Stayed for seven nights and glad we were not put off by some of the reviews on this site.
Old hotel with old style charm and decor the staff were excellent the provided minibus to the beach and Palermo was really useful(and free). Yes the drinks were expensive but when you
take into the account the great breakfast (to 11.00) the views from the terrace and the free mini bus (to and from hotel) I think my end of stay bill was fair. The staff always seemed to be cleaning and I would recomend the Hotel as worth it.
Palermo is not a bad city if you prefer the roughness and character of southern Italy (like Naples) to the pretensioness ofTuscany
In all will be back to see more of Scilly.
