This is a basic hotel with simple rooms, shower only in the bathroom and shouldn't be compared with hotels in, say, Spain where they have progressed to much higher levels. That said, the rooms are well appointed and kept meticulously clean with fresh towels and regular change of linen. It is better than other hotels of this type that I have stayed at on other Greek islands particularly as here the rooms are air conditioned. The breakfast consists of all sorts of things from cheese and ham to cereals and "fresh fruit of the day" for want of a better expression! The snacks from the bar, which we had on a couple of occasions, were also excellent and the fish was as good as in any restaurant in the resort and better than some! There are plenty of tavernas and bars nearby but the hotel is far enough away to allow for a peaceful stay. I personally found the service in the tavernas a bit hit and miss although the food was generally good throughout the resort, with a few notable exceptions. The hotel owners arranged for taxis for us from and to the airport, although it is very do-able by ferry from/to Agostoli and then taxi which would be a cheaper option. €50.00 each way by taxi between the hotel and the airport which, if split two or three ways is not bad. The Island itself is quite beautiful and one can benefit considerably by the hire of a car for a few days. Public transport is available and proved reliable but takes a bit of advance planning for days out around the island. The tone of our stay was very much set upon arrival by the charming receptionist who greeted us with "Hello I am Maria welcome to the Summery Hotel!" All the staff from the owners to the room maids could not have been kinder or more helpful. Whether serving breakfast, lunch or late night drinks the lovely girls, who must all surely be related to Aphrodite, could not have been more friendly or attentive.
A marvellously run family hotel that I recommend without hesitation!
