“Lovely hotel but the food was disappointing.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Our plane was late, we got lost on our way to the hotel and we didn't arrive until gone midnight even so our welcome could not have been better. We had an upgrade and a fantastic room/suite for our stay. The hotel was in a lovely building in a beautiful setting. Wi-fi reception in the room was good. Food unfortunately was a bit of a let down, breakfast was limited on the first day but much better on the second. The evening meal was not up to standard for the price we had to pay and I write this after sampling the food in other hotels and restaurants during our stay in Sicily. A shame as otherwise I could not fault the hotel.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2011

My husband and I spent 3 days at the Castello Camemi at the start of our trip to Sicily. Castello Camemi is a converted, baronial Castello around 45 minutes by car from Catania airport. Having until recently been near derelict, the building and interiors have now been totally restored with superb architectural and historical sensitivity. The hotel has a beautiful and tranquil setting with lovely views over its own estate and the local countryside. Etna broods in the distance. Our bedroom was of a good size and tastefully furnished and very comfortable. We stayed at the hotel on a half board basis which was extremely good value as we were treated to a lovely four course meal each evening with an extensive and largely local wine-list. The owners and staff were amazingly helpful – Country House hospitality, but with Sicilian finesse.
