“Great Breakfast and Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Start your day with freshly squeezed orange juice from the machine, beautiful view from the balcony. The transfer bus takes you down to Sorrento, just need to plan around the pick up times. The local bus to Pariano stops just out the front, very conveinant. Dinner was excellent. Overall a great place to stay. Sorrento itself is a little crowded with English tour groups, so be prepared.

Dear Neil,
Thank you so much for selecting our hotel for your recent visit and for writing such a nice review. I was happy to hear you enjoyed our hotel and the surrounding area. In fact the orange juice machine is one of our highlights, and the best way to start the day!
We really hope to see you in future.

We've just returned from a fabulous week at the Il Nido hotel in Sorrento and couldn't fault it. We booked following our experience of the restaurant last year and the hotel didn't disappoint. As we expected the food was amazing and the service second to none. This is a family run hotel which really is a home from home. The hotel is pristine and always immaculate, our rooms were great and the free shuttle bus runs like clockwork, totally reliable, making getting too and from Sorrento town a pleasure. The location of the hotel means you have the contrast between the liveliness of Sorrento town and the peace and quite of being just outside; just a few minutes on the shuttle bus. The views from the hotel combined with exceptional service make this hotel just perfect for exploring all the towns from Naples right along the coast to Ravello. Highly recommended. A huge thank you to Dino and the rest of the family.

First stay was 2006 and I was extremely happy with my stay, so why try something else when you were so delighted the first time. We were not disappointed ! Gianni and his family take great pride in their family run hotel and it shows! Breakfasts as mentioned before are always fresh and will satisfy everyone's meal option. Lots of choice and always refilled as necessary. His staff is well trained and very attentive with the guests. Evening meals on the terrace overlooking the blue waters of Naples is amazing. Lots of room in the lovely dining area and one feels well taken care of when you sit down to a relaxing meal. Always upon arrival you will be offered a wonderful glass of Prosecco to start off your welcome dinner. Very nice touch!
Personally, I love the dining room decor. The cheerful lemon yellow, trimmed with white throughout the hotel is very warm and reminds me of the wonderful lemons which give Sorrento its distictiveness. Our room was perfect, with a good size balcony with comfortable chairs and table for sipping that beer after a long day of touring! Lots of storage for clothes and a big closet as well . Nice not having to live out of your suitcase the whole time. There is a small fridge in the room which comes in handy. Another nice feature is the washing machine and dryer available down stairs ( for a nomimal fee) and laundry soap and softener provided , as well as ironing facilities all au gratis! Each room has a little clothes line set up outside the balcony which allows cleaning clothes during your stay.
Although the hotel is a ways out of the town, the very regular and reliable shuttle service is always available to take passengers down or back from town on a convenient schedule. His brother is the professional driver and a terrific fellow, always pleasant . The shuttle bus is well maintained and clean. When you are leaving by train, you are driven to the station which also saves Euros for the guests! If you arrive by car, there is a large parking area available on the roof top. For us, it was a bonus, to come back to a hotel in a quiet hilltop location where you could be away from all the noise and tourist traffic of the town of Sorrento.
The hotel is spotless, which is a huge plus for me, as I am a neat freak! One day , I saw the dining room server standing on a table to clean each individual crystal on the chandelier hanging above the dining room. The rails on the balconies, not any dust anywhere, windows are all shiny in the dining room and the bedrooms. Bathroom was so clean which is a huge deal as well.
Any questions, about the many options for touring around the area are handled promptly and the staff will tell you what is your best method of getting there.
You will not find a better place to stay with an intimate feel , terrific host, and very reasonable prices for the view alone!

Thank you again , Gianni for our wonderful 6 day stay and the lovely "surprise" you offered us!
Wish you and your family all the best for 2013 and on!

Loved the food and the views. Everyone was professional and warm -most of the time. Morning shuttle driver could be a little grumpy. Afternoon driver always happy and smiling..

The rooms a little dated but we knew that when we booked. I felt insecure showering in the bath as not a flat base. But anyway we don't have a bath at home so enjoyed the daily splash rather than a shower. The cloth rather than towelling towels were thinner than i'm used to but did the job.

Plenty of choice for breakfast and for the 6 nights of our stay we ate in as Mammas food was great and the desserts all home made. If you do stay the Tiramasu is a must.

Plenty of advice and assistance if you want to book any day trips.

Room Tip: Ensure you have a room with the view.

Love this family owned and run first-rate hotel in the hills above Sorrento. Very clean, large, comfortable rooms with awesome views of the Bay of Naples and Mt. Vesuvius. Excellent restaurant and extensive breakfast buffet with a balcony, a great place to sit and talk and enjoy the wonderful food and view. Good prices on top of the excellent food keep us coming back up the hill for dinner. Nice, big bathrooms with bathtubs, laundry, wi-fi, air conditioning, constant, reliable and free shuttle service to Sorrento with easy connections to Capri, the Amalfi coast, Pompeii, Naples and Vesuvius. The perfect place to come back to after day trips around the area. We've been visiting this hotel since 2003 and they are constantly working to improve an already excellent experience.

Room Tip: Definitely get a room with a view!

Free shuttle bus was great - only 10 mins into town - the drivers were well presented and friendly. Had brilliant views from car park. Breakfast was excellent - fresh orange juice, cooked food, fresh fruit, cakes, cereals, cheeses and meats, yogurts. The room was ok - the bath a little small.

We just got back from Italy and we love this family-owned hotel in Sorrento.
It is a little away from town but the free shuttle service from the hotel makes going down/up the town or even to the train station (on departure date) very convenient.
The service here is great and if you look for a friendly and comfortable environment for your stay in Sorrento, strongly recommend this hotel (friendly people who are there to help) :)
Not to mention it's breakfast buffet - lots to choose from and we love the mini heart-shape donuts (had that every morning during our 5 days' stay)
Our first evening dinner was at the restaurant -comfortable and warm setting with home-style cooking and it was one of the best meals we had (the jumbo shrimp is awesome). The beautiful nightview of Sorrento town just made everything perfect!!
We even used its self-service washing service - great help when we were trying to travel lighter this time.

Would definitely stay here again, if we make it back to Sorrento!!

Room Tip: Rooms with view - price is very reasonable so try to get one if possible.
