Wow, what a place this is. From the moment we arrived we were looked after even when we arrived at 11pm. Matteo and his team waited up to feed us after our journey. We liked our room when we arrived but we had hoped for an upgrade as we were on our honeymoon. It turns out that Thomson forgot to tell them we were on our honeymoon!!!! Salvatore on reception pulled out all the stops to try to sort an upgrade for us which he did by the fourth night of our 14 night stay so we were made up as we got an even better view and the first view was amazing enough. Sadly there were no suites available but never mind - our room 905 was really lovely.
The food in the terrace bar was great - we sometimes swapped dinner for lunch so that we could go out in the evening. The food was excellent in the dining room and there was always lots of choice. Breakfast was pretty good too. Every member of staff was a credit to the hotel as they worked so hard to make sure we had a nice time. We were sad to leave The Bristol as we just loved it.
The pool area and roof terrace were spectacular. I wouldn't recommend you bring kids here, there is nothing there for them and no other kids to play with. Take them somewhere with a kids club. The hotel was mainly older English and Irish couples and honeymooners which we were more than happy with.
We would like to thank all of the staff at the Bristol hotel as together they make this the most wonderful place to stay. Salvatore on reception is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble - the other reception staff are also fantastic. Matteo and his dream team in the restaurant treated us like royalty. Every member of staff spoke to us at every opportunity from the waiters to the cleaning and maintenance staff. What a place!
We really loved Sorrento as well. The hotel is ideally situated just a few minutes walk. There are lots of nice bars in town, we went while the world cup was on so went to English Inn and also Monna Lisa mostly. The food in the restaurant was better than eating out we found. It is worth going to the marina grande and sampling the little restaurant owned by the fishermen as the fish is very fresh as you'd expect.
Amazing place, amazing honeymoon. Thank you
