Thank you for your kind and positive review.

My warmest regards
The GHEV is a stunning hotel, with great staff and a fabulous location with views over the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius. Having a drink on the terrace at sundown is one of those magical things that will be a lifelong enduring memory; you will pay a reasonable, albeit not excessive for Sorrento, price for that memory. It is an oasis of calm amidst the crowds of Sorrento and you are brilliantly looked after by the very attentive, helpful and interested staff. The grounds and the pool are immaculately kept and offer shade or sun, whichever you prefer. Being slap bang in the middle of Sorrento the hotel is very convenient for looking round the town, getting down to the port to get to Capri, Naples and other destinations (by the hotels own lift from the terrace) and exploring the ruins at Pompeii and Herculaneum. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet and if you are staying on a B&B basis the breakfasts are expansive, authentic and leisurely. If you aren't a footballer, or aren't there for a one-off special occasion, you will almost certainly need to eat outside in the evening but there is an enormous choice of venues to choose from within a 10 minute walk, some of which I have reviewed. I'd go there again, without a doubt.
Thank you for your very nice review.
We are glad that you appreciated our property and services.
We really hope to welcoming you back again at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria!
Amazing location, beautiful gardens, breathtaking view from our balcony over the bay of Naples and the Sorrento yacht and ferry port, wonderful and friendly service from everybody. Great restaurant trying for a Michelin star which they truly deserve. Rita, Giannicolleta, Luigi and their people combine delicious food and beautiful presentation with impeccable service and real warmth. Very nice, well thought out room and great, private balcony.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this beautiful review!
We really hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria - Sorrento
My warmest regards
stayed there for 4 days and almost cancelled the balance of our itinerary to stay there. perfect location, perfect service, perfect accommodation, perfect, perfect, perfect. centrally located in the heart of Sorrento, giving easy access to EVERYTHING. shopping, restaurants to the front, and boats to capri in the rear. walk out the front of the hotel and everything is there. stay inside, the grounds, and you have peace and quiet. beautiful pool, patio bar and a wonderful breakfast buffet.
My husband and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria for a week at the beginning of September as well as having our wedding reception there after a ceremony at Villa Fondi in Piano de Sorrento.
From the very first moment we stepped inside the hotel we felt welcomed and comfortable. Every member of staff seem to know your names and are always very friendly.
We were upgraded to a suit which was beautiful. Very traditional with original wood flooring and two marble bathrooms. We had an extreamly large terrace out into the gardens which was quiet and private. Our rooms were cleaned twice a day, the breakfast could not be faulted (if you have chance to have it ordered to your room -at a price- it is well worth it), the pool and gym are stunning and ultra modern despite the rest of the hotel keeping its 1900's Italian charm which, for ourselves, was litterally perfection.
The location of the hotel couldnt be better, on the main square only a 5minute walk to the train station for naples/pompaii, 2 minutes to the buzzing cobbled streets of sorrento and a private lift down to the boats for Capri. And in sorrento you can only have a central location as taxis are so very expensive.
The Wedding day exceeded any expectations we ever had.
After the ceremony we arrived back to have canapes and drinks on the terrace (a section was cornered off) over looking the bay of naples, the staff were very accommodating with eating times asking if we wanted to put back dinner.
When we finally pulled our selves away from the breath taking views we went into the main resteraunt (exclusive use) which has hand painted ceilings, a grand piano and of course floor to ceiling views of the bay of naples.
The tables were set up with linen, menues, flowers and table plans as we had discussed a couple of days prior to the day which was completly stress free and beautiful (and included in the price per head).
Dinner, obviously, was amazing, and the cake was even better. Service was faultless.
We then enjoyed the pianist out on the terrace and had our first dance, all very worthy of an 1950's romantic movie.
To finish our evening off we went to the pool side bar which was lit up by oil lights and had a DJ playing soulfull cafe del mar music which wasn't too loud as not to disturb other guests, however loud enough to dance to.
All in all our whole stay was completly faultless. The attentivness of the staff and the beautifull preserved grand hotel truely made our special day that little more special.
If you are concidering a reception here, I feel you won't get it better anywhere else. We had 40 guests of all ages and back grounds and every single person was wowed by the place.
As for value, they say you get what you pay for, I feel that we got a lot more.
We are truely greatful.
Thank you very much for your nice review!!

A truly beautiful and elegant hotel right in the center of Sorrento! The hotel is surrounded by a private park and a very short stroll into the main square. The room they hotel upgraded us to was amazing! It was very nicely furnished with a very well appointed bathroom. The highlight however, was the spectacular large terrace with lounges and table and chairs where you can stare at the extraordinary views! The staff is top notch and trained in the old school manner of graciousness. The concierge staff led by Tony is what service used to be and should be, helpful, informative and welcoming, A very grateful thank you to all of them!. The rest of the staff from bar tenders to waiters to housekeeping could not have been better. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here, and the Excelsior Vittoria truly made it memorable!
