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.

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

What a view!!!

The rooms are spacious with all amenities. The breakfast was very lovely with everything that you could want. But, for me, the view did it. You are up high, overlooking the town of Sorrento and the Bay of Naples. Can't do much better than that. The walk into town is very short and yet there is quiet because it is on the way to the hinterlands. If possible, ask for a room on the 2nd floor or higher, as there are no balconies on the 1st floor and the balcony is a must.More


Bristol view in Sorrento

Hotel Bristol The first thing to say is that the staff does go out of their way to give good service. When we arrived late from the evening flight they had get the kitchen open to serve us a meal at 11pm. Secondly the view of the Sorrento bay and the mountains from the terrace in our room was spectacular, and lifted the spirits every time you sat outside, whether morning, afternoon or evening. Next a couple of hotel niggles: I have never seen a sign on the fridge in the room that advised, “It is forbidden to remove items from the fridge to store personal goods.” This was bound to cause a complaint as when I placed some water we had purchased and went out for the day, expecting a nice cool glass of water on return, we saw that our bottle had been left on top of the fridge. Cue for a complaint at the reception. We have travelled and stayed in many hotels in the world and never come across this before as we had not removed any of the Hotel items from the fridge. Having made my complaint to the Hotel’s credit we were contacted by management who discussed in full and items we then placed in the fridge from that first complaint were then left in the fridge. The second item that we could not control was the air conditioning which was controlled by the reception desk and not by your room control. The room also could have done with a heated towel rail as there was a musty smell in the bathroom, and it would have been nice to have a hook inside on the bathroom door to place our own bathrobes that we had to bring with us, as the hotel only provided slippers. There was also no coffee/tea facilities after the first day, but you could purchase some from reception. Lastly when is a safe not a safe? Yes when the instructions are incorrect, as we found out eventually that the code had to be input twice. Having said the above niggles we did enjoy our stay at the Hotel Bristol as the service was very good, the meals for the most part enjoyable, though it would have been nice to have a slightly larger breakfast plate. The views as explained from the bedroom terrace were great and we were on the fourth floor. The gardens were good to walk around and the pool area very nice, though it was cold to go in for a swim as the pool is not heated. The walk into Sorrento town takes about 7 minutes and there is also a good shop about 100 yards down the road for water, wine etc. The weather for the 10 days at the beginning of October was fantastic being sunny and 25/26C. I have given a separate entry on the delights of Sorrento, and the trips that we organised ourselves. Regards. Gary SaundersMore

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


Excellent hotel and service, road noise/pollution a problem

We stayed here at the end of September, and had a great time. The hotel is well run and spotlessly clean, and the staff really can't do enough for you. The views from nearly all parts of the hotel, including the rooms, across the bay of Naples is breathtaking. The evening meal menu is limited, but we always found something we enjoyed and never needed to resort to the optional 'A La Carte' menu which was available each night in both restaurants and quite expensive. The only downside was that we booked late and were allocated room 173 which was in the annex on the 1st floor. The room its self was excellent and spacious but the road noise and smell of sulphur in the morning was not pleasant. The traffic outside the hotel was grid locked from 7am until almost 10. Others in higher rooms had no problems, so insist on 3rd floor minimum! That said we had a great time and if we return we'll book earlier and get a top floor room or suite.More
