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.

Wonderful Anniversary Holiday ....

We returned last week from a most enjoyable stay at "The Bristol" during which we celebrated our 10th Anniversary. Every aspect of the hotel was excellent,from arrival at Reception,our superb room on the 7th floor (what views!!),service throughout the hotel and the quality of meals enjoyed.(We are really struggling to understand some of the recent negative comments standards and didn't consider eating elsewhere in the evening).The hotel's location is also very good,being only a ten minute stroll to the town centre. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay and would strongly recommend this hotel - we would definitely return to "The Bristol" on a future Sorrento holiday. PS. A special thank-you to Matteo and the restaurant team for looking after us so well on the evening of our Anniversary - a special day made even more so!! More

Light Sleepers & Non-Smokers beware

A beautiful hotel in a great location with outstanding views marred by paper thin walls between the rooms (every word spoken in the next room was clearly audible and having stayed in more than 100 hotels we have never before been kept awake by snoring in the adjacent room) and by the fact that smoking is permitted (ash trays provided) on balconies separated only by a low wrought iron gate, so if unlucky enough to have smokers in the next room one is wreathed in cancerous cigarette smoke whenever sitting on the balcony. Having said that the the balconies at least on the fifth and sixth floor, though not private do have the most amazing views directly down into the fishing village below and across the Bay Of Naples to Mount Vesuvius and across the whole of Sorrento to the mountains beyond. These balconies are provided with not only a table and two chairs but also two exceptionally comfortable deck chairs. The balconies on the floors below are smaller and overhang the very busy (and noisy) road directly outside the front of the hotel. The hotel interior is beautiful with great attention to detail and is immaculately clean and well maintained everywhere. The roof-top pool is lovely with outstanding views similar to that of the balconies, a snack bar and plenty of sun-beds The half-covered terrace on the level below the pool had the same wonderful view and is filled with huge pots of flowers and with the most comfortable chairs and sunbeds. It also has a snack bar open for lunch. The main restaurants (one a-la carte) have outstanding views. We had gone half board and although dinner was not buffet there was a good variety each night with certain dishes available every night. The hotel also has a little used large and lovely terraced garden climbing the hillside behind it The staff at the hotel were without exception friendly and courteous. The hotel is set on a very busy road and the Italians must be the worst drivers in the world. There is a "zebra crossing" right outside the hotel but this was completely ignored even when people were actually on it. It is a ten minute down this road to the beginning of the wonderful streets of Sorrento and there is a small store selling everything anyone could need within two minutes walk open from 09.30 to 23.30. Despite it's deficiencies the Hotel Bristol is a top choice for anyone visiting Sorrento.More

Great room but poor quality food

We loved our room on the fifth floor. The shower could be improved but everything else was beautiful. The balcony was fantastic and the floor tiles perfect. The hotel is in a lovely spot and about a ten minute walk into Sorrento. Every staff member was extremely helpful and friendly. We swam every evening in the pool which was large and never crowded. Often we were the only people using the pool. The sunbeds were not the best I've used but there are lots of areas to sit out and enjoy the views. Breakfast was excellent and we were offered a choice of eggs and bacon every morning. The dining area was on the 7th floor, beautifully decorated and had great views. Our only disappointment was the quality of the evening meal. Some dishes were ok but we felt that considering the price of our holiday we should have had consistently good quality food. Out of five main course options on one evening, two dishes were veal. Some dishes were heavy, for example deep fried mozzarella. We would love to return to this hotel but preferably on a bed and breakfast basis.More

Catherine B,

Hotel Bristol

Wonderful location just a ten minute walk into the centre of Sorrento. The room exceeded my expectations, spacious, well furnished, spotlessly clean with a decent sized balcony overlooking a tiny fishing village and Sorrento itself. The swimming pool, bars and restaurant were super. HOWEVER, the evening menu was repetitious, lacked variety and was very disappointing. If you are a "foodie" I would suggest just bed and breakfast and find a decent restaurant for your evening meal. I would have given a five point rating had the food not been so disappointing.More

Fabulous Experience

We visited with two friends for 10 days on a bed & breakfast basis. The hotel exceeded our expectations. The staff were wonderfully attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The staff even retrieved my wife's camera from a restaurant and had it delivered to her. The position of the hotel and the stunning views could not be bettered. The breakfasts were well prepared and beautifully presented. We had three lunches and two evening meals and these matched the quality of the breakfasts. thank you to all concerned in making our visit such a pleasant experience.More
