Reviewed 7 August 2010

We were staying a the hotel Bristol for our honeymoon and could not have wished for a more perfect hotel. The staff were friendly and always willing to help. Our room on the 3rd floor had a perfect view over the Bay of Napels and during our stay we have front row seats of a local firework display. The room was cleaned daily and the mini bar re-stocked, instead of using this I would recommend you go down the road to the local supermarket for better priced drink. There is a bus which stops just outside the hotel and this takes you directly into Sorrento town, however the walk into Sorrento only takes between 5-10 minutes and after the beautiful food either morning or evening it is nice to have a short walk.
We went on 3 trips whilst on holiday we went to Capri and Ancapri, Pompei and Vesuvius and we did the Amalfi Coast Drive.
All I can say is that if you book these through your travel company be warned, they will try and add on extras, meal, boat trip etc however you can generally find food cheaper if not better down the road.

We have recently returned from a two week stay at the Bristol. We can only agree with the majority of reviews on this site. The hotel is in one of the best positions in Sorrento just outside the town but close enough that you can walk into town every evening. It is on a busy road but this isn't a problem as long as you take care. We had a room on the 4th floor in the main building and over the road but the noise of the road didn't bother us at all. The room is cleaned every day and towels and bedding changed regularly. The pool area is on the 7th floor surrounded by sunbeds but we preferred the lower terrace as it was very quiet with fanastic views across the bay. Pool towels are available free of charge from the bar by the pool which means you don't need to take towels with you.
Many people have made negative comments about the food, we thought it was very good the best part being that you were serviced at the table and there was no up and down to the buffet. The service was very good and all the staff were friendly without being 'over the top'.
The drinks in the bar are expensive but a short walk into town to the Kiosk bar is worth while as the drinks here are half the price and the staff are very friendly.
Sorrento is an ideal position from which to visit many places but one word of warning the Thomson trips are really expensive compared to making your own arrangements. We went on the Blue cruise but don't bother unless you want to be crammed onto a boat and hearded around like sheep. Not worth the money or the bother.
All in all this was a great holiday and we would return.

Stayed for a week in July with family. Had a suite with jacuzzi and the kids had a double room in the main building with sea view and great air conditioning. It was a relaxing break and we found the staff were very friendly and efficient. The hotel stands in a commanding position overlooking Sorrento with fabulous views over the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. Plenty to keep you occupied just looking at the view all day. The pool was a highlight - very clean and orderly and the sun loungers all kept in line throughout the day. The food was a slight disappointment in that it lacked typical Italian generosity and if you are not part of the majority British clientele on a package, the set menu dinner at 30 Euros per head doesn't represent the best value, compared to a meal in town. Overall we really enjoyed the holiday - Sorrento is a great base to go visiting Vesuvius, Pompei, Herculaneum and of course the Amalfi coast. p.s. beware the loud bangs in Sorrento at 9pm - gave us a fright the first time!

We wanted a special holiday to celebrate our Silver Wedding, Hotel Bristol met all of our hopes/expectations & more. All the staff are extremely curteous & helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The food is of the highest quality & no meals were repeated in the whole 2 weeks. Cleanliness is of the highest standard. It's in a perfect location within the resort for the shops & the harbour. You can book excursions through reception. Rome is easy to get to from Sorrento (3 hours by train & there's s rail station in Sorrento). We did a 2 day trip to Rome, but made the arrangements ourselves rather than as an organized excursion.

Nice hotel but not 4 star plus,I booked this hotel after reading tripadvisor.I wasnt blown away, room was adequate tea and coffee making facilities would have been nice as is the norm in almost all hotels these days, noise from the road directly outside was annoying at times by night. I must say the staff were very helpfull and friendly, pool area and views from the hotel were lovely but the sun only stays in one half of the pool which is something to watch out for as these loungers become very sought after. We were halfboard but didnt enjoy the evening dinners which at times I felt were poor so ate out mostly.They should have done more with the bar by night although they had music at times, they didnt really do much to create a warm atmosphere there, also walls between hotel rooms were paper thin. Its been my experience with Italian hotels to deduct a star from their ratings to give a better idea of the standards when compared to an irish hotel. Despite the above points the overall experience was pleasent so I would recommend this hotel to a friend after making them aware of the few short comings.

The Bristol Hotel is situated in a superb position with great views from the balconies and the restaurant. Looking out over the bay of Naples during evening dinner was a delight. The service is outstanding and all the staff are welcoming and helpful. The waiters in the restaurant are very smart and they are extremely attentive and friendly. The food was of a consistently high standard throughout our stay. The bedrooms are comfortable and clean with very efficient air conditioning. There is also a lovely swimming pool with a pooside bar.
My overall verdict - Highly recommended.
