We arrived on 23rd June after a terrible ten hours of a journey including flight and baggage delays to be given a warm welcome and a cool drink. We left on 7th July feeling relaxed and happy. Our suite was spacious and just as ordered- we asked for ground floor and a bathroom as I am disabled and we got both. The black and white colour scheme was tasteful, the bed comfortable and the aircon efficient. We had no trouble finding the hotel with the satnav, although there were also plenty of signs. The hotel proved an excellent base for our explorations of the eastern side of Sicily, up as far as Taormina and Castelmola and down as far as Cape Passero. We also went inland as far as Enna and saw the fabulous Roman Villa at Casale.. Our only disappointment was driving to Bronte and finding the manor house shut. Our favourite had to be Siracusa itself, we could drive and park right in the centre of Ortygia withe my blue badge and we went there frequently. The hotel pool was a cool place to retreat to after a day out and the restaurant was cooperative in providing vegetarian meals. Thanks are due to all the wonderful staff.
