We love staying at the Whitehall and can't recommend it highly enough. We've been regular visitors for the past year and plan to go back as often as we can. It's a beautiful place with charm, character and a great history. We love relaxing on the wonderful balcony watching the sun go down over Sorrento, listening to the waves crash... More

Just stayed at the Whitehall guesthouse. The room was simple as expected but did not even have a tele. Room was freezing, could not get the heater to work either. The bed was terrible - like a rock, I have slept on more comfortable beds in a hostel. The walls are also not sound proof. You can hear everything! People... More

This was the only place we could find last minute accomodation in Sorrento, so gladly booked it. Did not have much expectations, so were not disappointed at all. Pros: Location is perfect, the bathrooms for most rooms are shared but really clean and tidy. The morning breakfast is simple yet very filling. The view from the balcony is quite good.... More

We chose to stay at Whitehall due to location. 300m to back-beach and 350 to town/shops. This Fawlty Towers like accommodation was built in 1904 and has 31 rooms, some with ensuites, 3 star guesthouse that provides continental breakfast (B & B) earliest time 8.30am. Booked a budget room with Wotif $130, room number 15 was ok for 1 night... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights as a means to explore this part of the world and also complete the Portsea Twilight event in the first week of January. The place is large and imposing and whilst it looks as though it may have once been a grand guesthouse, to us it was almost like a rundown guesthouse/hostel.... More

My family (2A+2C) stayed for one night in January 2014. When I was a kid my parents brought me here for our summer holiday every year for about 10 years. Back then it was a bustling Guesthouse, always full and with lost going on; cricket in the carpark, tennis matches, three meals a day, pool and table tennis a-plenty. I... More

This lovely old building is a curious type of accommodation: it seems too good to be a basic lodging house, but not well enough presented to be luxury accommodation. Its a step up from a motel and more like staying in a grand old country town pub that is being gradually updated. The public rooms on the ground floor are... More

I was a little leery of the low price for the cheapest rooms, but it was fine. Comfy bed, good linens, clean shower/toilet rooms just outside my door. Good breakfast, friendly folks. I would surely return!

This guesthouse was a wonderful find. It was too cheap to believe and we were not sure what to expect. The carpets are worn and the building is old. The rooms are large and clean and have a hand basin. The shared bathrooms are plentiful, modern and well appointed. A small kitchenette on each floor makes life very comfortable. Breakfast... More

My partner and I stayed in the guesthouse on a Friday and Saturday night. We had a room with a little ensuite which included a bath (bath/shower combination). Overall the room was nice, but perhaps in need of a bit of a touch up. There were some cracks and obvious patch ups on the walls, but the décor was quite... More
