We spent a week half-board in the hotel which was excellent. Room exceeded expectations with huge balcony and although on the first floor was far enough back from the road with double glazing for us not to hear the traffic. The view over Bay of Naples and Mt Vesuvius was stunning and with constant sky changes and ferry movements there was always something new to look at.
The pool on the roof and the facilities around it great and although it was end of April I enjoyed a few swims (a hardy Scot!). Small but newly equipped cardio exercise room did not seem to be well used!
Food was typically Mediterranean with a number of local dishes to sample. Breakfast was a surprise as most mornings there was egg & bacon or sausage as an option.
All staff were extremely helpful & courteous and as one would expect with the oldest established hotel in Sorrento (1856) full of character even although it underwent a comprehensive refurbishment on 2012.
Leaving some of the rock face as a feature in the staircase and lift area reminds us engineers how clever they are in the Almalfi coast at building on almost vertical cliffs and a vert nice touch.
Easy walk into Sorrento town and the Marina for ferries to Capri, train to Pompeii, Mt Vesuvius & Naples.
We will stay at the hotel again on our next visit to the area.
