The Sorrento maybe wasn't what I was expecting. I try and stay in non-chain hotels when possible, and this place feels more like a B&B than a hotel. My room was clean but small with a pretty small bed. The furniture was beautiful, but it felt like I was staying in a boarding house dorm room. The staff were polite,... More

Stayed with friends in this hotel last week, just for one night B&B basis. It is a family run property ( Italian) and everybody on staff were extremely friendly. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with good quality bathrooms. Breakfast was excellent, served to your table and the restaurant decor was fabulous. The number 3 bus stops right outside...

..I think they are embarrassed to do so. Especially at the price. Where shall I start? Well the first room had a broken light and radiator, and so they kindly moved me into the 'honeymoon suite' .... four poster, Jacuzzi, sauna ... but really only a 1970's bedroom 'done posh'. The telephone/alarm clock said it was 2005 (I re-set it... More

The reception staff were hospitable and friendly. I was reserved a double room downstairs with en suite. The room smelt strongly of mould and damp. After a few minutes I noticed a huge damp patch running up the corner of the room. I asked to be moved and I was without fuss or concern. I think my complaints has been... More

Stayed at the Sorrento Hotel for one night when attending an event at The Junction. Very convenient walking distance for this venue. The room was lovely - more like a proper bedroom than a hotel room, the place was clean and the breakfast was great. The staff were friendly and helpful and there's free parking behind the hotel. The hotel... More

We were booked into stay at the Sorrento.Upon arrival we noticed a bad smell when we entered.The place is very dated in most parts but to be fair the bathrooms looked quite modern. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist who asked us what time we would be eating as we were booked to have an evening meal. We both... More

We stayed 5 nights with my wife in September, visiting our foreign graduate student son, who is renting an apartment at a walking distance from the Sorrento Hotel. This is the only reason we chose it, although the 125 pound door price is expensive for what they offer. The standard room was small but clean, the family staff polite and... More

I stayed here for one night on 1 October 2013, on a business trip. It's well located - walking distance from the station, and a slightly longer walk into the city centre (about 1.5 miles), but close to bus stops etc. It was great value for money - cheaper than most of the alternatives I looked at, especially given its...

To be fair, I don't think it is the intention of the Sorrento Hotel to cater to the business traveler. On the positive side the management was friendly and the hotel was very clean. The hotel is a renovated Victorian house with various room sizes and types. My room was very small, approximately 10 x 12 feet. It did not... More
