We spent three nights at this elegant hotel in an executive suite on the top floor. We had a spacious balcony with lovely views of the coast and sea. Our room was spacious and newly decorated, and the windows were double glazed to ensure quietness.
The breakfast was fine, with plenty of variety, including freshly made omelettes, although coffee made to order incurred an additional charge. Different types of yoghourt and milk were available, but there were no labels indicating whether they were low or high fat, sweetened or unsweetened.
We wanted to explore historic Corfu Town and nearby areas without a car, and the hotel is very suitable to do this. A bus runs regularly into the old town - take the No.2 bus. Before you board the bus, buy your tickets at the kiosk beside the sea and save 40 cents on each journey.
We dined at a nearby Greek restaurant called Avli, which is highly rated on TripAdvisor. The food is wonderful and affordable. I enjoyed the vegetarian selections, including zucchini fritters and eggplant casserole and my husband found the meat dishes superb. To reach Avli, leave the hotel by the front entrance and turn left. Turn left again into the side street, walk for three or four minutes and you're there. Locals eat here too, which is an excellent indication of authentic food. Further on, there's a small supermarket and ice-cream place.
This is not an international chain hotel - it has a local flavour and feeling, and we'd love to return someday.
