My wife and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Royal for 7 nights from the 12th of October, 2012. We arrived quite late and were greeted by a very charming receptionist who checked us in very quickly and courteously escorted us to the lift,even pressing the floor button for us.We were on the sixth floor.
The room was beautifully furnished, spacious and spotlessly clean. Our bags were delivered to the room within minutes by a very cheery porter. Throughout the week the room was very well maintained, toiletries replaced daily and all the housekeeping staff that we came into contact with were cheery and friendly.
We went down to the dining room on the first evening and were greeted by Antonino who showed us to a table. I offered our apologies for being late, it was nearly 9.30pm.Absolutely no problem."Enjoy your meal and do not rush". The food was excellent as we were to find on all 7 nights of our stay. The Gala buffet was wonderfull. The waiting staff were very efficient and friendly and could'nt do enough to please us.
Breakfast was a magnificent buffet with more choice than I have seen in most hotels.
Patriczia,cooking the eggs, in whichever way you chose, was an absolute darling!!
The public rooms were very restfull and beautifully furnished.
It was a delight to wander through the very well kept gardens and onto the terrace to sit and enjoy the magnificent views and soak up the sun. The staff were unobtrusive, but always polite, friendly and helpful.
Although we did not use the pool area it was certainly very pleasant and well maintained.
We made the mistake of going down to the beach area just as it was about to close.The attendant there was friendly and quite happy to wait a few minutes extra whilst I took photographs and accompanied us back.
The only little niggle that I had were the Bar prices, which were very high. For example, a very small measure of Tio Pepe sherry at 6 Euros equated to 1 Euro a sip!!
We had a fabulous holiday in Sorrento and are so pleased that we chose this most wonderfull hotel. We are already planning a return next year when we will stay for longer.
