The location was excellent - virtually just below the snowline in Petralia and Piano Battaglia - which one MUST visit in winter! We could not believe we could drive trhough so much snow in Sicily! The rooms are very good - heat pump airconditioners in each room, ensuite bathrooms, good quality furnishing and very clean. Breakfast was good with excellent... More

Very nice hotel which in the past, part of it was a castle. This is situated in the heart of the village and surrounded by old houses. Very good breakfast and food which is made inhouse. Parking can be a problem but on the majority of the cases one can easily find a parking space in a nearby square. Rooms... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night in September and absolutely loved it. It is run by a wonderful family who were all extremely helpful. The rooms were very clean, spacious enough, and thoughtfully decorated. The price was very reasonable. Breakfast was quite tasty, and pretty extensive given that there didn't seem to be many other guests. We... More

Il Castello was our first overnight stop during our cycling holiday in Sicily during late May 2013. Cycling into Petralia Sottana the B&B is easy to locate as there are several brown tourist information signs displaying the names of the local B&Bs at most road turns. Upon arrival we were quickly attended to by calling the phone number on the... More

We stayed at Il Castello in 2012 when first discovering the Madonie and wanting to do some more walking in 2013 we returned and were not disappointed. The welcome was as warm as before and the overall calm and peace of the hotel is really restorative. Whilst finding the hotel is no problem (a few sharp corners which have to... More

A lovely, family run small hotel in an atmospheric village in the mountains of Sicily. The room was pretty, the food and wine outstandingly good, and the service was quite exceptional. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return.

This was an enjoyable 3 night stay as a base for cycling locally and a sprint to Syracuse. Well run with decent restaurant attached. My only complaint is that the matresses were poor - vintage backpackers I would say, and to add insult to injury they had plastic covers, which soon found their way into the wardrobe. The interior renovation... More

The well in the reception area and the name itself hint at the origins of Il Castello as the town's fortified centre. Battlements and dungeons are long gone and have been replaced by an excellent and really good value small hotel. Rooms are large and comfortable, all with WiFi. We arrived in the middle of the afternoon to find the... More

Hotel and town are wonderful,but do be aware that finding the hotel is not easy, although it is signposted, and parking in these towns can be challanging (there was a festa that evening and diversions were in place which didnt help!).When you do you find Il Castello you will be pleased you did ,the decor of the hotel has been...

I really enjoyed my stay here. Yes it's true that reception isn't open the entire day, so either call in advance to let them know your estimated arrival time, or call when you've reached it (the cell phone numbers are on the door) within 5 minutes someone will be there to let you in and show you your room.
