Thomson package. Nice Hotel, room with pleasant staff. Breakfast was good considering it was ‘continental’. However, the seasonal fresh vegatables at dinner down seemed anything but fresh and one meal we had spanish omellette served with fish as a substitute for potatoes. After dinner the bar lounge was absolutely ‘dead’. Mangement seem content to ignore this. Can I suggest a few middle of the road pop songs for an hour instead of the dreary background music? You can’t upset anyone because there’s nobody there to upset! A 10-11pm happy hour at the bar might help, just a slight upgrade on the drinks eg. A large beer for the price of a medium beer or a free mixer with a double spirit. Better to sell a lot at a small profit than none at all! The Thomson excursions are extortionate. Instead you can access Pompei from the rail/bus station which is 10 minutes walk from the free shuttle drop off. The shuttle driver will probably drop you off there if you ask him. E4.80 return + E13 entrance fee. Buying Pompei ticket online will avoid any queques although there may be a booking fee. Otherwise only buy tickets inside the railway station and inside the Pompei complex unless you really want a guided tour. For a free audio tour – google Rick Steve on the net. Heraculum and Naples can also be accesssed by train. Positrano and the Amalfi coast are an inexpensive ride from the bus station. Best to go to Amalfi bus station from Positrano to come back to Sorrento as buses are liable to be full at peak times. Positrano is very steep. Capri is E38 return by ferry that is walking distance from the shuttle drop off. Its E2 per bus journey once you’re there. The Augustus gardens in Capri town are well worth a visit.
Thank goodness for the amazing views from this hotel since it is located at least a 25 minute shuttle ride to the town of Sorrento. The staff here are all related and very nice, service was awesome but again you are stuck with what they have to offer. There are no stores or restaurants nearby to stroll to so unless you want to shuttle you are stuck there. The menu is limited as does appear to cater to patrons who have purchased a certain type of package. If you have any dietary issues this could be a problem. The breakfast buffet was well maintained and plentiful. The rooms are cleaned and well maintained. There is a mini safe in the room.
We have just come back from a fortnights stay in this beautiful part of Italy, the views from the hotel were out of this world. We had 2 room 653 and 660 looking out onto bay, we had nature at its best. ROOMS WERE CLEANED daily. We were half board breakfast was buffet style. You are given a table with your room number to sit at every evening, but you can sit outside if you wish for your breakfasy taking in the stunning view of Vesuvius and the bay of Naples. Its got a minbar in room if you want to use, we just used our own in fridge. The pool is in a lovely well situated part of hotel.
Stayed in La Vue D'Or from the 14th till 21st of October. As the name implies, the view from the hotel, over the bay on Naples, to Vesuvio and Napoli beyond are simply breathtaking, not just nice, breathtaking... Check in was easy and simple, given the card for the room, one floor up the magnificent marble staircase. Room was really nice, however on opening the patio door, I was kinda horrified to be looking directly onto somebodys else's patio, and I don't mean metres away, an adjoining, patio, directly facing the one in my room, to have stayed in the room you would really need to be facing a family member, otherwise it was useless, sorry... However, I went directly down to reception and complained, and the lovely young lady found us a alternative room immediately, overlooking the sundeck and the pool. It was perfect.. and so is the rest of the hotel. The staff are unbelievably friendly, from the cleaning ladies to the barstaff, nothing is too much trouble. In terms of location, yes, it is kinda far from Sorrento, but it's absolutely ideal that its ever only ten minutes by bus away, so even although its half way up a mountain, its the perfect location, in my very humble estimation.. Breakfast is really nice, from corn flakes to lemon cornettos, and everything in between, my own tiny little complaint is the coffee machine, great coffee, but it takes ages, and there is always a queue. please, get another coffee machine... Again dinners are varied and enjoyable, 5 starters, 5 main courses and always a vegetarian option, and 5 sweets. Please remember the food is of Italian origin, so don't expect typically English food, enjoy the difference! Bus to Sorrento, as many have said before me in once an hour, every hour, with a little gap for siesta, or whatever it is in Italian, And as for Sorrento, I don't think I've ever visited a more compact, prettier and friendly place in my life, It has a restaurants, and a bar and a limoncello shop on every corner, and there are dozens of corners, just go... Through the hotel we enjoyed a fabulous boat trip, from a little harbour on the coast, to Amalfi and Positano, stunning villages perched on the side of the Amalfi mountains, E50, and fabulous value for money, with a history and geography lesson thrown in, great day out.. Visited Pompeii, herculanium and climbed Vesuvius, all via the local train line, the hotel bus drops you at the station to catch the Circumvusuvio?? and all for 4euro returns, but do get a guided tour once you get to Pompeii or Herculanium, its around ten euros, but well worth it Buon giornata!
