They have only an old latch to lock the door!Anyone with a magnet could open this old door!U could see everything from the keyhole!
The a/c needed a maintainance because it smelled really bad.
The bathroom also smelled bad because of the drain.Of course it didn't have a window and the ventilation was broken!
The room was very small to move around 2 people in it.
The antenna of the t.v. was inside the room -they din't have a satellite t.v.- and we had to move around the antenna in every different channel we wanted to watch!
The walls had mould on them and the paint almost all over the room was chipped off.Also the pillows were very dirty.And all that for 90 euros!
The worst part is that something serious came up in we had to stoppage our vacation and hasten return back to Athens and they demand from us to pay them the half of the rest five days
that we booked to stay there!
Imagine our disappointment we had to stoppage our vacation,we paid them everyday 90 euros for terrible facilities and they wanted to get paid the rest of the money even if I was leaving
the room for personal problems.They didn't look at us as human beings but they look down on us as cash machines.
The only good thing about it was the view!
Kefalonia is a beautiful island,with fantastic beaches and beautiful places to visit.But hotels like "summery" makes your vacation unpleasant.
Unfortunately we trusted the photos that they have uploaded in their site and we believed that it was a beautiful and comfortable hotel to stay in but the truth wasn't in a bit like that...
Be carefull people,always read the reviews of others when u decide to stay in a hotel that u never heard something about it.

My wife and I are British although we have lived for some years in the dark heart of Italy. We are not easily impressed since our own home is in a very beautiful location in the middle of Italy and bordering one of Italy's most beautiful lakes. In the past few years we have visited a number of Italian islands: some good and other: bad experiences. This island surpasses all of those and to cap our great holiday, this family hotel was the icing on the cake.
The hotel is run by two charming sisters who have taken over the family business from Dad. Their hotel management style projects a family home by the sea environment and as other reviewers have remarked in the past, all the hotel staff are wonderfully hospitable, friendly and obliging. (one of the staff is in our submitted photographs)
The hotel pool and garden are immaculately kept and the pool is very clean and is great for doing a set of morning laps before breakfast!
The hotel is quiet and yet only a 5 minute walk into the middle of Lixouri which we felt has a charm and identity that Aristoli does not. We have loved our short break on the island to a degree that has us now planning another visit at the back end of this summer.
We wish the family all the best for the coming 'high season' and are most grateful for, by far, one of our most enjoyable holidays. (and we have travelled far and wide in gone by years!!)
Thank you for all your hospitality. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and although it is only rated with two stars with 2 star rates, we felt we were in a 4 or 5 star and certainly there are so-called 4/5 star hotels that could learn some hotel management style from this great family!

Summery hotel: well done!

Our stay at Summery Hotel was well worth our money. It is one of the few times where we can say that our vacation was well spent.
The personnel is absolutely professional and friendly. From the cleaning personnel, the maintanence guy to the owners.
The hotel is situated just 5 minutes outside the hustle and the bustle of Lixouri Town which is ideal if you want to enjoy a quiet stay without being isolated.
It has everything you need for a relaxed vacation. A swim at the beach infront of the hotel; a swim in the well-kept pool; a drink in the cool gardens; watch some TV on the patio; everyone there seems so relaxed (and I mean the visitors) that you really feel comfortable and at home.
The rooms are a little small, but that's really not a problem, because the facilities and the personnel really make you feel so welcome and at home that you hardly feel the need to spend time in the room, other than to lie down.
Everything is nearby; the square of Lixouri town, restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and the ferry to Argostoli.
It's an ideal location.
It was definitely worth planning our vacation there.

Not wishing to repeat myself on last years review but we have once again returned to reality with a bump. Yet another wonderful holiday in the Summery,the welcome is always warm and friendly, and the hotel spotless. In Lixouri there have been a few more changes, all for the better,new buildings in traditional style. We have booked up again for next year so watch this space.

We have stayed in the Summery twice and the second was even better than the first. The staff are fantastic. Lixouri is our favourite place in Greece. Unfortunately we cannot visit this year but will definitely be back next year.

Just returned home from yet another stay in Hotel Summery, idealy situated if you want to sight see or just relax and chillout. The family and staff always give a warm and friendly welcome and offer advice to help you make the most of your stay, the rooms are clean and airy with aircon/fridge/hairdrier all supplied and the most perfect views across the bay, within walking distance from the centre of Lixouri and a ferry ride from Argostoli. Looking forward to next years visit.

Have stayed at this hotel a few times. It is on a par with most greek hotels. Very clean a bit basic but comfortable and family run friendliness. Close to Lixouri centre. A good hotel at a good price.

Top Local Tips for Kefalonia

Taverns in Lixouri There are taverns in Lixouri that are mostly famous to the natives. A car is necessary. Taverna CAPTAIN NIKOLAS at Vatsas is a MUST! It's situated at Vatsa Beach. They serve fresh fish and great homemade dishes. The service is wonderful. You feel like you've been invited to someone's patio for real homemade food. Wonderful view. Has a swing for children. Do not confuse it with a tavern situated right on the sandy beach of Vatsa. Terrible service, food so-so and dirty. Good tavern is that of STATHIS situated further down from the Kipouria Monastery. Fantastic sunset view. Tables placed under olive trees. Kids can safely roam around. Good food. A small tavern in KONTOGENADA, next to Agia Thekli for the best souvlaki. Situated right next to the church of Kontogenada. I've been going to Lixouri for the past 5 years and these taverns have never disappointed us in service and food. Zormbas tavern inside Lixouri is also always good, although the service is a bit slow due to lack of staff.

Use Taxis We decided to use taxis instead of hiring a car. The taxi drivers had local knowledge and could recommend good beaches etc.

Friends Visit the restaurant you liked for the second time. You'll get a drink or two on the house for sure.
