This is a hidden gem and no wonder people go back year after year. The staff are very friendly and really look after their guests. Rooms are great, good size, in excellent condition and very clean. The only negative about the room was that the shower itself is a bit small.
Food is excellent and also great value for what you get. We were invited into the kitchen where we were shown the various dishes being prepared for dinner and explained how each was made. This touch made choosing our dinner even more interesting and our dinner so much more enjoyable.
We stayed there for a few nights before a sailing trip around Corfu from the nearby marina and the hotel was perfectly located for this. It is on a fairly busy road through Kontakali, but don't let this put you off.
