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.

Italian service at its best

Can't really add anything to the great reviews already written about this hotel other than it is rare that you encounter such pleasant staff who work so well together. They are a brilliant team and that includes those in the kitchen who serve up consistently great pasta and risotto dishes. The cakes take some beating too. If you are looking for a bright, contemporary hotel then the Hotel Bristol will not be for you. However, if you are looking for a hotel full of Italian charm you should enjoy staying here.More

We had a brilliant holiday.

The Bristol is an amazing hotel and Sorrento is a charming city. I fell in love with the Bristol from the moment we were dropped off. The staff are very attentive and friendly, the decor is unusually different and quite quaint, and, where ever you are, the views are spectacular. All parts of the hotel are clean and there is close attention to detail. Service is friendly and efficient. The restaurant staff in particular are brilliant, as is the food. We stayed for 10 days and the dinner menu was changed daily. Pasta and risotto featured frequently, not surprisingly, but were delicious and varied. Breakfast choice was more limited but the quality of food was good, always fresh, and eggs were cooked to order. The cheesecake was gorgeous. Bar staff were also great. Choice of drinks was reasonable (lots of lovely Prosecco) and lovely savoury snacks served with drinks. There were always beds to spare by the pool and on the terrace...views are second to none. The Thomson rep, Martin, was knowledgable and refreshingly honest, with a great sense of humour. We enjoyed a few excursions and highly recommend the 'select' trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum. There is so much to see and do, we are planning to visit again. It's a great holiday for mixing a bit of culture and plenty of R & R. Although the hotel was full, it always felt calm and peaceful. Very few children stayed (even though it was August) and all were delightful. The only blemish on the holiday was an overly long wait (1 hour 25 mins) on the transfer bus before leaving the airport. We had to wait for a delayed flight from Manchester to arrive. Thomson Holidays should have organised a second bus for the delayed guests, in my view.More

One of the great hotels

We stayed here for a week recently. I must say, the hotel grew on me a little ,more every day. The staff are first rate and the place is run like a military machine. The views are spectacular over the bay of Naples. Food was good but not spectacularly good but it was the service that made the difference. The place exudes the classic quality old hotel feel. Great place to stay will be back. ps. Liked the USB charger power sockets (including UK type) Didn't like the slooooooooooooow wifiMore

Ideal honeymoon location

My new wife and I had a week long honeymoon at Hotel Bristol. We were on a half board basis. Our outward bound flight was delayed and we arrived at the hotel just in time for evening meal. To be honest we didn't have great expectations for the hotel food based on previous experiences. Oh on this occasion we were so wrong. From entering the 7th floor dining room the scene was set for a wonderful meal. The tables are all arranged to afford as many as possible the opportunity to take in the stunning panoramic views over Sorrento bay. We were presented with very extensive food menu and wine list. We were very impressed by the quality of the food at both breakfast and evening meal times. Our room had a small balcony overlooking the bay. The room was clean and well maintained. We had only booked our holiday at short notice having gotten married three months after getting engaged and were therefore too late to do the big honeymoon experience. My wife asked pre travel were any suites available for our visit. However none were. During our stay however one became available having just been renovated. The hotel management upgraded us free if charge for our last two nights. This was obviously spotlessly clean having just been renovated. This suite had a beautiful balcony with outdoor hot tub. The views were amazing. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The food is spot on and the staff are very good and friendly. Location is good too with a 10 minute walk to the town centre. Great stay.... We will return soon which is something we rarely do as there are so many places to visit but this hotel and setting are so worth a return visit. More


A week of pleasure

Our stay at The Bristol Hotel was most enjoyable, all the reviews were right great hotel great location attentive and experienced staff. We had a speedy effortless check in and bags delivered to our room. We had a sea view and balcony and a fantastic view across to Napoli and Vesuvius. The room was immaculate lovely big shower mini bar (pricey) and very quiet air conditioning. The Hotel exudes class at every level from the décor in public places to garden and pool area. A special thank you to Matteo and Sergio for making our stay so enjoyable the quality of the food and the choice of dishes were first class. We never go back but I think we will make an exception with the Bristol and plan to return in a few years time confident that the standards will be maintained and to see the friends we made during our stay. Cannot find a fault at all.More
