We stayed here for 9 nights in July. Acireale is a charming town, a hidden gem with all the Rococo grandeur of better known places like Noto, but without all the tourists.
We stayed in a standard room, which was perfectly comfortable and surprisingly spacious. The grounds are fairly compact but the pool area is lovely with a choice of sun or shade. Staff spoke good English and helped us to book a day trip to nearby Etna. The hotel was great value compared to prices in nearby Taormina.
Lunches are only served at weekends, and are well worth having.
The restaurant attached to the hotel is superb and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Lots of locals come to eat here. Veggies are well catered for, and there's some great local wine on the menu.
It's about a 10 min walk into the centre of Acireale up a gentle slope, but there is one small steep road you'll have to navigate. The approach road to the hotel is also a bit steep. Fine for most, but important to know about if you have limited mobility.
