worst hotel we have ever been to all inclusive a joke its dirty and they don't want to know you unless you spend money don't want any other british person to stay there have e mailed every holiday firm to take it off their website have written to corfu tourist board that's how bad it is it gives corfu and its people a bad name they are wonderfull friendly people

Det var da det verste vi havde proevet, snavset og med utette vinduer og doere hvor vinden hylede saa jeg ikke kunne sove, det var godtnok billigt, men derfor behoevede  personalet ikke at opfoere sig ubehageligt eller vaere ligeglade, maden var ensformig og kedelig og til frokosten var der genopvarmet mad fra aftensmaden, (genopvarmede pomfritter, adr-adr-adr). All-inclusive var kun something-inclusive, snacks og is skulle betales og vin kunne vi kun faa  til aftensmaden, max. 2 plastbaegre med meget tyndt vin pr. person. Jeg vil anbefale alle feriegester til Korfu , at velge et andet hotel, for korfu er i sig selv fantastisk.

Dont go there! all inclusive option... Horrible hotel, staff and food. My worst holidays ever. Every day the same food, dirty rooms which dont meet standards! Had to pay 50 euro for air conditioning in the room;/ And you cant complain cause staff is rude and dont listen to you. Also no alcoholic drinks provided. Waste of time and money. Will never go back there again and please dont go there cause you gonna come back dissapointed!

Dont even go there

what a place the staff are very rude, the food was the pits, they ran out off plates cups and saucers and even tea and coffee when we asked for more tea the didnt replace the teabags the tea was awful the entertainment was naff the rooms are very basic but the showers dont work as they should you have to ask for toilet rolls and for your towels to be changed the sun beds were falling a part in the pool bar the staff smoked whilst preparing snacks and didnt wash their hands nothing there for children at all we seen so many unhappy and bored childen

ConfusedROOMS UNDERSTANDABLY BASIC, BUT COULD DO WITH A GOOD CLEANING. (ASK FOR NEW BUILDING).

AngryWE PAID FOR FOUR ROOMS ONLY GOT THREE (TWO WITH NO AIR CON). COMPLAINED AND EVENTUALLY GOT MOVED TO THREE OTHER ROOMS WITH AIR CON (AT 50 EUROS PER ROOM A WEEK). DID NOT PERSIST WITH FORTH ROOM BECAUSE OF THE COST OF AIR CON , THIS ALSO HAPPENED TO ANOTHER FAMILY THE SAME DAY WE ARRIVED. (TWO ROOMS PAID FOR NOT USED BY EITHER FAMILY AND THEY STILL INSISTED NO EXTRA ROOMS AVAILABLE).£££.

OuchBE CAREFULL WITH YOUNG CHILDREN THE SUNBEDS HAVE SHARP BOLTS STICKING OUT .

OuchWENT TO LOOK AROUND THE NEW BUILDING (WHICH DOES LOOK NICE AND CLEAN),FOUND A DOOR WHICH LED ONTO THE ROOF NOT ONLY UNLOCKED BUT LEFT OPEN (NO BARRIERS JUST SHEAR DROP ON TO CONCRET).

PissedFOOD OK, BUT VERY LITTLE CHOICE, MAIN PART OF YOUR MEAL IS PLONKED ONTO YOUR PLATE BY ONE MEMBER OF STAFF (OTHERS OK BUT DONT ASK FOR EXTRA PORTIONS,  IF LOOKS COULD KILL). YOUR SWEET HAS NO CHOICE, ONE DAY YOU GET JELLY THE NEXT YOU GET MELON THE NEXT YOU GET JELLY YOU CAN WORK THE REST OUT FOR YOURSELF.

EmbarrassedWE HAD ONE GOOD NIGHT OF ENTERTAINMENT THE REST WHERE REALLY EMBARRASSINGLY BAD.

ClapWEATHER WAS FANTASTIC, MET SOME REALLY NICE PEOPLE WHICH MADE OUR HOLIDAY BEARABLE.

When you go to Telemachos (or Tilemachos) hotel remember that it is 2 * hotel, so do not expect 5* luxury and you will be fine. I stayed there for 2 weeks with 2 children (6 and 8 year old). The staff and management were very nice and helpful. That hill everyone is writing about is not really that steep. I found it very charming and picturesque; there are a lot of olive trees, fig and pomegranate trees, grapes and huge cactuses. There is not much to do in the hotel, the pool area was reasonably clean. Food was OK, but we only had breakfast in the hotel. There is a bus stop nearby, you can get a No 7 bus to Corfu town. The only problem I had was that cleaning ladies did not have a habit of locking doors and windows, so I would advice not to keep anything valuable in your room.

 Not long got back from a week at tilemachos hotel in dassia.  it was the worst  all inclusive holiday i have been on yet!!!! 

