An amazing Greek dinner enjoyed together with friends and the host couple made my special day very extra special, indeed. The kitchen enchanted fabulous tastes out of traditional Greek ingredients - lamb and vegetables. Let alone the chocolate cake!! The renovated building, unique rooms and garden has brought Greek history alive. If you are looking for a place which offers...

Perched on a gently sloping cliff, just ten minutes away from Argostoli, the George Molfetas Museum Hotel keeps alive the spirit of a true Ionian grand home, turning back time to a day when vintage hospitality was the standard. While more recent renovations have renewed with respect to its history and aesthetic its beauty, the Ionian home qualities and philosophy...

We were a group of friends travelling through Kefalonia and the boys had booked the hotel as a surprise! And what a beautiful surprise! We were first greeted warmly by Katerina and Barry, who were the warmest and friendliest hosts. We got shown around the hotel, and I couldn't decide which room is the most gorgeous as every single one...

We stayed for 4 nights with our 2 teenage daughters. Katerina was good enough to meet us at midnight off the long bus/ferry journey from Athens and gave us a reviving soup on arrival. The rooms were an incredible passage back in time. Full of memoirs from an earlier Greek age inherited from generations of Katerina's forbears. A lovely setting...

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is very good in several aspects – the quality of rooms, meals and above all – the warm hospitality of Katerina and Barry. Katerina initiated a complete operation to support our trip's goal – to memorize an occasion that took place 60 years ago. Her energy and very good spirit...

Dear Offer and family. I only have one thing to say: It is guests like you all that help us carry on with our hotel the way we do. We felt your love and good spirit all over us and our home. What else should one ask for? We love you and we thank you for everything.

Wow. I did not know what exactly to expect when I visited George Molfetas museum hotel in Faraklata. What I had planned was a relaxing getaway with my mademoiselle. I had hope to find somewhere charming, romantic, & one of a kind. I was not disappointed. I searched on the internet for such a place on Kefallonia. I discovered George...

We knew right from the start, as soon as Katerina and Barry came out of the front door to greet us that this would be unlike any other hotel experience : simply because we felt more like being at home than in a hotel (even though one gets all the comfort and privacy of a 5-star hotel). Katerina's impeccable sense...

This is one of the most unusual places I have ever reviewed for Tripadvisor. The value of this place is the absolutely fantastic food that Katherina cooks (the best food we have eaten in Greece), as well as the emotional personal relationship one develops with the owners of the hotel, Katherina and Berry. In this respect, to me, this is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Museum Hotel "George Molfetas" was meant to be a sanctuary for people seeking not only what the eye sees. It is an effort to bring to life the hospitality of the era it represents, the 1890s, which was the all-inclusive model of the luxury guest house. The actual impact on our guests is an immediate sense of being "at home." And this is our ultimate dream: to offer a home to the traveler and the dreamer of our times. ... more   less
