We have been to Sorrento before and knew the location of the Bristol, and it did not disappoint - great views especially from the Terrace. A 10 minute walk into the centre - no need for the hassle of courtesy buses! On arrival we asked to change our room as it did not look out over Sorrento, just the sea but they changed it immediately. This was our first experience of the service and Reception are just wonderful (Salvatore sorted the room and we just loved him!). The view was great but we were on the 2nd floor and would go higher if we could to blot out some of the road noise (at night it was fine as shutters and doors shut out most of it).
Room good. Bathroom fine and shower excellent although we found that after there was a puddle on the floor as water somehow escaped at the corner of the shower.
Swmming pool and that whole area (terrace and bar) was really nice - clean and well looked after. Bar staff very hospitable. Sitting out on the Terrace just looking at the view = fantastic.
Dining room again had lovely views. Breakfast was good - always replenished and we were late arrivals generally. We stayed half board and dinner was okay - did not set your heart alight and portions were small. Not a problem as it invited us to have lunch and Sorrento spoils you! But the dining experience was made so much better because of the service - all the waiters were just so friendly, and provided such a great service. My partner said she was disappointed that tiramasu was not on the menu - her favourite. On her last night when the waiter asked what we had chosen there was some nods, distractions and he disappeared and came back with a special tiramasu just for us - it was gorgeous and showed how they would go out of their way to try and make your stay better.
To summarise a really good choice for Sorrento - good hotel, great location but made better because of the staff - every single one of them!
