We found this hotel by accident, the one we were heading for from our satnav was closed. Set back from the road in large garden with big swimming pool the hotel looked fine. We didn't use the pool as too cold, not sure that it was even open. The welcome was good and the hotel was busy so we stayed in the family room for 1 night. It was more of a business/conference than holiday hotel. The room was very large and clean but old ad old fashioned, though there was sky tv for no extra cost. The bathroom was tired and not spotless but not dirty either is that makes sense.Though they did provide disposable tooth brush and razor!
Dinner was interesting because they had a large group in and so we were sat in a room next to main dining room, just 4 diners, where service was slow and have to say that the head waiter was very helpful the other waiters looked miserable.
The starters were ok but sadly couldn't eat my main course which were swordfish cakes because they were over salted. Wine was very passable and expresso good.
We slept quite well and our bedroom opened out to a shared balcony with amazing views of Etna erupting and clear scene of the lave pouring down the snow covered slopes.
Breakfast in honesty was boring, orange juice tasteless,stewed coffee, continental choice but not particularly good quality.
This really is a business hotel, or a good basic base from which to travel to sightsee.
