My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in early July, having spent a week away sailing from the nearby marina. The staff are tremendous! Most impressive customer service Very welcoming and going out of their way to be helpful, very friendly, and caring for our every needs. Very good breakfast. Very convenient location for excursions and good bus service to Corfu town

The fact that this family-run hotel has so many repeat guests and diners is testament to the excellent service and value provided by the staff.
On a couple of occasions we dined elsewhere but quickly came to the conclusion that we should just stay in the Telesilla rather than settle for second best.
Rooms are spotless and well serviced
But the finest quality of this hotel is the atmosphere created by the family,really friendly,welcoming,helpful,and so keen to ensure that you enjoy your stay with them.
Well done to all

Room Tip: Just dine in the hotel

I have never stayed here but visit corfu regularly and stay at the marina. We have used this hotel during the day and spent many evenings here. The food is fresh and always served by friendly staff who can't do enough to make your visit memorable and are always happy to help. A beautiful friendly family run hotel, keep up the good work. Ps we love the Elvis night and also the Greek dancing. Much love to you all

Hi everyone, I was sad to see 1 bad review and had to write, we have stayed in this lovely hotel many many times, and felt I had to point out some miss leading things 1 the hotel is family run and families with children stay all the time its not just for the over 50s as he put it, we have been going since our early 40's and taken our granddaughter from the age of 4 she is now 17, and still loves going, people do make mistakes and all they had to do was ask why the bill was different and they would have checked and put it right, they get very busy in the summer, there are bus's that stop close and go all over Corfu for a couple of euros, you can walk to Govia along the marina or through the village only 10-15 mins were there are shops bars car and scooter hire, yes they hug everyone that is the Greek way and we love it,they never forget you or your names, even if you miss a couple of yrs, the food is excellent, and we have never had one bad meal in all our yrs going the rooms are clean comfy have free fridges and air con, some rooms are a bit smaller but think about it you really only sleep in it as your out all day and they all have balconys, I hope this helps anyone who may have been worried or put off, you can always ask me a question about anything on the hotel

Room Tip: I like the rooms overlooking the pool so you can sit and watch the entertainment, if you have childr...

I stay in many different hotels on business trips all over Europe and this, in my opinion is one of the best. It ain't The Ritz, it's better!

To be fair it's not 5 star luxury, but it doesn't pretend to be. What it is is one of the friendliest, if not the friendliest place I've ever stayed. Great food, highly recommend the Telesilla lamb, so tender.

Would definitely recommend it and there is evidently lots of repeat business. And I for one am sure to be back.
