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.

Holiday heaven

Excellent four star hotel overlooking the Bay of Naples, an eight storey hotel built into the side of a cliff offers fantastic views. From the receptions warm friendly and efficient welcome to well equipped rooms, we found all staff to be friendly and efficient. After breakfast and made to feel at home by Matteo the head waiter a sunbathe and swim in the roof top pool, water a bit chilly as not heated but invigorating. Food only average for a hotel of this standard but quite acceptable, drinks not overpriced when compared to restaurants in the area. Really enjoyed our eleven day stay and will return.More

Fantastic holiday

We visited the Bristol hotel for our 10th wedding anniversary in September. The hotel is one of the best we have visited for many reasons. The hotel rooms are spacious and very comfortable with excellent service from very experienced staff who are welcoming and provide excellent service and the hospitality is superb. Thank you all for making our stay so wonderful. The room was cleaned daily with lovely clean towels provided and beds turned down every evening. The ambiance was very relaxing as we sat on the balcony looking over Sorrento in the evenings with our drinks and listening to the wonderful sounds of the grand piano being played. Who could want more . The scene from a movie. The choice of seating areas during the day was highlighted in the form of sun loungers, or sitting in comfortable seating in the shade to the lovely relaxing poolside or food area to enjoy lunch while taking in the Beauty of the amazing views. Thank you all for an amazing Anniversary and stay at your wonderful Hotel. see you next year and for many years to come.More

Hotel with a fantastic view

This hotel has a view that takes your breath away from the rooms and the restaurant, our room was one of those rooms 714 although it was a 5 minute walk from reception it was worthwhile !,! The room was cleaned to a high standard, bedsheets changed daily. The staff were very friendly, the food was good with table service and a choice of 4 starters 4 mains and 4 deserts plus a specials selection. This hotel is a 10 minute gentle walk into the town of Sorrento.More

Brilliant hotel

We stayed here for 2 weeks in Sept/Oct and had a wonderful holiday. Had a balcony with magnificent view. Had table (with tablecloth!) on balcony, with 2 chairs and 2 folding recliners. Looked onto main road but never noticed traffic noise. Room was very clean, beds turned down on evening, LOVELY fluffy towels all the time we were there and sheets changed more than any other hotel we've stayed in. I always take a hair dryer on holiday as I find most of those in hotels are not powerful enough. However, these were, so no need to pack one. Plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. Free Wi-Fi but for some unknown reason it worked any time of day for the first week but could hardly receive a signal for any length of time during the second. Mentioned this to hotel reception and they said others had mentioned it too but the mast was in the centre of Sorrento and nothing they could do as so many people staying. All staff were friendly and helpful. Particularly liked Sergio in the dining room, who had a great sense of humour. Meals were very good with plenty of variety from which to choose. They have a brilliant door key system whereby a tiny light on the outside of the wall where you insert your door key, lights up so any member of staff wanting to get into your room knows if you are in or out without knocking at the doors. Such a simple thing but a great idea. When coming home on an evening it was a little tiring coming up the hill if you'd been out all day but you could easily get a local bus or taxi if you wished. My husband and I simply loved this holiday and will certainly stay again at the Bristol.More

Ossie56 excellent hotel

From the time we booked in which was late we received excellent service. We at first did not have a room with a balcony but on inquiring if one was available with the reception staff they noted our request and within a few hours a room was available for us to exchange. Our room we believed to be cleaned by fairies as we did not see any signs of cleaning staff, always cleaned to a high standard, clean sheets every day even on our last which at other hotels (5*) this as not happened. I must give a special mention to Matteo I was unwell one evening and unable to go to dinner he arranged for us to eat in our room and thou we only asked for the main course he included a sweet which went down very well with my husband we also received excellent service from his staff at all times. Location great just a short stroll into the town centre. I can understand why they have so many repeat customers, and my husband and me will be one of those. Last words: staff excellent, service excellent, views excellent and location excellent.More
