We have now returned from Sorrento; we had absolutely wonderful time.

The Grand Hotel Flora was nice; very clean and staff all seemed to be very nice and attentive. The location was not bad neither; it's a bit of a walk from the town centre (maybe about 10 minutes) but we did not mind at all. I think for those who stay at Parco Del Sol (?), the walk on the main road leading to the main town square would be too far and can be dangerous as the road itself can be very busy with Italians driving like mad and the pedestrian pavements are not always there, if not very narrow; probably you would have to get a bus or taxi...

We took a last minute deal and paild discounted price so we did not have much expectation of the room as we knew that we would be out and about every day and only stayed there for sleeping.

The room we had was rather small and so as the bathroom, however it was clean and the bed was made everyday. We requested for a room away from the main street so it was quiet too. The only complaint was the food quality; it was very poor and we had to que to be seated for dinner and breakfast for a while! On the very first night, as we did not arrive the hotel from the airport till 9:30pm, the hotel waited for everyone so that we could all have something to eat, which we thought was a very nice gesture by the hotel. After the 2nd dinner, we gave up and ate out all the time. Again, because of the deal we paid for last minute booking, we did not mind eating out every night for the rest of the holiday. We spoke to 3 other couples by chance who were staying there, they also complained about food quality and decided to stop eating at the hotel. The waiter service was very good though...

The hotel also has a very good sized pool in the back with a lots of sun loungers. We didn't use the pool as we were out every day but it seemed that there were always plenty of sun loungers.

The bottom line is that if you are not fussy about food, the hotel offers you a good location, clean and tidy accommodation and decent facilities such as swimming pool. There is also a very nice view from the restaurant (but so as many other hotels ...).
