People who complain have clearly come to the wrong place. How can so many people write such good things about the hotel? The whingers are in the minority . The owners and staff are wonderful Stelios most certainly does not merit any of the negative comments. Maybe the people who say not nice things should look at their own behaviour... More

My girlfriend and I have had a relaxing holiday in Kefalonia and we choose the Pericles Hotel as basis for our island trips. We liked a lot the location: all beaches and attractions of the island can be easily reached by car and the village of Sami is distant only about 30 minutes walking (by following the secondary road without...

This is the second time we have been to The Pericles. If you are expecting luxury you have come to the wrong place. What you get is a friendly but basic hotel. The swimming pool is excellent and all the staff are very friendly. The rooms are spacious. Have to say one of the reasons why I have marked down... More

We stayed recently at Pericles Hotel and having read the previous reviews both good and bad we thought we would list our own observations. PROS The hotel is in a beautiful location with magnificent views of the mountains. It is surrounded also by small holdings with cats, dogs, chickens, goats, peacocks etc walking around. Opposite the hotel is a lovely... More

Dont listen to negative reveiws we loved it. Basic but thats 3☆ Greece clean with regular towel and bedding change. Staff friendly and helpful breakfast fine and... More

As you will see from reading the reviews for the Pericles, there are basically two opinions, 1, that it's great, and this is tends to be from people who seem to return to the place, (god only knows why), and 2, that it is, to put it mildly , a bit crap, and this is the side that I'm on!... More

Can I start by saying I have just read some of the reviews from the Pericles and these people must have stayed in a different hotel to us. To compare it to aushwitz is an insult for a start to all those people who endured this. Also to compare it to a Turkish prison well ,words fail me.We have been... More

You get in life what you pay for and sometimes a little more. This is a decent place to stay it's no frills so don't expect the RItz. The staff are a nice and friendly bunch . If it's sounds like they are shouting or excited it's because the are Greek. It's a very clean place and the pool area... More

This is the 4th time we've stayed at Pericles and it's as good as always. Having a wonderful holiday. I think the people who criticise this hotel need to remember it's 3☆ - it's spotlesly clean with friendly, helpful staff. Yes Stelios is around on a morning - he's making sure there is bread, coffee, etc. and restocking as supplies... More
