Just back from a week at the Lorenzo with my daughter and would love to return! My daughter had been on the island with a conservation project for 6 weeks and met me at the hotel - she was far to early for official check in but it didnt cause any problem.
The hotel is maybe a little old fashioned, but is spotlessly clean and the staff were without exception helpful and friendly. We were in room 225 which overlooked both the gardens and the sea and had a good sized balcony. The room had television and fridge - there was also a large fridge for residents' use downstairs. The bathroom - loo, basin and shower - was small but perfectly adaquate and clean with a powerful shower and toilettries provided.
Breakfast was collected on a tray and could be eaten in the breakfast room, outside or in your bedroom. It was continental as expected - bread, jam, Greek yogourt and honey, cakes, ham, cheese, boiled eggs and cereal every day.
The outdoor areas were also clean and well presented but being beach fans we didn't use the pool or pool bar although other residents gave them very good reviews.
The bar was a cosy place to meet up after dinner with fairly gentle entertainment and fantastic cocktails made by Effie!
Argostoli is well within walking distance - it is particularly nice to walk along the coast road past the lighthouse - and the bus-stop is almost outside the hotel; 1.5 euros into town..
Being late in the season several tavernas were closed, but we ate well every night both in Lassi and Argostoli. Retseto and Tzorgas both very good in Lassi. My daughter wanted to get a take away from a restaurant in Argostoli and when we asked if it was acceptable the receptionist produced a pile of take away menus and phoned the order in for us!
We hired a car from Pefannis - only 90 euros for 3 days, although this was probably an end-of-season rate. 45 euros of petrol got us over 300 kilometres all round the island - not to be missed are Assos, Fiscardo, Myrtos and Antisamos beaches. Closer to home, Costa Costa beach is wonderful and less than 10 minutes walk from the Loranzo.
All in all a great trip and a lovely hotel!
