We (husband, wife and two teenage girls) stayed in this hotel at the beginning of August 2010. I booked on-line directly with the hotel; two rooms at 200 euros per night per room. The booking process was simple and email questions that I posed in English were clearly and quickly answered.
The hotel was very clean and professionally run.
We had booked for B&B only. However, we could easily flex to having their evening meal if we required.
The hotel rooms that we had were of a good size and a balcony over looking the bay and Sorrento. The furniture was in good condition and the beds large and comfortable. The air conditioning worked and was easily controllable. A couple of criticisms; the bathrooms could probably do with some modernisation, especially in terms of lighting (only note that they are very clean and adequate), and the television channels were not all well tuned (i.e. we got fuzzy pictures on some of the local channels).
Although we did have the option of a la carte menu, we went for the set menu when we did eat in the hotel. The meals were adequate, but not outstanding, although at 30 euros for three courses I think of reasonable value. The service was excellent.
Breakfast was good.
One criticism on the food side of things. We had some sandwiches at the pool side bar. These could certainly be improved.
The pool itself was of a reasonable size, and in good condition. The view over Sorrento from the pool was wonderful.
All in all, am excellent hotel, with a couple of suggestions for improvement.
As for Sorrento, pleasant enough small town with good links to Capri, Pompeii and the rest of the Amalfi coast. One thing to consider however, Sorrento and the Hotel Bristol are quite anglophiled, so if you want a taste of authentic Italy, this is probably not the place for you.
