    The town has little to offer , but the coast is in easy reach and is lovely.

    Traditional property . Good value , we had a junior suite which was huge . Terrace overlooking duomo which was nice . Breakfast was lovely , fresh bread and pastries , fruit cheeses etc , better than in some of the expensive hotels we stayed in.

    A unique property - something different, at a price.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Superior Suite
    • Stayed 4 nights

    For the price (top of our budget) we were surprised to find that the kitchen cooking facilities would have incurred an additional Eur 40,00 cost (boiling water for drinks is okay); shower cubicle is small (good shower) given size of room. Certain lack of privacy due to shared balcony (happily not a problem for the time we were there). Some guests may not approve of the catherdral bells which, being close, were loud

    Unique! For that something that's different ... nothing like a typical hotel or B&B. A large living room, a large bedroom, good sized bathroom, hallway ... in a beautiful building. Access to a shared balcony, views of the nearby cathedral or sea (across the town). Wonderful staff, administered by the lovely Rosanna. Excellent breakfasts (this was unexpected because the description does not mention breakfasts). Good bed. Easy access to town, reasonable driving distances to local scenic towns or coast. And did I say "Unique"? Nothing like it in our experience (closest being an French chateau!)

    Great apartment in historical building.

    • Junior Suite
    • Stayed 4 nights

    The bathroom needs to be modernized and the use of the kitchen costs €40 extra. This is too much, also because there isn't even pepper and salt. We did not use it.

    Very nice B&B, beautiful spacious apartment. The 2 ladies who manage the B&B are very helpful and hospitable. Great 'palazzo', historical building and location. Very good breakfast. We felt really at home.

    Ideal location in centre of town with parking outside. Excellent facilities with kitchen and lounge. Would have been happy to stay for extra nights but already booked ahead.

    An early departure precluded breakfast, but Rosanna went above and beyond and made arrangements with a local cafe. What a host!

    Nothing only the town is a little short of places to eat in the evening - this was out of season so it may be better in the summer

    The apartment (Junior Suite) was large and comfortable with access a lovely large terrace with seating overlooking the church and town - the room itself had sea views

    The smell of freshly baked pastries in the morning. Courtyard was great to sit in, cup of coffee, whilst browsing the internet. Very comfortable stay. Even catered for our scooters

    We have stayed here for a number of times as a first or last stop when travelling by ferry between Malta and Sicily - it is just a short drive from the ferry port. Very friendly staff and wonderful property.
