We have recently returned from our third visit to Kefalonia and the Pericles Hotel.I'm very pleased to say that nothing has changed and that's the way we like it!We holiday with our 3 young children and stay at this particular hotel with complete peace of mind and have never had any fears for their safety.As for the breakfast being boring,it is no different to eating cornflakes and toast every day at home!In fact there is a greater selection than on most British breakfast tables.Has Mr Silcox never heard of the saying "When in Rome do as the Romans"?When embracing another culture ,surely that applies to their eating habits as well.The best thing about this wonderful,unspoilt island is that it doesn't pander to the "Brits" all the time.
We too had the family room.It was spotlessly clean and the private terrace had twice the area of a balcony if one wished to "entertain".Also being tucked away would not disturb other guests who were sleeping.I am wondering why Mr Silcox needed a "seaview" in order to entertain in the evening.It was pitch black after around 9.30 so you couldn't see the sea anyway!
If Mr Silcox had wanted a fridge,T.V etc he should either have gone "self catering"or booked a 5* hotel.
As regards the staff of the Pericles,they are all charming,courteous and helpful.I appreciate Nikos is not everyone's cup of tea but we have found a friend in him.He is a charming,intelligent man with a great sense of humour.
All in all I would not hesitate to reccommend this hotel to those of you seeking peace and relaxation in a beautiful setting,with or without children in tow!
God Bless the Pericles and all who work there!
See you next year!
Being frequent visitors to the Pericles, we were distraught to hear that Nicos has gone. If anyone knows of his whereabouts or what he is doing now, please let us know. Thanks.
