Stayed here as daughter was a patient in Palermo hospital duriing our holiday, so was unplanned but recommended by hospital. Lovely reception area, where staff were very helpful, even when I needed numerous faxes to be sent to different countries. Rooms clean and a good size. Breakfast buffet very good, and replenished promptly. Only down side was that we ate in the restaurant in the hotel on the first night, which is run by an independant company not the hotel, but the food was awful and the staff unbelievably rude! It was 9.20pm, though the empty restaurant was open till 10pm and the staff ignored us until we approached them. Clearly didnt want to be bothered, but said we could eat. Chef came out and looked at her watch, and the staff spent the time it took us to eat 1 course saying loudly 'the English were impossible' and glowering at us. Potatoes were semi raw, 1 limp lettuce leaf on plate and overcooked meat. Vile! Chef left during our 1 course. Hotel v good , but eat out in any of the many good restaurants about at night.
