Just returned from 10 day stay cannot fault the staff or cleanliness. Great location close to St Agata and free shuttle to Sorrento. Only recommendation i would make is to change the basic menu every fey days as we had a coice of 4 meals for all 10 days.thank you for completing my experience would recommend to everyone.
We Checked in to our hotel after hotel shuttle picked us up by yrain station. they were over booked that night, we got bump to the sister hotel, which was beautiful too. They picked us in the morning with ocean view room. The staff were all very helpful especially front desk, they help us sorts out transportation problems we had for Airports the day we were leaving. Very grateful for them to take times to do that. Its a little way from town, but sure are nice and quiet here with pool and views. we will surely be back if comes back this way.
We stayed 4 nights and couldn't have had a nicer stay. The staff are all very hospitable and advised on excursions. They even opened the restaurant until 9.45 due to our late arrival from the airport too. The breakfast was varied and the evening meal was very good value. I'd stay again and will recommend.
Stayed for 2 weeks in July and had a great time. The view from our room was fantastic. The room was fine-a little dated in places but had everything we needed and was very clean. Great to have the fridge. Enjoyed the food- breakfast was good-plenty of choice. Loved the fresh bread rolls. Food in the evening was good-plenty of variety and good quality. A couple of evenings we were forgotten , as people that came in after us were on their sweets and we were still waiting for mains-but it was quickly rectified when we mentioned. Good to be able the save wine for the next night if we didn't drink it. The staff were all great and couldn't do enough to help from the restaurant staff,to reception and housekeeping. We booked some trips through the hotel which were great and cheaper than through our rep. It was a pleasant 10 min walk to the village of Sant'agata. Here there were shops,bars and restaurants. The free shuttle bus down to Sorrento was also great-just needed to book at reception. Overall we loved our stay-and would definitely return.
the room was very comfortable we stayed with the hotel for a week fantastic views of Vesuvius and the bay of Naples free shuttle every couple of hours to Sorrento and free pick up The food...was to die for....menu was different every evening....congratulations to their chef. St Agata was just a short stroll up the hill past the olive groves having lots of restaurant's and bars. Best of all was the family and staff... William and Renato, Nivia and Roberta couldn't do enough for us. lots of hugs for Rock the hotel mascot. We are definitely going back. and bars
If you like a good view this is the hotel for you.Bay of Naples in front of your balcony every morning was beautiful.Rooms were Italian style with ornate tiles throughout all floors in the rooms.Breakfast was continental with some bacon and fried eggs thrown in,very nice.Beer and wine was very reasonable prices with great staff suitably dressed .A small village is only 5 minutes walk uphill with many restaurants and shops.The pool area is nice especially for children with a good kiddies pool.Those views wow!
Just returned from 7 nights spent at this lovely Hotel which is situated a 20 minute drive up into the hills behind Sorrento. On our arrival in Sorrento we called the hotel who arranged for us to be collected nearby by the free shuttle bus. An invaluable service as a taxi would cost around 50 euro and although there is a public bus service the buses do get very crowded. You need to book your return journey into Sorrento on the shuttle on a daily basis it is very popular . The hotel has spectacular views over the bay of Naples and Vesuvias. We stayed in the Villa Romita which is situated within the pleasant grounds,around 500 meters away ( albeit a bit of a climb) from the main hotel. On our first night we encountered a slight problem, which once it was explained to Renato caused much hilarity, but was dealt with discreetly and professionally and swiftly. (I'm only mentioning this to highlight how accommodating and understanding he was). Villa Romita offers small terraced areas or balconies for some rooms and a very comfortable well equipped sun terrace with spectacular views. We had daily maid service and clean towels every day. The place is spotless and very comfortable. As are all the hotel facilities. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly team here. On a very windy rainy day the staff came up to the Villa to ferry guests down to the hotel. Just one example of the level of service you can expect from this delightful place. We stayed on a bed and breakfast tariff, the breakfast was more than adequate self service buffet style with cereals,fresh fruit,pastries and a hot breakfast., tea and coffee and fruit juices The pool area is very comfortable with plenty of sun loungers. Towels are provided by the hotel. The village of St Agata offering a good selection of bars and restaurants is a 5 minute walk down a very well lit path and as an added bonus is down hill on the way back! I would highly recommend this hotel for its wonderful views, homely, friendly atmosphere, professional caring staff, cleanliness, and all round level of service.
we have just returned from 12 nights at the Villa Romita It is attached to the Grand hermitage & you have access to the lovely pool there The views are simply stunning We had room 1 in the villa which had a balcony & views over the bay & Sorrento The room was a decent size & although it is a little old fashioned it is very charming & quiet . The staff are all great & really helpful They organise trips & can update you on buses trains etc They also run a shuttle bus into Sorrento which was a must given the taxi prices. Prices for food & drink were better than at some places & the bar staff are formally dressed which was nice to see, Service was very good We did a great little trip on a little road train from the local village which we booked via the hotel for 20 euro it was fun & enjoyable . You can walk into St Agata in about 10 mins along a private lit path from the hotel so you really have the best of both world,s, we alternated between Sorrento & St Agata where there are a few restaurants, Mr Gregory's was very nice as was Mimis We would recommend this hotel for couples but there were a few families as well it was always quiet around the pool with plenty of loungers & the whole atmosphere was one of relaxation
Was just at Hotel Hermitage for 9 nights, and enjoyed it immensely. When we go to a different country, we like to get a feel for the people/culture. Hotel Hermitage is a family run hotel and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay (restaurant, bar, pool, shuttle service to Sorrento, and friendly staff). Public bus picks up right out front of the hotel, and you can walk to a town on top of the mountain. You cannot walk to Sorrento from the hotel due to the windy roads and no room on the road for walkers, but the free shuttle to and from the hotel is great and if you want, you can get bus tickets at the hotel. The hotel is up on side of the mountain and it takes about 10 minutes to get to Sorrento with no traffic. We took a separate/private tour of nearby towns of Amalfi, Positano and Ravello - fun day and you really appreciate the labor and masonry skills that went into building the coastal road, built into the side of the mountains connecting each town. Absolutely beautiful. Also went to Capri, Naples, Herculaneum and Pompeii from our home base at Hotel Hermitage. If you want a 5 star hotel with luxury bedding and turn down service, this ain't it. But if you want a very nice Italian experience at a comfortable, clean hotel with fantastic views of Mt Vesuvius that is reasonably priced, this is it!
This hotel is on the main road from Sorrento and our room 202 was on side overlooking road - No problem fully soundproofed windows advantage able to enjoy cooling breeze from one side to the other. Staff excellent helpful advice - Restaurant well run staff excellent food very good. My wife does not like pasta - cheese or excess garlic in the morning you choose from the nights dinner menu so a quiet chat with the manager and alternatives supplied, me I enjoyed it all. The shuttle bus has to be booked in advance and the drivers should be awarded a gold medal not only for their driving skills but also how they deal with rude americans who can not understand if a bus is full then they can not get on. Luckily the driver phoned and arranged 2 further vehicles to collect them. The pool and terrace has great views and plenty of sun loungers. The hotel dog gently walks around the hotel keeping an eye on staff and guests he enjoys a cuddle. This was our 40th wedding anniversary and the Grand Hermitage was a fantastic hotel to celebrate it in.
