“Lovely Hotel, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed 7 October 2010

We had originally planned on visiting Kefalonia a bit later in the month but are so glad we amended our itinerary since the hotel (and the entire island for the most part) closes for the season the second week in October.

The Princess Hotel is beautifully laid out with a nice pool and very lovely common areas. The staff is very friendly and most speak impeccable English (the family that own it, originally from Kefalonia, spent many years in New Jersey). There's also a beautiful beach just across the street and they serve a nice breakfast included in the price as well as a good dinner and a good bar.

Our room had a nice view and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was basic and nothing to rave about but was fine for the most part. I'd definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

Princess hotel is a jewel just a few feet from Makris Yalos, a beach with golden sand and crystal clean waters with spectacular surroundings that captures the imagination made my holidays an unforgettable dream.
The hospitality and the friendliness of the owners, the kindness of the staff, the clean and beautiful rooms, the delicious meals the vivid Greek & international nights, the swimming pool and the fantastic courtyard with the finely manicured lawns have made me captive of my desire to return many more times in the future to this imaginary site.
I strongly recommend it!!!

Plus points: Decent room, balcony with garden view, helpful staff, lovely pool. Free air con and safe in room (not always the case in Greece). Very clean. Fridge.

Negatives: Just the breakfast really. Juice was not fresh and most days there was no fruit. When there was it was canned peach slices! If we had been paying extra we would only have eaten there once, as it was we couldn't be bothered to go down for it a couple of days. Also, lots of steps which was fine for me but if you have mobility problems or pushchair etc it could be a pest.

The Princess Hotel was the pefect base for our holiday in Kefalonia. Our first impression of the hotel was how pretty it was with it's lovely grounds and unique character. The food was very good and the friendliness of the staff outstanding.

We went with our 7 year old son who enjoyed the pool and the beach (which is just a 2 min walk away) - it really is a perfect retreat for families or couples looking for a quiet holiday.

We have never loved anywhere enough to want to return, but the beauty of the island along with the high standards of he Princess make this well worthy of a second visit.

we stayed here with a large family group of 12 aged from 9 to 74 ! delightful staff could not do enough for you . great location near to the beach although quite a steep slope back up ! great pool area with bar ! beautiful beach with aqua blue sea & a fantastic beach bar with 4 poster beds ! all of my children aged 9-21 loved the hotel . lots of good value restuarants and bars within a short walk . Kefalonia is a gem of an island with a lovely colonial feel to it . All in all a brilliant family hotel . rooms a little small for 3 and food fairly basic but in terms of having a great holiday it was ideal .

We got back on 19th June 2010 after a two week stay at the Princess. We had stayed there in 1995 and 1997 when we had a smaller room with a small balcony which we had been happy in. This time we were given a family room - Number 42. There is a steep climb up the slope from the pool to the room which made me somewhat breathless at 71years of age, so I will request a lower one next time.
The set menu in the evening is an excellent deal at 15Euros per head, A three course meal with a choice of three for each course. Going to a taverner, you will get one main course at 7.5 to 10.5 Euros and a sweet course for 3.5 to 5.5 Euros, soup course similar to sweet.
Ok if you want the walk try the others, we has one particulary ropey experience.
Generally you will need 80 to 100 Euros per day for a couple. Prices generally are dearer than the UK. But that is before tomorrow's Emergency UK Budget.
The First Choice pictures of the hotel are the best and the hotel has inproved a lot since 1997. We will definitely go to the Princess again.

We stayed in a family room right at the back of the hotel It had 2 bedrooms and a huge bathroom. The staff were excellent and fussed over our children, they even brought toys for them to play with. Breakfasts were not as bad as previous reviews make out, and are typically Greek as served in most hotels in Greece.
We found the week there totally relaxing and couldn't fault anything.We stayed in Skala last year and visited the hotel . We were told to make ourselves at home and use the pool and facilities. A lovely hotel which I am sure we will visit again.
