The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. It was a cold weekend so it was comforting to know that there was heating available in the room. Breakfast was included in the price and was perfect and newspapers were available if you wanted to linger on a little longer and relax. It has a very laid back feel and in... More

Well a lot changes in sixty years, but this lovely old building has kept pace with the changes. A long standing feature of the Sorrento landscape on the road between the front beach and the changed, but still magical, Salt Air Rock pool at Sorrento Back Beach, and situated on the line of what was "the old Sorrento tramway". Beautiful... More

This is the perfect location for those who like early morning walks along the beach. The hotel is the last building on the street before it descends to the car park at Sorrento beach just 500m walk away. The building itself is over 100 years old and is full of character. The dining area and reception are huge, as are... More

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Whitehall. The house itself is lovely and it's great to stay somewhere with a bit of history. A few tips though: 1. There is a large range of rooms in terms of size and quality. I'm not sure how the pricing structure works but that wasn't clear to me when I booked. Would... More

Our group of 40 people stayed at the Whitehall Guesthouse as part of a charity bicycle ride from Adelaide to Melbourne in early April 2015. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms clean and tidy. Some of the rooms have shared bathrooms but for a group of our size, and being a charity the accommodation was perfect for us.

My daughter booked 1 nights stay here as we had decided to stay in Sorrento at the last minute and just wanted a basic, budget priced room. When we booked by phone the staff member was very friendly and helpful and we found all staff the same throughout our stay. We were allowed to use our room over an hour... More

As a middle aged couple, we chose an upstairs room with an ensuite and were happy with our two-night stay over the Easter holiday. We slept well, breakfast was light but adequate, the room was clean and had a TV and bar fridge with tea and coffee-making facilities, clothes hangers on the wall but no cupboards. There was the odd... More

Worst stay ever, sooooo loud with shared toilets . Every cough - step and word you can hear echo through out . Not a place for a quiet getaway . Breakfast was fine just freezing cold . Should turn it into a museum not a place of business

No air in the rooms, stifling, you can hear every step, breath, noise, door and tap as the walls and doors are paper thin. Beds fine, breakfast fine. Shared toilets and showers cleaned only once a day so bins and towels are piled sky high, toilets are a disgrace. Need to clean them more. More of a backpacker hostel than... More
