Excellent hotel with great views. Close to town, only a 10 minute walk. Facilities within the main hotel can be reached by lift but you need to have your climbing legs on to access the pool as it’s down numerous flights of steps through the hotel gardens (personally not a problem as it helped burn of some of the Italian calories). Buffet breakfast was excellent and the staff were all helpful and polite. Definitely a place I would come back to.

My wife and I have just returned from two weeks on a two-centre holiday in Sicily. We spent nine nights here on a bed and breakfast basis after five nights at the Royal Maniace Hotel in Syracuse. The hotel is in a good location just 50 metres from the bus station, about a ten minute walk from the main street Corso Umberto and a five minute walk to the funicular/cable car to the beach. Check in was very efficient and during our stay we found all the staff extremely helpful. We had a nice spacious room on the top floor with a wonderful view. The bed was large, there was plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, the TV had a few English channels to keep us abreast of UK and world events, the room had a kettle and tea and coffee, and also a minibar in which we could keep our bottles of water, and a safe. The bathroom has a bath with a shower, plenty of toiletries (soap, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion) topped up daily, a good hairdryer, and although the towels are thin they were changed every day. One of the bedside lights had a faulty bulb and on the first night the shower was cold, but when we reported these to reception the problems were fixed immediately. The chambermaid on the top floor made a very good job of cleaning the room every day. Wifi is good throughout the hotel. Breakfast is excellent. There are fruit juices, sparkling and still water, yoghurts, plenty of fresh fruit, five cereals, cold meats and cheeses, breads, pastries, cakes, etc, and hot food if you want it. We ate on a terrace overlooking the bay every morning. The swimming pool is large with plenty of sun-loungers and umbrellas. The pool bar serves excellent snacks at lunchtime. If you ask at the pool a courtesy service is available to take you up to reception at the end of the day (very useful if you have a heart problem or mobility issue to avoid the 180+ steps). An excellent hotel, the only niggle being the (high) tourist tax which we were told about as we checked in, and we would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is really good, but not for people with mobility problems. All the staff are fantastic, breakfast was excellent. With it being an old building built into the cliffs there are nearly 200 steps down to the pool and 200 back up. The lift only goes so far. But saying that I would definetly recommend this hotel and being across from the bus station and a 10 minute walking into the centre of Taormina.

stayed for a week wishing it was longer, hotel very nice but not for the infirm to many steps, ideal location ten minutes walk to centre, plenty to see as the local buses go everywhere castelmola is a must, wonderful staff very helpful the pool is a long way down buy if you like being by the pool it is worth it, safe place to stay no problems.

My mother and I have had a wonderful stay. They upgraded us to a room with a view. The swimming pool is fantastic and the staff is very polite and full of good advice. Location is perfect, close to the city centre and near the cable car to the beach. The only thing that may be improved is breakfast as there is not a great variety of food. I highly recommend this hotel.
