Decided to get away for an end of season break in Corfu. Booked the Telesilla Hotel in Kerkyra. The hotel made an excellent base to explore the island and the staff at the hotel went out of their way to help with Car Hire and destination information. They really focus on their guests and nothing is too much to ask....

I have reviewed this hotel in the past but we visited it again this year. As always it never lets us down. I look forward to the welcome which I know we will receive.

This family run hotel is a little Corfu gem. The Filippas family make each and every guest feel welcome and part of their family. The hotel although small is perfectly formed,rooms are spotless, comfortable and modern. Please go on a diet before you go because the amazing food is fantastic and they don't do portion control. Me and my family...

Undoubtedly the best family run hotel in Greece. We've had the greatest pleasure in visiting the Telesilla on four occasions ( and we'll continue too year after year ) Read all the reviews from all their clients, they don't lie. Everyone has the same opinion about this hotel. Great welcome from all staff members and the food, entertainment and cleanliness...

We were recommended this hotel by Thomson rep after being discharged from hospital with 12 hours before next flight home and a need to rest after a head injury and concussion. A room was soon ready and we were very glad of the blackout curtains, soft pillows and comfy bed. Staff were very helpful, even printing off our flight tickets...

Once again the Filippas Family and staff came up trumps. Returning each year the Hotel never fails to impress. This year I took family and friends aged in their twenties to their nineties! All thoroughly enjoyed it with comments like "There was nothing I didn't enjoy" and "I want the same room next year". With 33 rooms, a delightful roof...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Telesilla is a fine 3-star family-run hotel ideally situated almost at the center of Corfu. The city of Corfu, its famous old town and both the island's airport and main port are only a 10-minute drive from the hotel and the prestigious Gouvia Marina is at walking distance. It's cosy and comfortable and has a reputation for its friendly and joyful atmosphere. All rooms include a new flat-screen satellite TV, new air-conditioning unit, free Wi-Fi, safe deposit box, a small refrigerator and a hairdryer. Iron and ironing board, baby cot and extra towels are offered on request. Our Business Centre (two laptops and printing services, available 24/7) and 24-hour wake-up call service as well as taxi service arrangements and plenty of luggage storage room are also available to all our guests. We offer a hearty buffet breakfast and our swimming pool and roof garden (equipped with sun loungers, umbrellas and showers) as well as the snack bar are available from 09:00 am to 18:00. At 18:00 pm, the pool restaurant and the cocktail bar start serving delicious homemade dishes and elaborate cocktails. In addition, we host live performances, including traditional music or lounge and jazzy styles, at least 3 times a week. Moreover, Telesilla is a perfect base for excursions and tours. The public bus stop, with frequent services to the city of Corfu, is a two minute walk from the hotel and, in case you want to rent a car or take a boat trip, our staff can give you all the information and handle all the arrangements. We can also suggest great places to visit. Telesilla is accessible to persons of reduced mobility to a satisfactory degree and has successfully served such persons in the past. ... more   less
