Sorrento Experience – Family-run B&B with 3 letting rooms, about 10 minutes walk from centre of town. We had a spacious ensuite room, with air-con’, and narrow balcony overlooking the lemon groves behind the house. The two rooms on the front of the building have wider balcony with views towards Vesuvio.

Situated in a very narrow road (too narrow for our large taxi from the railway station) we were met at the end of the road by (landlord) Roberto, who brought us to the house. Shown our room, Roberto then printed out a town map and explained the local best places to visit, recommended a couple of eateries from the many available, and arranged a pizza delivery so we had something to eat before an early night (we arrived after 9 p.m, having travelled all day).

The room had its own fridge, and there’s a table in the hallway with kettles, coffee maker, selection of teas and coffee available – and a microwave (there’s a supermarket close by if you wanted to make use of it).

A small key-lockable safe in the room, big enough for purse and wallet.
Breakfast (yoghurt, fruit juice, croissants, bread, butter, preserves, whichever tea/coffee you asked for) brought to your room at the time of your choosing between 8 and 10 a.m.

Wardrobe with hanging space, but shelf/drawer space a bit limited (though we didn’t have to ‘live out of the suitcase’). Tiled floors throughout (and fully tiled bathroom).
Our room was designed to cater for disabled folk, with wide door to bathroom and very generous shower area.

Good wifi signal. Limited parking (bookable – no charge) but do bring a small car if you want to negotiate this wee road and get use of the parking.

Once arriving at the entrance to Via Talagnano, follow the signs for restaurant Donna Sofia ’till you reach Sorrento Experience, by foot or by car. Noted that google maps doesn’t penetrate this road very far, so doubtful that satnav would take you right to the door?

Roberto -who works as a 3rd Officer on cargo ships but was home for our visit – took us back to the station, as a courtesy, to catch the bus to the airport on departure day.
Anyone looking for a B&B rather than a hotel should consider this one!
