Maybe should have been shut for refurbishment?

by Jennie P on 21 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

We stayed 2 nights in January, as this was one of the few open hotels, through I suggest this should have been shut for refurbishment too. The room was dated and then the bathroom, once we could force the door open over the tiles, was in the most hideous orange colour that it hurt your eyes to enter. Also, the staff were completely disengaged, to the point of not acknowledging my wife's identification of out of date and mouldy butter. This all said, the pool looked lovely, so maybe it would be n...

Christmas 2016

by Castlelite on 19 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

An amazing week in Taormina arriving Christmas Eve and returning New Year's Eve. A fantastic Hôtel with views of the sea and Mount Etna. Our room with a sea view was great. A high ceiling and tasteful curtains, two balconies and an excellent size. A plate of sweet meats was provided plus a lemon cake provided by Taormina cars who provided our taxi from the airport (Prestige Holidays). Our daughter had a standard room which had a view of Mount Etna. Reception was excellent and arranged 2 tours fo...

Great position

by Richard A on 12 Dec 2016 (Couple Traveller)

We were booked in by a travel agent into this fine upmarket hotel overlooking the Ionian Sea, facing Mt Etna and on the edge of Taormina itself.

Weather coolly perfect and sunny. Fine restaurants, views, side-trips and the astounding Teatro Greco await the guests.

An excellent base for exploring Taormina

Built in 1904, the exterior and interior of the Excelsior Palace is in a grand ornate style. Perhaps one of its main advantages is its situation adjacent to one of the public multi storey public carparks if its own parking spaces are full. It is perched on the edge of a rocky outcrop with superb views down to the sea and across to Mt. Etna. It is also at the end of Taormina’s main concourse (pedestrianised most of the time) thus giving very easy and fairly level access to the town centre. The ...

Smile please

by CarefulScreening on 13 Nov 2016 (Couple Traveller)

The hotel is a striking old building in a great location. Our bedroom was a good size and comfortable but the decor was a little dated, in keeping with the hotel's overall decor. The en suite bathroom was quite large but the shower and bath arrangement was awkward and called for care when showering. The dining room has been updated well, with stylish lighting and a white scheme including covered dining chairs. We were half board, and the evening meals were mostly good and worth the cost. ...
