B&B Villa Ambra
Ranked #7 of 129 Noto B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 26, 2013

A bit of a walk if you're arriving by bus or train, but has good parking. There's nothing really around the B&B in terms of bars or restaurants, just other houses. It's around 15 minutes into town, a slightly trip.

The owners were very friendly and helpful the son speaks good English; the father didn't speak much but was very kind, showing us books on Sicily and giving us some of his home-grown produce.

The room was comfortable and quiet. There is a nice rooftop terrace with views to the old town. Would stay there again.

Arriving at this B&B, the location was not quite what we were expecting and the area did not seem to be the greatest although actually it was fine. However the very friendly welcome of the owners helped make up for our first impressions. The walk into town is only 15 mins but it is not the nicest walk and if you have problems with walking or it was raining it would not be great. The room was clean and spacious and the secure parking is a real bonus.

Perfect location from which to explore the south east of Sicily. After our arrival we were offered a drink while Ambra told us quickly all the best places to visit. The room was spacious and clean, the car park secure and the cornetto with ricotta served in the morning the best breakfast possible.
We had a brilliant time

This place is nice, owners are friendly, secure parking and you can walk to the centre of the town in twelve minutes. Only 2 downpoints: it's just as 's expensive as the b&b's that are actually in the town centre and ( unfortunately they don't have a special rate for à single room) and you have to walk to the town centre if you want to buy a drink or a snack since there is no bar or restaurant, and there are no shops nearby.

This is a charming place to stay. The hotel (b&b) is is a family run business and is situated in their family house. The family are friendly and hugely helpful The location is excellent, well out of the tourist ant run only a few minutes walk (v.good exercise, any doctor will tell you that) from the centre. The location is excellent, tranquil withy lovely views of historic Noto and the sea. The excellent breakfast is served by Ambra or her father; the place is spotlessly clean; the fittings arer good and the services all work I would recommend Villa Ambra to any discerning traveller.

Room Tip: Top floor facing Noto
