“love this hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

We have been going to Kefalonia since 1999 and have stayed in a few different places - but after finding La Cite last year, we cannot wait to go back again in August! The staff here become more like good friends than hotel staff....... I really missed them after I came home last year! Looking forward to seeing you on 22nd August, Janet & Gerri. xx

My family enjoyed a fantastic break in La Cite. My daughter and my grandchild spent 3 weeks during May and early June 2013. The staff offer a lovely welcome as well as catering for your every wish. The room was perfect and the price very good value with continental breakfast every morning. My daughter paid extra for the fridge as we thought having a young child she would need chilled water and snacks etc. This however was not really needed as the hotel has a well stocked bar and fridge in the dinning area. This hotel is perfect as a base to explore the Paliki and the rest of Kefalonia. Thank you 'La Cite' for a very good 3 weeks.

I stayed here with my husband for a week from the 30th June to the 7th July. It was the most relaxing holiday I have ever experienced! It was so chilled out and relaxing with a really quiet pool and plenty of places to relax in a lovely setting.
what makes this hotel so special is the staff - Jerry and Janet are fabulous!!! - they really do make your holiday, they cannot do enough for you. Where else do you get a hug when you leave? Janet and Jerry make this hotel worth staying in above and beyond anything else.
People have said about the breakfast not being great I thought it was more than adequate! - lovely fresh bread, a toaster, greek yoghurt, peaches or mixed fruit, cereal, plenty of coffee and juice and every other day ham and cheese, oh there are also boiled eggs and lovely jam every day!
Lixouri itself is a lovely place, not commercialised and was nice to see people going about their business, it wasn't full of tourists which I liked!
Our room wasn't huge but we had a big balcony, shower, comfortable large bed and a fridge. There is also air-con which you have to pay for but we didn't use as there was a lovely breeze when we were there!

Just returned from our second visit to this wonderful hotel. This time we brought our daughter and husband who wanted to see what we had previously raved about and they were not disappointed. We were greeted like long lost family and made even more welcome (if that's possible!) by all the staff including Janet , Gerry and Roula. They honestly cant do enough for you and Litsa ( not sure of the spelling) who is the owners mother, is an absolute jewel!

The hotel is immaculately clean and the pool is fabulous. Some days its like your own private pool.

We learnt from our last visit that the best way to transfer from the airport is to take a taxi from the airport to Argostoli then catch the ferry to Lixouri. From there it is a 5 minute walk to the hotel.

I really cant praise this place enough but feel a bit reluctant to let everyone else into the secret of this amazing find!! We hope to return as soon as possible.

My husband, sister-in-law and I stayed at La Cite for two weeks last month and it was absolutely brilliant. The reviews are true, Janet and Gerri couldn't be more helpful and we were made so welcome. We took a taxi from the airport to the port at Agostoli, crossed by ferry and a four minute walk brought us right to the hotel door. If you can't face the walk with luggage a taxi from the harbour is just 2 eus. The hotel itself is small and friendly and kept spotlessly clean. The pool and gardens are lovely with plenty of seating/sunbeds and shade provided by the large canopy umbrellas or if you prefer, lemon trees and other shrubs in the immaculately kept garden. A truly relaxing and lovely quiet oasis in the middle of this small town yet only 4 minutes from the many bars and restaurants, many of which overlook the harbour and mountains beyond. We will definitely return, as do many of the guests we met during our stay. Thank you Janet and Gerri for a truly relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the gardens are lovely and quiet and the balconies shaded when you return from...

We stayed at La Cite for a few nights and we were very happy. Prices are reasonable, staff is very polite and helpful. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are ok and air-conditioned.
The location is very convenient, easy to get there by car (just put it on the GPS and you will get just out of the door easily) and there are enough parking spots in the surrounding streets.
Also, the hotel is very close to go on foot to the central square and to the beachfront of Lixouri.

Definitely recommended!!

Room Tip: Choose a room on the second or third floor for better view.