The decoration of the common areas and room are not to my taste but the hotel is well maintained. It has a swimming pool with great views. If time allows strongly recommended to just go for couple of strolls at the sunset. We were upgraded to a superior room and the views were fantastic. We have dinner at the restaurant since there are not other choice nearby. The food was good but not fantastic. Breakfast OK. A strong minus point for the hotel is the location. It is just far from Sorrento. You need a car or the shuttle provided by the hotel (this shuttle is also used by guests of other hotels nearby) to reach the town.
Had a great week at hotel la vue Dor Nice rooms good courtesy bus to Sorrento. hotel is a good base for sightseeing the trips from the hotel were good value and informative. Food was ok, lacked a little finesse. We were lucky with the weather but we did not use the pool.
A good clean hotel. Views are amazing, The rooms are nice, although our first room 162 looked directly into another room, the hotel did move us after a few days. The restaurant is ok, it is a bit strange having to order your evening meal at breakfast, and there is a lot of pork and veal which was a little disappointing. The area to sit after dinner is very bright and this could be much improved with some dimmer lighting and maybe a little music or entertainment? The shuttle coach to Sorrento is great and gives you time to go into Sorrento in the evening after dinner. Do the walk down to Sorrento in the day, it only takes half hour and after the first 100 yards on the main road you turn off down really nice little scenic lanes/paths down the hillside, you can catch the bus back.. I would also recommend doing the trip to Capri from reception for 50 euros, this is excellent value and be sure to pay the 22 euro extra to have the guided tour of the island with Vicenzo. A brilliant day out! I was a little disappointed with the hotel that when we arrived after at 3.30am flight (and it was still breakfast time) we asked if there was any chance of a drink and something to eat and upon checkout the hotel had decided to charge us 16 euro for a couple of croissants and a coffee!! A good hotel but could be improved.
This hotel is simply incredible - stayed here over the course of the last 4 days and had the best time. The views are incredible with Vesuvius being visible from outside the hotel's entrance - although the hotel is out of Sorrento, a free shuttle bus service is provided down to Sorrento with the bus running every hour. We didn't use the pool as we didn't have time - had we have stayed for longer, we undoubtedly would of. Breakfast was great and the waiter (Toni) will bring a smile to your face. All of the staff in this hotel are amazing and will do everything they can for you by going the extra mile!! If you're visiting Sorrento at any time soon, I would certainly recommend staying at the La Vue D'or. We will certainly look to revisit and stay here again!!!!
Not sure where to start really so I'll go with the positives, the hotel is clean and the staff friendly and helpful, the views are AMAZING and the public areas bright and welcoming. Now the negatives, the beds are hard, the WiFi is terrible and constantly needs reconnecting, the pool is heated but in reality it's still freezing, no pool towels provided and you can't use the room towels, the hotel provides a bus service into Sorrento but after dinner it's just too far and there is NOTHING to do in the hotel or local area so it's off to bed you go! The final negative is the food, breakfast is poor, really poor and even the fruit looked bad each day, everything was on the turn? The evening meals all taste OK but so much repetition with a slight tweak, the same potatoes EVERY night with veg, veal escalope, pork escalope etc, the food was probably cutting edge in 1982. One night they through a buffet together and I swear they had cheese and pineapple on sticks. I will say nothing tasted bad though so if that's your thing you'll probably enjoy it. If stunning views and an early night are on your agenda (the guests were mostly OAP's tbh) I'd recommend otherwise maybe something closer to Sorrento?
The hotel is on a hill looking down over Sorrento and across to Vesuvius - just stunning, worth paying a little extra for a room with a view. Staff friendly & helpful Rooms were clean, well kept and comfortable. Good sized fridge/mini bar. No kettle, so we took a travel one with us. Bed was comfortable Powerful shower, plenty of fluffy towels & a good hairdryer We were half board, breakfast was adequate & plentiful - if you enjoy cakes and pastries for breakfast you'll be in heaven. Evening meal had 5 choices of starter, main and dessert - bit 'samey', nothing wrong with the food, but I didn't really enjoy selecting my choices at breakfast and whilst it was presented well it was nothing to write home about. We ate in the hotel after our days out - we were shattered so was handy not to have to venture out again. On the other evenings we just let them know at breakfast we'd be eating out. Pool area and sundeck were very nice - we were lucky to enjoy good weather in October and so had a couple of spells by the pool. Shuttle bus was a godsend, very reliable, never full & drivers friendly Finally, the hotel offered a couple of boat trips to Amalfi/Positano & Capri. We were going to travel independently but they were such good value and convenient that we booked these and were not disappointed Would stay again, b&b rather than half board - but don't be put off by that, others were raving about the food - just didn't do it for us
