We have just come back from a holiday in Sicily, we stayed in the Ashbee Hotel which turned out to be one of the best hotels we have stayed in. The food was excellent, staff were faultless especially Giovanni and Mary,the whole atmosphere was tranquil and nothing was too much trouble. Looking forward to another trip.

We stayed at The Ashbee on our honeymoon a few weeks ago, and had a really lovely week away. The room was spacious with a big terrace, very comfortable bed, one of the better European hotel rooms I've stayed in. The staff were excellent, particularly Giovanni who was very attentive and helpful. My only issue with the place was the... More

Fantastic stay! Beautiful grounds and accommodations and very nice amenities. Made use of pool and roof top restaurant. Great views and the staff was very helpful. Everyone at the front desk and the roof bar went the extra step to really make my birthday a special experience. Only complaint was that the rooms are small but to be expected in... More

After a week of fine dining in the good Taormina restaurants, the Ashbee restaurant still was a revelation. It offers non comparable quality, service and prices. Very nice and excellent food (thanks to the chef Fabio). Perfect and very friendly service by maître Filippo. Deserves at least one star in Michelin.

We have just stayed at the Ashbee (30 May to 5 June) and had an excellent time. Clean, nicely appointed rooms, and great views along the coast. The Ashbee is very close to the main town of Taormina, making it very easy to get to to cafes,bars and shops. The staff at the Ashbee were all excellent and we would... More

We spent 4 days at this lovely site. The view from the roof where we ate breakfast each day to sitting by the pool provided us a tranquil and beautiful scene. The staff were welcoming. We ate dinner the first night at their restaurant which was excellent. We could have drinks at the outdoor bar. Anything we asked for they... More
