The hotel is excellent especially with a sea facing room where your view of Vesuvius is special. The staff are generally all very helpful and friendly and furnishings in bedrooms and general lounges were excellent. Lunches on the balcony were excellent albeit we settled mainly for salads again with good service. I would visit again but I would not eat... More

The lounge areas are everwhere very nice and big. We had a beautful (Prestige) room with fantastic views . The room itself was good sized, a beautiful bathroom, and a good bed. Luxurious. The breakfast in this hotel is high class, even omelettes made fresh for you. It is just a few steps up to Sorrento town. The garden is... More

The hotel is beautiful, situated at the best location. The breakfast is great but the coffee can be improved to Italian coffee standard. The suite is very clean and the service is also very good. We would definitely either come back to Grand Hotel Royal or try their other hotels in Sorrento for a change. It is also good booking... More

We stayed here for a week in October in a Sea View room with fabulous views of the Bay of Naples, Vesuvius and the wonderful sunsets. We have stayed in many hotels all over the world but I think this has to be our favourite. The staff were amazing but especially the restaurant staff who were superb. A special thank... More

Just returned from a great stay for 3 nights B&B at the Grand Hotel Royal. Hotel decor is and rooms are very polished. Breakfast was great and the staff very helpful and pleasant. As it was end of the season we never used any of the facilities, nor did we have dinner at the hotel. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

The breakfast is just wonderful, the staff is great to deal with, and on a lovely day, they have the most terrace overlooking the Bay of Naples. You can sit out there with some limoncello and completely relax. It's like being in paradise! It is an easy walk to the Marina to catch a ferry to Capri, it's an easy... More

This is the first time we have visited Italy so late in the season so we were not sure what to expect. It has been a wonderful relaxing week staying at the nicest hotel of all our many trips to Italy.

This is a great place to explore Sorrento and the surrounding area. It's close to the town, an easy walk, which is great because it's E20 to go anywhere - even 2 mins down the road. The rooms are very clean, a little dated but the style is typical of the area. Try and get a room on the 2nd... More
