    What an amazing hotel. The location is excellent, only 2 min away by foot to the main street in Taormina. The hotel staff was very good and always ready to help. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, clean and the view is breathtaking. I will definitely return to the Ashbee.

    The location of the Ashbee hotel is fantastic in order to visit Taormina as it is just down the hill from the arch that leads to the main shopping/eating district. Also very near the bus station for airport/excursions etc. The staff are friendly and helpful and very polite. The pool is gorgeous and teh decor of the rooms is beautiful.

    The prices charged for food/drink in hotel is beyond crazy- 5.00 eur for a can of coke???? Insane.....This should definitely be revised if they actually want to encourage people to stay and eat and drink at the hotel....esp as the location is so near the town you are better off to go to the centre if you don't have money to burn!!

    There are so many great things to write about The Ashbee that I don't know where to start. Firstly, the hotel itself is beautiful - cannot fault it at all - quality and luxury and it's very quiet at night in your room so for a light sleeper like myself, I was very pleased to easily get a good night sleep. The service from all staff was excelllent - there was no request that was too difficult or outside their job role - they exceeded our expectations on many occasions. All of the staff were always very warm and freindly - we simply cannot commend them enough - we were very impressed! Great location - easy to get to the beaches and close to all of the restaurants and shops. Highly recommended.

    It seems to be a common trend with all European hotels but we really would have liked the convenience of an iron and ironing board in the room. It is somewhat of a hassle to have to think of what you want to wear on the following day, send it off by a certain time and pay for that service. It would be great to just do your own ironing whenever you feel like it. Also, this is only a small thing but it would be better if the rooms have a kettle in them becuase we like to bring our own teas and drink them as we please. With no kettles provided in the rooms we couldn't do so.

    The service of the Front desk employees was superb. Taormina is a quaint town and we enjoyed very much being close to the ce ter if the town, but the real differentiation of this hotel is the genuine interest and effort demonstrated by Irene, Valerio, Maurizio and Danilo. They took care of all our arrangements of. Flights, excursions, recommendations and reservations for restaurants making our stay relaxing. I can not thank enough for the service provided. Certainly this type of service can only be seenina boutique hotel, not a commercial chain.

    I can't complain of anything, but it would be nice if thw hotel is located at the beach.

    The staff friendliness was out of the ordinary. Within one day they all knew who we were and adressed us accordingly. The General Manager was most courtious to us also.

    Service by the pool tended to be a bit slow. The hotel needs to have a restaurant. Not all rooms are accessible by a list. I have a slight foot disability and it was not very comfortable to walk up a fliught of steps.

    What a beautiful hotel. This Hotel is in a fantastic location and the decor and the food were top notch. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable beds.

    Unfortunately the air conditioning was not working at this time and the staff lied saying that there was a Law in the area stating they were not allowed to turn it on. Also on arrival we asked for our laundry to be done and they did not have a price list. They returned the washing (1 load) and quoted over 100 EUR!!!.The hotel would have been amazing but they are still getting the last finishing touches done to the hotel as it has only been open a month. We left a night early due to the air conditioning not working and being pregnant this was very uncomfortable. When the hotel has their last finishing touches complete I think it will be an amazing place to stay.

    The rooms are very comfortable and extremely clean. The staff are super courteous and polite. The hotel grounds are very well kept and there is ample place where to relax. The hotel is well located within 100m of the centre.

    There were no umbrellas available by the pool area. We were informed by the staff that as the hotel had only just opened the umbrellas had not yet been purchased but we were promised that they would be purchased the following week.

    Fabulous

    The staff were attentive and very helpful. The terrace and pool area enjoyed amazing views over the dramatic coastline and mountains.

    It would be nice to have the roof garden open - I understand this will happen soon, together with a bar/restaurant, shich I'm sure will be amazing.

    Fabulous

    Beautiful hotel & location. Hotel staff very helpful - particularly the girls on reception.

    Hotel too pricey for what they offer. Very, very disappointed with the breakfast - not a good advert for the hotel and Italy the home of good food. Very disappointed about the hidden charges - chargeable biscuits in room for example. Apparently this was mentioned on the minbar menu - not much help if if don't use or check the minbar! Bar is overpriced. Mojitos were 15 euro each and average quality.

    Excellent location, close to the centre but no noise. The view from the terras is stunning. Staff is really friendly. Good airconditioning in the clean rooms. We enjoyed our stay really much, we had a really relaxing week!

    We could hear the people in the room above us walk. So when they went to the bathroom at night we woke up aswell.
