This was a lovely B&B, nicely decorated, light and airy and in a great location on the main square in Sorrento. I stayed in the deluxe room with two friends. The room sleeps three and is more than large enough so you don’t feel like you’re all getting on top of one another but the single sofa bed is not the most comfortable and has a very hard mattress, so consider yourself duly warned if you draw the short straw and have to sleep on it! Other than that though, our room was delightful. It was bright and light, with a private terrace, a kitchenette and a large bathroom. The room came with all the small things you need to make your stay cosy, such as toiletries, plenty of towels, a nice robe and slippers for each guest, a powerful hairdryer, plus a few extras such as a fridge in the kitchenette, cutlery and crockery.
The breakfast at the B&B was great, made by the cook Simona (who also offers cookery lessons, but unfortunately we ran out of time to take her up on this). You can start your day with eggs, a selection of breads and pastries, fruit, yogurt, cake, biscuits, cheese and a few other yummy things.
Because this is a B&B and not a hotel, there aren't the facilities you might get in a hotel, such as room service or computers in the lobby for guests to use, but there is fee wifi, so take your ipad or smartphone and you're sorted. The location of the Jannuzzi is great too. It's on the main square in Sorrento, walking distance from the pier, the train and bus stations and all of the restaurants. It's located above a bar, which didn't bother me, although one of my friends was woken up once or twice by the noise from the bar at night.
The biggest downside is that the reception staff aren't overly friendly. I mean they're polite, but they don't go out of their way to help you with directions or local information, and often the info they did give us was incorrect! Don't let that put you off though, the cleaning staff and the cook are all lovely and it's a great place to stay, besides, between the wifi and a local guide book, you can more or less find out everything you need to know yourself.
