We go to Sorrento every year we being my family because we created memories and it's so sacred to us. Our friends over in Italy are teaching me Italian and I'm teaching them English! all In all a very recommended holiday! CANT WAIT TO COME BACK!!!!
... find our car's destination and make the nominated train. Let's just say the Perugia train station's usual inhabitants don't make it a lovely place to have to wait an hour but it was no big deal and we eventually got our train to Rome. Easy enough and after a quick rest stop and a sandwich for lunch we made it onto our train to Naples - just! Arriving at Naples at 4.15pm (yes the 5 hours we'd budgeted had already expired) ...
Our final afternoon in Rome was spent out of the town centre at a beautiful village overlooking Lake Albano. This village contains the Popes summer residence and consequently has an amazing church. The village is very pretty with its expansive lakeside views.
We then enjoyed a local dinner in the town of Frascati. Being a Saturday night, the locals were all in town, and it is the custom to just be in town and socialise. Again, we had a huge dinner of about 5 courses, ...
Had my last breakfast with my hostess at 8 am, she really was a delightful lady and I hope to see her again if possible. Left the apt a little before 9 to walk to the train station to make the 9:37 circumsuviana train to Napoli in order to catch the Frecciarossa train to Roma, I have a reserved seat leaving at 12:00. I had to stop at one point to take the back pack off, note to self: pack LIGHTER!! I have no idea how to do this as I only have the carry on and smallish back pack... but ...
... some still laid in the tombs they were buried in. The display was grim, creepy and fascinating at the same time.
After our couple of nights in Palermo, we were headed back to mainland Italy to the Amalfi coast. The area, which is described as one of Italy's top destinations, consists of the towns of Sorrento, Naples, Salerno among others. We were headed to Sorrento for a home base to explore the coastline and for easy day trips to the surrounding areas. However, ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ascot Sorrento
I loved the Ascot hotel because the staff change everything to your likings. For example if I didn't like the food on the Menu I could ask for plain pasta. Also the staff were delightful to be around the waiters helped me with my Italian and they talked to us about our day. So all in all a really good stay and I hope I will come back soon!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ascot Sorrento
We have just returned from our two week stay in Sorrento. We booked an allocation on arrival holiday and were allocated the Hotel Ascot which is very central in the town.
Enjoyed my stay at Hotel Ascot
My girlfriend and I recently spent 1 week in this hotel. We were very pleased with our selection. I would describe the hotel as clean, with very friendly and efficient staff. We were on a B&B basis. Breakfast was nice but repetitive but certainly filling. The pool is deceptively comfortable. It is in an excellent location relative to the town centre. I will recommended this hotel to my friends. It is good value for money. I did have a bad experience in a different/ separate restaurant across the road as I was overcharged.
Stayed here in May, thankfully for only 3 nights.
Good value hotel
Very well sighted, just outside the old town and a short walk down to the prettiest part of Sorrento, the marina grande. The hotel was clean and the public areas were very comfortable. The bar was quiet and reasonably priced. Our room was quite large and quiet inspite of being just behind the bar. Some other guests on the ground floor complained that there rooms were dark although this might be an advantage in the summer. The staff were helpful and very friendly. The food was typically Italian, well cooked and tasty, although some of the men thought that the portions were a bit small. We were there on a Thomson holiday and I would recommend this hotel as good value for money.
My husband and I stayed at the ascot recently and thought it was great value for money. A little noisy at the front but we were told to expect that. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, including the dining room staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them but one or two of the meals were not to our liking, but you have to expect that in a foreign country. Bar prices were very good in comparrison to other bars in the town. Great position for going into town or to the two marina's just a few minutes walk. Altogether a great holiday and we would recommend the hotel to anybody.
Have visited this hotel in the past and have recommended it to friends, however we felt on this visit that some of the previously excellent standards had dropped. The hotel has been renovated recently and some new rooms have been added. The dining room has also been moved and now seems to cater for more guests. We felt the service in the dining room was poor - there was not the same choice of food as before and we ate out some nights as we didn't like the menu. The room we were originally given was quite obviously a single room. We were moved after 3 nights in the single room however.
i stayed at hotel ascot for 1 week last july (2005). i think it is the perfect place to stay for a short break in sorrento. our room was basic but comfortable, the buffet breakfast was good (plenty of cereal, meat, cheeses and fruit), staff were friendly and spoke good english. the location is fantastic, just 5mins walk from the main street and square which become completely pedestrianised at night. we did not eat dinner at the hotel but with pizzas and pasta available from €4 at nearby restaurants we never felt stuck for a meal (or ice cream!). i felt the area was quite and safe; the main promenade is full of families and children (local and tourist) at night time and police are always near by. i would recommend hotel to ascot to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, good hotel in sorrento. i would definitely return next year.
We stayed at the Hoel Ascot for a long weekend booked though a tour operator.
Just love this hotel
My wife and I have stayed at the Ascot ten times in the past twenty years, and we have ALWAYS loved it. The people are so friendly, the food, accommodation, and the service are very good, and the hotel is well situated for just about everything in Sorrento. Hope to be back soon.

Just returned from staying at this hotel for one week and found it to be a great value for money hotel. The staff were all very friendly and efficient and all spoke very good english. The breakfast was a basic continental breakfast but dinner was excellent value (three courses, a mixture of traditional and local dishes). The hotel is also only a three-minute walk away from the main piazza. The rooms are basic but clean. The only downside is that the hotel is positioned on a relatively busy and therefore noisy corner but if you don't mind some noise and are looking for a reasonably priced hotel the Ascot is the hotel for you.
