Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Vue D'Or Sorrento
Nice Hotel Shame about the food.
we arrived at the hotel after a long coach ride due to the strike at Napels airport nobody seemed to be around. The hotel was dark and a little forboding when you entered it and also very cold. THE FOOD IS A JOKE LITERALLY. Breakfast was fine the usual bread ect but dinner was terrible not so much the food but the quanity ,for example I chose as my maincourse one night prawn salad and I asked if it was a salad what came was prawn cocktail in a glass. Seasonal veg for 2 nights was tinned processed peas and another night just chips we did manage to laugh about it with the other guests lamb chops where was the meat skinny chicken drumsticks,still we managed to fill up with bread. They could have made a lot of money after dinner in the bar, but it was to cold to sit there people were literally shivering altho it was early May it was cold at night. We asked if they could light the fire as there was a fantastic big fire place there but was told no it was May and we did not need a fire to keep warm so we all went to bed. The rooms are nice and clean but the towels are like kitchen tea towels very thin but you get used to them after a while. The hotel is in a lovely setting the views are stunning and the transport into Sorrento very good, the waiters and the cleaning staff were very nice and helpful just a shame the management could not take on board the basic needs of holiday makers.as it is a nice hotel.
My wife and I spent a week on half-board at La Vue d'Or from 20 - 27 May 2005.
Plus points: Superb peaceful location high above Sorrento with spectacular views of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius; warm welcome from friendly, helpful and professional staff; large reception/ bar/ lounge with reasonable prices for drinks and lunchtime snacks; several terraces - one beside the swimming pool - with plenty of sunbeds; rooms are serviced regularly and many have furnished balconies with great views; free minibus service into Sorrento - takes about 15 minutes.
Minus points: rooms are small (about 120 sq ft); towels are thin and non-absorbent; pool is unheated and quite cold early in the season; food is generous in quantity but rather dull, uninspired and repetitive eg fresh fruit as an alternative to desert was identical every evening - a small orange and an apple; no fruit on offer at breakfast and limited choices of bread and cereals.
We would give the hotel an above average rating if it were not for the disappointing food which brings it down to average. Booking in for Bed and Breakfast and eating out in the evening is probably the best option until the hotel finds a better head chef!
But we would happily stay there again.
Great place to relax
My best friend and our teenage daughters arrived at La Vue D'Or after 10 days of hectic train travel throughout Italy. We were impressed by the beautiful view and the gracious people who work at this hotel. It was a perfect place to take a break for a few days before heading to Rome and Milan. How wonderful to sit back, relax, and enjoy the sun during the day and the gorgeous sunsets at dusk. The accommodations, while not luxurious, were adequate, and the hotel shuttle to Sorrento prompt and useful. The highlight of my stay, however, was the perfect cappuccino our waiter served with a smile every morning. He was attentive and professional, and his positive, cheerful attitude was contagious, setting the tone for the rest of the day. I would definitely return there for a longer stay.
Nice place to stay
The La Vue D'or means golden fork in French. This is a charming place to stay. It reminded me of a country inn with a roaring fire.The views from our balcony were incredible of the Bay of Naples. It has a very remote location but offers complimentary shuttle service into and out of Sorrento.It is family owned and they all seemed very nice and helpful. It has a restaurant on the premises with a set price on the menu which was 19 euros for dinner. Breakfast was complimentary. All in all I enjoyed my stay in Sorrento and at the La Vue D'Or. Next time I will consider staying there again. It is a good home base to take in all the near by beautiful country side of southern Italy.

... the elevator. We did the latter and checked out the bathers (few), restaurants (more) and ferries to Naples for tomorrow. We caught the elevator back up, met Lois and Larry for a drink at the bar overlooking the sea, ate some mussels for dinner. One of our waiters entertained us with a few bars of O Canada. back at the hotel and Gary has just returned from the laundromat trundling his clean clothes in his carry-on.
... oil and oregano...so delicious but couldn't eat it all, such a shame but it was only 3€ As the big busses can't get up the mountian to Posifano we had to swap to smaller buses...scary drive up that mountain but oh so beautiful. The rugged coastline and the cliff top homes were just magnificent sights and my poor ole camera was working overtime. Once in Positano more free time to wander around this most beautiful town to explore, window shop ...
... have to make because of the winding, narrow roads up the mountain were unbelievable! Those drivers need medals to drive them every day.. SO we get all checked in and meet our tour group for a cocktail on the outdoor bar overlooking the ocean.. lights starting to twinkle as dusk arrives.. It was beautiful.. Only thing missing was my hubby!! Love mom, but just not the same! haha The hotel was beautiful ( not sure how we ended up booked there as we had chosen the 3* ...
Today I said goodbye to Rome and had to catch 2 trains to get to Sorrento. The first ine I had booked before I left and managed to get Business class seats on the high velocity train to Naples. Big comfy seats, drinks service, airconditioned and lovely and quiet. That leg took about an hour and 10 min to travel around 230km. Was I in for a shock on the next leg. I had read a bit about the ...
Italian Christmas...not the Charles Dickens type of memories but still wonderful in its own way. We may not have snow (see pic of Mt. Vesuvius tip top covered in snow though!) but it has gotten much cooler and winter has arrived in Naples, Italy and Christmas in Naples can be quite magical and follows much tradition. It is much more tied to family and the Holy Family, and still far less commercial than in the States (but each year that's sadly ...
