I cannot understand all the poor reviews for this 3 star rated hotel. Spent 4 nights there with husband and daughter on 4th floor (room 414) with great sea view in a spacious room with adequate bathroom. Fridge was included at no extra cost. Room and hotel was very clean. Old fashioned yes but not worn out!
We were given a table for our stay, food was good but not much choice. We were given two choices of starter and mains and you had to give your choices to the waiter the evening before. Waiters and all other staff pleasant enough. Was disappointed that the Blue Bar was closed during our stay (end of season). Visited the bar in the adjoining building where we had drinks, ice cream and pizza - this bar is frequented by the locals and is quite lively. Pleasant walk down into Cefalu either by the steps to the beach or on the main road.
Cefalu was wonderful so interesting a real delight to walk around. I cant wait to return - however next time we will ensure that we check out the trains are all running - our last day was a festival day and the train station was closed when we went for our train and so encountered a 120 euro fare to the airport. Rail travel is very cheap and a good way to get around.
