Reviewed 8 May 2006

We stayed at the Hotel Bristol from the 22nd April to the 29th April 2006. The occassion was the wedding of our daughter SallyAnne to Colman in Positano. This is a superb hotel. The facilities are excellent, the staff are friendly, courteous and obliging. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was doable. Ercole in reception went out of his way to help with any problems we had. We are looking forward to returning to this beautiful place.

We just returned from our two week holiday in Italy, and the Hotel Bristol provided the highlight of our trip. The staff quickly learned our names, and were extremely accomodating. We booked a triple room to include our teenage daughter, and the room had a terrace overlooking the bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius -- beautiful! We only booked breakfast with our room, and there was always a large spread, including pastries and bread, meats and cheeses, eggs and sausages. The pool area was clean and gorgeous and we spent Easter Sunday there listening to authentic Italian music while soaking up the sun. Our only disappointment was that we weren't allowed to use the sauna because Italy has a new law which requires a doctor's permission to use a sauna, and there wasn't a doctor available on Easter Sunday. When we returned from our holiday, we received an email from the hotel stating that a local restaurant where we had dinner one evening overcharged us, and they wanted to help us get the charges returned! Great hotel, great staff, great views!

Tynan family, European tour (THE Highlight !).

Our family had been driving through central Europe for four weeks when the cold got the better of us (Australians). My wife had fond memories of Sorrento and so we drove there from Vienna. We arrived late afternoon at the Hotel Bristol, fresh from a minor collision on the motorway (at 170K/Hr) so were in need of both rest AND help.
Ercole, the Manager of the Hotel, made us feel at home at once.
The magnificent views,food,service and help with the local police made our stay the high point of our two months touring.
I questioned Ercole about the account because I thought we had been undercharged, he was correct to the cent.
We'll be back in October for a longer stay

The trip to Sorrento was to celebrate a fortieth birthday, so we were looking for something special and the Hotel Bristol did not disappoint. We were promised a “lovely room” and got it in spades. The room was huge with a lounge area, bedroom, bathroom and wrap around balcony. The five headed shower was to die for and if I could have put it in my suitcase and taken it home with me, I would have. The hotel staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and the views were stunning. All in all a great place to become 40!!

I have stayed at the Bristol twice, and both times was met with courteous staff, clean rooms, wonderful meals, and incredible views. The rooms have balconies overlooking the town of Sorrento, Bay of Naples, and Mt. Vesuvius. Simply spectacular! It is an easy and pleasant walk from the hotel into the town of Sorrento. It is definitely a place I will stay again.

Hotel Bristol lovely hotel and views brilliant but i would advise not to take the food option. Breakfast consists of cakes, croissants,fresh fruit salad which is all apple and evening meal very basic and repetitive not 4 star standard. The staff are loveley and very helpful but don't go in feb resort not open yet so limited shops and restaurants open. Would advise to take your own kettle as hotel got no facilities to purchase tea or coffee.
