Just the ticket!

Posted Aug 16, 2016
Pros: The location, Dario and his family making sure we enjoyed our holiday, Guiseppe bringing in homegrown figs and tomatoes = delicious!
Location: Close to the piazza (an after-dinner drink at the Marianiello cafe, perhaps?), supermarket, beach, train station, various buses - a perfect location
It was our first visit to Italy and our stay at The Secret Garden just added to our experience and we were looked after as soon as we arrived (with a refreshing glass of homemade Limoncello) by Dario and his family. The B&B is in ideal location to be able to explore the area and the train station, beach, buses, supermarket and shops are all to hand. There are also plenty of restaurants to eat at - we enjoyed going to the Trattoria Italia, getting an evening gelato at Delle Rose, eating massive pizzas at Pizzeria All'Angolo (close to the B&B/train station) ... we certainly ate well! Now that we're back from our holiday, we've realised just how lucky we were to stay at The Secret Garden and would recommend to others.

A wonderful (and truly secret) B&B...

Posted May 2, 2015
My partner and I stayed here for 1 week and loved it. Set amidst a beautiful lemon/orange grove, the top floor B&B is in an exquisite old building. Piano itself is lovely too - there are some great little ristorantes for if the travel to Sorrento is too much (although Sorrento itself is amazing and always worth the effort), however be aware that Piano is very residential - so if that's not your thing then staying here might not be for you! The room was huge and in keeping with the rest of the accomodation. The only drawback was that the bathroom was not ensuite and the toilet wasn't the best... Really wasn't the best - in fact one of the most temperamental pieces of plumbing I've ever encountered! However, I'm sure most people wouldn't care as much about this (my OH certainly didn't) and though the staff did offer us to switch rooms, I politely declined as the room itself was great... And I'd already unpacked... The breakfast was tasty and sweet, served buffet-style in a pretty pink room. Again this might not suit everybody, but we enjoyed it. All in all, wonderful welcoming staff and a lovely holiday. I'd recommend The Secret Garden to couples who are after a truly authentic, non-touristy experience, and don't mind a bit of a walk off the beaten track! One tip: print out a map before you travel, because it truly is tucked away out of sight - it took us over an hour to find it!

Peaceful and delightful stay in Piano Di Sorrento

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: Peace and Quiet
Location: Near Station and Marina
We have just returned from Piano Di Sorrento and were really pleased to have found this delightful bed and breakfast away from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento. The owners have created a really comfortable home from home on the top floor of an 18th century villa surrounded by lemon and orange groves in a walled garden. There is a large lounge, a breakfast room and 7 bedrooms all individually styled. There is free WiFi which I could only get to work in reception. There are 53 steps to climb to get to the front door so the Secret Garden is probably not suitable for anybody with mobility problems. The bed was comfortable, always plenty of hot water in the en-suite and the linen and towels were changed regularly. The breakfast was good for the price we paid. The property is kept very clean although there are some signs of wear and tear in the decor. Its a 6 or 7 minute walk to Piano Di Sorrento railway station which is two stops (5 minutes) from Sorrento for just over 1 euro each way. There are some good restaurants nearby we really liked Bistro Delle Rose and L'Antica Cantina.

Versteckte Perle

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Das Hotel liegt sehr versteckt hinter Mauern, dafür in einem wunderschön duftenden Zitronengarten. Wir hatten Blick auf das Meer und das Frühstück war gut.

Small b and b, basic accommodation.

Posted Mar 9, 2015
The secret garden was a nice place to stay and it could not be faulted for the price we paid. However as the weather was bad during our stay we spent more time in the room than we planned. The rooms don't have WiFi and could do with some new beds. The hotel staff however are very friendly and helpful.

Super Villa mit großartigen Garten!

Posted Feb 28, 2015 on Hotels
Wir waren zum Kurztrip in Italien unterwegs und suchten eine abgelegene Unterkunft. Die Lage ist super gelegen in der Altstadt von Piano di Sorrento. Allerdings ist, nicht wie in der Beschreibung geschrieben, ein Parkplatz vorhanden. Es sind nur öffentliche Parkplätze für 1€/h verfügbar. Im Sommer sind bestimmt alle Plätze weg. Ansonsten super Preis/Leistung.

Pleasing Autumn stay

Posted Nov 18, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff, quiet location, great shower and spacious room for a B&B with extra space and fridge etc.
Cons: Car parking is difficult, they offer a garage for €15/day, the alternative is a local car park a little walk away costing €1 per hour during the day
Location: Sorrento is less than 10 mins by car, though if visiting for a while the train may be cheaper than parking (train station is a short walk from here)
We visited from England for a week and were pleased with our experience. We travelled by car and used the nearby car park, and were assigned room 4 off the common lounge. It was not too difficult to find and we arrived in-between the official opening hours of the reception, but this was no problem. Pressing the buzzer gains access initially, after which your set of keys can be used for comings and goings. The building has multiple occupants and this hotel is on the second floor up a spiral staircase. We were greeted by a glass of Limoncello and well spoken English. Our room had a mini balcony with sea view and a separate area (very useful) with an additional single bed, small fridge and tea/coffee facilities along with an air conditioning unit (we didn't use this in November, just opened the full-height windows to the balcony). The double bed was a good size but not the most comfortable (ok for a week) The breakfast selection was toast, ham and omlettes (fresh from their own chickens), a selection of jam/chocolate spread, cereal with hot/cold milk and a selection of sweet options along with your choice of hot/cold drinks.
