Crystal Palace is a lovely family-run small self-catering hotel. Nik and his family are so welcoming and warm. The rooms were always clean and well looked after, as was all the public areas. My husband and I enjoyed the location of the hotel as it was only about a 10 minute walk into Skala, but far enough away to be...

We, that is my wife and family have been coming to Kefalonia since 2002..(30 times in total) we have stayed in many places over that time but for us staying at Crystal Palace is like home from home. Like wearing a comfy pair of slippers or an old cardigan. Total chillout time... The owners and staff are so so friendly...

Accommodation is excellent but for a family budgeting they ought to know up front the extra costs e.g. For two weeks holiday before June the cost for the air conditioning and safe is €120. In addition while our room was excellent it was never going to receive any sun on the Terrace. The pool is a lovely area but as...

Studio was great with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The food at Crystal Palace was good quality and very well prepared and we had quite a...

Another fantastic week based at The Crystal Palace and as per usual no complaints. Nik, Vicky, Efi and Irene are truly lovely people who do all they can to make your holiday enjoyable. We love Kefalonia and this accommodation and we are already counting down the days until we return.

Hotel was what all the other reviews state, spotlessly clean, roomy and a great family run hotel. Ideally situated 10 mins from the beach and Skala town centre. Loved our time here and would not hesitate to return. Well done Crystal Palace keep it up. I can see why so many guests return

This is a great family run hotel that we wouldn't hesitate in going back too. The rooms were kept spotless and have everything you need, The views from the balconies were fantastic and we really enjoyed sitting out on them for our breakfasts. Unfortunately we had the room at the top of the hill so it could be a bit...
