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.

Nice hotel poor food.

Have just got back from a short break of 4 nights to this hotel including dinner / breakfast . We had a late arrival and were pleased to be offered a cold meat salad to eat which was very welcome. Are room was on the side of the Hotel and although on the small side was clean and in good condition with safe and air conditioning working well but i could not get free wi fi . The en-suite only had a shower so no long soaks in a bath. Breakfast was your usual continental type and good but the cooked English breakfast trays of beans bacon eggs were only average. Dinner was i am sad to say poor. Both me and my partner only lasted the starter and part of main, the food was of a school dinner standard ( for me that's late 70's). We ate out for the rest of are meals. Quite a few people around are table were the same and made their excuses and left. However the drink prices at meals and pool bar are I think very reasonable. The pool is clean and big with plenty of room for swimming or just having a splash. The hotel is about 5 mins from the train station and piazza tasso where you will find the start of lots of bars ,shops and restaurants. We went to several restaurants and the food was always excellent and well priced. If I was only staying at this hotel and not eating I would have given 4 stars maybe more but they must start giving free wi-fi to all rooms this is now a standard that people expect. The staff were all very nice and helpful. Would I stay here again? yesMore

James M,

A Great hotel.

We cannot praise this hotel enough. From start to finish of our holiday we were treated like royalty. Your staff from the cleaners to the manager were fantastic. Special thanks must go to the waiters .Nothing wasn't a problem for them and were always polite. The rooms were spotlessly clean and towels changed every day. The food was absolutely fantastic and served brilliantly. And I must comment on the bar staff ☺service with a smile. More

Couldn't fault this hotel

We had a lovely holiday this year (me, husband and daughter). The hotel was superb. Food was great, staff were very helpful, room was fully air conditioned and was bigger than the standard rooms we r used to. Only moan about the room is that the beds were a bit hard. Pool closed at 6pm which was a wee bit of a disappointment as its the nicest time of the day to go for a swim and a chill out by the pool. All in all would highly recommend The Flora. Great location.More

Not as advertised

An hotel with many good attributes and equally as many bad. The Hotel has three groups of rooms, those that are at the rear of the building overlooking the sea and Vesuvius, those to the side and to the right of the building which either overlook a brick wall or private, ill-maintained private apartments which are in very close proximity, or the worst at the front of the building which overlook a large rusty shed, railway line, a garage and car wash and are immediately above the main (and only) route into Sorrento. The noise of traffic, enhanced by the incessant thumps of vehicles driving over a loose manhole cover in the road, the proximity of the Hospital and Police Station with the constant wailing of sirens ensured that we did not have a decent night sleep. The rooms are basic. The towels are poor to the extent that I would use the hand towels at home for drying the washing-up. The cleaning of the rooms was debatable. Three drinks were taken from the bar to the room, the dirty glasses were left in the room and were not taken away nor cleaned for five days! There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room and WiFi could only be received in the Reception area. The only channel that could be received in English on the TV was the BBC World News. No info available as to how to work the AirCon, and Electric. No Tourist info readily available. Don't bother paying for the Fridge a sink full of cold water is cooler.. The reception/lounge/bar area is very nice, with the exception on a Tuesday night when ‘Benidorm’ style Karaoke was blasted out. Unnecessary and not appreciated. The Front of House Staff were superb, without exception. Friendly and accommodating. The saving grace for the Hotel is the Swimming Pool. Clean, well maintained and a great area for relaxing after a busy and tiring day. The bar staff in the Pool area were fantastic. I have to mention by name, Anna, Alberto and My favourite Guisey (I apologise for the spelling), her dad makes a great Pizza in a little bar (Master Host)r just 50 meters or so from the Hotel. The dining room is stark and overcrowded with tables. The food is mediocre to good, nothing to shout about. The cooked breakfast, coffee and tea making facilities are cramped . Once again it has a saving grace of overlooking the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius. The waiter service was good and again a special mention for Edmundo. The hotel décor and fittings are tired and need maintenance The proximity to the town, station and excursion outlets is a bonus. If you are wanting or expecting four star accommodation you will be disappointed. I would rate the hotel as 3 star if you are lucky to get a sea view and probably less than 2 star if you should be unfortunate to get a front room overlooking the road. The so called ‘Confidential’ survey that was requested at the end of Our stay showed your room number and required a signature. More fool you if you complete it. My wife and I coped with the situation because we had no choice.. I would not recommend this Hotel as 4 star accommodation. I cannot understand a previous review that was expectant of a ‘buffet-style’ main meal in a 4 star hotel!!! Where did they last travel? Butlins Skegness!!!. .More

Flower S,

EXCELLENT BASE IN SORRENTO

Perfect for our needs, we were on the roadside, but to be honest the noise didn't bother us, although I would try to get a poolside view if possible. We couldn't really use the balcony due to the fumes/noise. We live on a main road at home, so guess we didn't notice it as much as others might. The rooms were fine, mini fridge with 10 euro charge, TV with CCN news, decent bathroom with good shower and free in room safe. Food was generally good, dinner was 3 course and changed each night (there was the option of 3-4 different meals with veggie each night). They also were very obliging with meals for the children and would offer pizza and plain pasta as an option. The service in the restaurant was very good, with the waiters being very friendly. There is a pool side bar which serves reasonably priced food and all the extras are added to the room, so you can pay on credit card on departure (saves taking too much cash!). The hotel was clean, and reception was spacious with lots of seating. Our children are teenagers, and we were able to get WIFI in our rooms (we had 2 adjoining rooms), which was a blessing! But not all rooms have this, we just happened to be above reception so picked up the signal. The main areas have free WIFI. The hotel (in my opinion) is more suited to couples and older children, there weren't any kids clubs or activities, which personally we liked (no reps shouting around the pool for volleyball!). The pool was quite calm, with most people reading or lounging, which again we liked. Gala night was worth doing (on Wednesday), included in the cost and the waiters put on a show for the guests, we didn't share a table, but couples were placed with other couples to make up tables of 4. About 10 minute walk from the center of town, and the train station, so well placed, but when you first pull up outside ( hotel is opposite a petrol station), it doesn't look best placed, once inside though it is perfectly fine. The staff were great, very helpful, restaurant view was breathtaking, transfer was about 90 mins from Naples, so be prepared for that. We didn't do any of the Thomson excursions, did most of the trips on our own and managed quite well. Bus station is by the train station and we took a coach trip to Amalfi, train to Pompeii and boat to Capri.More
