What can I say, our stay with the Grand Hotel Royal was all and more than we expected. The hotel was immaculate, the staff friendly and polite, and our sea view room excellent. We were there on a bed and breakfast basis so didn't sample the evening meals, but the breakfasts were great, catering for all nationalities and thanks especially to Patrizia for her lovely eggs and omelettes, cooked on demand. I always had to end my breakfast with a cake or fruit tart which were delicious (not something I do at home).
If I was really pushed to criticise something it would be our bathroom which could do with an update but having said that the shower was powerful and everything worked so no complaints really.
The location of the hotel was spot on too, with the train and bus station about five minutes walk and the main square in Sorrento about the same distance. Would urge anyone going to Pompeii or Herculaneum to catch a train as it's so easy and cheap and a bit of an adventure.
To sum up, we would not hesitate to return to the Grand Hotel Royal as it's one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Oh, and we must mention the gentleman on reception who without fail handed us our key without asking the number of our room. How's that for personal service!
