Just returned from yet another wonderful stay at the Hermitage 😎. We have been frequent guests and first fell in love with this fantastic hotel and Sant Agata on our first visit in 1978 so I think that speaks for itself..!! We are always guaranteed a wonderful welcome and totally feel at home here. This is a perfect place to come and explore Sorrento and is a really good base to get to lots of other wonderful spots to sightsee. The Hermitage also has the benefits from the most stunning views 😍. Can't ever imagine a year without a stay here so thanks again to Renato, William, Salvatore (best cocktails ever 🍹🍸) and all the staff who always make our visits so special 😘 ci vediamo l'anno prossimo.

We spent a lovely week at this Hotel, it was nicely located if you prefer a quieter and more relaxed location, however the regular shuttle bus (which runs from 9am-11pm) provides an excellent way into Sorrento. (Driven by the friendly and helpful Franco) All of the staff at the hotel were always cheerful, happy to help and very informative. They were incredibly attentive and nothing was ever too much to ask. Their English was great and their hard work made the hotel live up to its great reputation. We were greeted to a clean, tidy, authentically decorated and spacious room with a balcony. The room service staff did a great job, keeping the room clean everyday. The room was equipped with air-con, plenty of storage, a safe, sink, bath/shower, TV and a hairdryer. The hairdryer wasn't that powerful and we would have liked tea/coffee making facilities. Room service was available, however we did not make use of this. We went half board and were provided with a diverse and always well-cooked 4 course meal every night, plus breakfast. The food was really tasty, but sometimes slightly under-seasoned. Despite catering for 50+ guests, the kitchen staff and the waiters never made a mistake and the food was always perfectly cooked. The food servers were cheerful, spoke good English and were always willing to go that extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. The food on offer was different every night and catered to people of all tastes- and the selection of wine, beer and other drinks was diverse too. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel, however we booked this as a package holiday through Thomas Cook, who tried to sell us excursions through them (Pompeii, Capri, etc.). After speaking to people who had been to Sorrento in the past, we decided to research how to get to various places ourselves- which we did by going on local buses and trains. The local transport was easy, thanks to the English-speaking train, ferry and bus staff- we saved over 250 euros by doing this!! The hotel were also great at giving advice and help on the local transport links.

Yet another week staying at the Grand Hotel Hermitage and, as ever, I can only give a positive review. Stayed with my two sisters in a three bedded room but still had enough wardrobe and drawer space for all of our clothes. I bought my own hangers just in case!!! We only have breakfast in the hotel but there is plenty of variety and you definitely do not need to go hungry. Pool area was clean and tidy and they had new sun beds this year, pool towels are available free of charge. We love all the staff here, a few new faces this year, all are extremely friendly and helpful. Salvatore makes a mean gin martini, our traditional first drink of our stay here, the crisps and nuts are always welcome!!!! So once again, thank you, William, Renato and all the staff. We had a fabulous stay. Next year will be the 40th anniversary of when we first came to the Hermitage with our dad, so looking forward to making it an extra special holiday. This hotel is a such a special place for us, thanks to our dad for taking us there and making us fall in love with Sant Agata and Italy xx

We stayed here for a week in July. We had room with sea view. Such a view over the bay of naples and mount vesuvius. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. While the hotel is 15 mins away from sorrento the hotel offers a courtesy bus which runs every hour except between 1 and 4 siesta hours. The hotel has a private path which leads to the village of St Agatha which has lots of restaurants shops and bars. The hotel rooms are spacious and cleaned every day and as we only had breakfast in the hotel this is the only meal we can comment on. The breakfast consisted of cooked and continental buffet style and had a great selection. If you want a hotel that has it all this is it.

My wife and l have just spent a lovely fortnight at this great hotel. Right from the start Renato and his staff could not do enough for you, from booking excursions to giving you information on the local buses. I had paid for a sea view room, and the view did not let me down. We looked across the Bay of Naples with Mount Vesuvius in the distance and of course Serrento. The hotel is some way from Serrento, up on the hill, but does run a bus shuttle through the day, last one is 11 at night. No problems with sun loungers around the pool as there are plenty for everyone. We only had breakfast in the restaurant and there was a wide choice of food available. The little town of Sant Agata is only a 10 minute walk away with some great restaurants. We recommend ristorante Mimi, good food at a good price. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends as a lovely, clean and welcoming hotel with excellent staff and fantastic views. Recommend a sea view room

My husband and I returned from our first trip to Italy a few days ago having stayed in the Grand Hotel Hermitage. All I can say is wow! The views catch your breath during the drive to the hotel and on arrival and check in to our room, the view from the balcony (5th floor) was even more breathtaking. The hotel staff were welcoming, friendly, and only too pleased to help. The room was traditional, spotless and maid service was provided daily. We stayed bed and breakfast so that we could go out and about in the evening to eat but there were snacks available for purchase throughout the day and evening meal options when we wanted to stay local. There was a good choice of good quality food. What was especially good was having everything charged to our room so we did not have to carry cash/cards with us. Special thanks to Toni, bringing us our drinks on the terrace and making us laugh with his humour (Tuesday not Thursday will stick in my mind), Salvatore and Carmena. Service from all of you was fantastic. William, the hotel manager was very helpful providing us with information on local footpaths down to Sorrento. The hotel is situated up in the mountain and a local free shuttle bus was provided by the hotel regularly throughout the day taking approximately ten minutes; offering many shops, restaurants and bars to frequent or to sit and watch the world go by. Definitely would recommend the 5 minute walk from the hotel to S'agata (restaurante de Mimi's was exceptional). We would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning. Thank you for making our holiday a wonderful experience. xx

We had a wonderful week's stay here. The room was great, the food was good (they catered to my gluten free dietary requirements pretty well), and the view absolutely amazing! The staff were really friendly and helpful. We can definitely see ourselves coming back here, and recommending it to family and friends.

We stayed here for 7 nights after a busy 3 nights in Rome. From our arrival to departure we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The hotel staff could not have done more for us and were so friendly and warm. Even on our departure the hotel owner arranged for the hotel to drive us to our next hotel in Positano and all we covered was the gas price! Before we left he came out from the gardens with freshly picked oranges for both of us which was a really nice touch. The main highlight for me with this hotel was it is nestled up in the hills overlooking the beautiful bay and that absolutely amazing view of Vesuvius just across the water. We caught a lovely sunset down by the harbour for dinner the other night and the very next morning the sunrise over the mountain range, spectacular. The staff as already mentioned are just lovely, so lovely it deserves another mention :) we will be thinking of this little gem for some time to come and already can't wait to visit again. What a great start to married life!

Had a wonderful stay hear at the Hermitage .Good prices , professionally run .St Agatha town 5 mins away a gem !!!. Would not stay anywhere else , Plenty to do, or you can choose to relax by the pool.. Highly recomend .

My wife and I had just two nights here recently as we were attending a wedding nearby. From the moment we arrived, the hotel staff were so helpful and friendly. We were upgraded to a sea view room and I have to say the view down to the sea was very nice to wake up to. The room itself was lovely - especially the floor tiles which my wife loved - and the balcony was nice and spacious. The hotel offers free shuttles to and from Sorrento - the last one back to the hotel is at 11pm. We had friends staying at other hotels nearby where the last one is 11.30pm so I think adding an extra one could be an idea. We weren't there long enough to make full use of all the facilities but every request we made to the staff was helpfully attended to and we were made to feel so welcome that, if we ever return to the area, this hotel would likely be top of the list.
