The “The Ashbee Hotel”, a perfectly restored villa from the beginning of the twentiest century, is a perfect combination of traditional Sicilian architecture and the more cosmopolitan English one. The residence was once owned by the general Shaw-Hellier who let the property be designed by the world famous architect Charles Robert Ashbee, one of the major representatives of the London Arts & Crafts movement.

Just few steps from the famous Corso Umberto, in the heart of Taormina, you will have the opportunity to visit theatres, museums and plenty of historical and artistic pieces of art, or do shopping in the exclusive boutiques or in the typical local art shops. You will also be delighted by the Sicilian and Italian cuisine, and have the chance to taste international dishes that have been originally melt to the Mediterranean tradition.

Situated within a wonderful park, characterized by typical Sicilian lemon, mandarin and grapefruit trees, “The Ashbee Hotel” offers its guests plenty of services and ideal comfort, following the spirit of the English Style, which perfectly symbolizes the welcoming atmosphere of the property. The modern rooms and suites which integrate antique elements, melt harmony, comfort, technology and taste, in order to guarantee an elegant and exclusive ambiance.

The Ashbee Bar offers its guests a warm, welcoming atmosphere and it represents the ideal place in which to benefit from relaxing moments, for example by tasting a tea in pure British style while enjoying the exclusive Sicilian surrounding.

The elegant Roof Garden with its spectacular view over the Ionian sea, the Calabria region and miles and miles of breathtaking coastlines, welcomes you for an aperitif with relaxing background music.
And after dinner, the hotel’s large Lounge Terrace will delight you with its evocative atmosphere.

Under the warm sun of Taormina you will enjoy the property’s solarium, snack bar and the panoramic swimming-pool in a green surrounding, where to read or simply relax.

His Opinion: As lovely as The Ashbee is we did have a few gripes. Our room was Number 37, a lovely deluxe room. However, it is next to the road and there is a bar at the back. We encountered a lot of noise until late into the night, which if we were staying longer we would have asked to move rooms. The biggest gripe was the drinks prices at the pool bar. 2 vodka and tonics was €32 which we both believed a bit too steep. Whilst we were not expecting it to be cheap, we both thought it too much. If it had been less we would have used the roof top and pool bar more. As it was we had our sundowner vodka and tonics on the balcony at The Metropole and enjoyed a bit of jazz and yummy snacks for a lot less.

His Opinion: Very impressed - only criticism would be the pool service. Limited loungers and lack of service - think face cloths, complimentary fruit skewers and ice water should be offered regularly.

His Opinion: We loved out time at The Ashbee. It is a very special boutique hotel. The rooms, public areas and pool are beautiful. Our junior suite provided lovely space. The location at the end of Corso Umberto saves you the long climbs involved in many Taormina Hotels. We strongly recommend this hotel.