  When we arrived and checked in they only gave us three rooms when we had paid for four.
  If you want air con you have to state this when booking before you go or complain till you get air con but it will cost you 50 euros per room for one week.
  Sun beds by the pool are old, made of metal and have sharp bolts sticking out. so be careful because you will either fall off them, burn or cut yourself.
  Pool area is not very clean but then neither is the rest of the hotel. ( apart from the new building )
  This hotel has nothing for kids to do apart from play in the pool
  Hotels entertainment was really bad, so make your own.
  Staff at this hotel are RUDE and IGNORANT!
  All inclusive bar shuts 9.30pm on the dot!!!
  Meal times at this hotel are nothing to look forward to as they are very basic. They dish your meals for you and as for the pudding i hope you all like jelly.  
 
  Apart from the hotel we had a really good time in dassia the weather was brilliant, the water park is great fun and we met some really nice friends.

Just got back from my WORST holiday ive ever been on in my life with my partner 1st holiday with out the kids it was terrible, RUDE is the only word i can say about the staff , there was a male receptionist who was very very rude to me and friends we met, we complained and were told he was being sacked from his job but he was still there as we were leaving so no action was taken.  they dont know how 2 clean the state of our room when we first got there was disgusting.The hotel rep was not helpful in anyway possible they wont be just me thats complaining many english were unhappy with the hotel.  Food i cant tell u how bad it was i wud not feed it 2 my dog.  Mash potatoes on the one occasion was more like custard,it was the holiday from HELL! i would not reccomend this hotel to anybody. Basically alls i can say is that this hotel needs shutting down.We will be taking the matter further by writing to olympic head office and watch dog.

This hotel is the worst I have ever stayed at :

POOR FOOD.
Tables concrete with plastic cover all striping of leaving sharp edges.
Sun beds most held together with coach bolts with ends cut of with grinder[sharp edges]
Staff [underlings] very good, but not enough of them 
ALL management ignorant and penny pinching.
All Inc. bar inside the hotel is closed at 9.30pm [sharp] you then have to go outside the All Inc. bar outside also close at 9.30pm. [ not much of a bar more a kiosk.] you then use the poolside bar.[take out a mortgage]]
No pack lunch if your out for the day.
Health & Safety very poor.
Need I say more?

Holiday at the Tilemachos Hotel was the best holiday me and my nan had. i'm hoping to take my mum and brother next summer. The hotel is situated on top of a steep hill but good for some excersise. I recommed this hotel to all ages. The beach was stoney but ok. Shops were in walking distance and the bus to corfu town was 1 euro and took about 15-20 minutes on the no.7 bus. The bars and restaurants in dassia were good. Meals at the hotels were not so nice at breakfast but the lunch and dinner meals were excellent. Rooms were very clean and tidy.

Okay me and my friend hadn't been on holiday without parents before so it was all new experiences. The first thin i will mention is the very steep hill to reach the hotel not great when you are going out all the time up and down like a yoyo. The Staff were very friendly when we arrived which was very early morning. We were very disappointed with our room when we got there as it was very much like a box room. Anyway we decided we'd rather spend our money on activates than pay Ä50 for air conditioning in the new building.(Plus thats only really for full board guests). And good job we didn't pay as it was really cold at night.

Later that morning we went for breakfast am all i had was tined peaches cos the food was not great at all. After out Holiday Rep talked about the activities around the island and some History, so knew alot about Corfu and the best places to go. Okay be careful to what activites you do u through the reps, i think on they coned us out of quite a bit of money. So may be best to hire out a motor bike and find it yourself. From this hotel it's only 10mins by coach. But the good side is the waterpark was fab! there was loads to do and we had a great time. best to not stay there too long cos eventually you do get board. (don't buy any pictures from the water slide, they don't come out that good). Now the other activity we did was the Beach trip/ BBQ, that was the worst day out of them all. Not only did it rain it was not worth the money at all. We saw 2 crappy islands and the one we ended up on, we had to leave cos the rocks were falling on people, and the BBQ was horrible not one tourist enjoyed there food.

The entertainment in the hotel was a bit rubbish mostly the same every night. Plus it went on till 1am in the morning which was not great. The pool area was really nice, with the pool bar too, which stayed open till 1pm. We met some really nice people I the hotel so that made our stay a lot nicer. Make friends as soon as you arrive; itís nice to see familiar faces throw the duration of your holiday. The Staff were a little strange, but nice.

Oh didnít like the cleaning much and they changed your towel ever 3 days, so you may want to take extra towels.

Overall this is an ok Hotel if youíre just looking for bed, if your one for luxury then this isnít for you.

this was by far the worst hotel i have ever stayed, the food was disgusting and there was hardly any choice, the staff tried their best ruin our holiday and were extremley rude, if your young beware they will dislike you even more(especially the night staff man). we was ment to have a family room that slept 4 people, there was three of us and we had to put most of the furniture from the room on the balcony so we could get our suitcases in it was that small. one of us was without a pillow and sheet for the first 2 nights even after complaining 4 times. when we arrived we were given our room only to be told the next morning that we would have to move if we didnt get air conditioning.we also payed extra to have a late room which we found had only two beds and there was three of us.

 
i would not reccommend going to this hotel in a million years. it was awful

We were all inclusive. We had a good holiday at this hotel except for the 9.30pm closing of the free bar. just as the entertainment started. tried to stack up table with drinks but were told that we could not do this. food was good. didn't like the way people were being told off so much by the staff. it was like being back at school. we were lucky we paid extra for air conditioning and had one of the new rooms. i pity anyone who had the old rooms. no good for anyone with walking problems. beach terrible stoney. been there once enjoyed but would not go back.

