8/10 Very Good

Good Value for Location
This hotel is a good value for its location. The only thing I would recommend to the management is an upgrade of the mattress in the room. There was nothing wrong with it but we prefer the newer foam mattresses. We intend to stay at this Le Piccole Grotte again.

Please note I fully understand that this is not a 5 star resort.. Not properly stocked with towels or toilet paper. Air conditioner did not work properly. Sheets are clean and nice - Bedding cover is very old, worn and faded. Same with the furniture in the room.

The view is worth the walk
Scilla is an amazing town and the Picollo Grotto was perfect for experiencing old Italy. All the amenities and all the charm.

Charming B&B in an old cobbled street
Le Piccole Grotte / La Locandiera is lovely. It's in the heart of Scilla's old town on a narrow, cobbled street barely accessible by car (if you're driving you'll have to park on the main road a good couple of street up the hillside) and a ten-minute walk from the beach. It's in an old house, renovated to a good standard (including a lift) but in keeping with the style of the building and the bedrooms have a rustic charm to them. Our room was spacious and comfortable and we had a balcony which gave onto the sea which was wonderful. We really found our stay in Scilla relaxing and restoring and ate lots of fresh fish and seafood. The only thing I would improve about La Locandiera is the breakfast, which could have more selection on the buffet (cold meats, cheeses, etc). I would definitely recommend it.

Central hotel in old part of town, close to water & restaurants. Cannot park close to hotel , but staff can assist to park.

Quaint B&B with interesting art
Our overnight stay in Scilla was marred by inclement weather but that did give us an appreciation for the treacherous seas that local fishermen must deal with. The property is in a narrow street away from the town centre and the lower beach area, however we found enough dining choices nearby once it started to pour rain. Room was very small with not really anywhere to put bags out of the way, but it did have a nice aspect onto the street and looking out over rooftops.
