This was a nice size hotel, but I honestly did not spend enough time at it to give it a great review. Although it was spacious, the shower was VERY small and the bathroom layout was not convenient. The room was a nice size with a balcony overlooking some vegetation. The beds were alright as far as comfort goes. The location is not close to town, and although it is a nice downhill walk going into town, the trudge back up is not as pleasant. You could take a bus to get to and from town, but it was a confusing talking to the staff so we decided it would be easier to walk.

Well, it's what you expect from a relatively cheap hotel. But overall, it wasn't too bad. The decor was a bit dated and seemed a bit old fashioned. I stayed in a 4 person room with a few friends as this was part of a school trip. And this week was great!

Back to the rooms, although they were out dated, they were a comfortable side for all of us to fit. The bunkbeds on one side of the room were okay but they were very loud and squeaky. They also felt a bit unstable from the top. The double bed was a decent size. We had plenty of room between two people. Our bathroom was fine although the showers could have done with a bit of refurbishment. The corridors leading up to the rooms where very gloomy and actually quite scary in the middle of the night!

The food is kind of what you expect. For breakfast, we had cereal, really hard (probably stale) bread that was probably left over from the week before. We were provided with a packed lunch everyday as we were out and about. These were very basic. A sandwich, drink, an Apple, and maybe a price of cake. And for dinner, we had a bowl of pasta to start every day (and another crusty roll), a done kind of meat and potatoes for the main course. These were a good size portion and there was often too much to eat. From the resturant, there is a great view across the bay and of mount Vesuvius.

The staff were very friendly. Although speaking to them in English was a slight problem as they spoke very little of it.

The hotel is in a great position. It is just up the hill from the old town of Sorrento. It's probably just a 5 minute walk down the hill. The facilities at the hotel were basic. There was limited WiFi in the lobby area only. And there was also a small pool. This was great for the summer afternoons when the weather got very hot. But on one edge of the pool is a very large ledge that is very easy to loose things down. Things such as beachballs which seem to go down there very frequently. But the friendly staff went down to get it for us 3 or 4 times.

Overall, the hotel is a great hotel of you don't want to spend much time there and plan to do other things outside of the hotel.

I was there as part of a school trip and was unpleasantly surprised when I arrived. Despite it being 30 degrees on our visit, the pool was empty (no relaxing for us then). The hallways were dark and quite daunting and our room was a disgrace! The lamp on the ceiling was on the brink of falling, there was damp on the walls, there were hairs in the shower, there bunk beds were rickety and unsafe and the balcony was full of cobwebs.

The only thing I found enjoyable was the breakfast and the view of Mount Vesuvius out of the restaurant window.

We could have had an enjoyable Sorrento experience (6th to 13th September, 2015) had it not been for this sub-standard hotel where we had to stay for 4 nights as part of a two-centre Rome / Sorrento package with Mistral European Tours. Not a cheap holiday but the operators don't tell you the name of the "hotel??" until you have booked and paid. The place was dreadful and depressing! Musty, dark rooms 3 floors down from reception complete with 2 single beds and 2 tubular bunk beds!!! Dodgy windows and electrics, broken toilet seat, toilet door wouldn't close, ancient telephone which didn't work. Television almost on the ceiling with no British channel anyway. Food was terrible, uninteresting and inedible in the evening and at breakfast - incurred more expense in having to eat out. Rooms were like dormitories in a hostel. No hotel ambiance for having a drink at the bar etc., in fact it was a bother if you asked for a drink as they had no suitable glasses or change to give you and just a young inexperienced boy serving! Only school parties who noisily arrive during the night, adding to the barking of the caged-up dog from the adjoining property, would be happy to stay here!! "Recently renovated" - no way!! Worst place we have stayed in Sorrento and this was our 6th time. No way a superior 3 star hotel as Mistral advertises!!! 3 star rating must be years old, Cavour is more of a 1 star. We echo all that has been said by other travellers who were also with Mistral at this hotel. We felt cheated and disheartened after looking forward to our holiday in a nice hotel and in this day and age this is what you should get after paying a hefty price and putting your trust in a British tour operator!! Never again will we book a holiday with Mistral European Tours if the Hotel Cavour is what they think their clients are happy with! All in all it was a joke of a place for a holiday - just a roof over your head, that was about it!!! We have never felt it necessary to complain about a hotel before - all of the hotels we have stayed in in Sorrento have lived up to our expectations and in fact exceeded them!!

A family holiday for 4 people that cost several thousand pounds overall and we wind up here. Where to start? A catalogue of disasters from day one. First and foremost this IS NOT 3 star accomodation, it may have been once, in the 1970s which is where I would place the photos of the hotel that appear in the hotel and local brochures.

You can tell by the furniture and ancient television sets that we are talking about the 20th century. A local touist information office confirmed to our amazement that 'officially' it was three star but acknowledged that the records were out of date.

On arrival our party were shown to a small room on the third floor below ground which was dimly lit and had the feel of a prison about it. The room faced onto a poorly maintained tiled courtyard with limited daylight and a dog was caged up behind the hotel and barked incessantly every night.

The room had two bunk beds and two single beds. It was explicitly detailed while booking that we were a mother, daughter, son and fiancee and would require two double rooms.

Trying to get this message over to hotel staff was hard as they had only a small grasp of the English language. In fact almost every request we had during our stay was met with exasperation as if they didn't really understand what we were unhappy about, and to be quite honest they didn't care either. It's perhaps unrealistic to expect complete fluency but even the simplest requests were harder than they should have been to put across.

After making our feelings known we were reluctantly given an extra room which was even smaller than the first, smelt fusty and like all rooms was in serious need of renovation, particularly the bathrooms which had loose, grubby and worn fittings. The beds in this room were fit for children and not a 6'1 male.

To add to this farcical introduction to the hotel, one of our party got locked in the toilet for half an hour due to the ancient lock on the door seizing and this then had to be prized open by a hotel staff member with some force.

At this stage we were more than prepared to pay extra to be upgraded to a better quality of hotel but were informed that there were no rooms available in any 4 star hotel in the Sorrento area. A fact that was extremely dubious to say the least.

To appease us, we were all moved to slightly better and more spacious rooms on the 1st floor underneath the ground but the rooms were still very dated and the facilities worn and shabby and we were accompanied in our room by a colony of ants. Added to this, the air conditioning didn't work and some of the plug sockets looked dangerous to use. We reported the air conditioning but this was not actioned during our stay.

There was no formal bar in the hotel although the reception staff did provide drinks on request although they never appeared to have any change and for some requests such as a simple cup of tea they couldn't find the keys for the tea cupboard, farcical!

The meals in the hotel, as part of half board were adequate but uninspiring and were served up like school lunches.

The hotel is located at the top of a steep twisty hill above Sorrento. There was no shuttle service provided by the hotel to the main town. Therefore, the options were to find a local bus or walk some 20 minutes in 30 degree heat along a dangerous road that only had pavement part of the way up with traffic in very close attendance.

In thirty years of travelling around the world this is the worst accomodation we have ever stayed in and did not represent what was paid for. It was far from a three star hotel and at best could be described as a cheap youth hostel.

My advice would be to steer well clear of this place and also not to take advantage of any offers from MISTRAL Holidays as we were mislead from the word go and received no response at all to several emails and letters. An absolute disgrace.

Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast is a beautiful part of Italy and the town of Sorrento and the day trips available are well worth looking into but please choose your accomodation very carefully as staying at Hotel Cavour certainly soured our trip.