Amanda F           

Well what can i say from a whole catalogue of events which means i can only say NEVER GO HERE! Arrived at 3am at the somewhat grim reception to be greeted by a grunt and an explanation that the family room (3 adults one child) was not available and that the wrong details had found it's way too the hotel. Our room was not booked until 9am that morning, but due to the wrong room details the receptionist decided to give us a room for the night (3 single beds) feeling that this was an apology of some description we accepted and crammed oursleves into the room to get a few hours kip before sorting the situation int he morning. Having woke up i arrived at reception and asking for our room - we where shown 2 totally inadequate rooms which could hardly sleep 3 never mind all the suitcases, finally we gave into a pool side room (close to the pool for the child), which was filthy (pubic hair on the toilet and stained sheets). Needless we bought of cleaning products at the local market and spruced it up and rearranged the furniture so we could fit the suitcases in.

Anyway to cut a long story short all we heard where complaints about the hotel, grumpy staff, very strict rules regarding pool and drinking/eating in your hotel room. Adttitude from the management was 'we don't care it's our hotel' - we will let you decide form the many reviews we hear the new side of the hotel was top notch and the pool was good to be fair.

Oh and i forgot to mention that night they gave us in the 3 single bed room when we arrived was then deducted from our stay and they chucked us out, child in tow, a day early saying we'd had 7 nights already - CHARMING!!!

the entertainment was non-existant ( george the piano man), and it is a rip off for the air conditioning. But at least that handsome gorgeous night porter was the one to fit it for us.Ladies take note, he is always teasing the women by flexing his muscles whilst cleaning the pool, fag dangling on his lower lip and plastic bag in hand, whilst killing bugs in such a manly way. Andreas you look like your dog has just been ran over, every day we were there, you know it takes alot more muscles to frown than to smile.this was you   George looked very fetching posing in the garden in his cow boy hat. The staff there have to really get over their fear of children and embrace them for they were the only source of life there. And if people want to dress up at night, please feel free to because we were made to feel like the royal family coming to see the peasants in ball gowns. And if certain members of staff recieve letters, it is only manners to write back YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE !!!! if you want the holy ones of fashion to grace your humble abode again !!

Ciao Giavanni , I will be in touch. Momma says hi !! love Bambino xx

Netty H           

the holiday was brilliant, and the night porter who cleans the pool is absolutely gorgeous.there is a  rumour going round he does back flips into the pool in the middle of the night, we were very disappointed as we didn't see this. Ladies, if u do have the pleasure of viewing this greek god in action, please take a picture for women to lust after all over the world !

  hi,sarah and i got back from dassia about 5 weeks ago,i would recomend anyone to stay at the telemachos we have been there twice now and both times realy enjoyed it.the staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms we have stayed in have been spottlesly clean.it is a lovely atmosphere at the hotel and we have made lots of friends the hill is a bit of a pain but its good exersise i suppose.i would recomend you go to the blue bay bar its on the beech at the far end about a 15 min walk but worth it.you will find it very friendly with some good entertainment and music.the food here is exceptional and the staff are brilliant especialy akis,lette,mario and starthis. we will defo be visiting again.

Carl W           

Apart from missery guts (Andreas hopefully been sacked by now) it was a great holiday!!! for what you pay you cant have any complaints really.  Malina you r stunning and if you boyfriend dont ring you again i will give you all my love  hi to everyone i met and mario can i have your black shirt?  the hill can b a bit of a pain but once you r at the bottom you will find the sea a 5 min walk and it is lovely.

Dassia is ok but everything seems to shut bout 11pm pop down to eden bar on the beach and have a nice drink with the greek population, all in all it was a good holiday.

We stayed at Telemachos hotel 6th August this year, myself(30), hubby (29) and three children 3,6,7. This holiday was fantastic. The hotel was spotlessly clean, staff friendly, pool lovely and food plentiful, although I admit not much variety. We stayed B&B basis and payed to eat in hotel 3 evenings (8euros were adult) and you just join in with those with all inclusive and can eat and drink as much as you wish. We found this ecxellent value. There is a menu in the morning so youcan work out and plan your day and decide where you will eat. Only think I was slightly dissappointed with was the hotel advertised air conditionaing and when we got there only some rooms had it so that was a shem. We hired a fan however. The rooms were cleaned every day to a good standard. I am glad we were not all inclusive and would not recommend you upgeade, its not worth it, the meals are so cheap you might as well save your money.I would definatly stay at this hotel again.

We are booked into the Tilemachos Hotel 6th September 2004 on a bed and breakfast basis. It appears to have conflicting reports as to the friendliness of the staff etc. Would it be worth upgrading to all inclusive when we get there. We have heard that the bar closes 9.30pm with all inclusive, have they changed this, or is it still the same. How far are we from the beach and local tavernas.
