This hotel was the second of six hotels that we stayed in during our 2 week tour of the island.
The other hotels we stayed in were Mercure Centro in Palermo, Best Western Kaos in Agrigento, Mediterrano, Siracusa, Belvadere Taormina and Relais Santa Anastasia near Cefalu. Please check out my reviews to these hotels. We drove around the island for the two weeks so if you would like any tips on driving in Sicily please make contact with me.
Wi-Fi – Limited connectivity to the reception area (free).
This hotel has to be one of the strangest hotels I have ever stayed in!
When we arrived the was a bit of unmade road and some gates, we initially thought this was the trade entrance so we drove on to find no other entrance so we went back to the gates and found a call button which put us through to reception who let us in.
The car park was huge as was the whole complex and there were just 3 cars in it and no people at all, it was a bit like a ghost village, it reminded me of the film hostel or the computer game Call of Duty when they are searching the buildings in a deserted town!!!
We eventually found reception where a nice girl checked us in and showed us to our room, the corridors were just like an office block, really wide and high ceilings and this also goes for the rooms. The rooms were clean although we had not been provided with bath towels so we had to ask for them.
The shower base flooded as the drainage was not sufficient.
In the evening we went up into Valderice and were recommended to ‘Franks Restaurant’. Well it was different! Actually the food was good and very reasonable much UNLIKE the breakfast at the hotel the next morning.
At breakfast the hot food (Bacon and Eggs) were stone cold as the dippy lady had forgotten to plug in the heater element, when I mentioned this to her there was no offer to get some fresh and the rest just did not seem very nice. Whilst staying here or in this area make sure you take the drive up to Erice and visit the castle it is fantastic with wonderful views.
