First impression is that it's all so small - hotel, rooms, breakfast - but after a day and realising this is Kefalonia at it's best it's just soooo relaxing. All hotels are small - you just can't see any in Lixouri ! At least this one has a pool which is uncrowded and good temp. Beer is v cold (shall I carry on ???). Staff v friendly and helpful. They charge for A/Con which is disappointing as most operators suggest it's in (E5 pd). So many people stayed here that had been before - that says something! All restuarants (off square/by sea) were very good and reasonable.. Square is too busy.
If you are wondering how to get here - defo taxi: airport to ferry, then across to Argostoli (E2.50) and then walk directly forward (on getting off ferry!), past square, up the road beyond, then it's on your left. Simples.
We hired a car for a week as nice to see some beaches (esp sunset (and meal) at Petani beach - 1/2 hour away - see other revus), other sites: St Gerasimus monastery, Assos and walk up to castle (altho castle here and St George have little to see and St G mostly closed.
Realised 3 day car hire (from Argostoli) is probably more than enough if you want to do mostly pool/sun time.
