The biggest monastery has been beautifully and sympathetically restored and still houses an active group of monks. The frescos on the walls are both vivid and very beautiful, every surface is covered. All the wood was polished and brass circular candle holders suspended from the ceiling were gleaming and indeed did look like gold. It was a beautiful and calm place with scenic views in every direction, a wonderful place to contemplate a ...
... on a coach the front wheels are well back from the front of the vehicle. So it felt like half the time the driver and first row of seats were perched out over the edge with a significant drop. Sure in some of the turns the olive trees would have slowed our descent down the mountain but we really wanted to come down the mountain the same way that we went up – on the road. And what about the poor coach driver. Poor coach driver indeed. Sure he was hanging ...
Hi all, promise pictures tomorrow. The ship doesn't have a good enough network to allow me to do that.
We are at Dubrovnik, at a WiFi restaurant and have updated all entries with photos. We will upload the pictures from today in Dubrovnik.
... to lose control and settings changed so we have to sort it out as a priority tomorrow.There are parts of Corfu town we are yet to see and places to go further afield here to beaches and places of interest. This is one place that we feel we could return to and rent a car. With a port a day, bar on two days at sea, the schedule is quite busy. We are going to keep our days as simple as possible, as each port is new, and it seems a bit silly to ...
... Greek meal of seafood and souvalaki in the Old City of Corfu. Delicious !!! The owner welcomed us as if we were family. I was sure that he thought Gracie was Greek. Later Gracie left to visit the many shops in the platz, while I stayed at the restaurant and enjoyed talking to the owner about Corfu. He insisted that I tasted a traditional dessert wine made from cumquats. He joined me at the table and ...

Dreams remain after all this time!!
i have stayed at telemachos in the late 90's and in 2003, i also fully intend to do so again, hopefully this year. the owners and staff are really the most welcoming and nice people. they also run a very clean hotel with attention to detail. my only wish is that georges is still in charge of the dining room. coming from the fussiest foody in the world this is compliment indeed.
can't wait to get back.think about it all the time.
I stayed at Hotel Telemachos for two weeks with my family. On arrival, our bags were carried to our rooms for us and we were welcomed politely after a long journey. The rooms were pretty basic but they were what we were expecting for how cheap the holiday was. On the first day, we did find that there seemed to be a shortage of sunbeds but this wasnt a problem as we decided that our lilos were just as comfortable and there was plenty of room around the pool for these.
I recently stayed at the Telemachos hotel in Dassia and thought I would write a review that I hope to be helpful to people that may be staying there as I didn't really find any before I went.
On arriving in the middle of the night the hotel seemed a typical basic 2*. The room had a very uncomfortable squeaky bed which was extremely hard, and virtually flat pillows. But that aside, the hotel really grew on us as the staff were friendly and all the other guests were as well. Many of the guests returned year after year.
my wife and i stayed in the telemachos hotel in sept 04, we were branded as trouble makers because we dared to complain on arrival. the room which was damp,the manager and his wife were rude,the staff not very friendly.we went all inclusive and made to feel like paupers at the so called all inclusive bar which by the way looked like a shabby shack,the food boring,2 weeks thereand 1 fish meal,glad to get home i shall never go to that hotel again,hotel fine location if you are a mountain goat
I think this hotel was lovely & very clean.All the staff were very friendly!
I really enjoyed my stay, at the Tilemachos Hotel. The rooms were very basic, but for a 2 star it was brilliant. The rooms were very clean, and we made good friends with the staff. They were very friendly and very helpful! The pool always seemed very clean and there was light music to keep occupied whilst sunbathing! Non of us had any problems with the food either. The nightlife was a laugh at the hotel, as everybody was so happy, and lookin like they also were enjoying there stay! The only downside was that there wasnt a kettle in the room, for an early morning brew! And was defianately in the right place for easy access! So, overall id give this hotel a huge 8 out of 10, and i would defianately go back!
