Stay too short
Amazing attention to detail and staff ready to accomodate. Their restaurant changes menu on a daily basis and serves very fresh produce. Most amazing meal in etna area. This borgo is family run and offer true geniune hospitality.
The staff were great. The food was terrific. The location couldn't be better for trips in and around Mt Etna
Liked everything. Very welcoming, family-run business in lovely rural location. Excellent home-made food.
the place is very nice, the crew as well, espcialy Sarah - she was great and vey helpful. breakfast is very good.
Need a Sat Nav to arrive easily. We seemed to appraoch the Villa from a different direction each time - do not underestimate the labyrinth of roads locally.
Food was excellent value and mostly without fault. We ate in every night for ease. Lovely pastries and eating in was a pleasure. Staff were really lovely and could not be more helpful. Easy to access Etna, Taorima and even Syraceuse. We were given a choice of rooms too.
The food was copious but was not to the same standard as the welcome and accommodation.
The staff were charming and very attentive. The views down to the coast were fabulous. The restoration and fitting out of the buildings has been done with considerable care and attention.
The B & B Antico Borgo in Zafferana Etnea, is an outstanding lodging conveniently located near one of the primary roads to Mt. Etna. I highly recommend this beautifully restored borgo without reservation. The inn itself has attractive comfortable rooms. The grounds are exceptionally well landscaped with pleasant outdoor eating and socializing areas. It is a family run lodging. The wife is an outstanding cook and baker, serving delicious breakfasts and evening meals. The meals were the best we had in Sicily and her pastries were the fresh and delicious. The staff is very helpful and friendly, and the owners, and their daughter, go out of their way to make you feel at home.
If we had to be really picky, we travelled by public transport and found the hotel rather difficult to reach, although the hotel do arrange transfers on request.
This family run hotel is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle. The staff were really friendly and really went out of their way to ensure our stay was the best it could possibly be. We did not have an issue with the wifi, it was fantastic during our stay.
Very friendly family run business. Nice and clean accomodation. Highly recommended!
Choose the hotel because of reviews and I wasn't disappointed. Well positioned for Etna,Taormino,etc. Tricky to find as TomTom doesn't recognise the number given. Google maps slightly better. Family run and very friendly.
The family and staff made real effort to make our stay enjoyable, being both friendly and very helpful. We were particularly impressed with the food, freshly prepared every day. breakfast was invariably a magical experience and the fact that we ate in every evening indicates that we really did enjoy the food! The whole setting of the accommodation was wonderful with views up to Etna and down to the sea. The grounds were immaculate and the pool refreshing.
WiFi was not always stable but yeah your on vacation so just let the internet be the internet for some time ;-)
Antico Borgo is a splendid accomodation if you are exploring the east of Sicily! The phrase 'underpromise, overdelivery' is 100% applicable. The food is fresh and good, the rooms are great, the service and kindness of the family running it are unmatched even in service oriented tourist places like New York.
Friendly staff and personal reception with homemade cake. Clean and comfortable rooms and beautiful garden and swimming pool. Near the sea and near the Etna, both can be seen from the property.
Nothing to be disliked
Last but not least, the excellent interior and exterior architecture of the rebuilt farm and guesthouse.
It was a bit difficult to find. If you use GPS, use coordinates instead of the street address.
This facility is in one of the most beautiful settings I have ever seen. Below is the Mediterranean, above Mount Etna. The facility is gorgeous, the staff unparalleled, the food without equal and all at a reasonable price.
Staff, food, room, pool everything excellent. Highly recommend it.
Excellent family run hotel. Individual rooms in lovely grounds and good food. Great pool altogether a very relaxing place to stay.
If I really had to be picky, the locality especially coming to the place itself is quite neglected and a bit dirty. Wi-fi was a bit dodgy sometimes and the a/c works to its potential during parts of the day. These are very trivial issues which when compared to the overall stay, you'll definitely forget all this!
Everything from the staff being super friendly and getting out of their way to make sure that all residents are comfortable and having a great time, to the lodging itself, surrounded by amazing views, with a large pool, restaurant etc. Anyways one true gem, which finally I found a place where I will definitely return!
The hotel is at a wonderful spot with amazing views of Etna and the sea. All the members of the family running the hotel are very gentle and helpful, and all services provided are up to the standard.
The sign might be a bit bigger of better lighted, because we missed the gate when we arrived in the evening.
Antico Borgo Petralia was a great start for our Sicily trip. We had a spacious room, great food, there's a relaxing pool and it's located near the Etna. Also the staff is very friendly and helpfull.
wi fi problems.
lovely location.wonderful sara who spoke good english and couldnt do enough for us.unbelievable breakfasts taken under the warm sicilian sun.beautiful pool and hotel.to be highly recommended.would hope to return some day.
De ligging/ the location Zara is great. She helps you with everything and is very kind! Breakfast The beautiful views.
Nicely renovated, comfortable, the view and location, breakfast buffet, great swimming pool, free wifi, friendly staff....perfect! Stayed here twice....will come back.
If you arrive after dark, the entrance sign to the borgo is poorly lit.
Antico Borgo Petralia is excellently run by an Italian family. They make you feel as if you stay in their home. They will do absolutely everything in their power to make you feel at home.
Great place to relax. Everything seemed rather new. Restaurant was great. Staff extremely friendly and helpful.
