Excellent location - excellent hospitality!

Review of B&B La Lampara
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Sep 19, 2016
Booked the B&B La Lampara for a week whilst attending a wedding in this region. The accommodation is in an excellent location – a two-minute walk to beach in one direction and two-minute walk to main strip (shops/restaurants) in the other direction. It is set on a cobbled downhill slope so high heels may prove difficult (although not impossible as it's only a short walk and then you're on more even surfaces).

The rooms are clean and comfortable and have been thoughtfully decorated. We stayed in the 'Terra' room which was fine although lacked a little shelf space in the bathroom and no full-length mirror (which was not good when getting ready for the wedding). We did take a look at the other rooms and I think my favourite would have been the 'Sole' room due to the warm colours, larger size and better shelf space in the bathroom. It would have been nice to have a balcony big enough to sit out on in the afternoons/evening but none of the rooms provided this.

The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. We were met at the coach drop off point on our first day and taken to the accommodation and were even helped with carrying our luggage! They also lent us an ironing board and iron on the wedding day which was brilliant.

My only reservation was the breakfast. A lot of reviews here mentioned the fresh cooked breakfast which is what actually swayed us to book in the end but I was personally disappointed. If you like fresh cakes for breakfast every morning, then this is great but personally I prefer a more savoury breakfast and this was difficult to get until about day four when I think the hosts realised. There were usually 2 or 3 cakes available every morning and croissants and homemade jams and marmalades etc. but getting bread was difficult until we managed to explain that we would like toast – but then that was it – just toast. No eggs, bacon or anything hot. A couple of cereals were also available and tepid tea at a push (heated in a microwave as they do not seem to use a kettle) but overall the breakfast was a disappointment (especially as friends staying in other local accommodations were getting served eggs, bacon, sausages and other hot options and we actually paid to eat somewhere else one morning just so we could have something a little more substantial)!

So in conclusion an excellent location no-frills B&B but don’t expect an extensive breakfast (or hot cup of tea)!
Date of stay: September 2016
Room Tip: Sole is the biggest room. Terra is the newest room.

grazie per la vostra recensione, siamo felici che abbiate voluto festeggiare il vostro anniversario di matrimonio a casa nostra e siamo felici che siate stati una settimana con noi.
La camera "terra" che vi è stata assegnata è quella di più recente realizzazione e quindi, anche grazie ai vostri consigli, provvederemo a fornire di altri ulteriori comfort, come lo specchio a figura intera e qualche mensola in bagno.
La nostra prima colazione ha un carattere tipicamente Italiano; l'impressione che noi vogliamo dare di casa nostra è quella di una "vecchia" casa di pescatori dove la padrona di casa prepara la colazione con le proprie mani, non vogliamo (e non sappiamo) essere un hotel a 5 stelle. Pensiamo che anche chi viene dall'estero, possa apprezzare, per brevi periodi, una colazione diversa dal solito, una colazione italiana, appunto; se questo è un problema, come abbiamo sempre fatto, noi ascoltiamo le richieste dei nostri ospiti e prepariamo (o ci procuriamo) il cibo che ci viene richiesto, quindi basta chiederlo prima di arrivare o al primo giorno.
Grazie ancora e arrivederci a presto

Reviewed September 27, 2012

Touring the beautiful region of Cilento, we arrived in Santa Maria di Castellabate. We found this small B&B acc in the charming centre of this little fishing village. The B&B is an authentic Italian house with small garden and located in quiet alley. (Free protected parking on walking distance)
The rooms are BRILLIANT! very quiet, nice decorated, Italian designed and comfortable. At first we booked for 3 nights but based on the hospitality, complete breakfast (each morning we were surprised by home-made bakeries like lemon-cake, bread and all kind of Italian extras!) we decided to stay another 3 nights! The B&B is very close to the beach and mainstreet with local bars and restaurants.The landlady is very relaxed and caring for her guests, personal care is her goal. We have visited places around the world, this one really beats the best!
