Having decided fairly last minute to have a week away, I found the Trapezaki Bay Hotel on the Tripadvisor site and was even more fortunate to get a room owing to a cancellation!. The reviews cast a very favourable light and if you are looking to stay in an hotel that is far removed from "package" type accomodation this is definitely the one and you would not be disappointed. Being September and after the UK schools had gone back, the island was quieter and the hotel was populated by a more mature & sedate crowd, a good thing if you want peace and relaxation. I agree with a previous reviewer that it was slightly clicky with some of the guests who had been several times before, but that made it nteresting for us first timers to see what it was all about! The island is lovely, the people are very warm and friendly and this is echoed by all the staff at the Trapezaki, who just want you to enjoy their hotel, hospitality and ultimately come back. The facilities were all of a good standard, we had a room with double aspect balacanies which I would recommend. Dinner in the evening was of a high standard and mostly served out on the terrace over looking the bay, but I would advise to book in for the evening dinner, the terrace is very popular and seasoned visitors like to have "their" tables! The local tavernas serve good quality fare as well so give them a try. There were guests who were booking for 2010 and were wandering around to decide which rooms they would stay in next year! The location is good because it is away from the main tourist resorts, but even these are not over the top, but you do need a car to get about.. Even if you are not confident with driving abroad you can book yourselves on excursions, so tempting though it is to stay by the pool and look across the fabulous bay to Zante in the distance, do go and see the rest of what the lovely island of Kefalonia has to offer..
