“Awful”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

From the moment of first contact with Oceanic it was clear they couldn't care less whether we stayed or not. However, we were attending a wedding and needed somewhere to stay. For the price we paid ($265 per night), I'm afraid I assumed comparable service and facilities. Breakfast was not included in this price.

The room was dirty - thick layer of dust on crockery, dead insects and cobwebs. The managements response was that the room had been cleaned. There was no apology or enquiry as to what could be done or offer to send someone to deal.

The guesthouse had all the atmosphere of a cafeteria. This place is a total rip off.

We stayed there only for 1 night, thankfully!

the room was not exactly nice, just the bad and a lamp.

Nothing bad but,considering the price and everything I'd not suggest anyone to stay there.

We were really looking forward to staying in this lovely old Guesthouse in Sorrento but it fell well short of our expectations. The service was poor, the people unfriendly - I guess I expected an exuberant owner-operated B&B but the staff seemed bored and unexcited about this lovely old house. The carpet was threadbare in places, the kitchen was locked from like 6pm, the courtyard which looked lovely on the website was tired and looked unmaintained, the rooms were basic - they forgot to give us t-bags, only gave us 1 cup for 3 people etc. It is a lovely old building but seems to be unmaintained (insude and out) and the service was well below par - espcailly considering the price!!

I've stayed in Whitehall guesthouse three or four times - most recently last weekend. I love the old style feel, the shared bathrooms (there are rooms with ensuites for a bit more), the shared loungerooms, the dining room for breakfast because it feels like you're in a different time. The carpets do need replacing but it appears to have been freshly painted recently. The shared bathrooms are in very good condition. The rooms are very basic - no drawers/wardrobes but for a couple of nights stay you probably don't need much more than that. All in all I think this is a good place if you're looking for budget accommodation in a fantastic location.

A good location - close to beach and walking distance from town centre. Apartments were fine and breakfast excellent.

We booked Whitehall Guesthouse Sorrento with a little trepidation but we were very pleasantly surprised.

The Ensuite guest room was spacious and welcoming and the bathroom was clean and well stocked. We had everything we needed in the room for a lovely weekend away.

The staff were very helpful and after a small mix-up regarding our continental breakfast on the first morning of our stay, were generous enough to offer us a breakfast sitting for just the two of us.

It is an easy walk to Sorrento and the beach from Whitehall. There are are a number of rooms within the guesthouse where you can sit and relax while reading the paper or a book, play the piano or a game of pool or just sit and enjoy a glass of wine next to the fire.

We are planning to stay at Whitehall again.

Oh yes.....the carpets in the hallways are showing some wear but we thought that it added to the charm of the place.

Although the location of this guesthouse is in a prime location it was disappointing that the service made us feel unwelcome. After booking a room for a friends wedding with all the rooms booked by guests for the wedding we could not believe the service of the staff. The room we stayed in which was a budget room was run down. The toilet and shower facilities were all renovated and great. The staff were very rude to the bride of the day when having photos and spoke very rudely to the bridal party. After telling us breakfast was served from 8 they then told us off for coming to breakfast at 8 and said it started at 8.30. Unlike the other persons review on here there was no pastries or hot food it was just toast and cereal. I would not return to this guest house instead stay at the lodge across the road which other guests from the wedding stayed at and said it was great.
