We could not have asked for a better hotel for our first holiday to Sorrento. We had the best holiday of our lives. The location of the hotel is excellent- you are just a fifteen minute walk away from the centre of Sorrento. Yes, the road is busy but you will get used to it after a couple of days. We did not hear any noise from the road though. Also, if you don't fancy the walk, the hotel runs a free shuttle bus. When arriving, we were surprised with an upgrade to the Suite Soleil. This holiday was a birthday celebration and I can't thank the hotel enough for their generosity. The room was out of this world with two balconies, one of which being the biggest I've ever seen! Breakfast was lovely and the staff were very helpful. The free shuttle bus to the town centre made the holiday for us, it was amazing. There was an abundance of amazing restaurants in Sorrento and St. Agnello so we never experienced the hotel food but judging by the standard of the rest of the hotel, I presume it would have been nice. The pool was brilliant and we could always get a bed. You also get a towel card for you stay which is really helpful. The grounds of the hotel really made it for me. It is so relaxing and peaceful. I feel very lucky to have been able to stay here. Thanks again for a wonderful holiday!More
Two Stars rather than Four!
Ageing hotel in need of serious refurb and well out of Sorrento off a bustling road, nowhere near the sea or any coastal view. Room plain and no outlook but ours was otherwise not bad and at least the A/C worked - but three couples in our group insisted on an immediate room change on arrival. Hotel is among other buildings and you see the flat residents' washing on their balconies as you sunbathe. Pool and sun beds otherwise OK but public spaces were only superficially clean and for example the fabric of the ancient seating in the bar area was really grubby. Rabbit warren layout with threadbare corridors and fire safety doors wedged open. Worst aspect was the food; dining room staff were nice but it was really just cheap food tarted up. We hardly saw any real meat or fish all week, mainly pastry, pasta and recycled veg. Nothing like four star and a lousy location. Never again.More

Nice, Basic Hotel
I stayed here with a friend and we had the most amazing time in Italy. The hotel room was very basic and the lift didn't take us to our room so carrying cases up and down proved to be difficult. The walls were thin so we could hear everything next door and I know they could hear us as they would bang the walls if we returned back later than 10pm. Hotel shuttle bus to Sorrento was excellent and, whilst we only spent one day by the pool, it was a nice environment.More
I only ok
Nice entrance pool and garden. We had a nice room but it seems half the hotel has been improved and the other side old carpets and not as nice. Breakfast boring, need fresh fruit salads nice rolls and decent coffee, only had Bed and breakfast. The road into town dreadful narrow busy, uneven, full of fumes, were ill with the fumes. Sorrento is so busy, even when they stop some of the traffic in the evening its not good. Too many groups and cruises in, trip to Capri manic. Tours expensive my advice go to the lakes, or try Spain. If you want a bit of quiet relaxation. We won't go backMore
Not a nice walk to Sorrento - and limited wi-fi!
We stayed at this hotel for a week on a B&B basis at the start of October. The hotel is off the main road into Sorrento, but is set back, so noise from traffic is not a problem. There is a shuttle bus service into Sorrento, or you can walk for 20 minutes along the Costa Italia straight into the town centre. However the walk is particularly unpleasant - you will be walking by a main road on a frequently rough walkway, with traffic thundering along next to you at all times day and evening, and often you have to walk in single file because the pavement is so narrow - not a great experience, and one I wouldn't like to do if I had children, or was less sure-footed. However, as a couple, it was okay, and we walked it most days. LOBBY: A lovely, light lobby area - it's a shame there is not more seating here as it would be a nice place to relax and read. WIFI SIGNAL - OR NOT! One of the biggest problems was a lack of wi-fi signal. Wi-fi is not available in the rooms, or in the lobby, but only in one area by the pool, and downstairs in the dark and dingy lounge area (see next section). These days, that's not really acceptable to most hotel guests, and it's something the hotel should sort out soon. LOUNGE AREA The lounge area is dingy and dark , and the soft chairs are in need of a good clean. The chairs around the tables look new and clean, but are highly uncomfortable to sit in for more than a few minutes.. Very quiet, not much going on in the evenings. It's a rarely used area, day or evening, not surprisingly, which is a shame - it's a large area and could be better utilised for the benefit of the guests and the hotel. In the evening I suggest you go to the Wine Bar in Sant Agnello (walk to the main road and turn right, it's 2 mins walk away). We spend several very pleasant evenings there. POOL AREA; Water in the pool looked clean but was cold - but then it was October! There is an outside bar and an outdoor seating area as well as the sunbeds all around the pool. In summer, this would be a nice area to relax in. BEDROOM: We were given a corner room. Our room was spacious and clean, and from chatting to other guests we realised we were quite lucky - it appears that the rooms in the hotel are a hodge-podge of sizes and shapes. However the balcony was tiny - room for two chairs and a small coffee table only (at a squeeze) and the bathroom design was absolutely terrible - the shower cubicle being at the wrong end of the bath (instead of behind the door) leaving little space between the shower door glass and the sink on the other side of the room. There were good size wardrobes and dressing table, but no amenities (kettle, coffee etc) provided. A small kettle and a couple of mugs, and a few sachets of coffee/tea/milk/sugar would be a easy and effective improvement. The beds felt hard, but were surprisingly comfortable. However the walls/floors must be quite thin - you will hear your neighbours TV and talking (and arguing, as was the case without neighbours!) BREAKFAST: Breakfast is quite basic, and if you like cakes and pastries for breakfast you will be fine. A few different cereals, a couple of different breads, a bit of cheese, meat and tomato etc - nothing special, but adequate. Staff - reception and waiting - were helpful and pleasant. The hotel is tired and in need of some care and attention, which I hope it gets soon. This hotel could be so much better if the owners actually took some time and put some effort into providing the standards that hotel guests expect. Instead it seemed to be happy to just coast along. One final comment - the hotel weather forecast, in the lobby area - take with a pinch of salt! When we arrived the forecast warned that the next two days would be heavy rain all day, with thunderstorms. Instead we had 2 beautiful days with bright blue sky and the odd cloud, with a couple of claps of thunder in the evening. The weather forecast for the rest of the week (according to the hotel) was poor - but the weather we experienced was far from that, with only one evening of rain. So, do your own research on the weather - don't believe their "Forecast of Doom"! NOTE: I've just re-read this review and it seems that I didn't really enjoy my stay. I did, and in reality there was nothing major to complain about - but it could be so much better, and that's frustrating from a guests point of view. It's a lovely looking hotel, from the long drive with the fountain by the entrance to the hotel entrance and spacious lobby, and it deserves to be better.More
