Well what a find this was. A small hotel in Sant Agnello which is next door to Sorrento and a 25 minutes walk to the centre. It is well served by the local bus service and in particular the train station is only 5 minutes away and a cheap and frequent service takes you into Sorrento day or night.
The food in the Hotel was excellent. The breakfast was a buffet with plenty of choice but the main event is the evening dinner. A different menu every night with a wide choice served at your table by the extremely friendly waiters. The best recomendation I can give is that although we had booked half board, we had planned to go out for dinner on a couple of nights in the Trattoria's of Sorrento, but the food was that good in the Hotel we did not want to miss out and ate there every night. There is a good choice of wines at prices ranging from 12 euros a bottle to 50 euros, but we chose a couple of perfectly drinkable reds at around 15 euros each. There are a number of small friendly bars in Sant Agnello so a trip every night into Sorrento was not necessary. Other people stayed in the Hotel to enjoy the entertainment that they laid on some nights. The bedrooms were spacious and very clean and tidy. Ours overlooked the mountains inland but was away from the road so much quiter (except the sounds of the cockerel every morning!). The swimming pool is adequate size and the sun shines all day on it until late afternoon.
The Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, giving tips on trips etc and selling tickets for the train and buses. We spent a day by taking the train to Sorrento then the bus to Positano and travelled back to Sorrento by boat, total cost 18 euros each. we also visited Pompeii by train which was very cheap. Don't bother with the tour operator trips as they are a rip off and it is much better to plan your own. We prferred the location way from the bustle of Sorrento and allowed us to explore the genuine non tourist areas of italy particulalry Piano di Sorrento and S'Agnello where we stayed. Would genuinely recommend this Hotel to everyone.
