The hotel and where it is we couldn’t fault but Corfu itself seems to be struggling financially and there are a lot of derelict buildings on the route to the hotel. Shame really as I’m sure it used to be thriving. We would definitely go back though

Places we visited, Corfu Town, Paleokastritsa, Pelekas and Achilleion Palace all worth a visit. The Greek people are lovely, very welcoming and friendly. However the infrastructure; Street lighting, pavements, rubbish and public transport are lacking
