“Great hotel, great location”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Just back from 5 days at this lovely hotel. Unfortunately we couldn't experience the wonderful terraces or swimming pools due to the rainy weather however every other aspect of the hotel was great. Very friendly and helpful staff, wonderful food with a large selection of choice. Some say expensive but we were on half board so had effectively paid upfront. Everything you could want for breakfast .. a vast selection of hot and cold. The views from the lounge and dining room are stunning.

Easy walk 5 minutes into the town and 10 minutes from the bus / train station.

Even though we did not book the more expensive sea view room, the view over the garden was ok and with the poor weather didn't get chance to sit on the balcony anyway. If it had been better weather, would have lounged on one of the few large open terraces anyway.

Overall, excellent hotel .. hopefully we will return some time when the weather is kinder!

We just returned from a week at the Capodimonte and had a wonderful time. Plus points; lovely decor, clean comfy rooms, friendly and helpful staff, good location and views, super breakfast, amazing pool area (although sadly didn't get to use it because of the rain!!) minus points, if any, restaurant expensive so we didn't bother eating there :) a few people have mentioned the main road in reviews but we didn't have any trouble crossing at all.. just watch out as you would do crossing any road!! ..and remember in Italy they drive on the other side!! I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to people of all ages either for a city break or a sun holiday, I'd love to go back but maybe a bit nearer summer next time :)

Room Tip: We got a 'classic room with internal view balcony' - as we were low down it basically meant...

We arrived start of season. Everything was first class from front door to leaving a week later. Staff were fabulous fun and great with any younger children. We travelled as a couple. Views from restaurant over breakfast WOW!!! Beautiful romantic views from every terrace. Our favourite we dubbed Wisteria Terrace. The food was fabulous, breakfast was awesome particularly. We stayed half board. Only niggle would b cappucinos were pricey, but we found two excellent espresso bars... One just down hill from hotel and bar frisbee by rail station. Pool was cold so did t use but it was clean and inviting. Sorrento is beautiful and a great base for trips to Capri,pompeii etc. transport incredibly easy to use. We can't wait to return next year !! :)

I stayed at this hotel along with my husband and two teenage daughters in April 2012. Although expensive, it is one of the nicest hotels we have been to. The weather on the first day was hot and sunny so we were able to take advantage of the beautiful poolside restaurant overlooking the bay. Unfortunately, it rained for the rest of our stay but we we still able to enjoy the amazing views from the restaurant. The service and quality of food in the restaurant was excellent. We paid extra to have rooms overlooking the sea which was well worth while as the views are wonderful. The standard of decoration throughout the hotel was excellent - everything was recently decorated in a tasteful, traditional style.

Room Tip: Pay extra to reserve a sea view room. The hotel gave us adjoining rooms.

Stayed at the hotel for a friends wedding in April, the weather was inconsistent as one minute it was lovely and sunny then raining hard. To be expected though at this time of year.
The hotel is based slightly out of the main town but it was a five minute walk and you were in the main street. The views from the pool area and dining room were stunning as they look out over the town/bay/Mt Vesuvius. Our room views were nice but slightly obscured by other parts of the hotel complex, luck of the draw perhaps on that one.
Food is really good, wide choice of dishes to suit all. Advice is to double up on starters and have one as a starter and one as a main as they were more exciting at times than sticking to the usual coursing. Breakfast is really good loads of choice, omelettes made to order, hot and cold section, European breakfast element and also tomato sauce ! Fill up as food is expensive wherever you go and if your half board or B&B make the most of it.
Service and all staff we met were helpful and prompt with any requests. Wouldn't say there was too much to entertain kids at the hotel more of a couple/adult vibe.

Things to do when there:

Sorrento - amazing little streets, just wander around and you will stumble across so much. Sit in the main piazza and people watch with a beer in hand.

Bars - Blu water sells massive beers really nice food and also football live !

English Inn - sounds like one to steer clear but nice, great to sit outside having drinks either in their garden area or on the cobbled main street.

Any on the main piazza are nice. Baguettes club/bar is good for music and drinks and it has a pole.....just off the main piazza don't steep stairs. Night before the wedding was spent in there more lively than others we visited.

Capri was a great day out, 30 min ferry over and then a wander around all the boutique shops - window shopping in all reality. Expensive though, €20 a salad do be aware!

Everywhere is expensive €5 a beer, €10 for a sandwich....ect. The hotel charges drinks and food to your room so it can start stacking up!

All in all lovely trip based from a great hotel which is one of theist beautiful I have ever stayed in !

The price we paid for this hotel which included food was exceptionally good. The service was excellent and the communal areas beautiful.

The rooms have good bathrooms with excellent hot water- bath/ shower facilities and clean. However the bed we had was dreadful (I don't suffer from any sleep problems and am not at all fussy. See other reviews if you don't believe) twin beds pushed together and not only that rock hard and very old. The bed linens and were itchy and old fashioned and the pillows useless.

We left our room unoccupied for two nights to stay on Capri and these were the only two nights sleep I had. The other guests seemed to do a lot of clunking about and dragging furniture around which disturbed us all of the time.

I don't think I would do another package holiday as the other guests were more typical 'Brits on tour' which I hate.

The prices here were excellent and the drink costs very very cheap. Don't listen to people who say they were expensive I think it's because of the type of people package holidays attract.

We did our own excursions taking the train to Herculaneum and the boat ourselves to Capri. This was very easy and I can't imagine why people would want to be herded about in groups of coach tours.

Location of hotel excellent, right on he edge of the town which is beautiful and local food/ drinks very cheap and delicious.

Room Tip: Take your own pillows!

We stayed in this amazing hotel in the first week of its 2012 season. It felt soulful and friendly from the minute we arrived and we were wonderfully looked after by staff who clearly care very much about how the guests enjoy the hotel. The location is perfect, only about four minutes' walk into the centre of Sorrento so you can experience the town centre atmosphere but just far enough outside to be able to get away from everything and enjoy the beautiful views across the bay. The reception and restauarant balcony areas are very well kept and there is an entire outdoor area which is shaded by a Wisteria trellis which looks and smells amazing.

We stayed in the top floor of the front section of the hotel and have never spent so much time on a room balcony in our lives. The views have to be seen to be believed. The room was pristinely decorated and furnished to a very high standard with everything in an inlaid wood style fitting in with the famous local craft. Every day started with seeing the sun rise and set from the balcony, and a perfect buffet breakfast with waiting staff in white ties dress. The eggs chef is talented - bespoke omelettes cooked to order in front of you - and the restaurant is set into the cliff side with panoramic views across the bay. We stayed for a week and would happily have stayed on for another. We will be back.

PS there are comments from other reviewers about cost of drinks and evening meals. We thought the prices were about what you would expect from a hotel of this standard but with it only being a few minutes' walk from the town centre we preferred to experience the town centre restaurants, especially L'Abate where Tony and the rest of the staff took such good care of us and fed us with some of the best food we had in Italy.
