My Italian husband and I spent 5 glorious days in Taormina in mid October of 2014. The Ashbee was indeed a" home of peace", worth every penny. Having spent 3 weeks touring Southern Italy and Sicily, we appreciated ending our holiday at a five star hotel with top notch service and hospitality. Our room was well appointed and to the... More

We spent a week here in September & would highly recommend it. Beautiful hotel in a quiet location but minutes from the shops & restaurants. We stayed in one of the rooms by the fabulous gardens, it was gorgeous & spotlessly clean. Breakfast was lovely & what an amazing view. The staff are all excellent, one day we had trouble... More

As above. It was well worth our second vosot to the hotel. We stayed at this hotel and although little has changed there is little need for it to change. We were fortunate to get the same room as last year. The garden room has a small, but more that adequate terrace. A orchard of lime, oranges and lemon, very... More

We spent one night here at the end of our week in Sicily. In fact we left our previous five star hotel, in which we had been disappointed, a night early in search somewhere special for our last night. We were not disappointed in the Ashbee. It is five star top to toe. We ate at the St George in... More

This is the best hotel in Sicily, during my travel I have been in Syracuse and in Palermo. Taormina is a very nice and ancient town, The Ashbee is in the center with a large park. Restaurant must be tasted.

We chose the Ashbee for its location and rooftop views, and these didn't disappoint. The buffet breakfast served on the roof terrace was a daily highlight with a wide variety of dishes to choose from and excellent service. It was also pleasant to return to in the evenings after a busy day of sightseeing or to spend a couple of... More

We stayed there for a few days to relax after a cycling trip in Sicily and it was perfect. The place is gorgeous, very elegant, room was beautiful, pool area has killer views, staff was friendly and the property has a very private feel. You wouldn't know you are in the middle of a busy and touristy town. Breakfast on... More

We chose this hotel as part of a touring holiday on Sicily especially to celebrate a milestone birthday. Its location is certainly stunning & the public rooms & garden charming. However, for a 5 star hotel we found several disappointments & irritations. The 2 rooms booked for our party of 4 were not the same size, although the same price,... More

We weren't staying in The Ashbee but went there for pre dinner drinks, after spotting its rooftop bar looking out to sea. Incredible views, very efficient and amenable staff, and the best nibbles came alongside the drinks that we got in all of Taormina! A platter of local cheese, gazpacho, crisps, breads, tomatoes.... Totally spoilt us. The only thing that... More
