“Beautiful hotel and grounds, short walk to downtown”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

This is such a beautiful and we'll kept hotel. The entryway is bright and we'll decorated. The staff are very friendly. We were initially given a premium room with an ocean view. However, since it was raining, the ceiling leaked as we first entered our room. So, they upgraded us to this beautiful seaside suite with a massive room and bathroom. The room had central air and was easy to access the main part of the hotel. The bed is a very comfortable king which is hard to find. We did pay for parking but it was nice that the hotel had their own lot which was protected. The breakfast in the morning was a lovely display in their main dining room. The waiters are wearing traditional white coats and there is a great selection of food. This is not a roll out of bed and start eating kind of place, FYI. The people that wore flip flops and jogging shorts definitely stood out. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Spend a little extra money and get the premium rooms with a view.

Stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed the most amazing views, beautiful food (including buffet breakfast) and wonderful staff. Be careful not to book a room on the road side as it's very noisy! Reception are all too happy to help with any question and always go above and beyond

Had three days on the coast. Very nice property. Walking distance to main square. Helpful staff and amazing views of the Naples bay. Bar is a little stuffy, but the end of our days, we just wanted to collapse in the room. Nice full breakfast included. Rooms are typical European size. Our superior suite would be considered a standard room in the US, but the view more than made up for it. Would definitely go there again!

A beautiful hotel just over 5 minutes walk from the centre of Sorrento. The hotel is situated on the cliff edge which gives stunning views over Sorrento town and Vesuvius. Hotel rooms and the surrounding hotel are tastefully decorated in a classic design. Bedrooms and bathrooms are spotless, double rooms have a super king size bed and large flat screen T.V. which includes several English channels. The high quality bed linen was changed every 3 days and towels were changed daily. There is also a fully stocked mini fridge with beers, spirits, wine and soft drinks. There is also free Wi-Fi for the duration of your stay.
The grounds surrounding the hotel are beautifully maintained and include lemon trees. The hotel pool, bar and terrace were also well maintained. There is a lift down to the bathing platform although this was closed during our stay (opens in May).
Breakfast at the hotel was excellent. Breakfast is self service and included fresh fruits, yoghurts, cheeses, meats, bacon, eggs, sautéed potatoes, toast and a large selection of pastries. There was a good selection of tea’s and coffee in addition to fresh fruit juices. The dining room is very elegant and has magnificent views out to sea and overlooking Vesuvius. The waiters are very attentive and if there is something you want that isn’t on display they will get it for you. The evening meal was excellent and exceptionally good value for money, with a good selection on offer.
I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, its location, rooms, décor and more importantly all the staff who work there were attentive, polite and nothing was too much trouble. Out of interest I clicked on some of the bad reviews that have been posted on TA as I was amazed that there could be a bad review on this hotel. Please do not believe any of the negative reviews this hotel has posted against it as they are simply not a true reflection of the hotel, the Excellent/Terrible ratio speaks for itself and any negative reviews are totally unfair in my opinion.
This is an amazing hotel in a fabulous location with outstanding staff and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor have the best views and if it states garden view you'll also have a sea v...

This hotel is not near the port at all, we had a struggle up the hill with our bags. However it is useful for the bus and train station. It is a little walk into the main square, but not far. The staff were helpful, and the little balcony from our room was lovely. There is a lift down to a beach area, but it wasn't open in April.

My wife and I chose this hotel as the base for our honeymoon in Sorrento, largely as a result of positive reviews. It is simply wonderful! I'd arranged a few surprises for my wife in advance, and these were excellently handled by reception, so that we had roses and champagne in our room on arrival. The hotel is beautiful throughout and simply exudes old-school class and charm. Reception staff were well-informed and helpful at all times and the restaurant staff were an absolute delight: charming and helpful in equal measure. The grounds are extensive and immaculate, with views across the bay to Vesuvius. Our room was luxurious and very well-equipped: paying a wee bit extra for a sea (and volcano) view was very worthwhile. All-in-all, absolutely perfect. Very, very highly recommended.

Beautifully quaint little hotel perched on the Bay of Naples. Stunning gardens, excellent service, and impeccably clean. Elegant but not stuffy, the staff are warm, friendly, and accommodatingly helpful. It is a bit of a (lovely) walk to the main areas of Sorrento, but that will just allow you to feel less guilty about the large amount of gelato you have consumed. One caveat: there is a soccer field behind the hotel where they do play games...with music and announcements quite loudly blaring. This side of the hotel (over the front doors) you do not want--you will hear it no matter where you are, but overlooking the field has got to be so much worse!! Pay a bit extra for the sea view rooms, it is what you came for, and will not disappoint!!
