“Perfect for us”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I think this is our 24th visit to The Excelsior.
Over the years the hotel has got better and better.
A friendly family run business with charming staff.
The food is very good and typically Italian. Delicious pasta with non creamy sauces and excellent meat and fish. A good choice of desserts
The swordfish, grouper, scorpion and bream were very tasty and moist. Beautiful Roast beef veal and turkey were fantastic.
Contrary to a previous report the Wi-Fi was available in reception and there is also a hotel laptop for guests to use. The courtesy bus is free and there is also a Sita bus from the hotel to Amalfi at E2.5.
The sunrises while we were there were amazing as was the pool. Refreshing after a day out in the sun with hot showers both around the pool and in the cloakroom area.
Although we went at the end of the season the hotel was still busy but never gave the impression of being crowded.
Josette our Thompson representative is the best we have ever met. She really works hard to make your holiday the best it can be in this beautiful part of Italy

We had a wonderful holiday at the Excelsior Grand Hotel. It is a beautiful place, full of character. Every room has a fantastic view over the sea.
Our room and adjoining bathroom were well equipped, clean and comfortable. We went half board and the food was excellent both the breakfasts and the evening meals.
The staff were all very good. They were welcoming, friendly, efficient and all helped to make our stay extremely enjoyable.
I know that some people have criticised the furnishings and suggested that the hotel should be refurbished. We rather liked the furniture and, particularly, the decor and the beautiful ceramic tiles. I hope that if the owners do decide to refurbish the hotel, they keep the character of the place.
If you like a very modern hotel that looks as if it could be any hotel, anywhere in the world or if you want exactly the sort of food you would get in the UK, then this is probably not the hotel for you. If you want a charming Italian hotel with good food, beautiful views and friendly, helpful staff then I would recommend the Excelsior Grand Hotel.

Have recently returned from a one week stay at The Excelsior Grand Hotel Amalfi, 7th-14th October 2013. The location was breathtaking. A room with a beautiful sea view. The hotel was very clean and all the staff could not do enough for us. A special mention has to go to Giovanni the Restaurant Manager who did an excellent job and all his lovely, helpful staff. Also Antonio (Mamma Mia!) who was also very cheerful and helpful. We can understand when talking to the guests why they return year after year. Home baked bread, cakes and pastries but to name a few choices on the breakfast menu. Excellent. Hope to return again another year.

The location and views from here are absolutely stunning, our room was in a sort of annex which was away from the main building. We thought this was going to be a problem, however it turned out good and we were very happy there. The staff were friendly and helpful and the dinner on the terrace was excellent. Pool area and pool were also very spacious and well set out with great views over the sea. Free scuttle bus to the town ran regularly.

The hotel is located high above Amalfi town and has great views. The good news ends here. The hotel has not been renovated since the 70s? - no wifi, no entertainment, grumpy bar staff and not convenient if you miss the hotel's complimentary shuttle bus. Stay closer to Amalfi town

We recently travelled to amalfi italy. We stayed at the Excelsior Grand Hotel. The staff there is amazing and couldn't do anything more to make our stay enjoyable. What a view from the rooms!! Highly recommend this hotel.

The spectacular view was the best part of my 4 night stay at this hotel. Continental breakfast was adequate. The room was large with a terrace. Unfortunately it must have been fly season so I was unable to take advantage of the outdoor spaces. Travel to town required taking the shuttle or city bus service. I had dinner only one night at the hotel. The food was nothing to rave about and the service was lacking.

Note~. Watch your step entering the breakfast room. For some my eyes didn't pick up the step and I almost fell. A traveller in my group did fall and the staff did not even come to assist.

Room Tip: Every room has a view of the countryside and harbor.
