We spent 6 nights at the Lara Hotel for a ridiculously good price, so we were not expecting the Ritz... On arrival, we were asked which agency we had booked through, even though we had just booked it ourselves, because most people staying at the Lara Hotel are there with a package tour. The room itself was a bit tatty...

Our holiday in Kefalonia was a bit of a last minute affair and we were very lucky to have booked the Lara. The hotel is about a 20 minute taxi from the airport (don't pay more than €30) and the drive there is beautiful as you see the sea as you drop down from the mountain. The staff are exceptionally...

arriving at the Lara hotel having booked late I expected a typical 2star budget style hotel. We where pleasantly surprised at the standard of the the hotel. The room we had had a lovely big balcony with sea & mountain and pool views. It was situated over the bar which maybe in peak season could be noisy but we could...

First day at Lara Hotel was not the best experience. We went there for our second wedding anniversary, and booked the room with a partial sea view - which was very important for us. Instead, we got a room in a basement (you can't even call it a ground floor, as it is below the main reception...). We didn't accept...

Went there early September so was not in peak season. Had an excellent time. The hotel always seemed to have at least 3 staff on duty who were excellent in their attentiveness and were always cheerful. The hotel itself had a patio with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. The pool was kept sparkling clean by daily maintenance and changing of...

We have stayed at this hotel previously, approx 8 years ago and it hasn't changed much, but we thought it was just as nice. The rooms were kept very clean,the breakfast was fine, and there was plenty of it whatever time you came down.It was what you normally get in Greece,bread,cheese, ham, eggs, yoghurt, cereal or fruit. The only downside...

The outside of the hotel looks ok, but the inside needs money spent on it, including the rooms!! I agree with other reviews that the rooms are kept clean & towels are replaced nearly every day, which is great, so well done to the cleaners. We loved NIcky behind the bar, & the rest of the staff were very freindly...

This was our 3rd visit to lourdas but the first to this hotel. Check in was quick and straight forward and we were greeted with very friendly staff. We agree with some reviews that the rooms are a bit tired but they are cleaned every day, clean towels and bedding 3 times a week so what more do you want...
