Overall this is a great place to stay. Once you arrive, you realise why the ratings are so high- it has the most spectacular views over Sorrento. The common areas of the hotel such as the reception area, bar and restaurant are all ofthe highest standard and there's a great outdoor terrace and (unheated) outdoor pool with another bar. Although the main road to the top of the hill skirts the terrace and pool area, the noise isn't too much of a problem. We got upgraded to a superior room and it was very clean and well-equipped although like many Italian 4-star hotels, on the small side. Again, great views over the Bay of Naples. Staff were very friendly and most spoke good English but the restaurant was a bit of a let down. Breakfast staff (mainly elderly men) were friendly but not at all attentive- so it took a very long time to get tea or coffee or to order sides and once or twice the order didn't come. The quality of breakfast (like many hotels in this region) was also well below par- poor coffee, juice and selection of cold foods. However, these were minor issues given the wider benefits of staying in this hotel. A free shuttle bus runs from the town on an hourly basis (saving the £30 or so taxi fare) but beware the three hour gap mid-day. Alternatively there's a very steep but attractive walk down to the coast road- better down than up! I'd definitely stay here again and probably will. There are some decent discounts if booked in advance.
