“Captivating and perfect!”
Reviewed 28 July 2009

The Hotel La Vue d'Or was absolutely amazing. We had such a wonderful time there--the hotel is beautiful inside and out. The lobby is open & airy, the pool is sparkling, the solarium is private and relaxing, the breakfast is terrific, the shuttle is convenient and reliable. We had the most incredible room (we got upgraded to a family suite) with a balcony and a panoramic view of the sea, Vesuvius, and hillsides. And we cannot speak highly enough of the staff. We had a family emergency back home that cut our trip short, and the staff was very concerned & sympathetic, and they bent over backwards trying to help us get the next flight out of Rome.

Loved this hotel. There was a shuttle bus that took us from the hotel into Sorrento, which took 15 minutes. It has a local bus that stops outside with links to Sorrento and in the other direction to positano and amalfi etc, which were so worth a visit. The hotel was up in the Sorrento hills and had the most amazing views over Sorrento, bay of Naples and Vesuvius in the distance. The view was really pretty and green and the sea also in the distance. The hotel had a nice pool, a good breakfast and the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Wasnt massivley impressed with Sorrento itself, as it is very touristy and busy so was glad to be up in the hills in the peace and quiet (until the school holidays started in the last 2 days of our holiday, then things changed slightly!) Also to add, there is a lovely restaurant just down the hill that had excellent food and probably the best service we have ever come across. One of the restaurant's staff picked us up from the hotel then dropped us off again, as the winding road is rather dangerous at night. The seafood was out of this world and the view with an amazing sunset made it a really romantic setting for a lovely evening.

We stayed at La Vue D'or for a week in June and had a lovely time. Although the hotel was located about a 15 min drive from Sorrento itself it wasn't a problem as the hotel ran a free courtesy bus for most of the day. The first leaving fairly early in the morning and the last leaving Sorrento at 11.30pm. Although there was a break during the day the local Sita service bus ran regularly and stopped outside the hotel (2 euros for a one way ticket or 6 euros for a full day ticket that could be bought from the hotel reception).

Our room was clean and comfortable and the view was breathtaking. We could see over the bay of Naples to Vesuvius in the background from our balcony. The hotel in general was clean and the pool area was well kept.

We stayed on a half board basis. Breakfast was continental but there was plenty of choice. The evening meals were also nice. I was worried that being a vegetarian I would have problems but if there was nothing on the menu for me they would always make me something special.

We chose not to do the Thomas Cook excursions as it was easy to get to most of the places ourselves on the bus or train for a lot less money. We went to Pompeii, Herculaneum, Amalfi/Ravello at a fraction of the cost. We also took the boat to Capri one day which only took 20 minutes.

I would really like to stay here again one day.

We planned and booked our trip to Italy independently and had high hopes for our holiday, and It is safe to say that Hotel La Vue D’Or in Sorrento did not disappoint.
We had booked five days of our holiday here but ended up staying for ten. From the moment we arrived in Sorrento we were relaxed. The hotel is spotless from top to bottom, the views are fantastic and the service is with a smile and everyone’s very friendly and helpful. We wanted a peaceful holiday away from the noise of London and we certainly got it here, all you can hear are the birds singing.
There are plenty of space to lay in the sun and we always had a lounger to use.
We had our evening meal at the hotel a few times during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. The breakfasts are very good with plenty of choice which will accommodate everyone’s tastes.
Although the hotel is a 15 minute drive from up in the hills from Sorrento, they have a bus that runs almost every hour from 08:30 until 23:30. This is a fantastic service and certainly helps save quite a few pounds on taxi’s which are not cheap.
Sorrento is the perfect place to relax, enjoy good food at a reasonable price, sight see things like Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius, the Amalfi coast and just enjoy the Italian life style.
We will be returning to Sorrento and would not hesitate to book into the Hotel La Vue D’or again.

We spent 2 weeks here following a good deal of research via Trip Advisor. All the previous reviews are pretty accurate. The hotel is way out of Sorrento, nestled in the hills near St Agata. There is great hotel bus which mostly operates hourly except for siesta time when there is a big gap to get back to hotel between 12.30 and 17.30. The local bus drops you at the hotel and is a half hourly service. Time tables are available at the hotel and the Foreigners Club which is a good bar/restaurant with the best views over the bay and reasonable prices. The train and bus station are situated together in Sorrento and are easy to negotiate to get to Pompei etc. Don't do the Thomson trips unless you want to get ripped off. All the places that they sell trips for are EASILY obtainable yourself. The ferry over to Capri takes 20 minutes and they sail back and forth all day. Once over there go up the funicular line to the next level and then sit in a bar, settle down and do some serious people watching ! Designer people, designer shops, designer prices but gives you a taste of the good life and where you will go when you win the lottery! (if only). You can then get the bus to Anacapri and go on the chair lift. This is a must!. Fantastic views. The hotel itself is nice, the staff more than make up for any downfalls. The two waiters Bartolo and Domenico are truly magic and are like a comedy act. All the staff are great and nothing is any trouble. Our room was clean and basic, and air conditioning was working. Fan in bathroom wasn't and shower tray leaked a bit but just a minor moan. Ladies don't take a hairdryer because the hotel dryers are really powerful 1800 watts. Saves in baggage! The breakfasts were good, it is all continental and plenty of it. We were half board and dinners were mostly okay, it was a bit repetative if you are there for 2 weeks but they were fine. There is no entertainment or anything in the hotel in the evenings but we found that because it is a small hotel, people got chatting on the terrace and had a good laugh together, swapping ideas about where to go etc. The pool is fine and the area clean and well kept.
Initially when we were getting dropped off by the Thomson bus and I saw how far away from Sorrento the hotel was I thought we had made a mistake coming to it, but actually it is a great spot with wonderful views over the Bay of Naples and to Vesuvius and of course we saw some fantastic sunsets every night. So all in all I would recommend this hotel if you want a nice quiet place to return to after a busy day gallavanting around the area. The last hotel bus is at 11.30 but for any late night partygoers there are late night service buses. A taxi up from the town was approx 24 euros. Italy appeared to be much more expensive this year and we spent a lot on drinks etc. Beer between 5-7 euros and check out cover charges before you venture into any bars etc. Some places charge 4 euros a person and thats before you have even had a drink!

La Vue d'Or is a gem, in my opinion. We stayed there for two nights in May, 2009 and really enjoyed it. The views from our room were spectacular and the shuttle bus into Sorrento was convenient and easy and certainly saved us driving down the hill and trying to find parking. The staff could not have been more helpful and the service was great. The only two glitches (both minor) were that the shower in our bathroom seemed to spray water all over the floor when we used it and one of the meals I had (veal in a lemon cream sauce) wasn't very good. The other meals were fine though and I cannot wait to return for another visit.

We are a middle aged couple from Ireland and this hotel exceeded our expectations - the hotel foyer, the friendliness of the staff, view from the hotel, the hotel room, the pool area. The value for money was excellent. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quiet location but still able to get into Sorrento thanks to the complimentary bus.
