This hotel was our first stop in Sicily. The room was lovely with a balcony. The bed was really comfortable. The staff were very friendly and I thought the food was really good. They catered well for vegetarians. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the centre of Noto and easy travelling distance of many interesting places such as...

This was the first of four hotels we stayed in during our recent SAGA tour of Sicily. Located on the outskirts of Noto, it offers the usual amenities of a provisional 4* Italian hotel. Our room was clean, reasonably well appointed and adequately sized. Unfortunately the only view we had from our window was of the local fire station, still...

This was the first hotel of four featured in a 12 day tour of Sicily. A comfortable hotel within a 10/15 minute walk of the centre of Noto. The bedrooms with en suite facilities were of a reasonable size and overlooked the sea or railway. Ours had a pleasant view beyond the railway and did not suffer from train noise....

Stayed here for the first three nights on a Saga tour of Sicily. The hotel is well appointed for visiting Noto. Rooms were fine. Breakfast was OK. Front of house was fine with friendly helpful staff. Our chambermaid was very honest having found a 10 Euro note I dropped on the floor that was left in the room for me...

Stayed here a few times now and it a good location on the edge of Noto. The bar and reception staff are friendly and helpful even though they are mostly new. The breakfast selection is tasty and fresh - would thoroughly recommend and sure that I will be back next year!

We stayed here for one night. The reception area is gorgeous - bright, modern, very spacious and welcoming. The staff were all lovely except for the pool guys. We loved the big spacious room but the view was dreadful- a fire station and muck hills. More sun loungers are needed at the pool, and the pool guys need to get...

New, modern and clean, large rooms, nice pool, decent buffet breakfast. It's 4 star by Italian standard, in a few years' time it would be run down. Parking if free in front but we didn't have much trouble parking in Noto. It's further down the street but it's only 10 minute walk from the old town. It does not have...

A modern hotel within walking distance of the centre of Noto, and well located for touring the area. Dinner and breakfast were provided. Has a pool and good car-park. Rooms are clean with views (not of the town centre). The town centre is a walk of about 10 minutes ‘up-hill’ There is also a super-market close by.

As a single traveller I got a suite of rooms, with a Jacuzzi and 2 balconies! The hotel was clean and breakfasts very nice. I was travelling with a Saga group and the evening dinners left a lot to be desired, set meals, very much Anglicized, and not what the cuisine I expected in Italy. The hotel was within easy...
