The Garden hotel is a perfect base from which to tour eastern Sicily. A suburban hotel, the pool is quite and relaxing. I often had it to myself! There is a restaurant on the Terasse which seems popular with the locals. Very good breakfast and they almost encourage you to take a packed lunch. You do need a car here but if you like to drive it is only 20 mins from Taormina. Easy to drive to Mount Etna too or into Catania city centre.

Old but comfortable. The pool in the garden hotel is tops. The service however is unique due to authentic Italian owners. Close to Catania and mount Etna I'd recommend staying here. Oh - food and coffee are spectacular.

The room was very old, the bathroom very small and the shower 60x60. The diner was good but a very limited quantity. It is an old fashioned hotel that needs renovation. The swimming pool was also closed.

Spent 4 nights with my husband. Room on 1st floor was excellent. Facilities tops. Breakfast is very varied and abundant. Dinner at restaurant was unique. I had a lentil soup once and i could feel it was made with passion. Will definitely return.

In November I had to spend about 10 days in Catania to take care of some business. My sister and I decided to try the Garden Hotel. We were very pleased with our choice. The room are very spacious and comfortable and are kept impeccably clean. My dog was welcome and did not have to pay an extra fee. The breakfast was abundant and the restaurant staff was very kind and professional. The hotel is surrounded by a beautiful pa it also offers a very large pool, lounge chairs and a barbecue area.
