We stayed for the last three nights of our Sicilian holiday at the Ashbee and were delighted with the whole experience. As other reviewers have said, the hotel is very well placed to walk to the centre of Taormina. The hotel car park is very useful as Taormina is pedestrian only. Our room was excellent with a lovely seaview. The rooftop breakfast area (with a good choice of hot & cold items) had stunning views and got the day off to a great start! The pool and other relaxation areas had equally superb views down onto the Messina Straits. We ate at the hotel one evening and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal aided by a well priced and excellent local red wine - recommended by the sommelier. We received sound advice about other restaurants to visit for lunch and dinner. Altogther a faultless experience and well worth another visit.
