“Very nice three star hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is in an excellent location near the Duomo and a 5 minute walk to the beach. There is no parking in the old town but the hotel offers a shuttle service to their car park down the hill (we walked up but be warned it's a bit challenging with bags). The interior of the hotel is charming, with antique furniture, huge urns and art on the walls. The rooms have air conditioning. The wifi is free and reliable. On the downside, we could hear doors banging in the hotel until 4.30am, which made for a disturbed night's sleep (you could try asking for a room away from the stairwell). The beds are a little on the small side and my feet hung off the end (I'm 185cm). The breakfast selection was poor, e.g. the choice of cereal was cornflakes or cocoa pops, and it was only open from 7.30 till 10.00am. The staff were very helpful and recommended a good restaurant for dinner.

We nearly walked past the hotel on our way from the railway station owing to its unassuming exterior, but once inside we were happy with everything that the hotel had to offer. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful and our room was superb in all respects: large, bright (we had two windows) clean, comfortable and well-decorated, with a smart bathroom incorporating a powerful shower.
Our second day happened to be my wife's birthday and she was delighted to be presented with a light and delicious birthday cake for breakfast - the receptionist had noted the date from her passport on check-in.
Location is also brilliant, right on the main Corso Ruggiero, named after the Norman King who built the amazing Cathedral, or Duomo, which is 2 to 3 minutes walk away, while the beautiful beach was a further 10 minutes walk. Being on the main road meant that although the road was only a few feet wide, you got the constant noise from motor-scooters, day and night, but the bed was so comfortable that we hardly noticed it.
We stayed in six hotels during our tour, some were grander and with more facilities, but none were friendlier or more comfortable than La Plumeria (which means frangipane flower for those who are interested!)

Small & sweet near the Duomo. We left our car just a short ways off & the hotel paid for the taxi ride to & from the car. Our room was clean with a nice shower. The staff was very friendly & helped with dinner reservations. Breakfast was good. Cefalu was charming, we stayed in the old area & walked the beach road. We'll come back here.

You can't miss if you stay at La Plumeria. It is a three minute walk from the Cathedral and is located on the main street. Its a short walk to the beach, to the path to the Temple of Diana located high above the city and to the beach (8 Euros on weekdays, 10 on weekends with their discount gets you two chaise lounges and an umbrella). The room was spacious and the service friendly. They were very helpful with restaurant suggestions/reservations. The streets are narrow and noisy with lots of scooters and there was a lady hanging laundry on her balcony next to mine. Breakfast was included and quite good if not sumptuous. Overall a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: We checked into a room on the second floor with an air conditioner that did not work. They switched...

Overall a great stay at La Plumeria. Friendly staff - eager to help out with every task. Location is perfect and you are close to everything. The hotel is very nicely furnished and there is a relaxing atmosphere to it. I recommend this hotel to everyone that does not need absolute silence when they sleep.

This is a comfortable modern hotel in the centre of Cefalu. Rooms are large, clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Step out the door and you are in the main street, three minutes from the Duomo, the beach and some good restaurants. Best advice if you are driving is to contact the hotel about parking before you go - you cannot drive down the main street on which it is situated - they have parking half a km away and offer an efficient taxi service (free) to fetch you to and from the parking.

We had only one night here.....but we enjoyed our time and enjoyed our stay at la plumeria.
Staff were excellent....breakfast was good...quiet location at night.
Its a small property....with rooms.....but it was clean and very well presented.
It was quite expensive for what it was so we may not stay there again although we have no issues, with our stay.....just the price.
