I found this hotel on Tripadvisor. I read the reviews. I couldn't believe that there was no exaggeration. That is until we experienced it for ourselves.
From the moment that I first made contact with Nikos the owner, I started to build a mental picture. The booking process itself was easy and very friendly. Nothing is left to chance here.
After booking and giving flight details we were met and warmly welcomed by Soula at the airport. What a lovely lady! Soula gave us our first taste of Kefalonian hospitality. During the short journey from the airport we drank from the bottles of iced water that we were given as Soula told us about the island and some of the local attractions.
When we arrived at the hotel we met the wonderful Maria. She checked us in, gave us al the information in a most helpful and feriendly manner. Throughout our stay, Maria made sure that everything was perfect. From the car hire to provision of beach towels and beach parasol and directions to the most amazing parts of the island. Maria is a tourist information wonder. Tavernas, beaches, history, culture, everything we asked was answered warmly and enthusiastically. Nothing is too much trouble.
The food at TBH was wonderful, be it breakfast or snacks or Dinner.
Nikos plays the part of mine host with a flourish. Always cheerful and joking but never tiresome or patronising.
Sofia and her restaurant and bar staff were also so helpful and very friendly too. They Just treat everyone as special guests yet you're quickly made to feel like old friends.
I can now see why people return year after year. It's not surprising that the TBH spirit also rubs off onto the other guests and everyone makes you welcome without being in any way overbearing.
This is the ideal place for the perfect quiet holiday escape. It's an adult-only hotel and it all works beautifully. A car is recommended as Kefalonia is just stunning and when you get out and about you find that the Greeks here are so warm and generous.
We've been to many places and experienced different formats and standards, but this is the one that has it all!
And no need to worry about the "plumbing" here, it's not a problem.
The world is a big place, but I'm sure that we'll be back here. I for one can't wait.
In summary...... It's gorgeous!
