Booked this hotel for 2weeks on B&B basis through Hotels 4u and a Thomas Cook flight from Manchester, staying from 21st Sept till 5th Oct. This hotel is a 7km taxi ride from the airport at a cost of 18euros e/w, basic holiday cost (less meals and spends) under £1000.We considered this a bargain.
On arrival we were met by Elena on reception who,as the holiday progressed, became more of a friend than staff and helped us find our way around.The apartments are on 2 levels and we had requested pool view,sea view double bed and bathtub and were taken to room 37 which had it all and at no extra charge. WiFi worked in this room which was an asset many other rooms did not have.Sat out on the balcony we could see the sun rise in the morning over the mountains and set at night over the bay,stunning.
We took breakfast out on the terrace every morning sat by the pool and although it could have been a little more varied it was adequate,and the Greek yoghurt topped with honey became a daily indulgence.
The Princess has only 46 apartments so there was always space round the large pool and no need for towel on the bed at 6am madness.The best beach Makris Gialos is directly opposite the hotel and just a short walk down.Kefalonia is quite hilly and a lot of accomadation is up steep climbs so do your research before you go.The Princess is on the road from Lassi to Argostoli at the quiet end of the strip with two supermarkets close by where you can get everything you could possibly need and tavernas if you dont want to walk too far.Further on the strip you find more bars and tavernas (we ate somewhere different every night)we never had a bad meal during our entire stay paying 30 to 40 euros for 2 courses and 1 Mythos and 1 rose wine.
We do like to walk a lot on holiday and at this time of year it was not too hot to get about the island ,the walk to Argostoli along the costal Fanari Road takes around 1hr30mins through the olive groves and round to the bay .We took the ferry accross to Lixouri ,takes around 30mins and costs 2euro50,had a look round and came back 2hrs later,nice way to spend half a day.
I would recommend a visit to LOGOS Grand view which is half way along the strip and 100yds up at sunset,the views as the sun sinks over the bay are sensational and his cocktails are pretty good too.
This was our first visit to Kefalonia and hardly scratched the surface of things to do on this beautiful island but Lassi and the Princess Hotel were a great start and we"ll definately be back.

Room Tip: upper apartment sea view perfect

Having visited this hotel 24th sept to 1st oct.we thought the hotel and staff were lovely.
However we had a real problem with the room we were allocated we were 3 adults 1x69yrs 1x68yrs and our 44 yr old daughter we had a room approx. 11feet x 12 feet 3 beds no room to walk round so had to stack bedside cupboards on top of each other.
Couldn't unpack ,couldn't get changed,couldn't sit on the balcolny, I am sure prisoners
get more space ,on complaining at reception they were most apologetic but there were no more
rooms only if we paid 43euros per night we were not prepared to do.So we complained to the rep
she was as useless as a chocolate tea cup.She never came back to us the whole holiday.
The hotel did change us for the last 3 nights and our rooms were a joy.
On returning home and e mailing the travel agents they seem to think all this is quite acceptable
and they stated they like to think that our accommodation is like from home to home (dread to think were they live) Let me just warn you you do not get what you see on the web site they do not show the normal standard rooms only the special rooms with separate bedrooms and this is what you think you will get well you don't.
After all this we did have a lovely time and liked the hotel very much just not very happy with
customer service and wont be travelling with this company again.

Room Tip: just make sure you know what you are booking

Having not been to Lassi before we were a bit surprised at the geography of the place . It is one main road containing more than enough good quality, reasonably priced, bars &restaurants. The hotels & apartments are off the road either up or down the hill many of which can not be seen from the road. The Princess is one of a very few actually on the road albeit on the outskirts but the walk in is flat & short. What no one tells you is that the main beach opposite the hotel is down a massive hill & popular with younger people , lots of locals, who like loud music. There are several quiet beaches nearby but they are further to walk and down the hill again. The hotel is very quiet, rooms on the small side but always clean. Our balcony struggled to accommodate the 2 of us at the same time! Staff pleasant and helpful. The breakfast, not good, I think they try & accommodate too many options & end up with a buffet that is neither good nor bad but kind of so so. No problem with sunbeds, nice friendly resort, hotel much as expected.

Room Tip: Ground floor with terrace so you can sit outside

I stayed at the Princess Hotel for one week from Saturday 21 September 2013 on a bed & breakfast basis. The buffet breakfast was extensive and I had no problems whatsoever with the food, the pool area was fantastic with free sunbeds and the food at lunchtime was responsible for a few extra pounds at the end of the holiday! The owners and the staff were lovely, professional and pleasant at all times. We were lucky that we had a large bedroom and bathroom. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning and safe were both free which was a bonus. We also had complimentary toiletries which I have never had before in Greece and I have stayed on several islands over the years.

Room Tip: I would opt for a ground floor room if I had the choice.

This was my first time to Greece and I was not disappointed. I had a wonderful holiday. Myself and my boyfriend arrived at the Princess Hotel on 15th Sept till 26th.The hotel looked amazing from the road and as we walked in we were greeted by Helena who was very very friendly and helpful and even hugged us on our last day. The bar and restaurant and pool area was very stylish and relaxing. It looked amazing. The room was basic but really clean. It could do with updating but we were very comfortable there for 12 days.
Greek night at the hotel was great, even the owner got up dancing. She seemed a little austere at first but then she came over and chatted to us. Breakfast was very varied and even had poached eggs on a few days.
Spiros, Gerrasimo and Virsilli were all great and helpful they kind of became friends. I would definitely go back to Lassi it is sooo beautiful and when I do I know where I want to stay. THE PRINCESS HOTEL. A huge big thank you to everybody who really made our holiday.
