Hotel Bristol  

Standout views. Three stylish restaurants. And a glamorous pool scene. It’s no wonder so many guests return to the Hotel Bristol year after year.

Perched on a cliff above Marina Grande, this family-run hotel is in a prime position for some of Sorrento’s best views. What’s more, it’s just a 10-minute downhill walk into the heart of town.

Bedrooms here are elegantly styled. Big beds take centre stage, while painted floor tiles and brightly coloured soft furnishings add a chic but homely feel.

Lovely food, great reviews....

We booked here in a half board basis, and we usually never do. We were a bit unsure as to how the included hotel food would work out. It was a very pleasant surprise. From the quality and quantity of the food, to the attentive service in the restaurant, combined with the spectacular views while dining, it was just fantastic. Superb location, nice bar, and a lovely pool area. We had a suite and the room and balcony was really spacious. Highly recommended overall.More

Staff go the extra mile

The hotel is really well situated , being a 10 minute walk to the centre of town and having wonderful views over the bay. The pool area on the top floor is really relaxing and seems miles from the busy road below. The rooms we had were smallish but adequate. We had a half board package and the evening meals were not quite as consistently good as other reviewers have suggested but this comment is only made but because in all other respects it is outstandingly good. Staff on reception and in the restaurant and bar areas were friendly efficient and welcoming without going over the top .It is hard to imagine that we could have had a better base for a holiday in this beautiful place ,particularly at the price.More

Fantastic views, lovely hotel

Spent a week at the Hotel Bristol in Sorrento. All I can say is FANTASTIC views. hotel is lovely with fabulous views over the Bay of Naples. Also within 5 mins walking distance to the town. Booked half board. Food was tasty, loved the pizza and also the pasta dishes. Would definately stay here the next time we travel to Sorrento.More


What a hotel! What a view!

From a distance, this hotel appears to defy gravity. Built into the side of a cliff face along the winding road to Amalfi. Still very much within walking distance of the town centre. We went during the 2nd week of May in 2014. The sun was shining for at least 30 minutes when we arrived, then the rain came! Which was a real shame as the hotel has some lovely gardens which wind further up the elevation at the back of the property and a stellar sun deck and pool area, complete witj a pool bar where they serve quite reasonably priced and tasty pizza! The restaurant is certainly a room with a view. The panoramic window displays a picture perfect view of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. The food was delicious - Three courses every evening - and the wine list was also extremely palatable! I entrusted my tastes with the sommelier and he really knew his stuff. The only down side for me was the lack of air conditioning in the room at that time if year - the management didn't seem to want to turn it on. So I was forced to either suffer in a stuffy room or open the window to let in the breeze. Which, unfortunately, due to the location right next to the main road meant the room (2nd floor) was noisey and filled in traffic fumes. The Amalfi road gets very busy during rush hour as it's the only road in and out of Sorrento. Not great if you suffer with allergies. I went home wih a chest infection! That really was the only down side though. The rest of our stay was a triumph, despite persistent drizzle and cloud.More
