Italian Fawlty Towers

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 30, 2004

The Excelsior cannot be beaten in terms of views. They are simply stunning. The rooms were clean and tidy, with balconies overlooking the sea, with Amalfi town far below. The entertainment begins in the restaurant (see other reports). Armed with the info about getting a good position in the restaurant on the 1st day, we rejected the table offered, only to be allocated one right at the back! The head waiter, with toupe, was clearly in the wrong job. Food choice was restricted and largely used tinned vegetables in its creation. Omelette was a regular, unless they ran out of eggs. The meatballs with spaghetti is worth a smile too. Ours looked like deformed sausages, served, like the other food on plates covered with silver salvers, which were removed with a flourish by the waiter with a cheery "Bon Appiteto"! Dersert is always "cake", but if you ask you can get fruit or ice cream. The chocolate ice cream is the best option. Beware of the green coloured variety that smells like toilet cleaner. I never did discover what flavour it was meant to be. All roads along the Amalfi coast are narrow and punctuated with hundreds of blind bends and hairpin bends. Buses are the safest option, and cheap too. The trips to Pompeii and the Isle of Capri are well worth taking. Mid October seemed an ideal time to visit, with temperatures in the low 70's. If the price is right, I would recommend the Excelsior, but you must have a sense of humour. Finally it's not 4 star...

Unique Quality: As well as great views, the Excelsior has peaceful terraced gardens below the hotel, when you can sit and read. One level has Jasmine growing above the path over a wooden structure. The scent is magical. The hotel pool was not used while we were there, but seemed clean and inviting.

Directions: High above Amalfi town on the road to Pogerolla.
