The Ashbee Hotel is a beautiful property...simply gorgeous. We received a warm welcome when we arrived and throughout our stay. We had two different rooms. The first one was located in the main building and was luxurious. Everything in the spacious room was well appointed and comfortable. The second room was located in a side building and was also well...

The building and gardens of this hotel are without doubt very beautiful. The location is excellent for both the main town and access to the cable car to the beach. The staff were wonderful. Nino welcomed us in a very friendly manner and made some great suggestions for what to do during our stay in Taormina. Irene (reception) was also...

This is definitely one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Great setting, super room, the staff were so friendly and obliging, housekeeping was superb. The breakfast was served on a terrace with a wonderful view and this doubled as a bar on the evening where you can sit on the terrace and enjoy a pre or post dinner...

An elegant hotel with lovely views, classic rooms and facilities. Staff very competent and helpful. Housekeeping excellent. Good location in Taormina but a little noisy on occasion. Small outdoor pool and terrace area with a lovely ambiance. Roof top breakfast area with views you'll remember forever. Room decor perfect. Wear the right protection against late afternoon mosquitoes (not the fault...

Our stay at Hotel Ashbee was great. The rooms were clean, spacious, comfortable and nicely designed. The view of the sea and landscape from the back outdoor pool was beautiful. Service staff was very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate my 30th birthday. Everything was perfect. The staff, the hotel, the breakfast. It was just towards the end of their season so we often had the whole pool to ourselves which was a real luxury. Thank you.

A beautfiul hotel with great service. Very peaceful location, but right in the centre of things as soon as you leave the gates. Wonderful rooftop breakfast overlooking the sea. We had a very comfortable room with good air conditioning and decent sized beds. Definitely a place to chill out and relax.

This hotel is lovely and is definitely worth its star rating. The room was lovely, though a bit small but we were only here for 5 nights so it was fine. The bed was comfortable, we had a really nice telly (for the amount of time we watched it!) and the air conditioning is really good, though we did not...

My husband and I stayed at the Ashbee for 3 days in mid-August. The hotel has a great location and views. I've been coming to Sicily for years and there aren't many luxury hotels so we were pleasantly surprised with how nice the Ashbee was. The service was great. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Francesco...

Had superior room overlooking driveway. Ok apart from road noise and pollution smells at busy times - one of main routes into Taormina. Big room and towel changes twice a day were a very pleasant surprise. Great views from breakfast terrace but breakfast more geared to continental style - lots of cakes and sweet goods. Never heard of herbal teas....
