If you wish to visit the Ligurian Coast I would recommend Rapallo which is a beautiful town which is very well located for exploring. The Hotel Bristol is within a 12 minute walk along a coastal path to the town. It is located on a bit of an incline giving you fabulous views of Rapallo, Santa Margherita and Portofino. The...

This was the penultimate hotel in our honeymoon tour, and of the five hotels we stayed in over two weeks it was our absolute favourite. Firstly the setting is wonderful, and the hotel itself is a beautifully presented building with great facilities throughout (parking, pool, spa, breakfast - all top notch). It’s also situated just off the seafront with a...

The hotel was very nice. The only reason I did not review it higher, the bedding was very uncomfortable and the shower needed some attention! About a 20 minute walk to town. The cabs are a ripoff. A 3 minute ride from the train to the hotel 15 Euro. If you are going to chinque terra leave early. To get...

We booked this hotel as the photos looked incredible. It boasted a pool, fitness suit, and spa. We opted for sea view delux rooms. Our bedroom looked great in the first instance until closer inspection, the balcony door was filthy, there was damp in the bathroom and mould in the shower. Our cupboard had a missing drawer which meant I...

Reading the reviews of other travellers, I have to admit that many people see the glass half empty, while it is in fact half full! We have thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Grand Bristol! The setting is one of the best and the views are amazing. Yes, there is a crane in front and yes, you cannot...

Gorgeous setting, lovely pool and spa, food and service nice. But, a 4 Star comes off cheap when : there is a charge for room wifi, 15 in TV on a table in the corner, handkerchief sized pillows with almost no stuffing. Great potential with views and all, but no way they can call themselves 4 star, hardly a 3....

Fantastic view and very nice, quiet and large pool. Lovely old building with lots of character. However, charging for (very slow) wifi in 2016 is not acceptable in a 4 star hotel. The photos of the gym on the website are misleading - there is in reality no more than a few machines by the pool. I asked for ice...

We have just spent three nights away at this hotel and we found the staff to be positive and helpful, the rooms were clean and spacious, the facilities were good, the food was lovely and it was only a short (but very pleasant walk) into town.
