Guisy and Valerie could not have been more accomodating and friendly, and went out of their way to offer help. The location was beautiful - flowers, lemon groves, and views of Mount Etna. Secure parking and air conditioning were free. Convenient to public transport - train and bus.
The friendly and helpful attitude of the staff, Ms Giusy, impressed us very much. She gave us a warm reception as well as attending service during our stay. Easily reach Mt. Etna and beaches. There are good restaurants nearby.
No TV in room.
Antico Borgo is a charming old building set in a lovely garden bursting with colour and surrounded by groves of lemon, orange and other fruit trees. It provides very comfortable, well-appointed accommodation within easy reach of Catania, Taormina and the coast. It is one of the most friendly,welcoming and hospitable of places you can imagine and just remembering it brings a smile to my face. Fresh orange juice for breakfast comes from fruit picked from the tree that morning. And the view across to Mount Etna is stunning. I loved the place and the people.
I couldn't fault the hotel itself. The only disadvantage which others have mentioned is its proximity to the busy autostrada but the rooms are quiet and air-conditioned and the noise is not at all intrusive.
peace and quiet. opportunity to have dinner on one night of typical sicilian food. excellent and good value
The setting and surroundings are lovely. All was very good. Perhaps a clear sign stating the Name in Large letters would be of help.
The grounds were beautiful and our room very comfortable although air conditioning would improve it.
If you go on a Sunday the restaurant is not open. We did not know this and went there particularly for the sicilian food experience, which meant that we were very disappointed and had to settle for an over priced average meal in town. The breakfast was also not as expected, the juice was of the cartoon variety and yet we were surrounded by oranges, there was no fresh fruit etc.
Beautiful site and lovely service. Enjoyed our stay immensely, thank you.
Warm and helpful staff, big garden, very privat.
Very noisy (close to motorway), no air conditioning (only ventilation), the windows can not maintained open because the nise and musqitos
We liked it very much! A great place to stay and next to the (little) trainstation of Calebatiano. We liked the people that helped us very much! And can recommend this for everybody that want to see Taormina or the complete area.
Very close to the highway (you can hear the sound very good), but this is in no way a reason to not go to this lovely place.
