“Magnifico !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2010

What a fantastic place, but lets start at the begining,
Booked through Tomson paid for extra leg room seats and bottle of bubbly as it was my 50th birthday.
Check in at Manchester was brilliant normally a boring task but the chap on our check in desk was superb, what a joker great start (sorry didnt get his name but brilliant) Plane wasnt full but we had a full row to ourselves with loads of room (row 13 was not unlucky for us!) Our bubbly was put on ice and served when chilled the girls on board were great. Our transfer to the hotel took longer than expected due to the traffic around naples but our rep gave us usefull info on the way.Then we arrived just as the sun was setting WOW !! Sorrento beautiful !! Then came the Hotel Bristol, from entering, the service was top class, we had booked a junior suite our luggage was brought to our room and we were shown to our room by the one of the guys on the desk. Another bottle of bubbly was waiting on ice in our room. Large room with seating area, flat scereen TV great for watching the world cup ? Large balcony with sunbeds, table & chairs and then the view awsome !! Worth the extra money for the sea view plus our balcony got the sun all day didnt use the pool area although looked very nice. Meals were good lots of fish choice on evening menu loved them all. Plenty choice for breakfast and again a view to drink in all day. All the areas were relaxed and calming , clean and very well kept. Yes like every body else we did go to the little shop down the road for bottles etc and had them our balcony,Sorrento is a special place lots of little alleys with restaurants and shops tried a few through the day time all loveley and cheaper than the main square.Read about the kiosk bar on trip advisor before we went, and yes it is good value with good priced drinks and lovely coffee.The Bristol is above the Marina Grande you can walk down to it through the camp site lts quicker than you think and nice restaurants down there.Try the foreignrs club in town again good prices and views. We booked the trips to pompeii & Herculanium, were good but not enough time take the advice of everybody Do It Yourself by train, You can hire audios to guide you around and its a lot cheaper, I was amazed how big pompeii is. We also did the Amalfi drive this by coach was loveley very scenic and our guide IRIS was great , we also went on a boat (not included in price) around the bays saw some of the Villas of the rich & famous again stunning views. I would 100% go again it all exceeded my expections the only downfall was the flight home the service was not very good and our legroom seats were this time at the front NOT GOOD as people were waiting for the Toilet and the crew "hung around" in this are too, was pointless.
Not a bucket & spade holiday but go you will love it.

Spectacular views,a great suite, friendly staff, and about a two block walk to town......what more could you ask for. By far the nicest hotel that we stayed at during our 3 week trip to Italy. We felt the only thing that they could improve on was breakfast. They treated us like royalty.....awesome views...food just a little lacking. There were many choices that maybe were not typically what americans eat for breakfast. Still maybe 3 star and everything else about hotel was a 5 star. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone. It is the best point for exploring the Amalfi Coast.

We stayed at The Bristol last week for the end of our honeymoon and had to come on here to write about it as we had a fantastic time there! The staff were so friendly and helpful, breakfast was really, really good (fresh fruit, cakes, bread, pastries, cereal, cold meats, cheese, cooked food, eggs/sausage/bacon, yoghurts, juice, tea/coffee, champagne!) - and served in a lovely room with the nicest views over Sorrento.

We stayed in room 914 - it had a large terrace with table, chairs, sun beds and a jacuzzi- well worth the extra money for a special stay here! The pool area is very nice, with a relaxing terrace and bar. Its close enough to town to walk, probably about 5-10 minutes, there is a little shop nearby (just over the road) for any essentials or snacks!

Cannot recommend this hotel enough!!

We decided on the Bristol Hotel after lots of searching for the right hotel for us in Sorrento. We stayed in a junior suite with sea view and balcony on the seventh floor, which was fantastic! We have never seen views as spectacular as from this hotel, in particularly our balcony, which was spacious and very clean. The junior suites are very large and had a bathroom and lounge on one level, and a step down to the bedroom and balcony. We also arrived to find that as we had missed dinner, a cold meal and dessert had been plated up for us in our airconditioned room.

All the staff that work at this hotel are excellent. They could not have been more helpful or friendly and did everything with a smile on their face. No request was too much.

The food in the Bristol is also very good. At breakfast there was always plenty to choose from, hot and cold, even a kind of cheesecake, which was fantastic!! The evening meal was also to a high standard, and no complaints about the portion sizes, the starters were the same size as the main courses!

We thought the location of this hotel had to be one of the best in Sorrento. On the road leading out of town its about a ten minute walk into the centre of Sorrento and the Piazza Tasso and is only slightly uphill. Most hotels dont have the view that the Bristol has, especially from the generous sized pool and the dining room.

If you do fancy eating outside the hotel, we reccommend a restaurant called Aurora on the Piazza Tasso. The food is fabulous, reasonably priced and its always full and popular with locals (which is always a good sign!).

We highly recommend staying at the Bristol Hotel as it and its staff really made our holiday, we wouldnt stay anywhere else!

We have just spent a week at The Bristol Hotel in Sorrento. What a treat! The hotel is clean and spacious. The bedrooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean. We had a magnificient view from our balcony. The food was good and best of all, the staff were courteous, friendly and made everyone feel special. We met so many lovely people during our week there and they all agreed - The Bristol is a truly great hotel.
We cant wait to go back again!

I visited the Hotel Bristol in May 2010 and it really is a beautiful hotel. Staff were very friendly and always made time to ask how your day has been. Cleanliness was excellent and our room was cleaned daily with no complaints whatsoever. If you have a big appetite then you may be disappointed with the size of the meals but the quality of them was very good and there was nothing that I had that I could complain about. The views from this hotel are spectacular and it is what they say picture perfect on a clear day. Congratulations to all the staff there for making us feel so very welcome.
If anyone reading this has booked with Thomson Holidays I really must stress that you read your booking form before you go and not be disappointed in the way I was. It was my 50Th Birthday and the thought of sitting on a balcony looking out at that fantastic view filled me excitement as I have visited Sorrento many times and I knew what to expect but also knew the location of the hotel Bristol was excellent. Confusion with our booking meant that we paid for a superior room with sea view ( which was beautiful ) at an extra cost ( which we thought included a balcony )but when we arrived there was no balcony. When we asked the reception they said sorry but the hotel was full, so although we had a sea view it was like looking out of my bedroom window at home, standing up to see the extraordinary view. So my memories of that view are not what they should be. Once again you won't be disappointed with this hotel but be very careful with the tour operator and don't go to Sorrento if you can't get a balcony . Have a wonderful time !!!!!!

Went with Thompsons holidays, was really pleased with standard of hotel and service. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Food was good and rooms were comfortable. Views were out of this world. Well done Bristol Hotel and best service of all was from our Thompsons holiday advisor Katherine. She was a diamond. Thompsons, give this lady a rise - she was that good!
