We had a wonderful holiday at the Ashbee hotel. Very good staff and an excellent restaurant (I wonder if it has a Michelin rating). During the stay a stray kitten came on the terrain and we managed to take her home, naming her ASHBEE!

i've stayed at grand atlantis bay which is also beautiful. However, this one ticked more boxes as its closer to the theatre and an array of fab restaurants. This hotel is very quiet as there are approx 20+ rooms only..we never ate there other then in the morning as multi-choices are on our door steps.... The staff are on the... More

The whole feel of The Ashbee is one of relaxed glamour around the grounds, restaurants and bars! lovely 'Old English Mansion' style! Attentive staff to accommodate, gorgeous views from the back and infinity pool ( although so tiny- feels crowded with more than 2 people!), comfortable sun loungers and a wonderful view over the bay of Taormina. Our room was... More

This wonderful hotel provided a quiet and relaxed haven from the hustle and bustle of Taormina. The infinity pool with a view that was breath taking and the roof terrace at night whilst sipping cocktails was a slice of heaven. The staff were attentive, informed and helped/booked with trips, tickets, access to a quiet beach and with restaurant recommendations and... More

We started our honeymoon at the Ashbee and enjoyed the location, ambience and the overly attentive staff. We had a beautiful room and although it overlooked the front of the hotel, the fact that the hotel grounds is set back from the road made the room quiet and gave the feeling of an estate in the hills. The breakfast was... More

Our vacation in Sicily started with a stay at the Ashbee Hotel. The staff was wonderful, our room was lovely. Beautiful pool overlooking the most incredible view. The grounds are gorgeous. The rooftop bar also has amazing views and service was top notch. I highly recommend the Ashbee.

We stayed at the Ashbee just one week ago and what a wonderful place. Taormina is very busy in July and what a great place to retreat to after a busy day on the streets of Taormina. We stayed in a Junior suite #26 and it was beautiful. The grounds are wonderful. You feel like you are staying at a... More
