"Very convenient location, breathtaking view"
This place is a timeless beauty. Located 30 seconds away from the main street, it has an amazing view of the bay. Our room was spacious and bright, but we spent some time on the balcony and by the pool.
"Home away from home"
As soon as we walked in the door we were made to feel at home. We were able to park our car straight away and didnt have to use it for the rest of our stay as the hotel is a great location right near the city centre. The staff that checked us in was very helpful and informative on not only the facilities in the hotel but what to do in Taormina. When we checked into our room it took my breath away, the was was truely spectactular with a balcony to sit in. The room had the most elegant furnishings that make you feel as if you are sleeping in an antique castle. The hotel had also just been refurbished giving it a very fresh feel, the room was spacious and very clean and the bathroom also had a bath. It had a pool, tennis court and fitness centre which we used often. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic, more then we expected, a buffet breakfast with a very large selection from cornetti, to different types of bread, cheeses and cold meats, fresh fruits and a lot more to choose from. The experience that we had in this hotel was excelent, it made our stay in Taormina unforgettable, thankyou. We will be back!

"What a view"
We spent a lovely weekend in this place! English style hotel with one of the best view in Taormina. It's just stunning and staff has been so welcoming and always available for us. Miss Claudia is the manager there and she is impeccable! Highly recommend !
"The hotel is definitely not four stars even two would be generous!"
This hotel is overpriced and doesn't deliver what it says in it's the advertising. There was no hot water on the first day. The hot water tap had to be left on for 30 minutes before you could shower that was only available in the mornings. We were looking forward to using the swimming pool but told we could not use it. The staff were helpful but there was very little they could do make our stay more comfortable.
