“Great Beachy Style Motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We stayed only one night and found the Sorrento Beach Motel charming. Although an older style motel it has been decorated in a lovely beachy style way. The room was well equipped and very clean. The grounds were very well maintained and the owner very friendly and helpful. Although the motel was not cheap it is Sorrento which is a very expensive area. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for one night at the Sorrento Beach Motel. It was very clean and comfortable. They provide tea, coffe, milk and biscuits. The fridge is very useful and also the microwave. Location very good as not too far to walk to the centre and beach.

A delight to stay in this Motel (I always rate properties given their star rating which means that it is excellent for a 4 star hotel). Super friendly owner was very helpful on arrival and as our rate included breakfast we were pleased to see that it could be delivered the night before.

The town is a great place to visit - fabulous old buildings and very picturesque. And the motel is so close to everything.

We delighted at a very expensive morning tea at the local bakery ("Home of the famous Vanilla Slice") with a huge but delicious Vanilla slice, Chocolate Croissant Cake and 2 coffees at a surprising $35. Still the slice was worth the expense (provided you compare its cost against a restaraunt dessert!).

The room was nice, clean and modern. Comfy bed - unlike many regional motels. The owner seems to be continually upgrading the place as they were installing new 40inch TV to replace (in our case) a perfectly good LCD TV already in the unit.

Would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is well presented and the owners/managers. It is an 80's style motel in the traditional style, not the sort of place to wow your new girlfriend but a good solid place to stay, even if a little on the expensive side.

My husband I stayed at this lovely motel for one night recently on our way to The Great Ocean Road. Booked at last minute and received very reasonable rate as well as a beautifully presented room. We did not feel as though we were in a motel as the room was so light and spacious. It was our first visit to Sorrento and when Carol realised this she was able to give us some tips on where to go to make the most of our short visit. This advice meant we enjoyed a beautiful sunset at Portsea, a lovely Italian meal for dinner and a breakfast by the ocean before getting our ferry to Queenscliff. Thanks again Carol - we will be back!

Sorrento is a charming village, spread along the Western part of the Mornington Peninsular. Great beaches, esp on the South Side facing Bass Strait. The motel itself is rather simple, but it has its own quiet charm. However, the prices are very steep - perhaps double what I would expect in the circumstances.
