A large pool and Sorrento’s shops and cafés close by make a winning combination.
The hotel is very well placed for views of Mount Vesuvius. And it’s handy for getting into Sorrento, too – the main square, Piazza Tasso, is less than 10 minutes’ walk from here.
The pool is generously proportioned, with plenty of room for laps, and there’s a bar at one end for drinks and snacks. The restaurant serves buffet breakfasts and waiter-service dinners alongside first-rate views.
In the UK, this holiday is only available from the Thomson group.

My wife took me to the Grand Flora Hotel for my birthday, it's a very nice hotel, the restaurant is on the to floor overlooking the sea, the food is very good with a good menu that changed daily, the service is very good, would definitely go back again one day.More
Great value for money hotel
Stayed here for a week in July. It is in a great location, ten min walk to Sorrento centre. Long walk to the marina and down a very steep hill. There is a lift down/up though for one euro. Was extremely hot while we were there and the downside is no umbrellas at the poolside so could be unbearable if very hot. It is on the main road into Sorrento and can be very busy and noisy. We were located on the side of the hotel away from the road but could still here all the noise from the road. No problem when doors are shut though. sound proofing is really good. Didn't like that reception control the air con. Nights were very stuffy in the room because of this. Would prefer to control it in the room. Our room was really small too and the shower was really small. Not good when you're husband is 6 foot and can barely fit in it. Did some good trips while we were there, Amalfi and Positano by ferry boat, Pompeii and Herculaneum and also a night at the opera which I really enjoyed (although not something I would usually do) Trips to Capri were full so missed out on this. Might be worth booking before you go so you won't be disappointed or alternatively just do it on your own. We didn't because it was so hot and was too much effort although a lot cheaper than the Thomson trip. The hotel in itself is lovely and clean. Rose the cleaner is English and cleans the rooms really well and always a greeting in the morning from her. The restaurant is buffet breakfast and waiter service for dinner. I cannot praise the waiters enough for their efficiency and professionalism. They are an absolute credit to the hotel. food was very nice too. No cash is exchanged at the hotel. Everything is put on the room and you settle the bill at the end of your stay. You can check your balance each day though if you are worried about what you are spending. We actually found it much easier and would def opt for this again if we had a choice in other hotels. We wold def return to this hotel as it was good value for money and hope to return when its cooler and get my trip to Capril.More
LATE BOOKING FOR 60 BIRTHDAY
Didn't know really what to expect so it was a nice surprise when we finally arrived.The staff were so friendly and helpful.The dining room staff were special, made you so welcome every time we entered the dining room. The view from the dining room was of Vesuvius amazing beautiful an sometimes with lave fires. 5 mins walk into the centre where there is an abundance of restaurants, bars, shops, cafe bars and market stalls.More
Very pleasant hotel
A very clean hotel. Although situated on a main road the double glazing is very good. Really comfy beds. Spacious room 207. Gala nights very good. Although we were half board we choose to eat out a few times as hotel food is typically a three course meal. Waiters were all exceptional. Only disappointment was that we were due to go on a boat trip and due to choppy sea it was cancelled the evening before.. A message was left for us, reception say a call was put to our room and we were out, we were back by 11 15pm. Surely a note could have been put under door or a call made early next morning to save us having to rise early, have breakfast and be ready for pick up st 8 15am, only to discover cancellation.More
Nice hotel shame about our "balcony "
We stayed at GHF for a week for a bit of luxury after backpacking around Italy. The hotel is very big, the pool was huge and perfect for the summer heat. There were always plenty of sun loungers available throughout the day. The pool bar was great and staff will bring your drinks over to you and you can also have use of their pool towels. We only ate breakfast at the hotel which was a strange experience but that is down to the hundreds of British tourists not the hotel staff as they were great! Overall the breakfast food was ok. The room was nice, some people have said a bit dated but I think it's more of a traditional Italian decor, the only complaint we had was our balcony. Which was not a balcony. We referred to it as our very own corrugated skip. We had booked a basic room so I was expecting a view of a road or a side of a building but this was even worse! It was joined on to the pool bar and you could see inside and anyone in the bar can see you. I assume we got this room as we booked independently and not through a tour provider like Thomas Cooke. On a plus point our room was right next to the pool and outdoor seating area so we sat out there a couple of evenings instead until we were politely told off for drinking our own wine! But when you're put in a skip room what can you expect! More
