This is a lovely place to stay if you visit Sorrento...within walking distance of the main town and with magical views over the bay of Naples.
The staff in the hotel were consistently good, and attentive and the visitors' book was testimony to that. From reception, to restaurant to bedroom cleaning personnel, there was nothing to criticise, and all staff left you with the impression that it was their privilage to cater to your needs
The dining room was situated on the 7th floor and clients were shown to a table by the head waiter. Thankfully there was no 'sharing'of tables unless requesteed and over the week we sat in various locations, often looking out on the bay
Breakfast was a mixture of buffet, and waiter service, with orders taken promptly, and eggs cooked to order and exactly as requested. At no time did we sit at a table that was not completely and perfectly set. The array of fresh fruit changed daily and was delicious, as were the varieties of bread and pastries served each morning. 'Champagne' was always sitting in an ice bucket ready to be mixed for bucks fizz, or taken 'undiluted'...a great start to the day.
Dinner, was a traditional three course Italian meal, waiter served, with a salad buffet to start. While providing good variety, many guests felt it did not match up to the standad of the rest of the hotel, and only when compared to eating in some of the local restaurants, did we realise that this was true. Overall, it was acceptable, but improvements could be made in the quality and choice of menu. Service at all times was immaculate, with the courtesy of staff compensating for a less than perfect dining experience.
Bedrooms were modern, clean, comfortable and well furnished...all of which went practically unnoticed with the spectacular views from every floor.
This hotel would earn its 5 stars, if the dinner each evening was better, and if i a free wifi service was provided to its clients...as many other hotels of inerior standard do.
Without doubt would recommend this hotel....preferrably on a bed and breakfast basis, as there are many excellent restaurants within walking distance.
It mig also worth consideration by management, to istal walk i showers instead, r as well, as abath,wich we fund was slppy andvery narrow at the base.
