We spent 10 days here in June, and everything about the hotel was perfect. Check in was accomplished in minutes and we were whisked to our rooms in no time. We were on the 8th floor and had a perfect view across the bay. The room was immaculately clean and the bed comfortable. Everything about the hotel was great, from the friendly staff and good food choice. We stayed half board and thought the selection of food offered both at breakfast and dinner excellent, with both traditional Italian and English food choice available. Guests could also choose to eat at lunch time instead of evening if they so wished although we didn't take up this option as we were always to full up after breakfast! The pool was lovely with plenty of sunbeds and there was a separate small paddling pool for kids, although to be honest I wouldn't recommend this hotel, or in fact Sorrento for children, although when we stayed there was a couple of parents with babies and toddlers. The garden area is well worth a visit as it's very peaceful and pretty, there's also a small childrens play area here, with a crazy golf course and ping pong table. The hotel itself is on a busy main main road so the walk into the centre of Sorrento, although only about 10 minutes, can be pretty scary. There is a better walk to the centre through a lane just passed the shop on the left hand side ( down the steps) which although slightly longer than walking along the road, is much safer and more pleasant than walking along the road. You can also go this way to the Marina, which is also worth a visit. The train and bus station is about a 20 minute walk away and it's easy to catch a train to Pompey or Herculeum from here. Capri is also worth visiting ( a 40 minute boat ride from the main Marina)- I would recommend going on the ski lifts in Capri- the view is amazing. All in all the Hotel Bristol and our holiday was perfect and I would highly recommend this hotel. A special thank you to Mateo, who was always so cheerful in the mornings and always seemed to remember our room number when we couldn't.
