This nice little B&B is difficult to reach. It is about 75 steps down from the road, which is not practical if you have baggage or small children. There is a golf cart driver that can take you to and from the hotel to your car, but the driver was unreliable and didn't arrive when promised.

The B&B is situated in the center of the fisher town, which is very nice. Our room offered a nice view to the sea. For us the breakfast was really disappointing, taking into consideration the high price of 90€ per night. we would have been fine with a typical italien breakfast, but there were no fruits offered and no variety...

I spent 2 nights in Scilla and it was great. The B&B is in a beautiful location, with amazing views of the village and the sea. My balcony had an awesome view of the sea and the small chapel in front (I saw a local wedding in first row!) The room was really good and I could get 2 nights... More

I know that this B&B has had some mixed reviews but for us the night's stay here was just incredible. Let me say that this is not a good choice if you have children, physical handicaps, or not in shape. It's situated above the sea about 200ft and if you don't know the town of Scilla it requires a lot... More

We wanted to stay in the city of Scilla. We made an advance reservation with the owners and physically reviewed the rooms. We booked two rooms. We liked the overall charm of the facility and the owners seemed reasonable. Upon check in several days later the situation turned into a "Nightmare Looking for a Bedroom" experience. During check-in; a "mistake"... More

My family and I spent only one day in La Locandiera at Scilla, but the short stay was very nice.

The management was unaware that we were coming (booking through venere.com), ended up in a room where the air conditioning wasn't working (not nice in Southern Italy in July), and internet worked sporadically. At check-out they first refused credit cards; after we insisted, the guy at the desk (the janitor?) made a couple of calls, and 15 minutes later the... More

More of a boutique hotel than a B&B. Rooms range in size from huge to tiny: most have a balcony with personal clothes lines, including pegs, and a view. Fully appointed bathroom with fluffy robes and very clean. Generous continental breakfast (good coffee!). Location is very atmospheric but is halfway down a steep hill, towards the port and waterfront. There... More

Our room was romantic, tasteful, spic and span overlooking the blue bay of Scilla... With a view of the ancient Norman castle. Scilla should be mobbed, and isn't! The manager was very friendly, came to pick us up in his own car after we had parked a little higher up. Scilla has a romantic fishing village and a beautiful beach... More
