We have recently celebrated the first part of our honeymoon at the Hotel Belair in Sorrento. The hotel was lovely and all the staff are extremely personable and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We were staying in a Junior Suite and were welcomed with a complimentary bottle of Champagne when we checked into our rooms on the first night. The suite itself was very spacious comprising of a large bathroom, sitting room with couch and then a large bedroom. The room had ample storage space with three fairly large wardrobes and an abundance of drawers to use. There is also a kettle with teas and coffees replenished daily, a mini bar fridge, safe, free WiFi and widescreen TV. The décor of the rooms is done in what I'd class as a traditional Italian style with old furnishings and lots of character. The one downside which I found in the whole room was that there was only 1 plug socket which you could use to charge up your electrical devices but we soon got around this. One of the highlights of the room has got to be the amazing views from the balcony looking directly out over Mt Vesuvius and to the side into Sorrento. The balconies are fairly large with both comfy lounger type and normal table chairs to chose from.
Away from the room and the hotel décor continues in the same style. The restaurant was always so quiet despite the fact we were staying in peak season and we always got a seat out on the terrace to eat overlooking the fantastic views. The food at both breakfast and dinner was really high quality. Breakfast being serve yourself with breads, meat, cheese etc although you could request bacon and eggs from the waiters too. Dinner most nights was sit down meal with 5 starters and 5 main courses to choose from a wide variety of dishes. Every night was different during our stay and we both found something we liked each time. All of the restaurant staff gave a fantastic service but in particular the head waiter Michele deserves special praise for his extremely friendly and wonderful manner.
The hotel is approximately a 10 minute walk away up the hills from Sorrento. For us this was great as we were not actually too keen on the hustle and bustle down in the town so to be on the outskirts taking in the views in the beautiful peace was perfect.
We were staying with Thomson and although the excursions were rather on the expensive side we went on 5 of these during our 11 day stay and can highly recommend the 4x4 up Vesuvius and the trips to Pompeii, Herculaneum and even Rome. Our Thomson rep Ali was great as well and very knowledgeable of the area and friendly whenever we saw her around the hotel, very much in keeping with the rest of the Belair staff.
If we were ever to return to Sorrento I certainly wouldn't hesitate in picking the Hotel Belair as our place to stay
