Just home from a fantastic week at The Ashbee and would return tomorrow if possible. We arrived very late at night and received a warm welcome from a smiling Serena and Mario. Throught our holiday the staff could not be more helpful or pleasant. Our room was spotlessly clean, the decor and the finish were excellent. So comfortable and quiet that we slept late every day. The hotel is situated in a great position at the beginning of the main street which is very busy but the hotel was like a little oasis of calm from the chaos and biz of Taormina. The views from the terrace and the pool are stunning, both during the day and in the evening. Having breakfast outside with these views was an absolute treat. No restaurant at this hotel but the staff recommended some lovely restaurants and always seemed to manage to book the best table for us. A restaurant is planned for next year, this will be a great addition. Loved this hotel from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. Thanks to Irene, Valerio and the rest of the friendly staff for making our stay with you one to remember and one we hope to repeat. Would happily recommend this hotel.
