A beautiful hotel, particularly the sea-view room with balcony and spa bath - all very tastefully decorated. The landscaped gardens and restaurant terrace are perfect for an evening drink. The pool was not in use when we stayed, a disappointment at first but actually the weather was a bit on the cool side for sun-bathing although it was sunny.
The town of Seiano is small but well connected by train to Naples, Pompei and Sorrento from where you can get a boat to the island of Capri - all excellent day trips. The station is a bit rough looking and covered in graffiti but very cheap and the most convenient way to get about. As in any tourist area I would hang on to your valuables but we didn't have any problems with security. The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful and gave excellent suggestions for restaurants etc. The michelin starred restaraunt at the hotel is only open during high season and the food is amazing but expensive. There were two other very good restaurants down at the harbour.
We were encouraged by the hotel staff to take a taxi trip along the Amalfi Coast which seemed a lot of money, but well worth it and much better than taking a coach trip or public bus. Our taxi driver got us into all the best car parks for exploring each coastal port and had lots of local knowledge and stories in his broken english. He put on the "old-croners" tapes of Sol e mio and even serenaded us whilst skillfully negotiating some serious hairpin bends as only an Italian driver could!
Will definately go back!
