Wonderful staff and views. A true Italian feel.

Posted Oct 4, 2014
Pros: The roof terrace was a pleasant surprise as views even better from up there and loungers allowed for a relaxing book read in the sunshine.
Cons: I wouldn't want to see lots of modern updates but it would be great if the wardrobe draws had been easier to use. Sometimes impossible to pull open.
Location: Fantastic views of the bay of Naples and easy access to a small local beach. Visit Capri, Ischia and the Amalfi Coast using local transport.
We went back to Sorrento 25 years after our honeymoon there. Villa Margherita did not disappoint, it was really close to the the hotel we stayed in last time and I made a request on Expedia for a room with a sea view. We were thrilled on arrival to get a fantastic view over Vesuvius and the bay with a balcony as well. The general feel of the hotel is very traditional Italian, so don't expect the height of modern luxury but it is authentic and friendly. We enjoyed the breakfasts where there was a decent continental range on offer, although one day someone had already taken what seemed to be the one and only daily pain au raisin which did not start my day well! We did have some ants in the room during our first night but after reporting this in the morning the matter was quickly dealt with. The staff really made us feel welcome and were happy to assist with any enquiry. We were able to print out some flight details using the hotel PC and handed an extra umbrella when a stormy morning arrived. They are always on hand with local knowledge and suggestions. The walk into the main part of Sorrento is realistically 25minutes. If you do walk, beware of the traffic on the small sections where pavement is lacking; an elderly local nearly took me out with her wing mirror and it a very busy route for traffic with scooters weaving everywhere. Sample some limoncello on the way is my advice. In Sant'Angello find the fabulous delicatessen where Giovanni let us try nearly everything

Villa Margherita a Gem in Sorrento!

Posted Jul 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
We had a marvelous time at the Villa Margherita Hotel in Sorrento. It's a little far from the main train station (the next stop north) and the center of town. We had to take a cab to both the closest train station and the center of town. But the property is well maintained, the rooms were clean and the air conditioning worked like a champ. The staff was both friendly and very helpful and the breakfast was a winner. All-in-all, a good value for the money if a little distance from the important stuff. We liked it enough to consider staying again . . . my wife's sister and her husband stayed right in the center of town and had to wear earplugs and take a sleeping pill to make sure they got a good night's sleep. Don't get me wrong, Sorrento is a fun and exciting place and being on the main street in the center of town is convenient but NOISY. We're glad the Villa Margherita was both comfortable and QUIET!

The hotel is a bit run down. Location wasn't brilliant, 20 walk minute away from the center. Overall, you get what you pay for.

Old hotel near the coast

Posted Sep 15, 2013
The staff is very accommodating. However, they have little to work with, except the location. The rooms are spartan and uncomfortable, the beds are hard, the breakfast was continental with canned fruit and showed little effort, the showers are extremely small (smaller than every cruise I have ever been on). Most annoying was the mold and mildew in the showers. On the positive side, the balcony we had was large, the wifi was free, and the courtyard was nice.

Friendly family run hotel

Posted Jun 20, 2013
Pros: The friendly staff
Cons: Our first experience with our allocated room. The night we arrived the hotel was full and we were the last to check in.
Location: Sant' Agnello is about one km. outside Sorrento. From a terrace at the end of the road there are spectacular views of the bay.
Family run hotel where all the staff are doing their best to make your stay as pleasing as possible. If you are happy, they are happy. Some of the rooms are not up to the standard you can expect from a 3-star hotel. We were given a room which was not acceptable to us but after complaining to the manager we were given a different room on the third floor, where all rooms have been renovated a few years ago. That room was perfectly adequate. There is a roof terrace with spectacular views and sunbeds for the use of hotel guests. The restaurant, where you can eat outside under the lemon trees, has just one waiter, Alfonso, who makes everyone feel he has known you for years. All in all you are made to feel part of the family, which made our holiday just that little bit nicer. A very nice experience.

Hotel staff were friendly, spoke excellent english, had great local tips for transit and things to do. They clearly care about guest satisfaction and it shows. They found us some clean beach towells for a day trip to Positano. they had some odd rules about bringing food in from outside; not a rule we had seen anywhere else in italy or the naples region. as owner operators it would seem they solve past problems with rules, but they generally make sense to a normal person anyway. location was a bit of a walk from the train station, but nice and close to many restaurants and the water front!! breakfast wasn't bad compared to what we had seen. hard boiled eggs, cold cuts, pastry, ceral, yogurt coffee juice etc

Family own with a lot of heart. Nice relaxing

Posted Apr 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
I loved it. The family there, Margherita and Maria are sisters there running it for 35 years with their mother, Stella. Rooms were clean no bother getting in late, breakfast was good. Only negative is that the mother smokes in the lobby so it smells smokey a lot.
