The apartments have been refurbished....

"The apartments have been refurbished. I couldn't believe how nice mine was, a middle floor one with a fantastic sea view (as they all have, though the ground floor ones have a bit of greenery to peer through). Frankly even without the refurb the apartment would have been fantastic just because of the view right across the Lixouri bay. Superb sunsets too. The maid was fantastic, daily visits at a time when you were out (no 8AM knocking).

The walk up to them is no more than a meandering slope. If you have walking difficulties then sure, it's a challenge; but so will be most of Kefalonia, it's a hilly place.

A wonderful holiday in fantastic accommodation. The Lassi beaches are excellent too, something for everyone. The sandy long beach (Makris Yialos) was great. Car hire is plentiful and getting up to the North, Fiskardo, Myrtos beach and Assos, is recommended - the roads are very good, if not built by Romans.

"Overall the holiday was very good, the accomodation was very old fashioned and we were misinformed with the standard of the studio. The room was very small and clostrophobic. One positive aspect was the amazing view of the bay. Myself and my husband have stayed in many studios in the greek islands but this was by far the poorest and the layout of the complex was tired and shabby."

"I must admit, having read the previous reviews, we were a bit nervous going to the Irini. In fact I spent much of the week before we arrived on the phone to Olympic trying to get ANY other accommodation!

But it was fine! As a couple, we had 2 rooms, including a (very small) bathroom. All other facilities were fine and clean. There was daily maid service and the room (thankfully) didn't smell like a public loo! Cooking facilities standard for SC, a fan in the kitchen/living area and access (for additional charge) to air conditioning.

The view was spectacular, looking out over the sea and the location was super. 5 min walk to centre of Lassi and 20 min walk to Argostoli, the capital, which has a great selection of places to eat and drink. It probably wouldn't be the easiest accommodation with those who struggle with walking or young families. Although to be fair most places in Kefalonia are set on a height. Although there is no pool, you have free access to pools at other Olympic accommodation in the area. It was quiet and a really lovely holiday.

We would happily go back to the Irini again. And Kefalonia's gorgeous ... you don't spend that much time indoors!!

Lassi is a fantastic resort, however...

"Lassi is a fantastic resort, however the Irini apartments are not great. We've stayed s/c in Greece several times before and know how basic the accommodation can be, but this place was easily the worst we've stayed in.

The room was in desperate need of a paint job, it smelt damp and musty and the bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen - you're pretty much in the shower cubicle when using the toilet. We booked last minute and only stayed for a week, I couldn't have lasted longer than that. The pool isn't worth bothering with and they charge 5E per person per day, rather excessive. Its in a pretty good location though, there is a short cut into the main street which takes 5-10 mins, then another 5-10 minutes to the beach.

We did this walk with a 4 year old which was a bit much in the heat, so I'd advise hiring a car - best way to get to all the fantastic beaches. Loads of good restaurants, lovely people. Basically, a lovely resort but pay a bit extra and stay somewhere nicer.

"This was no holiday! Apartments are well situated above Lassi with lovely views over to the Lixouri peninsula. This is the one good thing about this accommodation.

The apartment we booked was not available to see on the internet but we thought we'd take a chance, having been to Kefalonia 3 times before, we knew the standard of accommodation is usually very good. We were given a4, it stunk like a public toilet.

The decorative state was awful! It had not been painted since the seventies, the bathroom was disgusting. We did not even bother unpacking our clothes as they too would have stunk like a lavatory. We ended up paying ourselves for alternative accommodation when Olympic offered to move us only for a daily charge!

I would advise everyone never to stay here and not to book with Olympic holidays. The standard of service was disgusting.

"Start with the positive. The appartments had fantastic views.

Bathrooms far too small. Cracked tiles in showers. Behind the toilet was dirty. Cobwebs in corners of the room and unsafe furniture. Would benefit from a good renovation inside.

Oppressive atmosphere when you walked in the door. Mould growing on spare pillow in the cupboard.
