Firstly - the location is perfect. Overlooking Sorrento and looking straight at Mount Vesuvius. We stayed in room 61 which (I believe) had the best views we could have asked for. As it was out of town, there were a few options only. Public transport which was quite good. The hotel sold tickets in reception and they were 1 Euro for an hours journey, or there was a shuttle bus which at certain times of the day left every 20 minutes. It might mean you have a little planning to do, but a minor inconvenience I thought.
The hotel itself was lovely, the decor was nice and the reception staff were friendly, and as far as i'm aware, this is a family run hotel, and it showed in the nice atmosphere. The rooms weren't massive, but they were enough for us, and our balcony was nice. The waiting staff were excellent. I'm not a coffee drinker but the girlfriend appreciated the excellent and generous pot of coffee offered every morning. They were chatty and friendly, and never seemed to get stressed.
The place was very clean and I found it quite comfortable. I didn't use the pool at all as we were sightseeing, but I did go onto the terrace a few times and it's perfect if you're looking a place to sun yourself.
The only drawback to me was the fact we had to share a dinning table. Luckily, the English couple we were sat with were lovely people and the waiting staff showed us an extension that was being bulit so this problem wouldn't arise in the future.
I have to say, I thought this place was well above average for the price we paid - and the dinning arrangements were the only reason why I (harshly) didn't rate the hotel excellent.
