This is a town where you really need a room with a view which ours did not have. We were disappointed on several counts. Our particular room was very small, close to a noisy road, there was an extremely limited place to hang clothes, no power points and none of the usual amenities like bottled water let alone tea making facilities. Then there were, in our room, printed rules and regulations for proper conduct (a little insulting). While they have a Michelin starred restaurant it was impossible to get into. The view from the breakfast facility was stunning but breakfast itself (thought beautifully presented) was very limited in its choices. In addition, and as other writers to trip advisor have noted, some of the staff were condescending and unhelpful. I would not recommend this hotel.
Beautiful property in a wonderful location
We spent 3 weeks in southern Italy and the Ashbee was one of our very favorite places to stay! The view from the main lobby and restaurant is fabulous - the entire bay! The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was in a separate building on the top floor. We did not have a view but we had a somewhat private garden patio where you could read outside. Our room was very pretty and comfortable. The hotel is a just a short walk from the main tourist area of Taormina so walking to dinner or historic sites was very easy. While it was a bit cool when we visited, we didn't swim but the area by the pool is beautiful. Staying here was truly a joy!
An LHW hotel in prime position in Taormina
Friendly and helpful staff as you would expect from an LWH hotel. Breakfast is on the rooftop with an amazing view of the sea and mainland on one side and town just moments away to the other. The gym is outdoors with a stunning view of the sea but not much good other than for a run or cycle to work off all the carbs whilst in Sicily! I took a hotel car to the airport and enjoyed a good chat with Fabio, the driver.
Luxury hotel in a posh place
After spending the first 4 nights of our trip staying with a friend in Palermo and Cefalu, we decided to splurge a bit on the Ashbee hotel. It is pricey but there is a lot that you get for that price. Service is what you would expect from a luxury hotel. Everyone we met was helpful and attentive. Parking was a breeze (which was not the case with many of the hotels we stayed at in Sicily). Since we were only there one night, we didn't get to enjoy as many of the hotel's amenities as we would have liked. They were nice enough to get us a few things for breakfast early on our day of departure as we had to boogie to get up to Etna by 9 Am for a hiking trip and their breakfast service didn't start until 8. Showers are very nice and the two rooms that we had were spacious, clean and comfortable. Beautiful views from the bar/pool area that will make your friends jealous.
Overpriced with entitled rude staff
For nearly £500 a nigh you will get a an average rooms. Infested with mosquitos .... ordered a drink at the bar and the bar man aggressively said he doesnt have the ingriedients ... then he started talking Italian to a fellow worker in a funny way looking at me in my bikinis... thank you for your creepy service. Seriously get properly trained staff for £500 a night
