As a single, female traveller, first time alone in Europe, I was understandably nervous. I need not have worried though. All the staff at the hotel looked after me and made me so welcome, it felt as though I was a long lost daughter.
The room was lovely and kept spotless, as was the whole hotel, the front desk staff and bell staff were courteous and so helpful and the waiters and bar staff were a joy to meet again every mealtime and evening.
The hotel is, as stated, 10 mins walk from the town which is lovely, and about 15 mins from the port and railway station, both of which can get you anywhere you want to go. Return trainride to Pompeii, Herculaneum etc approx 4 euros.
If you are a lone female, take a bit of care. It is not usual to see lone ladies and you will attract a bit of attention, which can be most flattering, but might require a polite but firm 'thanks but NO thanks' and you will be left alone then.
A warning re Naples airport going home.....we had to go through a little passport control to get to the departure gate. Get through with time to spare! A huge queue formed which I joined about 3/4 hour before the flight departed, it wasn't enough time. I wasn't the last one through by any means but every british flight was late having to wait for people stuck in the queue....pass it on!
Thank you, all at the Bristol, for making my hoiday a memorable one. The never ending courteousness, help and smiles were so refreshing. You could teach some others in Europe a thing or two........
