“Wonderful setting looking over the Bay of Naples”
Reviewed 26 October 2009

Spent the penultimate week in October at this hotel, our first time based here but third time in Sorrento.
The staff are friendly and helpful, the food's good, the rooms are clean, but best of all is the view over the water towards Vesuvius. We had a fourth floor room with balcony (more of a terrace really). Because of its location at one end of the Marina Grande it's very quiet and peaceful. A bit of a trek to Sorrento centre but no problem if you enjoy walking. And last but not least, it's at the cheaper end of the market.

I stayed 4 days at Admiral and it was a nice experience. Location is very quiet and you can get to the central station (train and bus) of Sorrento by bus from a stop near the hotel.

My wife and I have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Hotel Admiral in Sorrento which we found excellent and good value for what we paid.
Prior to going, we had read some very mixed reviews on this hotel and decided to have a very open mind and decide for ourselves on arrival.
I am pleased we did so for we found the hotel staff friendly and helpful, the bedrooms comfortable and clean, the public areas ideal for relaxing and the quality of food and presentation for a three star hotel above reproach.
Yes, the hotel is not the most accessible but if two 65 year olds can manage the walk to the town centre several times each day then I don't see a problem.
The huge bonus was the unrestricted views from the hotel across the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius and the coming and going of the shipping into Sorrento.
So I would urge you to give this place a try

I have left the hotel a few weeks ago and was upset to go,i have to say its been the best experiance of a stay i have had ever.The hotel is in a beautifal quaint locals marina.The hotel its self sits proudly at the end out the was and has splendid views.
The hotel is incrediable welcoming and you get a real sence of home on arrival.
The girls at reception,Nardia,Geoge and Subrina are all excellent at there jobs and well presentsed(although i cant help but think long neck scarfs would be more complementling specially in the heat).The bar duo are wonderful,i pleasent young lad then theres mr bond of course!who has to be one of the most lovely gentleman i have ever met,so funny yet proffessional and extremely hard working-there cocktails are deliciouse!Resturante is deadley though-do expect to come off those diets that us ladies pride ourselves for to gain extra pounds!theres a wide range of food to die for,the garlour night is a feast and i could not thought it.Staff are fab,the two young lads are adorable and the other waiters are spot on,Then the Head waiter Antonio,very charming and humble!
The room was lovely and so so clean,with the maids greeting us everyday it was perfect!The Entertainment is quirky and George does infact have a huge... bumbag that goes everywhere with him!
Thomsons is always a company i go with nut i can honestly say i havnt come across such a spectacular rep as there was in the hotel!Lindsay was attentive and funny aswell as being caring a well organised,we went on her wine tasting evening and we had a bull!a real credit to thomsons is lindsay and she will be sadley missed i expect by the staff when she goes in a few weeks!
o,theres one person i almost missed...well no i wanted to leave him till last and thats the hotel manager Guiseppe-such a lovely gentleman-so helpful and so hansome!He really went out his way to assist when we needed him and was in every day mingling with all the guests-a fine gentleman!
I am a fond traveller to italy but i can never get enough of pompeii and herculanium,but the trip to ischia is extremley good aswell!The food is fab and Sorrento is spectacular to visit and of course i wouldnt stay in any other place but the Admiral!

Almost forgot-i do believe its 007 mr bonds the barmans birthday any day now-HAPPY BIRTHDAY FAFFALINA xx

What a little gem of a hotel, having looked at reviews for this hotel we booked with Portland, so glad we did, perfect location, excellent staff , superb rooms, sea views a must, we had a top floor room looking over Vesuvious, amazing. The food was very good, always lots of choice beautifully presented. The harbour is so unspoilt not at all touristy we found lots of Americans eating down there and they loved it.
If you want to visit Pompeii , Herculaneum etc ( if you are over 65 take your passports & its free entry) don't book the expensive excursions, we did everything by bus or train, easy to get about & cheap. We also went to Amalfi and Positano both stunning places by bus on the Amalfi drive. Loved everything about this holiday.

Loved the hotel and can confirm what most reviewers are saying the staff are great. The food was really good and I didnt have a bad meal.

The walk up the hill is a little off putting but worth it.

Worth a visit.

We cannot fault the staff or hotel, we had an absolutely fabulous time here between 20.09.09 and 24.09.09. We booked directly with the hotel over the internet and this was definitely cheaper than booking through a tour operator (We saved over £300 arranging flights, transfers and the hotel ourselves and also had an extra night into the bargain - you can book airport transfers through the hotel and this was the most reasonable rate that we found).

The staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for you, many thanks Giorgia and Andreas for your excellent service!!!
