I have just returned from visiting the Hotel Continental (11th - 18th September 2009).
This hotel is located in a quiet location in front of a small grassed square mainly frequented by visitors, locals, dog walkers and in the evening teenagers (not the threatening variety). It is some 50 yards from the cliff edge with excellent views accross the Bay of Naples. The main centre of Sorrento is about 10 minutes gentle stroll from the hotel. It is staff that make a hotel and this hotel seems to have excellent ones.
I found reception, cleaning and waiting staff friendly and approachable.
My wife and I stopped on a half board basis and although the fruit juice seems to be a little weak with our breakfast there was plenty to eat although not fancy.
The evening meals were excellent although the service could be a little slow on occaisions, I am told that the hotel have had to lay off some four waiters and chefs when things were a little slow at the hotel eralier in the season.
The rooms were clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable. Our room (213) overlooked the school next door to the hotel but appart from builders starting at 0730 in the morning it was not a problem. The building next door to the school had a guard dog at the weekend which was a bit noisy.
This hotel in my view is in a ideal location, just far enough from the town centre to be quiet but easy to get to when you want to stroll amongst the shops of which there are plenty and a lovely walk to the Marina Grande to eat and watch the local fishermen going about their trade. I shall return to the hotel.
