Grand Hotel Flora  

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.

Lovely hotel.

We stayed here for 11 nights, it's a lovely little hotel. We'd read that the rooms were 'tired' but, in fact, we found them charming. The staff were friendly & helpful, the food was nice. The only criticism is the gala night. We went to the first one; it wasn't for us; music so loud you couldn't really talk and no choice of food. As we were half board we were disappointed to find that, if you didn't attend, there was no alternative offered. We had to go out for dinner which cost us over £60! A small gripe was the poor waiters having to wear jackets to serve in the evening, you could see their shirts were wet underneath. It wasn't necessary, it didn't make my food taste any better! Surely they could have just worn a smart shirt or even a waistcoat. All in all though, heartily recommended. More

jonat55,

excellent hotel, excellent staff

We spent 2 weeks at the hotel at the end of July 16. Our room was on the 5th floor and had a balcony with views of the Bay over to Vesuvius. We had no complaints with the hotel, and it's staff from Reception to the maid service could not have been better, or more helpful. Particular mention for Pool Bar manager Ana and lounge bar mgr Michelle for their pleasant hospitality. Smile and your smile is returned by the staff. .More

WE WILL RETURN TO SORRENTO AND GRAND HOTEL FLORA

We recently returned from Hotel Flora after a weeks stay, All staff were outstanding and it is difficult to pick out any individual. Restaurant staff were amazing always smiling and helpful. We had room 218 which was at the back so never troubled by road noise and nice view of pool and sea. Our cleaner was Rosemary who is English but has lived in Italy for 35 years. She kept the room very clean and was exceedingly helpful with advice on buses, trains etc. Pool is very good size and clean. We didn't spend much time around the pool as it was our first (but not last) time to this area and there is so much to see We went to Pompeii on the train. Station is less than 10 minutes walk away and return ticket for 2 was less than 9 Euros (we went on the slow train - express is much more), Enjoyed Pompeii but very very hot there and no shelter. We had already prebooked an Amalfi Coast trip with Viator before we left England, This was excellent value and as we had booked minibus we were able to get right into Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. Positano is very pretty with a beach, We did an organised trip with the Thomson rep to Capri as we thought it might be difficult at the port if we did it ourselves. Hydrofoil to capri then we did a boat trip around the island then went to Ana Capri by bus which was a steep climb. Wife did the ski lift to the very top and she said the views were magnificent - cost for ski lift is 11 Euros. Food on the whole was very good and we really enjoyed the Gala night where we had an extra course at dinner and free Prosecco We will return to Sorrento as there is still much more to see in this area. Would we stay at this hotel again - definitely without doubt, Once again thanks to all staff for making our stay so enjoyable, Any questions don't hesitate to askMore

Staff and location spot on!

A nice enough hotel it's location sells itself with a short walk into centre of Sorrento. Upon arrival we checked in on the front desk not the friendliest greeting ever! We were given a key handed our passports in as requested and that was it!! Luckily having been to Sorrento before it was ok for myself but some info regarding the hotel restaurant times would have been helpful etc. Word to the warning as in all Italian hotels you must hand over your passport upon arrival and collect the next day. Knowing what I know now I would give a photocopy in this hotel. A guest in the hotel went to collect his only to be told it had gone! I was utterly disgusted at the hotels attitude and even worse the attitude of Thomsons No help or responsibility was taken by hotel or Thomsons. It could have been any guest and my sympathy to the guests involved as they were treated shamefully through no fault of their own. NO HELP .Shame on you and Thomsons it seems as per usual all Thomsons and their irritating reps care about are over inflated Trip prices and commissions . I for one will be giving Thomsons a wide berth from now on . Same old reepetetive stories about selfies in Capri with A listers yawnnnnnnnnnn. I love Sorrento but I was amazed by the complaints regarding drink and food prices. It is no more expensive that home but some peoples mentality is if you cant drink for an euro a pint then its no holiday .I struggled with some of the sights I saw in the hotel. Underdressed guests at dinner a Star Wars t shirt and tracksuit bottoms??Really the hotel are at fault I have no problem with long trousers at dinner standards please!! The hotel restaurant is located on the 5th floor with spectacular views over the bay of Naples. The only problem is its size and layout ,manic is not the word! Staff are pleasant and very hard working but the layout is appalling and very stressful. A coffee/tea machine is located by the narrow entrance where you will also find the toast machine no room to swing a cat and very dangerous!!! The hot food choices were slop at best although there was an egg chef he only made omelettes . Shambolic so we left it on several mornings as it was really quite dreadful. The evening meal was a menu affair with plenty of choice but again the rushed atmosphere did not bode well for a relaxing dining experience. Food was average Gala dinner was ok nothing to write home about. Staff are clearly under pressure and nothing to much trouble but they were on top of each other rushing and smashing things and spilling food etc On a plus point pool area is lovely clean and relaxing. Pool bar food far superior to that served in restaurant all reasonable and served with a smile. Michelle is an asset to this hotel she's both hard working and friendly and her cocktails are to die for! We stayed on the second floor with a lovely pool view room that was cared for by the delightful Rosemary what a gem she is a truly lovely person who kept our room spotless all week. All in all another lovely week in Sorrento .I would return to this hotel if I had a late deal as the location is so good but it does need some serious tweaking in places . The Banana Split bar near by is worth a visit .I did find Sorrento busy this year it could be due to many locations that some Brits might have been used to out of bounds due to safety issues. Too many tattoos and underdressed people at hotel for my liking which is a shame not a good look. Towels are free at the pool but luckily had my own as they are not washed softly some had holes and some were threadbare. If you can get this hotel at the right price then give it a go .Wi fi is a joke and be aware the air conditioning is controlled by reception which would have been informed on arrival. I was left thinking it did not work!! Reception staff were rude and not at all interested. You also have to pay 10 euros for the fridge not a problem but again had to go back down to do so as reception staff had not asked if we wanted this service. The owner/manager was a severe looking woman who berated some staff members in front of guests in particular Michelle in the hotel bar .Not on I'm afraid highly unprofessional and frankly Michelle is wonderful Do not expect fine dining at this hotel but all in all we had a great relaxing holiday .More
