3 years ago we arrived in Corfu on the boat we work on and have been based there since. We stumbled upon the Telesilla one night whilst looking for somewhere to eat. The lovely atmosphere and warm welcome drew us in and after a tour of the kitchen (which is spotlessly clean and run by an amazing team of lovely ladies!) a wonderful meal awaited us. And from that night onwards we were hooked. The delicious cuisine and fabulous setting are just wonderful, but the real gem in the Telesilla is the amazing team of people who run it. Makis runs the restaurant and is the perfect host. Friendly, attentive, a great laugh and super nice, and this flows through to the equally lovely Yannis & Michael the waiters. Nothing is too much trouble. Thomas the bar tender is simply fabulous. The cocktails are exquisite and his wonderfully warm & friendly personality provides an evening of entertainment! Elizabeth runs the hotel and is so warm and welcoming. Having stayed in the room several times, I have found them to be spotlessly clean, well presented and provides everything you need. The whole hotel is beautifully maintained and cleaned and is only a few minutes walk from the beautiful Marina, with its coffee shops, bars & restaurants. Corfu Town is ten minutes by taxi or 20 mins by bus, and being right in the centre of the island is perfectly located for exploring the North and South. The Telesilla is so much more than a place to eat and stay. It’s a family, friendships, great nights, laughing until your cheeks hurt and making many fabulous memories. People go once and return year on year. And it’s clear to see why. Stay here and enjoy an amazing holiday!!!!!
