We have just returned from a touring holiday in Italy which included Sicily. We have stayed in a number of hotels all of which have been first class. However our final night was in Sorrento and we chose this hotel because of its beautiful and quiet location. What a mistake! It is advertised as 4 star but goodness knows how, as it was nothing like the previous hotels with the same rating.
The service was absolutely dreadful, both the ladies working there were unpleasant and unhelpful. The corridor leading to our small bedroom was unlit, the shower was cold and as for the breakfast! We were abruptly told breakfast was 'al bar' and were handed a croissant each on 1 plate with 1 knife. I asked if we could have some fruit juice and we were each given a small plastic cup of weak lemon squash. What a shame that our last impressions of such a beautiful country were disappointing. This hotel does not deserve custom especially when there are so many hotels where the staff can't do enough to be helpful and accomodating.
