We booked this hotel for a week at the end of June after reading reviews on line , and we were not disappointed. The hotel has a stunning location in a fairly quiet unspoilt bay. All rooms have great views from their balconies of Ithaca and Cephalonia, as well as the bay itself.
Having only 17 rooms the hotel never seems busy and there was always plenty of room around the pool and in the restaurants. School holidays are probably best avoided if you don't want too encounter noisy children at the poolside, as happened on our last day, when I think the holidays must have started in Germany.
The Restaurant has a fantastic setting alongside the pool and overlooks the bay. I had read that the prices were high, but 20 Euros for 3 courses didn't seem too bad. It's the wine,as usual, that bumps up the cost: between 18 and 22 euros a bottle. Local Tavernas offer the same local wines at 8 euros a litre! The food is also very good at the two nearest tavernas around the harbour, where service is prompt and very friendly. All waiters speaking very good English.
At the hotel itself, all the staff were very helpful and friendly especially the receptionists. The waiter at the restaurant, Tasos was a joy. Nothing seemed too much trouble and he was always extremely polite but with a light touch.
As for the food, its good rather than excellent, but better value and just as good food is available in the Tavernas. Would recommend it anytime, but go bait earlier, maybe mid May or early June to avoid the heat - it was over 30 degrees most days!
