Reviewed 28 October 2012

Having just returned from 5 days at the Belair I had to comment & say that this hotel completely lives up to expectations. I would highly recommend and will hope to return. I wouldn't have wished to stay anywhere else as the hotel really made the holiday; Our first trip to Sorrento. Breakfast is lovely; prosecco, cafe latte, poached eggs (request from your waiter) and a buffet of tempting nibbles that varies a little daily. The room we had was perfect; clean and spacious balcony with stunning view. The poolside was great for a bit of sun in the morning & the bar was relaxed but elegant for evening drinks. Lunch on the balcony was delicious, though we preferred dining in town in the evening. Recommend booking taxi's through the hotel when necessary but enjoyed the walk into town (despite the heights!) every evening. The staff were excellent, the trimmings are all top notch and the hotel is one of my favourites. Ideally located for visiting the sights of this area (Capri, Positano, Pompeii etc) or for just relaxing and staying local. Weather was excellent too. Couldn't ask for more.

Just returned from a 9 day stay at the Hotel Belair for our 25th anniversary. As others have said it is a very romantic place to stay. The rooms, we had a suite, were extremely large and well decorated, the view from our large balcony was amazing of the harbor and the location on the cliffs of Sorrento provide breath taking views. However what makes the hotel special is the attention you get from the staff. The front desk staff of Monica, Francesco and GianLuca were terrific taking care of all our requests for dining recommendations, group tours and private tours and small items to make our stay special. The dining room staff under the direction of Michele was attentive and the food was very good. The hotel provided many memories for this special time.

We stayed at Hotel Belair for our 40th wedding Anniversary October 20012. Everything was perfect, our room, balcony, views, friendly staff, pool etc. Highlights were buckfiz with a delicious breakfast sat on restaurant balcony in sunshine and lovely romantic themed evening meal listening to a Tenor singing. We have already recommended the hotel to friends.

Room Tip: I think all rooms have a balcony with sea views

Stayed here 3 nights at the end of our 8 day tour of Italy. It was the best part of our trip. We were exhausted and this was the perfect end of tour. Great location, we did do Capri and Pompei while staying here. Easy walk into town, or down to beach. Breakfast was superb! Rooms were clean and quiet. Free wireless. Wish the pool was heated, as we were there in October, and the water was a lil to chilly for me! Would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for room w/balcony.

First trip with our family friends, they have stayed at the belair many times, first time for my wife and I. Lovely hotel, good rooms, (go for one with a terrace) although not private the added space to relax and take in the views is well worth it.

we had misrable weather hand ate out each evening. Last night we asked the hotel if we could have something light and they could be more helpfull, we left feeling guilty we hadn't frequented the restruant every night, excellent food, service and great value!

Lifts with minus numbers takes a bit of getting used too!

Room Tip: all rooms are quiet as they are below the raod and all face the sea, but if budget allows get a terr...

A big thank you to all the staff for a wonderful stay, in particular all the restaraunt and kitchen staff for tending to my wifes gluten free vegetarian requests.I think most of the other reviews say it all about the views, rooms and location so all I will say is go and experience it for yourself you will not be disappointed.

We have just returned from our holiday in Sorrento where we stayed at Hotel Belair for 8 nights. This hotel met or exceeded our expectations from the start. The price, the service, the location and the intangibles combined to make our long overdue vacation exceptional.

The view is indeed amazing. The countless photos here simply will never convey reality. I believe that every room has just about the same panorama of Sorrento and Marina Grande with Vesuvio presiding, as alway, over it all. We stayed in room 307 which was a fine Junior Suite. Our traveling companions were in 301 which, while a larger suite by a small margin, did have a primary view of the hotel pool. I believe that just about any room or suite at Belair will meet your expectations. Spotlessly clean, well stocked and above all comfortable!

We only dined at the hotel restaurant once and, while a bit formal with presentation for our tastes, the meal was good and the service very attentive by Euopean standards. Try the risotto and the ravioli, you won't go wrong. We booked Bed & Breakfast and the morning "spread" was adequate if repetitive. My wife and I did appreciate the Mimosa bar that was made available each morning and the various breads, fresh fruits, meats and cheeses along with cooked to order eggs never left us hungry as we started our day's adventures.

While Belair is located some distance from the main square (Piazza Tasso), the walk was never unbearable and we could be in Tasso in 10 to 15 minutes at the most. Sorrento is a very walkable city and we never missed having our own car during our stay. Should you choose (as we did several evenings) to walk all the way down to Marina Grande for an evening meal by the water, you may decide hiring a cab to bring you back up to Belair is worth the 20 euro we paid twice. Maybe it was the wine, maybe it was the delicious meals we enjoyed or maybe it was just that we were on vacation afterall but that seemed a small price to pay!

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, despite my very weak attempts at Italian. Mario, Monica, Francesco: Grazie mille! Your advice never steered us wrong.

Some minor issues that perhaps prevent me from a "five circle" rating start with an overall "loud" hotel. Everything is tile and stone and marble so when housekeeping starts at 8:00 each day there is really no way for even a heavy sleeper to, well, sleep. The necessary work of the housekeepers really echos throughout the hallways and rooms so if you wanted to sleep in it would be difficult.

The rooms, while kept spotlessly clean throughout our stay, were a bit tired and some of the furniture was a bit worn out. Also, if you are expecting a true "king" bed you will probably be a bit disappointed that it is two twins pushed together. I found myself sleeping "in the crack" quite often. Not a huge deal but still...

All in all we were very pleased with our choice of Hotel Belair and would not hesitate to recommend it to just about anyone. I am sure one could spend quite a bit more and probably get closer to city center and/or the sea but I seriously doubt Hotel Belair would disappoint most any traveler.

Safe travels and PEACE

Room Tip: spring for a Junior Suite if you can. The extra space and larger balconies make the choice an easy o...
