The combination of location, helpful staff and clean rooms makes this an ideal base for a stay in Sorrento. It is an easy 2 minute stroll into the main square of Sorrento and from there you can explore the side streets. Most of the shops are very similar-limoncello, scarves and lemon soap- but still interesting. Plenty of cafes where you can sit and people watch. It is only a short walk to the station and bus stop for visits to Pompei, Amalfi and Naples, however I would not recommend Naples.
We were greeted by name when we arrived and all the reception staff were friendly and helpful. We were given a map on arrival and a useful timetable of train, bus and ferry times - not always accurate but we did visit at the end of the season so touristy things were slowing down. When the water in our bathroom failed to appear two members of staff responded immediately, solved the problem and were very apologetic.
The weather was very kind to us and we were able to eat breakfast in the pretty, well maintained garden. One of my best memories is eating fruit straight from the trees in the garden. The breakfast was a good selection buffet style and the waiters were friendly and welcoming.
The room was very clean and comfortable. If I am very picky I would like to see 3 changes/ additions 1. A bedside clock. 2. hand lotion in the bathroom. 3. The shower door opening the other way! It was difficult to turn the shower on and avoid the water before it had reached a reasonable temperature. But that is me being ultra picky!
