Steeped in history, the hotel was also as sophisticated and as charming as my wife had hoped it would be! This was booked as a birthday surprise for me and until we pulled up to the hotel entrance, I had no idea where in Sicily we were staying and i have to say neither of us were disappointed! The attention...

Yes its an expensive hotel but everything matches the price, which is not always the case. There was nothing to fault. We stayed in a junior suite with a garden overlooking the sea and Mount Etna. What's not to like! Brilliantly located in the town, with a car park tucked away at the back which requires taking the scenic route...
