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

I stayed in this delightful hotel in August 2014. Everything about this hotel is beautifully presented, from all of the interior in the hotel to the grounds with the pool which has the most breathtaking view of the sea. The food was outstanding, the chef is so talented, and all of the bar and hotel staff couldn't be friendlier or... More

We spent a week here early September & loved its relaxed ambiance & style. It really is a very beautiful hotel both in terms of its decor & its glorious location. Tucked away in the very heart of Taormina, it is perfectly situated for exploring the bustle of life in this ancient town/catching the cable car to enjoy the beach... More

We stayed in this wonderful boutique hotel in early September of 2014. The hotel was built as a private villa in the early 1900's, but has only been operating as a hotel in the last 4 years and has been updated in every way. The hotel is very quiet and discreet -- it is not obvious from the street as... More

We spent 3 days of our honeymoon here. The interiors of the rooms - as well as the rest of the villa, are sumptuous and elegant. The staff - all of them, are professional and friendly. We especially loved the barman (can't believe I forgot his name!). The view is as stunning as their photos. Breakfast with lots of choice... More

A true 5 star experience! This hotel is tranquil and serene yet step outside the secured gates and you are in the thick of the restaurant, shopping and gathering scene. We stayed in a deluxe sea view room which included a huge stunning balcony overlooking the infinity pool and ocean. The breakfast was elaborate and on the rooftop terrace the... More
