We arrived at the Grand Royal in a rather disgruntled frame of mind, having had a flight back to the UK cancelled due to industrial action in Italy and not being able to get another until two days hence. Our original accommodation being fully booked, the owner helpfully contacted the Grand Hotel Royal and got us booked in. It was... More

Excellent hotel with amazing view .Very polite and helpful stuff willing to help you with a smile, just few minutes walk from the main square of Sorrento. The only negative was that in the morning was a bit noisy in the main corridor outside of our room. Highly recommended!!!!

It is a little like entering a genteel time warp. The reception area is very hushed and full of period furniture and style. This ambience extends throughout the hotel. Room likewise, being furnished in a lovely period style. About the only modern touch being a new flat screen TV, which has around 10 English speaking channels. Well done. The bathroom... More

An excellent hotel that lived up to expectations. Staff were consistently helpful and friendly; the room overlooking the sea was one of the best we have stayed in anywhere; and the location is highly convenient. This was our first visit to the Amalfi coast area that is most attractive, as is Sorrento itself. To cap it all, we had two... More

We stayed in Sorrento mid-October and this hotel made the trip very special. The hotel bedrooms are spacious, beautifully furnished with luxurious bathrooms en suite. The public rooms are again beautifully presented with the dining room an especial delight. The staff were very welcoming and could not do too much for you. The location is perfect. Situated on the cliff... More

We had a perfect stay at the Royal. This is a very classy hotel, with elegant common rooms and beautiful gardens, and astounding views of the bay of Naples and Mt Vesuvius . We had booked two rooms; one was a large, superior room with a balcony offering the splendid sea views. It was just perfect. The other one was... More

Thus far my favourite in Sorrento... ideal from May-mid october (rest of the year has no access to the sea and the pool is too cold) ... It's a reminiscence of the former grand hotels, great architecture, and spacious...the dining room is from outer times...it is perfectly renovated. A bit old though if one is confined to the hotel and... More

This is truly a magnificent Hotel, we unfortunately only stayed one night and didn't arrive until 6:00pm so it was all over much to quickly. The view from our delux room with a balcony overlooking Naples Bay was simply amazing.! The room was a little smaller than I imagined however it was comfortable for two people.

We stayed for 5 nights at the end of October with our 8 year old. We were upgraded on arrival to a suite on the second floor with a balcony and spectacular view across the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius. Complimentary wine and fruit on arrival and more complimentary sparkling wine the following day for my birthday! And as... More
