Decided to get away for an end of season break in Corfu. Booked the Telesilla Hotel in Kerkyra. The hotel made an excellent base to explore the island and the staff at the hotel went out of their way to help with Car Hire and destination information. They really focus on their guests and nothing is too much to ask....

This family run hotel is a little Corfu gem. The Filippas family make each and every guest feel welcome and part of their family. The hotel although small is perfectly formed,rooms are spotless, comfortable and modern. Please go on a diet before you go because the amazing food is fantastic and they don't do portion control. Me and my family...

Undoubtedly the best family run hotel in Greece. We've had the greatest pleasure in visiting the Telesilla on four occasions ( and we'll continue too year after year ) Read all the reviews from all their clients, they don't lie. Everyone has the same opinion about this hotel. Great welcome from all staff members and the food, entertainment and cleanliness...

Once again the Filippas Family and staff came up trumps. Returning each year the Hotel never fails to impress. This year I took family and friends aged in their twenties to their nineties!
