We found the room to be very clean, big and comfortable. We made good use of the kitchen and bought local produce and made dinner and ate on the terrace with the most amazing views of Mt. Etna and the sea. The pool area is very nice, you have to wear a cap but they are provided at a low cost. We found the breakfast to be very good, there was a good mixture of sweet and savory, plenty of fruit and the coffee was very nice. The B&B is farther out of the main town than we were expecting. It doesn't take long to get down to the centre of town, the walk back up is doable but in the heat of summer we always ended up very sweaty. I would recommend taking a taxi if you are arriving by bus until you become familiar with the shortcuts. It takes about 25 minutes to walk to the bus terminal (35 on the way back), I would recommend getting about by bus as the train station is very far out of town. We did a Mt. Etna tour while we were there, they are expensive but it is worth it to get a closer look at the mountain. Samantha, the host, was very helpful in answering our questions and booked a tour for us.
