    Location is superb with a view of the Valley of the Temples. A wonderful old building - a small delightful hotel. Nice being out in the country.

    The hotel has the feeling of having seen better days - it needs attention...doesn't seem to be well maintained.

    It's an old manor house with beautiful gardens and terraces which have a good view of the Valley of the Temples and the town of Agrigento. The two guys at reception were pleasant, friendly and helpful.

    A warning to guests arriving by car - don't take the sign for Agrigento as the hotel isn't in town, and the directions provided by Booked.net are hopeless. We spent one hour going round in circles trying to find the Domus Aurea (and the tourist information in Agrigento didn't know where it was). If you're arriving from the west, the road will fork just before you enter Agrigento. The fork to the right goes to Agrigento and the fork to the left is signed Siracusa. Take the Siracusa road and don't whatever you do go into Agrigento itself. A few kilometres further along and you'll find a yellow sign for the hotel on the right. If you're arriving from the east, follow the sign for Trapani and you'll eventually find a yellow hotel sign, also on the right (there are exits from the main road to the hotel on both sides of the road). Once off the main road there are signs which lead you to the hotel. As for the hotel, the room was small and the bathroom was tiny. The pressure of the hot water was very weak, and water wouldn't drain from the bidet. The hotel is situated halfway between the Valley of the Temples and the seaside town of San Leone, so eating out in the evening will entail a taxi ride unless you don't mind drinking only water with your meal. There is another option - to eat in the restaurant of the Domus Aurea's sister hotel, but even that is a short dirt track car ride away. The breakfast buffet was served in the garden with a good selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurts, breads and pastries. However the breakfast waiter was absolutely clueless, and never once, while removing empty plates from the buffet, checked the hot water and coffee pots (which remained empty until guests had to point it out to him). Nor did he realise that our table hadn't any cups etc. On my circuit of the buffet I asked him to bring a cup, which he did. However when he brought my cup to the table he didn't notice that my friend was also without a cup.
