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.

Great place to relax.

We stayed half board, the menu changed every night. Most dishes where very good with only a couple of exceptions. The location of the hotel was a short walk from the center of Sorrento. I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to be back in the futureMore


Wonderful week in Sorrento

Stayed at The Bristol in June 2016 for a week. Had a room on the seventh floor with amazing views of Vesuvius. Lovely big room and balcony with table, chairs and recliners.Although we enjoyed all our meals in the restaurant, could do with a bit more choice of vegetables or salad though with the evening meal. We went to the Herculaneum on the train, much cheaper than going with Thompson and very easy to do. ( Its free admission on the first Sunday of the month.) We hired a car and went to Amalfi and Postiano, driving in Italy is certainly an experience !! Loved Sorrento and The Bristol Hotel, staff were great, especially the barman who remembered our room number after just one night and made us great cocktails every night! Great weather and a great holiday.More


Amazing hotel in amazing location with old style elegance and service

We have just spent the most glorious week here at The Bristol. We were in a villa at the top of the garden with a four poster bed and huge private terrace with jacuzzi, hammock, sunbeds, hooded day bed, coffee table and easy chairs and a second table and chairs. So much choice of where to sit and the terrace had sun all day from first thing until it went down. But also pockets of shade, including an awning for when it got too hot. The villa was surrounded with fruit trees - lemons, nuts, olives, kiwis - and flowers and trees. The view was out of this world - uninterrupted and over the bay to Vesuvius. A real stunner of a room. Great wifi in the room, powerful aircon and big shower, sofa, big tv. Bed a little hard at first but we slept like logs - so quiet. 10 Things to know: 1. mosquitos. Everywhere. Bring repellent, bands, plug ins, spray, itch cream, whatever you can. I look like I've got measles in places. Shocking. I don't normally get attacked like that - many others were the same. 2. Rooms at the front look like they are in shade most of the day - but there are wonderful sunbeds all over the hotel - you could easily get a cheaper room then find a sunbed somewhere. 3. Drinks are expensive - but rooms have fridges. 4. Food is good. It's non buffet, all served, which is a plus in my book. Dinner is a little old fashioned - I'd prefer to see salads and more grills as options. Lots of oil, sauce etc. a little heavy for me but tasty all the same. 5. The villas are all the way up the hill. Lots of big steps on a camber - if hills or steps or mobility generally are a problem for you, don't book one - plenty of room options on lower floors. 6. No need to bring beach towels - they loan them at the pool. Use the space for more mossie repellent! 7. You can swap dinner for lunch if you want - we only did this once (see below) as we found we usually weren't hungry between breakfast and dinner. 8. Ask at reception for their handy sheet of bus, ferry and train times. From desk are great - they know everything and very helpful. 9. It's a 10 min walk into town; 20 mins to the ferry port and train station. You can cut through the campsite down to the marina grande (lovely) but there are lots of steps - don't use the handrails - they are covered in ants!). 10. There's an amazing fish restaurant at the Marina Grande run by six fishermen - swap dinner for lunch one day and try it! Staff are amazing, nothing too much trouble We've returned home feeling really chilled, rested and pampered. I can't recommend highly enough. We booked with Citalia with private transfers - the least packagy package ever. Loved it. More


2nd visit didn't disappoint!

We spent 10 days at the Bristol in July and we had a wonderful time. The views are fabulous, and the hotel staff are really helpful. I had a fall before the holiday and whilst I was there found the bath hard to get in and out of. The staff very kindly found us a room with a walk in shower - a junior suite with no extra charge. This was our second visit and everything was as good as the previous visit. We were half board and the waiter service in the restaurant with those wonderful views was excellent. They really make you feel special. We will be back!More
