Extremely friendly and helpful family run the b&B. They make you feel very welcome and assist with any holiday planning queries. The Pic Nic restaurant attached makes amazing pizza and pasta. The rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated. We were very happy with our stay there. Hard to reach through busy windy narrow roads. Not very close to the surrounding beachside towns. Car is a must to get to hotel. Breakfast is ok but very basic.
The hotel was very clean. It was newly renovated. The people were really welcoming. It is a good example of a family run hotel. They had the sincerity of a family and professional service.
Pizzas from Papa and Mamas biscuits for breakfast. Beeing a part of family. Superbe black vine (merlot) and home made ice cream (crocante). Salat "Caprese" of course. Rooms 1-5 are simpy beautiful.
Very friendly family running the hotel, clean and nice rooms, location off the beaten track and quiet in a small village in the hills above Sorrento. Good price/quality ratio. Apart from the "normal"' visits to Herculaneum/ Pompei/Top of Vesuvius and Paestum we also spent a full day in the direct surroundings with climbs/footpaths with spectacular views and nice "old times" beachvillage Marina del Cantone. This was a wonderful day ! a bit quiet in the hotel, since we were the only guests for a couple of days. Time it takes to travel ( very slow traffic on long winding road) to and from the peninsula/ Sorrento to autostrada near Pompei , but this was our own choice of course.
the staff were marvelous, the room is big and comfortable. the price is very cheap. the was keeped klean evryday.
cleanliness, family atmosphere and general wish by proprietors to make us comfortable,nothing too much trouble nothing wrong at all
Il Pennino is in an excellent position a few km from Sorrento. It is situtaed in the main square in Massa Lubrense. The owner, Sergio, is a most charming host and nothing is too much trouble - he definitely goes that extra mile to make sure you have an excellent holiday. The hotel is small but very comfortable. Our room had a huge balcony, with table, chairs and sunloungers, and an absolutely stunning view over the Bay of Naples from Capri right round to Naples. The restaurant at the hotel is also excellent. Travel by public transport is efficient and cheap - buses run every 20 minutes to Sorrento and it's a 20-30 min journey. I would highly recommend Il Pennino.
It is a new hotel, everything was immaculate. The room was very well designed and nice and airy with the high ceiling. The view from the room was stunning. The restaurant was lovely, we ate there most nights. I'd definitely stay there again.
Welcoming host, friendly staff, breathtaking views, wonderful food. Our room was large, high-ceilinged, recently modernised and very comfortable. The large balcony, westerly-facing and overlooking Capri and the Bay of Naples, was a real bonus, especially to view spectacular sunsets. The food served in the atmospheric restaurant (Il Cantuccio is an established restaurant) was excellent, with Sergio the host and Franco the Head Waiter offering high quality "off-menu" options. Real local Campania cuisine. Relais Il Pennino is situated in Massa Lubrense, a small town just 5km south of Sorrento - a quiet spot with some great walks and a direct bus link to Sorrento. Would have been nice to have coffee/tea making facilities in the room
