Good holiday in Skala Greece.
We had a lovely 2 week holiday in Skala at the Zephros Hotel. The staff were very friendly and the maid service was great.
Not for anyone with walking difficulties though, you could walk into Skala as it was downhill but had to get taxies back. We have been to Skala 3 times within the last 18 mths as we love it so much. We would defiantly recommend The Zephros as the views are fabulous, both pools are great and very clean. Andreas the owner is very friendly as were everyone.

Very Chilled Hotel and resort
The hotel is great place to chill out in a very relaxed atmosphere as is Skala.
As mentioned in other reviews and in the brochure there's a 400-500m walk from the sea front to the hotel and it's steep as you near the hotel. There were plenty of 'not so young' people#like us# who could manage it, so just bear it in mind.
The hotel is well run but in a laid back way. The rooms are cleaned daily and beds are comfortable. The shower was hand held but plenty of hot water. The pool was big enough for the number of people staying there and was kept spotlessly clean. There are no facilities in the room to make hot drinks#for that first cuppa#,luckily we were aware from another review so we took a small travel kettle. There is a small fridge in each room for your cold stuff.
We had no problems with our room#s# but feedback from another couple suggests that any problems are quickly dealt with.
The Continental breakfast was the normal 'Greek style' and never varied but was of good quality. A freshly cooked breakfast could be purchased if you fancied a change.The bar food choices were much the same as anywhere and were good value.
Many guests return on a regular basis and we would consider going again.

We had some dramatic storms when we arrived at hotel, the locals are used to it I think.Then lovely hot weather for October. Things were winding down in the resorts, but we didnt mind as it was peaceful, and no one hassles you in the town. Everyone seemed friendly and laid back, where ever we went.
We enjoyed the hotel. It was very laid back and relaxing. The cleaner came in every day. Breakfast was basic, but you could have other things cooked for you, for a few euros. There was no TV in the room, and the one in the bar was never on. But all the bars in town had football on for the men who cant live without it!
The hotel is in a lovely position, fantastic views, but quite a hill to climb coming up from town (mostly in pitch black. as street lights werent working) We hired a car, which was well worth the money, as we found some beautiful beaches, and places to go. We would love to back soon.

Holiday in kefalonia
We stayed at the zephyros hotel in kefalonia, it is in a beautiful location but very isolated up a very steep hill, rooms were basic but clean, shower left a lot to be desired! No where to put the shower head so we had to hold it while we showered which is easier said than done! They really need to improve the breakfast as its a bed and breakfast establishment, very boring, and the same every day, just cereal and bread and jam, yogurt and fruit, all in all an ok holiday that needs lots of improvements,ideal if you want a quiet getaway

Fantastic family run hotel!
Lovely hotel, clean and all amenities that we needed were available. Andreas and his wife Voula especially are fantastic hosts! We were even invited to their family BBQ as we were the only guests as the season had just started. It was a wonderful holiday. The only thing I would say is to pack good walking shoes as its a trek into to town!

Wonderful spot for a quiet relaxing holiday
Stayed here for 12 nights in mid September. Lovely simple small hotel with great pool and bar area, and run by delightful owners who speak perfect English and are always totally helpful. Will probably return.
