We have just returned from a very enjoyable week at Hotel Alpha. We would probably rate this as a 3 - 4 star hotel but with 5 star staff! This is what really makes this hotel. We were received a warm welcome at reception when we arrived and were always greeted with smiles at the bar or in the restaurant. The reception staff were always happy to provide travel advice and no query was too much trouble to answer.
The hotel was very clean and our panoramic room was comfortable with lovely views of the bay and the spectacular sunsets. On the downside however, the room, although well equipped was in need of a smarten-up. This was especially the case in the bathroom where we had a whirlpool bath which we did not use other than for showers as the condition of the tiling made it look somewhat less than appealing. The green bathroom ceiling created a very strange light in there too. It appeared that a number of rooms on the other side of the hotel had been redecorated with a gentler colour scheme and the floors re-tiled so perhaps this is an ongoing process. The air conditioning did struggle a bit and got rather noisy at about 5am.
The pool area and garden was pleasant but some of the furniture could do with replacing. We did not have any trouble getting somewhere to sit and if required, it was nice to get shade from the fruit trees which surround the pool. The pool bar certainly came in handy for drinks or ice creams.
We were staying on a bed and breakfast basis but ate in the hotel twice. The food was very good and beautifully presented and of course the service was excellent. Lots of choice at breakfast and lovely to sit and eat it on the terrace.
We liked the location and found using public transport even easier than anticipated. it is just a short walk to the station and a bus runs from outside the hotel to the centre of Sorrento but check the timetable first as it is a bit infrequent. We had no worries about using the trains late in the evening as there are so many people doing the same. The last train from Sorrento to Sant' Agnello leaves at 11.26 pm so we spent several evenings in Sorrento having dinner and enjoying the buzz. Staying in Sorrento itself would probably have been too noisy for us and it was good to return to the relative peace of the hotel.
We had a lovely holiday, were stunned by the beauty of the region and thank all at Hotel Alpha for a very pleasant stay.
