A hotel is a service business and a good one is a reflection of the attention to detail, quality of food + ambience and particularly the duty of care shown towards guests by the staff. In all these areas Villa Ducale excels. Because we were staying for a relatively short time, I wanted to plan some excursions prior to our arrival and get some local recommendations. The small team of staff did not disappoint and were highly responsive and extraordinarily helpful both before and during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. Bravo to them all. The views from the hotel are spectacular, which is sufficiently set away from the hustle and noise of central Taormina. However, access is relatively easy by ether booking a space on the hotels complementary shuttles or by taking the steps down to town along a very tranquil path (a 15 min walk). The standard of cuisine was exemplary with lots of quality touches whilst our room (albeit slightly small) had a small terrace and were finished to a high standard. If I could give any small advice to the hotel, perhaps you need to upgrade the speed of your Wi-Fi and install some iPod docks to the rooms, but this is a small issue as you are setting an exquisite standard for how hotels should be run. Thoroughly recommended although perhaps less suited for larger family groups.
