Hotel Summery
Ranked #2 of 11 Hotels in Lixouri
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 September 2017

We booked the Summery because of the great reviews and we were not disappointed. 3 wonderful weeks. Firstly the hotel and grounds was spotless and I know everyone says the staff are so welcoming and friendly and that is an understatement. We always make an effort to interact with staff, when on holiday. Titika is a lovely lady and her artwork is inspirational which I had pleasure in bringing one home. Dennis is the knowledge of the island and pointed us in all the right directions when we hired a car for 5 days. We went North South East and West and only scratched the surface. Maria on reception is a happy lady always eager to help. Anastasia another gem at breakfast and lunchtime everything with a smile. Anna the best cocktail maker in Lixouri and a Bloody Mary expert. The entire staff would do anything for you and nothing was too much trouble. Our maid Liliana made us smile everyday, with our monkeys ( who have been all over the world) we would come back to a note every day. This 2 star hotel punches way above its weight and is highly recommended. There is a Supermarket just behind. Lixouri square is a 5 minute walk with beautiful restaurants (V & S being our favourite) with ferry over to Argostoli. People say the cupboard space in the room may be limited but we stayed for 3 weeks and found a place for everything. People also mention the breakfast, we found the choice more than sufficient scrambled eggs on toast and fresh fruit and yoghurt and hubby had the works it's Greece expect Greek food!. When we come back to Kefalonia we would definitely come back to this beautiful hotel. 1 negative the tap water is so salty! It took a couple of days to work out why my morning tea tasted strange! I had bought my own kettle and we used bottled water, problem resolved. Dave and I want to say a BIG thank you to all for making our holiday truly memorable. Here is a few pictures to make you smile

Room Tip: sea view 2nd or 3rd floor

Dear friends,
it was such a pleasure to have your lovely family at the hotel for 3 weeks, and, reading this review now, it brings back so many memories of last summer! The staff adored your little monkeys and all of you have been such sweet and wonderful guests! Thank you for staying with us and for posting your review. We appreciate it more than we can say and would love to have you again at the Summery if your travels bring you back to our island.
Take care, best wishes

Stayed for 2 weeks. Booked with Jet2holidays. Paid £1500 B&B and sea view. Coach from airport to ferry took about 25 mins. Ferry then took 25 mins. Taxi from Lixouri port took 2 mins. It is easily walkable from the port. This is a typical Greek 2* accommodation. Basic / dated but clean. Right opposite supermarket.
Girls you will need your own hairdryer as the one in the room was poor.
2 plug sockets in the room.
Breakfast was not good for me at all but plenty of others enjoyed it.
Small soaps and shower gels provided.

A previous reviewer states the bathroom has an open drain/sewer. I disagree with this. There is a grid which takes water from shower and sink NOT the toilet. There is no exposure to sewage. Additionally, rooms have bolts on the inside so you can be secure in your room.

Pro's:
1) Fantastic location. Best hotel out of them all. Great beach.
2) Staff were warm and welcoming.
3) air con
4) safe
5) great pool with shower
6) plenty of sun loungers.
7) cleaning staff were thorough daily
8) amazing sea and pool views from the back rooms.
9) good hot shower
10) black out shutters
11) 24 hour reception

Cons:
1) small room
2) insufficient clothes space
3) wooden furniture old and jammed. Came home with biceps like Arnie trying to open and close the wooden wardrobe drawers. Very very annoying
4) morning noise is ridiculous from housekeeping.
5) hard beds. Like sleeping on concrete. I didn't get one full decent nights sleep.
6) Buffet Breakfast layout is cramped and chaotic.
7) very small single shower cubicle. Some rooms have bigger showers apparently.

We loved the Summery. Spotlessly clean, friendly and a great breakfast. We had a 'town view' room which was fine for us as we rarely sit on our balcony. Our room on the second floor had a great double shower, a safe, fridge and air con at no extra charge.
We loved the location of the hotel so much. It was lovely to be able to swim in the sea without a long trek to the beach. And it was great to take the short stroll into town to enjoy the many bars and restaurants. There is a great supermarket just across the road too.
Cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Stayed here for 3 days at the beginning of August.
Slight problem when we first arrived with the booking but this was rectified and WAS NOT the hotels error.
Rooms are basic but clean.
Public areas are very nice including garden area - lovely spot for breakfast.
Nice pool - small but a really good temperature on a hot day.
We hired a car from the airport - Top Tip ... there is a car-ferry that goes from Argostoli to Lixouri. It is really cheap and only takes about 30 mins. We enjoyed the scenery on the way there but took the ferry back!

Stayed here for a week and it was lovely. Location is perfect, next to the beach, supermarket not far from door and main town only a short walk. The hotel has wifi which was fine for us, never bothered with TV so couldn't tell you if there are any channels worth watching. Bedrooms are small but adequate. Food is superb and lots of it, prices for food and drink are reasonable. All in all for the star rating of this hotel you will have no complaints and thoroughly enjoy your visit.
