The hotel is in a great location, right on the beach, less than a minute to the supermarket and under 5 minutes to the bars and restaurants. There are places to eat right on the waterfront and also in the square. We walked to Lepeda beach one day and also walked to Xi beach which is definitely worth a visit. Getting to the hotel from the airport was really quick, about 15 minutes in a taxi to Argostoli and then a quick ferry ride and a 5 minute walk to the hotel. The room we stayed in was a little tired and dated but it was clean, we thought it was good value for money. The staff were all very helpful, especially the lady serving food and drinks. The medicane hit during our stay and the staff did everything they could to get everyone fed and looked after. On the second day without electric or water we decided to cut our stay at The Summery short and checked out 3 days early, the manager called us a few hours after we had left to let us know they were going to refund us the 3 nights that we had not stayed-which we were not expecting at all and were very grateful.

Dear guests, thank you for visiting us and for posting your review in Tripadvisor! It was great meeting you and we hope we can see you again in the future; after all you owe to yourselves the 3 days cut short because of the extraordinary Mediterranean Cyclone Ianos, which we hope will never happen again! We are happy you enjoyed the rest of your stay though. Thanks again and take care The Summery team

the summery is located a 5 minute walk from lixouri's main square in a quiet street off of it own beach.there is a little occasional noise from the small supermarket up the road but only from the odd delivery and not early in the morning,small price to pay to be near the excellent supermarket which has everything you may need.the transfer from the airport seems daunting given there is a ferry crossing involved and considering the covid restrictions in force at time of travel was a pleasant enough journey.you can walk from the ferry docking to the hotel in about ten minutes if necessary.the hotel is well run and very friendly and clean although our room was a little small and could do with an upgrade as it's a bit tired it was comfortable.the fridge was tiny and has no ice maker for those cold drinks on the balcony we like before going out for the evening.however ice is freely available in the bar,although from the 3rd floor its a bit of a trek in the lift if you need a lot!it's difficult to rate the bar area and breakfast fairly as the covid regulations although scrupulously observed made it a bizarre experience with wearing masks,not wearing masks etc so i wont rate it as normal they did excellently in difficult unprecedented circumstances.bar prices are fair for a hotel and there was a good range of drinks available.the food was very good and a fairly wide choice and reasonably priced too.the staff ,angela alex maria deni and all the cleaners etc did a superb job of making us welcome and relaxed.the pool area was continually well cleaned and has very nice sunbeds and some lovely fourposter ones available too.the beach is excellent and at the rear of the hotel,the sea is shallow quite a long way out so good for kids and it's very calm as the bay is sheltered to the NW of argostoli,it is also good for snorkelling although we didn't try it.kefalonia is a beautiful place and a car is recommended to truly appreciate the whole island fully. on the thurs night before our return(sat evening)the so called 'medicane' hit lixouri and caused much devastation and flooding.the people of the town were caught out as it has never been experienced before,he whole place was out of power and fresh water yet they struggled on regardless.the people of the town,despite the anguish and shock they must have been experiencing never failed to smile and do their utmost to keep us safe happy and welcome,the summery staff in particular were outstanding in their efforts to make the guests'holiday continue as normal as possible in the already extreme circumstances brought on by the covid disaster,they deserved a better season than they got and i hope they can recoup their losses in 2021 and later,i shall certainy be returning soon.

Dear friends, thank you very much for coming to stay with us this particular, most unusual, year and for the empathy and concern you show in your review, we are deeply moved by it. It is probably going to be the last review of summer 2020 posted, so it summarises everything and leaves us with the sweet memory of a fight well fought and of an enormous gratitude for all the people who have made the Summery their home away form home for a few days or weeks and have trusted us with their safety and security. We feel grateful and humbled. Best holiday wishes to you and your family Titika and everyone at the Summery

We stayed for 10 days in Sept before the hurricane. A family run hotel, our room was small but otherwise ok, the breakfast was served from behind perspex screens due to Covid, but Eliza & her team did a good job & we ate outside on a nice terrace. There is a nice pool area & its straight out on to the beach. Lixouri is a good base & you can catch the Ferry to Argostoli which is lovely & see the turtles, but hire a car to explore this beautiful island. There’s lots of restaurants along the front & in the square, we particularly liked Spaventos run by Anthony & his wife & served by Joanna, they were lovely & friendly, they have blue & white comfy sofas right on the harbour front & serve lovely fresh food.

Hotel Summery is wonderfully placed on the beach just a few minutes walk from the bars, restaurants and shops. A happy hotel with lovely staff, very COVID-19 aware. Nice outside pool set amongst ,pine trees, four poster beds to sleep the lazy days away....pool water warm and inviting. We had the very best room (sorry)great views , top floor , smack in the centre of the building . Great breakfast...hotel next to a big supermarket...Thank god we missed the cyclone by one day, though we did have a minor earthquake when we were there...I have seen photos of the damage..and hopefully our Greek friends are putting the pieces back together.

Our third year in Kefalonia - yes we love the island though Lixouri was for us not on a par with either Lassi or Skala. The pros of the hotel were 1) pleasant pool with beach just behind 2)Fairly modernised reception area 3) Decent enough breakfast 4) Lovely lady who worked the pool area 5) A helpful Jet2 representative. The cons 1) Abysmal first room with an extra bed and a tiny balcony which when I saw it I was ready to fly straight home - after spending a night in a second room which was ok we finally sorted out a third room and payment of a supplement for a sea view 2) On two subsequent nights a neighbour on each side got locked out on their terrace - it appears that the patio doors had dropped 3) Very questionable safety of the electrics in our room (matter to be taken further with Jet 2 as my partner got awful electric shock before the whole floor tripped) 4) Staff appeared to be put out as probably labelled us complainers and therefore rarely managed a smile for the rest of the holiday. In summary, I had some sympathy for the owners in particular with the current Covid crisis and reduced income. The bedrooms from the 3 rooms that I witnessed required complete refurbishment including an electrical overhaul. A rather huge input of Euros is required rather than sticking plasters on a gaping wound !

Dear guests, thank you for visiting us in the most unusual of seasons and thank you for posting your observations, which we take very seriously. I would like to assure you that the staff didn't have any problem with you, on the contrary they were very concerned that you have had a series of problems and sincerely wanted to do their best for you to have a good time. We know Lixouri and our hotel was not your first choice and that you would have preferred to spend your holiday on a different part of the island and a different accommodation; it was the COVID emergency and the fact that most hotels in Kefalonia were closed that brought you to us. Nevertheless it was lovely meeting you and we hope to meet you again one day. Best Holiday Wishes to you and your family The Summery team
