fruits!). The position is good, only 15 kilometres away from Kerkyra, and it is quite simple to reach. We recommend the hotel to everyone who wants to enjoy a calm holiday in a family environment!
